    I've owned three of them (Glock.45s) and they were all great guns but found I like the 9MM better so now I carry a G26.
    If .45 cal is your thing ,go for it

    I have a G21SF and 2 G30SF's...they all rock. Excellent handguns, as far as no external safety to contend with, IMHO that's a plus. Not putting down 1911 style guns at all, since I carried some type of Colt for 34 yrs as a EDC. Glock 45 recoil is quite soft to me, and the G30SF is extremely accurate. Check them out and see which one feels the best in your hand and go with that one.
    Good luck and always stay safe.

    My favorite 45 Glocks are the 38 & 39 in 45 GAP.
    The 38 has the same frame / grip size as a model 19 (9mm) or 23 (40).
    The 39 has the same frame size as the 26/27
    The difference is the slide is slightly wider on the 45 models.

    It would help if we knew which .45 Glock are you considering.

    If you prefer a little thinner grip, the Glock-36 is a fine weapon. I carry one on my Harley in an IWB at 5:00.

    I have been thinking of getting a Glock 36 myself. I have leaned to like my Glock 26 and really like the way it conceals pretty easy.

    Think the 36 would be easy to conceal also being a single stack and lighter than my 1911's.

    First off, all Glocks have 3 safeties, trigger, drop, and a firing pin safety.

    Prices vary by location and if the weapon is new or used.

    I had a m1911 for a little while but just bought the Glock 37 .45 GAP and love it. I've found it's pretty easy to conceal and it's significantly lighter than my other guns. If your buying a Glock .45 I would recommend that one. I've shot the 36 many many times and am very fond of it too... up to you.
    Really... I believe you..

    I say go for it. I have shot various Glocks (9mm, 40S&W, .45, etc.) and I like them all. I chose a Glock23 (.40 S&W) for my EDC, but I still like all the other Glocks. If it is a .45 you want, I say find the exact model you want and go for it.

    Price wise (around here at least) you will be looking at about $550sh with standard sights and $600sh with night sights. [for .45 models -- 9mm/.40S&W models, just subtract about $50 from each price]

    I have 2 Glock 36s and a Glock 30. If you like the grip on the 30, then by all means get the 30. It has a prooven track record of being one of the most accurate, reliable and easy shooting firearms out there.

    The 36 is thinner (single stack) and lighter, but also a wonderful shooter. The down side is only 6 + 1 rounds. Some people have reported some problems with the 36 while others like myself have had 100% reliability with both 36s.

    Here's a side/side demonstrating difference in thickness of the two. It actually feels and hides more differently than it looks.

    I'd say get the G30. I have one and love it. It conceals very well. I have a holster from AKJ Concealco AKJ Concealco LLC - Concealment gun holsters, personal defense related equipment, and other gunleather.. It has to be the most comfortable holster I've used. Another plus on the G30 is you can use the G21 13 round mags for reloads.
