All I can say about a Glock is shoot several Glocks before you buy one. You will either love a Glock or hate it, there is no middle ground.

I have shot a 36 and the 21. It seems like my pinky finger does not fit on the hand grip but that's alright. I don't think it matters to much. They are smooth and a nice feeling gun. Some people I have talked with can't stand them but I really like them. The 21 is what I'm gonna go with

My first experiance with a Glock was a Glock 21SF, my last duty weapon before retirement. I LOVED IT!!! I loved it so much that after I retired I bought one of my own. It truely feels like an extension of my arm and it almost seems that I can't miss with it.

If the hands match the size of the dude in the avatar, a G21 will fit in said hands.

I have a police trade in G21, it shoots where I point it, every time I pull the trigger on a loaded chamber.

I seriously doubt you will regret acquiring Glocks, and more than one will likely show up in your safe in the future.

Even though the grip on mine is fat, it hits where I point it, and hasn't choked on any ammo I've fed it. If you are military you should look for one of the Glock Law Enforcement dealers. They may have specific Glocks for sale to Military, LE, first responders, that are sold at a discount price and come with three mags, instead of the standard packages and prices. The box will have a blue label. If a dealer says they have the LE Glocks and hours doesn't come at a discount, and all three mags, you can report them to Glock. They may lose their dealer status.
This is how I bought mine after I retired from law enforcement. Got a great discount and, as you said, three mags.
