Voted for the 17.

Though it seems like the 19 is the most popular. Makes me want to get mine back!

to all the 9mm bashers. We are strong!

I couldn't decide between a 9mm or a .45. Then I discovered .40
"Awsome" says I!

Also, for hikers, a 9mm is to small. If you want protection from cougar, etc. Get .40 or larger. 9mm has taken down even bear. But it is not something you would want to try.


Americandude, I read the thread you sent me to. It was in interesting question. I see that what you posted above was a summary of all the replies that you got. You truly are a good student, your other name fit. LOL, j/k. I'm not laughing at you I'm with you cuz that's the way my mind works too. Keep asking, that's the only way you learn. Although this does remind me of that scene from Jackie Brown where Robert DeNiro and Brigette Fonda are talking about how much Samuel L. Jackson's character knows about firearms;

(They're watching a video called "Chicks Who Love Guns" which shows a bunch of babes in bikini shooting full auto AK's, Augs, Tec-9, etc)

Melanie: Boring isn't it?
Louis: Eh, I could sit through it once.
Melanie: He thinks he's "Joe Gun" now.
Louis: Well, he seems to know a lot.
Melanie: He's just repeating ***** he heard. He's no more of a gun expert than I am.

That's what it reminds me of. You're repeating stuff you heard, but you're still a newbie.

You're cool man, love your choice of the G23. It would be good cougar medicine, but it wouldn't be my first choice on bear. The thing is, I like balance. The G23 represents balance to me. Bigger than a 26/27 smaller than the 22 and much smaller than the 20/21, size is just right. Small enough to conceal, but large enough to be controlled and maintain its shootability. Also the .40 has proven to be a good killer (why mince words). A mere 1mm larger in diamenter than its "Nazi" counterpart, the 9mm Luger, it's ability to handle bullets ranging from 135 up to 200 grains, makes this, IMHO, a very effecient cartridge. It has a synergy that's hard to explain. I'd go so far as to say it is like the .30-06 of the pistol world. (BTW, the 06' brought down its fair share of Nazis! See the connection?) <insert America the Beautiful>. Also, is firepower. 14 rounds total, 2 less than the Wehrmacht offering, and 4 more than the all American .45 ACP in the nearest G23 equivalent the G30. There are so many reasons for choosing the G23 over the G19, but I won't go into them all. All I know is I would rather use a cartridge developed by S&W, than one used in a Luger. A Luger, a gun used to shoot at our boys in two world wars. A Luger was something you brought home as a war trophy, not something you stuff in your GLOCK! I don't know about you, but I say "Make Mine An American Caliber" "The G23 is for me!"

Thank you. Not everyone is thinking the same thing about me:

I guess they may be right about the post being stupid. But just the same, I'm learning from it. I have to make mistakes, something for me to learn from.
Nice to have someone stick up for me.


It's a good all-around gun isn't it.
I love the balance you speak of!
And firepower...check this out...he he he:

The G24 because it can launch the bullets with ammo-manufacturer velocity. And I also love longslides.

Favorite Glock? Well, the 27 for carry, the 35 for IPSC Limited, the 17 for GSSF and IPSC Production... Overall favorite has got to be the work-horse Glock 17.

Why don't we go around on GT and brag about our 9mm???? We are confident in our abilities to end hostilities quickly and do not seek validation from others in our choice of caliber. The 9mm will work and work well.

the 9mm is passe'??? ROTFLMAO! You mean the the most popular cartridge in the U.S. and the world? Please refer to Websters dictionary for the meaning of passe'

Also, not trying to flame with you. Glad you like the American made and conceived .40S&W caliber in your Austrian made Glock.

Wow, someone doesn't know the meaning of tongue-in-cheek. Sorry to have offended your tender sensibilities, but it was just in jest. I guess they're as sensitive as your tolerance for recoil, huh? Tell me, do you wear a PAST shooting glove when touching off those 9mm rounds? LOL
To humor you, I did refer to Websters and, what do you know, it means exactly what I KNEW it meant.

Main Entry: pas·sé
Pronunciation: pa-'sA
Function: adjective
Etymology: French, from past participle of passer
1 : past one's prime
2 a : OUTMODED b : behind the times

Please read my signature, it was written for guys like you. Seek validation? What a bunch of psycho-babble!!! LOL.

Look, I signed that it was written tongue in cheek and even admitted to being a sore loser, if you choose to be offended that's your business. I like the 9mm, and I'm sure I would die a quick and urine stained death if I were to ever be shot by one.
-Dre.

PS: You forgot to mention that my Glock was made in the same country that gave us Adolf Hitler. LOL! That's what made it funny or at least abrasive....





OK, you've convinced me, I'm buying a Model 19!!! I want to be confident in my ability to end hostilities quickly. I no longer want to seek validation from others in my choice of calibers. So help me, Mr. 9mm. Let it be written, let it be done.

Yes, I was also disappointed that the ceramic wonder wasn't included in this poll. Don't tell Bruce Willis.

I would have to say the Glock 27. For me it's the perfect combination of concealable, capacity, and effective caliber.
It's what I carry when I need something smaller than my Compact 1911 .45.

23C, 27. But i plan on selling the 27 to get a 19C just cause 9mm is more fun to shoot.

9mm, eh?

You know, I bought a Model 19 a long time ago, but I never shot it. I gave it to my sister, who wound up selling it... The .40 cal recoil doesn't bother me, but it's "there". Now I'm thinking, the 9mm must be a joy to shoot, esp in the original Model 17. Hmm. You guys have convinced me. I'll go buy one. I'll keep you posted. (On my way to the classifieds)

Well, since I only have one, my favorite would be the G30. It's thick, stocky, and when it shoots it's mouth off you better listen. I'm sure the others are all great as well. Someday I'm sure I'll own more of them...which makes me want to win the lotto

NOt sure how long this one was intended to stay up but from what I am seeing at this point things have settled out to be where they are going to be. I'm not surprised and any of the placings of any of the models. I kinda had a feeling that the 19 would win but I had no idea it would win by such a huge margin.

We all choose which models we buy for our own reasons and our own needs. There is no "wrong answer" as the saying goes. I do feel somewhat validated, though, to see that I have 3 of the top 5; the 23 (2nd place), the 17 (a close 3rd place) and the 21 (5th place). The validation is not improtant at all but it does feel good to know that other people have so much confidence in the same Glocks as I do.

I have enjoyed this poll a lot. Thanks a bunch, Eddie!
