Glock 22

by A-Poc

Another weapon of choice by many law enforcement agencies is the .40 caliber Glock 22.  The good thing about this weapon is that it is a nice compromise between the knockdown power of the .45 caliber and the magazine capacity of the 9mm.  At least that is what I was told when .40 calibers became really popular.  However, the Glock 22 .40 caliber comes with 15 round magazines and the option to upgrade to 17 round magazines.  Now considering that all I have at the moment are 15 round magazines for my 9mm, it almost seems like a no brainer to go with the .40 caliber.

Also, people love the look of a Glock.  I think it is one of those either you love it or hate it things.  I personally don’t like the look of the Glock.  I know, I know, it isn’t a beauty pageant for Pete’s sake!  But like I read on a sign at a recent gun show, “Life is too short to shoot an ugly gun!”

Glocks are well known for their reliability and are in the limelight for a reason.  If you like the Glock, I say go for it!

One of the coolest things about the Glock platform is that it comes in so many practical defensive calibers. From its humble beginnings in the Glock 17, to the Practical-Tactical offerings like the Glock 34 (Both are 9mm offerings and also take the same magazines, btw), Glock has “come a long way, baby.” With three generations to choose from, and the following calibers currently available: 9mm, .40 S&W, .45acp, 10mm Auto, .357 Sig, and .45gap, there’s a flavor of Glock Perfection for pretty much everyone. They come in fullsize, compact, and subcompact as well (For instance, the G17, G19, G26), and the magazines are downward compatible (The G17 mag will fit the 19 and the 26, the 19 mag will fit the 26), so multiple firearms fed from a single magazine supply (as long as they are the full size mags) is logistically possible. It’s also dirt-simple reliable, and maintenance needs are few. Glocks are my “Daily Carry” guns for a reason: They work. And yes, there is also one in my BoB.
