Glock 22, 23 and 27. Glocks are known for their extreme reliability as well as durability. So performance wise yes. The simple design of a Glock as well as their unique safeties make them one of the most reliable semi-auto out in the market. The Glock grip angle isn't for everyone as you will hear others complain about it, but it suits me quite nicely and fits comfortably in my hands and I'm very accurate with one. Are you sold on a .40? Why not 9mm or. 45? Just curious. .40 is the usual standard for LEO's. Which model are you more leaning towards?

The reason for a 40 is that a guy I know carries a glock 40 for personal defence and home and to go shot out at the range and he loves it. Just nothing but good things and I was curious as to how they worked and how well they perform.

I have both a .40 and a 9 mm. I prefer .40 cal overall, but I never feel out-gunned when I have my 9 mm with me. Its often said on this site that shot placement is more important than caliber; they're right. If you shoot the .40 well, stick with it. If recoil is an issue, check out 9 mm. Whatever you do, before you invest on a weapon, be sure to try a few and get one you really like.

I have both 45 and 40. Prefer the 40 for fun shooting and SD. Never had an issue with any of my Glocks!

Glocks are known for their durability, reliability, and functionality, so, yes they are indeed a good firearm. With the .40 that depends on your personal preference, like most calibers. I prefer either the 9mm or .45ACP, because the .40 is just not that attractive to me that much. The 9mm I like, because there's little recoil, can allow for a very small firearm like the Kahr CM9, and allows for a high capacity depending on the firearm. I like the .45ACP, because it provides very good stopping power, it feels good to me, and it is a very classic round especially when chambered in a 1911 or 1911A1.

I carry a Glock 27 every day. It conceals easily and has plenty of firepower. I highly recommend a Glock for reliability, accuracy, and affordability. Choose the caliber you are most comfortable with.

40S&W is a great compromise caliber (between 9mm and 45ACP power- and capacity-wise). I'm very satisfied with my Glock 22, 23 and 27.

Definitely try out various pistols and calibers before choosing, each one excels for specific tasks.

Isn't your topic about the 40S&W?
