    Gen 3 or Gen 4 for shtf?

    I am working on accumulating Glocks a little bit at a time to be a part of a plan for shtf. I am trying decide whether to go gen 3 or gen 4. Feel free to weigh in with your experiences, observations, etc. Thank you.

    Ya, I say get one of each. I've got a 3rd and 4th gen as of now. Next I'd like to have a 2nd gen G22 or G17.

    As long as it proves reliable, I don't think you can go wrong.

    I love my Gen3 Just keep going for them. Love working on em, love shooting em. Dont know about the Gen4 yet. I heard of some ejection issues with the Gen4 9/40 cals. I think they have it worked out now, but you know. Dont like the guide rod either. but dont take my word I havent given them a chance.

    2 month old thread... but whatever, I like the Gen 3s better than the 4s. Someone else up there said it too that there have been some recoil spring problems with the Gen 4s in the past... I just subscribe to the whole "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mantra...

    Shane's Glocks from the Walking Dead are here: Firearms and Explosive Weapons - Walking Dead Wiki

    If you can figure out what Gen they are, you have your answer.
