Default Hello

What's up guys I'm new here. Let's talk comfort. I have a medium sized hand I guess and I want to know if the baby glock or another gun would fit me better.

Welcome GlockUSA. I am suggesting you visit a gunstore and a shooting range to try the various pistols of interest to you. It is only then that you will know which one fits your hand best as well as which one has the qualities you are looking for.

Hello to you as well...when you get a chance, stop by the intro thread and tell us a little about yourself...

If I were you, I'd get my paws on as many as possible, your LGS, pawn shop are good places to start. Lots of ranges rent guns so you can get further acquainted as well. The only person that knows what best fits you IS you...

I agree completely with what these people are saying. You won't know till you try one I personally have the 26 and have bigger hands but love the feel and the way I am able to shoot it accurately.

I almost feel weird asking because I'm a Glock only shooter but have never even held the slim line. I must admit most walthers for like a glove and a 1911 feels nice in the hand. I would prefer not to change manufactures

Even with smaller hands your pinky will rest past the grip.you will need to add grip extension base plates to your mags.

Do you plan to CCW, then a baby Glock like the G26 or G27 would be a great choice. If not, then maybe go for the compact sizes like the G19 or G23.

Be sure to handle both the Gen 3 and Gen 4, a lot of people like the feel of the smaller Gen 4 (and it does come with extra backstraps to enlarge the grip to Gen 3 size and even larger). I love my 23Gen4. And not unhappy with the older ones either.

Gen 4 is gonna be my next move. I carry a gen 3 19 and its just to big in the handle by a little bit so the slime line would probably be better in gen 4
