    Love my G26, but I really would like a G29. It's not a REAL gun unless the first shot breaks your wrist.

    The G29 would be the perfect "going for a hike" gun.

    LOVE the thread title! I don't think there is a bad one in the litter.

    It is always surprising to see so many people here with so many Glocks. Infectious, look out.

    You know it's a matter of which one you're going to choose FIRST. Have you held them yet? As soon as the 27 grip was in my hands I knew it was the perfect fit. And another good thing about the 27 is the ability to swap parts easily so you can plink for cheap(er)

    I hated Glocks and the '36' was my first purchase...then a Glock-26. Now I'm looking at addiding to the litter with at least the Glock-19 and one more '36', then possibly a '30'.
    There are others I would consider, but I see my collection holding the above 4 guns, and at lease a 2nd or 3rd Glock-36 to be able to replace my EDC on a moment's notice.
    Starting over again? I would get the Glock-36.OMO

    ANY of those you mentioned will "fill the bill".....
    IF you're used to a .45, my vote would be the 36,especially if "printing" is an issue.....I carry a 36 as my EDC in a CrossBreed Super Tuck...and it's truly NOT noticeable - by OTHERS or ME!! It's really comfortable!
    If you feel that you may be restricted by the 36's 6+1 capacity, just carry an extra mag or 2 (a good idea, IMO, regardless of how many rounds the gun takes....).
    Good luck.....You WILL be happy with whichever Glock you choose!!

    Just about spewed coffee on the ole computer monitor QKShooter! Hilarious!

    To the OP:

    What das38spl said! The Glock 36 is SO EASY to carry. In a MTAC Minotaur, it truly conceals under a t-shirt. I've got a +0 mag extension on the mag in the gun & carry a spare with a +1 extension. If 14 rounds of 230gr Federal HSTs can't get me out of a tight spot, I screwed up!

    Try the 36, you'll like it I think.

    Been looking for a nice midsized 9mm and have been considering just about everything but Glock. Already have a G36 and G32, and have sold a second G36, G26, G27............... Love Glocks but just wanted to try something else. Already have a S&W3913 and just sold my Kahr MK9 to my bud who bought my second G36. But after looking at every 9mm out there, guess what? Looks like a G19 is going to be the one. I'm so disappointed, and so relieved at the same time. This sucks.

    I CC a G23 every day and love it. Hope to add a G27 soon as well.

    The best choice for your needs is a Glock 27 with a +1 grip. Smallest and lightest of the bunch with plenty of fire power (10+1 of .40). If you are like me and can get hi-cap magazines I would also suggest the 23 (13+1 of .40) due to the fact that the Glock 36 and 30 are practically the same size as the 23.

    I have 3 out of the 4 guns you listed and used to own the 4th (G30) but had to sell it years back when I needed some cash. Of them all, I find myself carrying the G23 the most. 14 rds of .40 with a second mag of 13or 15 rd is very comforting. It is barely bigger than the G36 and not large enough over the G27 to make that much difference. However, I am planning on carrying the G36 with +1 grip ext more this "warm weather season" as it is so much thinner. I just plan to carry two additional +1 mags when I do. Then I will have 22 rounds of .45!
    You can't go wrong with any choice. Which ever you choose, you can bank on it not being lonely for long. Glocks have a habit of multiplying like rabbits!
