    So I quit fretting about it and finally did it. I'm gonna have a glock to shoot. I put on layaway a model 21 in the desert brown color. Its gonna be a wonderful piece to shoot.

    Glocks are great, the G21 is awesome if you got the paws to wrap around it.

    I wont disagree with a glock ad a good pistol , Howeaver i have a rifle close to me , and my handgun is ameans to get there . to tie it in my house gun is an ar if you find me asleep , if you find me awake its a simple 9mm to get me to affore mentioned rifle . no matter if your not le i will shoot you lots and call le myself .

    Artz, you done good man! I like a G21 - I had one for a while and made the mistake of selling it. I took it to Blackwater for a week of training and it did anything and everything I could expect from a handgun. But as SIXTO alluded to, it does have a pretty big grip. I think I have medium size hands and didn't have any problems with it at all.

    You're makin' me wish I still had it!

    P.S.
    I CCW'd my G21 and a buddy will only carry the 10mm version - it's the same gun size but 10mm instead of .45ACP.
    I'm too young to be this old!

    I've handled a few of the Glocks chambered in .45 Auto. I can't get my tiny hands around the grips. I might try the G36, as it has a thinner grip. So far I've seemed to like all the Glocks in 9mm. My Glock 19 is by far the best pistol I had ever shot accurately.

    G-21, I love mine, and it's my EDC. A nice Cochise Defender, and it melts into your waysteline.

    I was thinking about getting another one for a dedicated house gun, adding a mag well, light, and laser. That way it could be kept in a speed safe and be close and accesable. With a youngin in the house, I haven't figured out how to keep a long gun in the bedroom yet.

    You made a great choice!

    Although I have to ask, why the Desert Brown color?
    Because it "looks" cool? Well, if I were living in Georgia (and I have) and was buying a handgun for defense. I wouldn't buy it in a color that's going to stand out the most in the deep green foliage of your state.

    Looking cool and being effective are two different things.

    Not trying to bust your balls, you have a right to buy it in Purple if ya want. I was just wondering....

    Its the only color they had. No black, no green. Color doesn't bother me either, it was just there along with 2 other models and calibers that I didn't want.

    Unless it is by an aftermarket "painter",I don't believe Glock offers anything in "desert brown".

    Do you know Gaston ??
