Although there are many objective guidelines for the choice of a concealed carry firearm, the ultimate choice is a personal matter for each individual. When it comes to caliber, the .45 ACP has a strong following. Battle-proven in two World Wars and numerous other conflicts around the globe, the round has a well-deserved reputation for stopping power. The .45 launches a big, heavy bullet at reasonable velocity. When the shooter does his or her part, a well-placed hit from a .45 can be counted on to either end the hostilities or seriously discourage further aggression on the part of the attacker. Because the .45 auto is a low-pressure, medium velocity round, it actually delivers less felt recoil than many 9mm +P or .357 Magnums when each is fired from a gun of equal weight.
For the past month and some change, I’ve been afforded the privilege of carrying the Glock 36 as my everyday carry. While the Glock 42 and 43 have earned themselves a great place as single-stack concealed carry options, the Glock 36 has gone practically unnoticed. Ironically, the Glock 36 has been around since 2011. Despite having the same magazine capacity and form factor as its compact single-stack brethren, it’s virtually disappeared from the main stage in light of so many other alternatives.
I'm wanting to get a Glock in .45 acp caliber.
Was looking hard at the G36, but thought I'd get input from members here. So tell me the pro's & con's of the G36 in your opinion........
I already have Glock in 9, 40 & 10.
I'm specifically looking for a Glock in .45ACP.
The G21 is nice but it is SO big and it'd be nice to be able to carry concealed a .45ACP sometimes .
Look forward to your replies!!
