    New from Glock..... The Glock 44, i would probably like it better if it held 44 but it only holds 10

    Kind of a disappointment, I think my next handgun will be a 19

    Here is one like my son has. The sights are the same as glock. I snatched this pic from buds though.

    Don't they already have .22 conversion kits for all Glocks?

    This one is or was made in Austria not by Glock. I hope your son’s pistol works better than mine did.

    Let’s see how the real thing pans out. I won’t buy it until the word spreads that the G44 is a better match pistol than the SW Victory or the Ruger Mark X. Which is unlikely.

    Glock will probably tell you that the new 22 is a perfect low cost trainer for a centerfire Glock. I think it is false about any 22 replica. Shooting 9mm , let alone 45/10mm ,feels nothing like a 22. Shooting fast and accurate is all about recoil management. You won’t master it with a 22, in fact the more you shoot it the more you’ll have to adjust to a large caliber. So buy the 44 for fun, just don’t buy the stepping stone theory, it’s salesman’s tale.

    So far his has been good. I agree. I feel rim fires are rim fires. Not center fire trainers. Great for inexpensive plinking.

    All trigger time is good time. An aimed shot is never wasted.

    l would buy a Glock 44 if it held about 50 rounds, size of a G15 or 17.

    Rim fire versions of center fire guns are excellent trainers. They are best used to drill folks into proper grip, stance and draw techniques and reinforce trigger discipline without the nuisance of excessive recoil or the big cost of center fire ammo.

    The lessons learned translate very well to the full centerfire versions of the guns and the rim fire guns stand alone well as plinkers and even as SD guns for folks that for whatever physical reasons can not handle a centerfire gun.

    Good points Wambli. Never thought of it that way. My 1st hand gun was a 44 mag. So i started at the top back then. Mid 80's.

    For me, the Ruger Mark IV and S&W Victory 22 are more of a “precision” handgun.... this Glock 44 joins the Ruger SR22 and S&W M&P22 crowd, which I guess you could call them “trainers”

    Yeah the old days were rough on all of us... :D

    The problem is that approach has ruined a lot of young shooters. I started my daughter and son with good .22 handguns and today my 5’3” daughter (who until recently wore a MultiCam BDUs) can shoot full house Magnums easily and accurately. My son is equally adept at shooting hand cannons. Both of them had the fundamentals drilled into them with rimfires and gradually graduated to the big boomers that dad is so fond of.

    And I’ll add that I do a lot of personal training with a full sized .22 1911. Whenever I feel like I’m “off” I put down the .45s and pick up a .22 to get my foundation in order again. When I go back to my .45s I smoke my targets.

    So this new Glock has my attention. I saw a price of $365 recently so it’s just a few more dollars than a quality .22 conversion.
