Does anyone carry a 36 that can give it a good review? I've heard a lot of negativity regarding the recoil management, etc. I understand that a 45 is going to put out quite a bit more than a 9mm.
I'm not so concerned with the firepower differences. I'm well aware of the ballistic differences of the two. I know that this can quickly spiral into an argument about ammunition choice rather than the original post.
I'm a 9mm freak!! Just love the round!! Availability and fairly cheap!! Plus they double stack in a mag flawlessly!! Glock built its name on the 9mm!! For me, I carry the26 religiously!! I seldom have to worry about printing!! Shoots well and I feel protected anywhere I go!! I use the 26 as a nightstand gun for home defense, using a Glock 19 mag for more capacity!! Keeps me out of my safe, daily!! Great perk for 9mm Glock owners, the interchangeable mags, big to small of course!! I have nothing against those who swear on the 45 round!! Just a little to pricy to practice regularly for me!!
