    Glock 18 carry :-)

    OK - I am in facetious mood LOL!

    Let's say you had all the paperwork and carried one (if even legal!)- albeit with a shorter mag than the 30 rounder (or is it 33?) - what the heck sorta carry piece would this be?

    OK - just fantasizing!

    Huh? Where did that picture come from?
    Wow! Chris - You Imagined It & Here It Is!

    I posted about would ya carry a full auto if you could quite a while ago most said not .. What kind of carry piece would a Glock 18 be????

    More fun than a carry piece i think... The 17 round mags dont quite give you a long rate of fire and i think carrying the 33 rounders would be uncomfortable

    I stand by my initial statement and would add a little to it.

    I feel there is no real reason I should not be legally qualified to purchase such a thing.

    The catch is that even if these things were on the open market, they would charge outrageous prices for them still because, well, they could.

    Even at that, say I did get my hands on one, I STILL wouldn't carry it.

    For one I think it's irreponsible to fire more shots than absolutely necessary. I see no reason why a double action revolver or semiautomatic pistol cannot deliver enough firepower for my personal protection. If anything these guns shoot faster than I do not the other way around.

    For another, dear God, the lawsuits you would get if you ever did have to use it in personal defense...

    It's a 31 rounder, but mine has the +2 base making it a 33 rounder. Now all I need is the G18 to go with it.

    Thinking about the value of the gun I probably wouldn't carry it. Since it could be fired semi-auto I would use it that way vs full-auto if I ever did carry it. However given that, I'd just carry my G17. Eliminate the lever and perception.

    Heres a dumb question.

    Whats that thing that looks like a decocker on the slide, under the rear sight?
    Is it to select between F.A. and S.A.?

    I had not seen (or remembered) your thread Bud - sorry if this was repetitious. As I mentioned it was a pure facetious thought at the time - with VERY obvious practical limitations!

    Clever tho how the pic appeared over night (thx QK!! ).

    If I could have a FA pistol it would one of two - CZ75 with SP01 magazines, or a Beretta 93R with the stock 21 round mags. Prefer the CZ...:)
    If total government control equals safety, why are prisons so dangerous?

    Leroy Thompson has done a couple of reviews on the 18, with a pretty fair assessment of "practical applications". Having had the opportunity to fire an M-16, and MP-5, and granted that the cyclic rate on the G-18 is (IIRC) about the same as the MP-5, I would say that it would have to be for someone extremely cool under pressure. You can touch off +/-3round bursts with a standard 3 position group on an MP-5 (not 3-round configured), if you are conscious of trigger control. If you are very familiar with Glock, and are able to take advantage of the minimal reset distance in SA, I would think you could "enjoy" practical use of an 18.
