Yea, really it comes down to personal choice. I bet if you take a poll, the G19 may be the winner. Me, i would say the G23 followed by the G30.

I chose the XDm route over Glock, but I have to say it's tough to beat the all around versatility of a Glock 19. Perfect for any one thing? Probably not. But the G19 can handle a variety or roles really well. G23 offers similar qualities.

The other Glock that interests me is the 20/29. It's a really good option for a light weight woods gun, and has a two-fisted grip on the entire polymer 10mm market.

Well honestly its hard to beat the original. G17 all the way. Gets my vote hands down.

While I can shoot the G19, the grip on it and most Glocks are a little too big for my hand. The one that works best for me is the G36 single stack 45ACP.

They're all very similar. I like my subcompact Glock for ccw, but I like my fullsize for duty use. Both do there jobs perfectly.
Or is it like asking the mason "which brick" he prefers from his pile of bricks?

I'm pretty partial to my g20, since 10mm is the king of auto handgun calibers.
But I shoot my 34's more often.
I could make a list of a bunch of guns i have, or "have", or wish I had. Why would one feel compelled to provide that infornation freely? Do you feel the need to show off? Is it some immature game of oneupsmanship?

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

There isn't a nickel's worth of difference in quality between any two models. I own a G35 which I bought just for the longer barrel. Buy whatever suits your particular needs.

A Glock is a glock, so they are all equally as great.

My preference is a Glock 23 .40 s&w. This is the middle ground for me. It's a .40 so the stopping power is there, and it's a compact so it's good for EDC and home defense, or really anything. The compacts fit my hand perfectly, opposed to the fullsize or the sub compact.

When choosing a glock, decide what caliber you want, then decide on sub compact, compact or full size. Whichever fits your application the most, and whichever is the most comfortable.

A compact .40 is the best of all worlds, IMO.

Hard to choose but I'll go with the G23 as well.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
