I only have one Glock, so for me the answer is easy. But the reason I chose the G23 goes beyond it being the only one I own. There was a method to my madness back when I decided I should own at least one Glock, if for no other reason, than to be able to say, "I have a Glock".

I asked around on my favorite/home gun forum as to which Glock experienced Glock owners would choose if they were only going to buy one. The answers started pouring in, and it was during that time that I learned that some Glocks are capable of being multi-caliber with a simple barrel and mag change as the post above states. That decided it for me. At that time I still thought that the G23 was the only one that could convert in this manner. So that's the one I chose, and promptly began acquiring the two extra bbls and a slew of mags for all 3 calibers. I also intended to pick up a .22 lr conversion for it at some time in the future, but have yet to do so at this time.

I now have a G23 SF with 9mm & .357 Storm Lake conversion bbls and dozens of mags. I have a medium size Midway USA Range bag full of the 3-in-1 Glock kit. With all mags loaded and ready to rock and roll. A heavy bag, but a lot of pistol firepower in a convenient, "to-go" kit.

I purchased the pistol and kit in early 2009, and have yet to change from the stock .40 S&W bbl. According to the log, I have fired 568 rounds with a single FTE during the first 150 range trip. I am very satisfied with the pistol and really like it, even though I am admittedly an "XD" man. I really should try out the 9mm and .357 Sig bbls just to make sure they function as reliably as the .40 bbl.

BTW, does anyone know exactly how many Glocks have the capability to switch to other calibers? Link to such a list perhaps?

The first gun I ever purchased.

G17, something tried and true. Something that is known for durability.

If could keep only one of my 3 Glocks, I would choose my Gen 4 22. I love the size, the feel and the accuracy. My second choice my 26 and my third my 36. They're all great but the 22 is in my nightstand next to the bed!

I can only keep one? :"-( It would have to be my Gen 4 G26 with the CT LG-436 Laserguard. It took me a while to jump onto the Gen 4 bandwagon but once I started with a Gen 4 G34 for IDPA and then I actually compared my older G26 against the Gen 4 G26 side-by-side it was no contest for me. The ergonomics of the Gen 4 just fit my hand so much better. If I could only keep one it would be the one that keeps me company every day in an IWB holster (but I would never really keep just one would I?)

Glock Pick

My go to pistol is my Gen 3 Glock 19 with night sights.

Plenty of good ammo available, easy to shoot and enough magazine capacity to handle most situations.

Is anyone doing a running count of the models chosen?

26

I only have a 26 and 27. If I could only keep one, it would be the 26 because it is a touch more controllable, but the main reason would be because it is pretty darn accurate. Actually it's one of my more accurate handguns.

That would be my all-arround Glock 20 with aftermarket IGB barrel, no doubt So...what's wrong with stock barrel? Nothing. But IGB is just better.

Ok, lets analyze this.
You got rid of your Glocks but yet you are still on the forum?
Glocks have design faults, low reliability and low accuracy and cause "slide bite" (anyone else old enough to own a Glock ever get slide bite?) BUT.. despite all this you still managed to make Glock Master in just 5 entries with borrowed guns? BTW your first words were that you got rid of all your Glocks. Was this before or after your great success in the GSSF?

I have owned or been issued nineteen Glocks. Currently I have none. I miss my G23 Gen 2s and G27 Gen 2 the most. I hated the finger groves on the Gen 3 and Gen 4 and the texture on the Gen 4 with a passion. I have a Springfield Armory XD45 that will do just fine as a solo.

I'll own more Glocks, but it probably won't be newer ones. The G23 pr G19 Gen 2 would be my choice.

Glock 19 😄

I choose the GLOCK 19 3rd generation .
It is my current duty gun and off duty gun.
Like Dave Spalding said in a recent article.
Bring Enough Gun !!!
You have to be able to hold onto it, hit with it and be able to reload quickly.
If anyone has ever been in a shooting, they will learn that only hits count and the more bullets the better.
It is unreal how quick you can go through a magazine and how hard it is to hit a moving target. 😁😁😳
Especially when being shot at 😳😁.
With that said , Departmental issue may soon be a Glock 23 4th Generation 😎👮.

You're welcome. This is internet forum and I defend your right to express your opinion even if I don't agree with you at all (and I really don't). I hope you're not just trollin' around on gun forums to kill time and tease anybody anytime

I would probably choose my G27. Never leave home without it. But the 23C is mighty tempting. Then there is the old friend G19. Decisions, decisions. Let's hope we never have to make that choice.
