    Hmm, seems to me, since Glocks are all pretty similar, that if you wanted one just as a novelty you should get one in a less popular caliber (10mm, 357 sig) or in a different color (OD Green or FDE). But if you want to stick to 9/45, if im not mistaken the 17 was the original Glock... which may add some cool factors to it. Otherwise the new 41 or the existing 34 might be another idea.

    Glock 21sf can fire 10mm and at least 3 other caliber by swapong out the slide/barrel

    But me personal my fav is the 20sf a good load of 10mm will do a lot

    For Cary my fav is the 23

    But me if i was getting a heirloom gun it would not be a glock but a. Old school nickle plated 1911 or old 4inch no lock smith...just saying and I very much like glocks

    GLOCK 19

    It is the most popular model in their line. It is as ubiquitous as sand but it is still very high on the "cool" scale.

    Is it a 100 year design like the 1911?

    Possibly... Only time will tell.

    I have both the 19 and 21 and the 19 can be an EDC any time any place where the 21 is a bit more of a home defense model

    The 17 would be my vote.

    A Glock just to have in your safe and not carry? I'd most likely choose either a 17 or 21.

    The 21SF is my HD handgun. I normally carry a 26, 19, or a 30SF.

    I have to agree with several other members here, everybody should own a Glock 19! If you prefer .45 acp then a Glock 36 or 30 would be another must have IMHO! Good luck!

    IMO the best "glock" out there is actually the Walther PPQ.

    I pesonally own a 19, 21, and a 34.

    The 34 is strictly a competition gun used in IDPA shooting.
    The 21 is both a competition gun and an occasional open carry gun.
    The 19 is my go to open carry piece (prefered over the 21 only because of the weight factor).

    If I had the money spare, I would go buy the new G41 as a competition/open carry piece just for the hell of it, but until a few start showing up on the "cheaper" used market, it's going to be a while.

    I have a 19 and 26 (sold my 23 when I decided to standardize to the 9mm). Wife has a 26. I think the 19 is the "iconic glock" if there is such a thing.

    For the OP's described wants my vote is for the G-17 because it was the first commercial Glock imported into the US.

    Relatively inexpensive to shoot and easy on a novice shooter.

    My carry Glock on duty for the last 5 years on the job was a 21 SF and I loved it. That would be my second choice for the OP.

    My Glocks are all CCW guns now so I do not have my 21 SF any more but carry either a 19, 23 and 42.
