Hey everyone, I need help making a decision, I cant decide between the Glock 21, 22, or 23 and possibly the 30 but that is my last option as of now. If theres any advice or good information anyone can give me, I would appreciate it

ha! whats your budget? one of each! GlockMan626, you seemed to be set on the full size .45, now your digging into the compacts and also unsure of cal. size, you need to narrow your options a little, what are you looking for in the gun, ease of concealment, capacity? The Glock 23 post is a lively bunch, you'll get tons of info from those guys, the 30 is picking up a little, but the 21 & 22 is a bit slow, do to the fact that most people buy full size weapons for range use only.

Hey glocks4life, yeah I was set on the G 21 but now im narrowing it down to that and the G 23. I like the 23 because its a compact and feel like the 21 is a bit too bulky but I really like that gun even though I have not shot it yet. I don't really have a budget, just like to keep it under a grand. Im gonna be testing the two out soon but kind of wanted to make a purchase without testing because they charge a lot to rent, even though its probably worth doin so.I could get the g 21 for $599.00 and the 22 and 23 for $549.00

Do yourself a favor and spend the few extra dollars to rent, shoot, and compare the pistols before you make your decision.

The best analogies for your case and some food for thought: Would you buy a car without test driving it? Or, would you buy a pair of shoes without trying them on? Think about it.

It's great to pick people's brains (and this forum is renowned for that,) but what I've learned in the purchasing process is that the best person to select the "right" handgun is you. Everyone has their opinions, but in the end, you will have to determine what you are most comfortable with and that means actually handling and firing the pistol you are considering.

I purchased my 23 as my first gun without trying it out, I did tons of reading on all the models, read reviews, and came to my decision, luckily it worked out in my favor cause I love the 23. 7000+ rounds flawlessly so far, except I must note my 23 and Gold Dots didn't get along, but that was the ammo not the gun, Corbons are flawless so far as my carry ammo. Mr.K also makes a good point because the Springfield XD was on my list but I'm glad I didn't go that route, I shoot my friends and although I like the guns I wouldn't want to carry one, so trying something first is a great option if you choose.

Oh I forgot to mention Glock is suppose to release, unless its out yet, a Glock 21 single stack to reduce the grip size, check with your gun shop.

glocks4life You are talking about the Model 21 SF ( Short Frame) They lowered the receiver and gave this one an ambidextrous magazine catch. The outside diameter of the receiver was reduced at the backstrap. People with smaller hands can handle the 21 SF much better than the standard 21. They do not have to give up any firepower either. They also use high capacity mags (13+1) Same as the standard 21. (double stack) I think this 21 SF is going to be a big seller
