Glocks are manufactured in Austria, and Imported through Smyrna GA.

If itz de Austrian you prefer check out the Steyr M-a1 pistols. The 40 was my first carry gun. Carried it for 2 years.

I think thats the cal. i am going to get in a Glock! But its still a toss up between 40 or 45. I think 40 would be a little cheaper and be able to get ahold of it easier!

I have fairly big hands and I like a GOOD grip on ANY gun I shoot, but I know it will still have to be small enough to be concealed! So, ANY input ya'll have would be very much helpful!!! I am hopefully getting my CCW on Friday

Thanks

AND I want to stick with mainline guns, not some joe smoe gun and be made right here the the good ole' USA
My only suggestion is that the gun is small enough that you actually carry it as much as possible. I have a Glock 23 and it is often at home in the safe just because it is too big and heavy for a pocket. I'm going to look into that new Ruger .380.

The Steyr is a great gun, I still have mine, it aims so naturally for me at the range, almost don't need the sights!

Here is the deal eveyone is going just list there favorite gun. Basically. I love glocks to death, but I carry a Kel-tec pf9. I am 6'4'' and the hands to match. I will tell you that the bigger the gun the harder it is to hide. ( duh ) But if you get a tiny gun shooting a .45 its going to kick like a horse. Just look everything and see what you can easily hide. If its to hard to hide/carry you wont do it.

From Wiki

Springfield:

All assembly, custom work and repairs are done in Geneseo, Illinois, USA.

Parts are made in various places across the world including, but not limited to, Brazil (most notably for some 1911-style firearms), Hungary and at various locations in the U.S.
Actually the Springfield XD is made in Croatia, so no not all of them are made in the United States, Brazil, or Hungary


Everything I could find on S&W they are made and assembled in the US.
Good eye!

Steyroids are rare, I've found.



Don't carry mine as much anymore, since they don't make a 10mm, they're underpowered for Alaska..

It looks like a twisted version of a Glock. Interesting...
