Glock, the most reliable handgun in the world.
Yes, very reliable. Let’s put it down. All right, a lot of Glocks. We’re going to have a Glockfest today. Hickok 45 here. You can see we have a lot of black magazines and a lot of black Glocks on the table, and I’m going to shoot all of these guns. I get a lot of questions about which model is best. I mean, over and over, probably the most common question of all the many, many messages I get on YouTube. That’s probably the number one question, “Which Glock would you recommend?” Often I will get some qualifiers, “Hey, I have a 9, which of the 40s should I buy?” I’ll get something to work with, but then lots of times I’ll get a message, “Which is the best Glock? What’s the best Glock? Which Glock should I buy for my first gun?” Obviously, there are about 14 questions I would like to ask the person before I can make a good recommendation. Sometimes I’ll just recommend a Glock 19, you can’t go wrong with that, but generally I need some more information. You understand that. What I thought I would do today is bring the various models out that I have. I’ve got enough magazines to demonstrate each one. What I want to do is go through pretty much each of the models. I’m going to try to take my time, I’m going to answer a lot of these questions. For those of you who don’t get to gun shows or gun shops very much, it’s very difficult for you to do the comparisons, hopefully this will help. This is kind of for you all, for the people who do not have extensive experience with Glocks. Maybe you’re not even certain of the differences between the thickness of some of the slides, and just how big they are and heavy, long that the particular models might be. One qualifier, too — you know I do like Glocks. I’m not a Glock sales rep, I don’t get anything from Glock. If I had a table full of SIG’s or a table full of XD’s, or M&P’s, H&K’s, I’m sure they would all work just fine, and I’m sure I could shoot them just fine. If they were $50 apiece, I’d probably buy some more of them and just play with them sometimes. I do like Glocks, and so I’ve stuck with them. They work, they’re small, they’re very de-horned, as they say. To me, some of the other guns the competition offers are great guns, but I don’t know. It just seems like the slide is a bigger affair on some of them, and they are a little bit more involved. They’ve got roll pins and things. With a Glock, you can take it completely apart, replace any part with these. Maybe some of the others too, I’m just not aware of it. Anyway, I just wanted to say that. I do like the Glocks, but I know there are a lot of good guns out there and you probably have some of them of. Glock 26, that’s what I was just shooting as we opened. The Glock 26, a very popular little Glock, the 9mm. It is a subcompact, the smallest of the Glock line, and it is a wonderful little gun. A lot of people have this Glock 26. It’s a great gun for concealed carry, or for open carry, or for keeping on top of the refrigerator. Whatever you want to do with it, it’s a wonderful little gun. I have videos on, of course, most of these guns, so I’m not going to go through a big shooting spree on each one of them. We are going to do some shooting, though. The Glock 26 subcompact, closed it up. Glock 19, let’s close it up. Let’s do a little comparison of size. For those of you, again, who don’t get to gun shops and have a hard time comparing some of these guns, let me just lay them on top of one another. You can kind of see the difference, I’ll line them up there. See the length on the 19, it’s a little longer. You have the contour on the front of the slide on the 26. Get my hand out of the way and you can see the length of the grip there, and that’s always a controversial issue, grip length. Forgive me on my grip installation on my Talon grips. I do like the Talon grips. I discovered later I was really cutting the fingers off too short there. They work fine, seems like however you put them on there, but on the future ones I’m not going to cut the fingers. I was trying to match the finger grooves right at the edge, and I realized that’s not really necessary. On my 27 that I shoot the most, I just let them overlap and they stuck fine and all that. Anyway, those feel good. We’ve got the 26, the 19, the smallest 9mm and the midsize 9mm. I do not have a Glock 17. I started out with a 17 in the 80s but, to me, the 19 is plenty big. In fact, it feels really big because I like the subcompacts, but the 19 is a great size. I recommend this quite often to people. If you’re not sure which Glock to get, you don’t have a Glock, you don’t have a handgun, you want a semiautomatic pistol, your first one. You want something in kind of a midsize gun and a 9mm, and you like Glock, this is your gun, Glock 19. That’s your gun. If you pick this one up and you like it, it feels fine to you, the 26, I recommend it. I’m going to refer people to this video when I get these questions quite often. The 26 is small, but it’s big enough. One reason I like these sandpaper-type grips is you can grasp it with either hand and get a good hold on it. As I’ve demonstrated before, it doesn’t matter if your little pinky hangs over. For one thing, for me, even with the 19 my little pinky really doesn’t fit on that grip very well. I have to force it on there. I really don’t use my pinky finger on anything I shoot. I just don’t. It’s basically out of the picture. If I shoot a 19, I may even have it straightened out or it’s just not on the grip. I’m pretty sure, even when I get the big Glocks in my hand, I can get it on the grip but I try not to use it. I’m really using these two fingers here to grip the gun. All that issue about not being able to get your pinky on the grip is totally irrelevant to me. You can put extensions on these so that you can, but it’s unnecessary. If you learn to shoot one of these little ones without the extensions, I think you’ll like it because it really makes it a small package. That is one small package if you have a flush magazine on it, no extensions. I think you’ve seen in my other videos, as well as probably some other people’s videos, that these guns are very shootable. They’re like a combat handgun, pistol. I would not feel that I was less armed if I was going to war and say the carry sidearm was a Glock 17, and I lost mine and I had to carry this, I wouldn’t notice any difference. It’d be fine with me. I wouldn’t mind having some of the Glock 17 magazines maybe, but that would be fine with me. That or the 19. I would really rather have it than the 17. Let’s do a little more comparison while I have these out. Let’s look at the Glock 29 and the Glock 30. If you’re familiar, the Glock 30 and the Glock 29 are kind of bigger, they’re 10mm and .45 ACP. They’re the exact same size. They have the beveling, you’ll notice, on the front of the slide. Those are really closer to the compact size, I think they refer to them as a compact gun. Some people think of them as a subcompact, but they’re kind of in between. That’s the 10mm, that’s the .45. You really literally have to look at the bore or at the model numbers to tell the difference, they’re the exact same gun. Let’s look at that in comparison with the 19 or the 26. One thing I like for people to see is the thickness of the slide. There you can see the thickness and the length, I’ll flush them up at the front there and you can see the difference in the length. Hopefully you can see the difference in the thickness of, let me turn them over. That’s what I talk about when I mention that the .45s and the 10mm are great guns, however they are a little thicker. It doesn’t look like much, but if you have that in an inside-the-waistband holster, it’s quite a difference. You have the same thing of course with the bigger ones, there’s the 10mm, the back of the slide, the same thickness difference. I’ll put that back down. The .45 is the same. As far as I’m concerned, you have two major divisions in the Glock family. There a couple of exceptions but, by and large, with the popular models you have the 9s and the .40s, and then you have the 10s and the .45s, and that’s what we have up here. Now, we’ve got the 30 and we’ve got the 29 and they’re smaller in length, but they’re the same thickness. The big 20 and the 29, same thickness. The same thickness on the slide, same with the 30 and the 21. You’ll see the comparison there. Slides are the same thickness, it’s just that it’s shorter on the 30 versus the 21, that’s .45 ACP. Nice guns, you’ve see me shoot them in other videos. Same with the 10mm, the big ones, they’re great guns. Great range guns, they’re great house guns, they’re even good carry guns. A lot of people do carry them. It’s just that these guns, being thinner and more streamlined, make, I think, much better carry guns and are just all-around lighter. It depends on what you want. If you are determined to carry a 10 or a .45, it’s hard to beat. I like the smaller ones, they shoot great, the 30 and that 29. It just depends on what you want out of it. If I recommend – and I have written this many, many times. My four favorite Glocks probably, although I like them all, and my four that I recommend the most often, are the 26, the 19, the 27 or the 23. They’re the same size, all of these. The only difference is on the 27 and 43 they’re .40 caliber and you have a bigger bore, but they’re the same configuration and size. Any one of those four, great gun. If I had to get rid of all my Glocks, I could carry one Glock, I could shoot one Glock, I would have a hard time deciding between those four. It would be one of these four. That would be it, that would be fine. Any one of them is a great gun, 23 in the .40, 19 in the 9mm, 27 in the .40 or the 26 in the 9mm. They’re all great, you just need to get to a shop or a gun show, get a good feel for them and see what you think about them. Okay? They’re all the same thickness and slide. The only difference is capacity, basically, and caliber. Let’s look at that real quick, here before we do a little shooting. The flush magazine, as you saw, that’s just the standard magazine that comes with the Glock 26. For those of you who are not really that familiar, I think I have a – yeah, here is a Glock 17 magazine, I could actually use that in the gun. It really does protrude, doesn’t it? That holds 17 rounds. You can even get them with extensions and everything else. All of these magazines are interchangeable by caliber. When you do shoot that, I advise you, don’t use that as a grip extension. I try not to do that when I shoot a larger magazine, I just try to grip the gun as I normally do. I don’t want to affect the magazine. I’ve heard that can affect the reliability, I’ve never noticed that. Then, of course, you could even stick the big old 33 rounder in there, it works too. How is that for a rig? [laughs] It looks pretty odd, however it works. I think you’ve probably seen me shoot that outfit. Capacity can be whatever you want, basically. All the magazines interchange. Glock 19, or Glock 26, rather. Let’s take a couple of shots, I know you’re dying to see some bullets fly. I’m going to try to shoot some more with a regular Glock 26 magazine here. Let’s see.
Let’s go out to 80.
There we go. Let’s go one more.
The nice thing about, again, a little gun, you can pop anything at reasonably close ranges, 80 yards. Of course that’s not a small target, but far and near, this gun will do it. It doesn’t matter that it’s small. Let’s move over to the Glock 19, again, possibly the most popular Glock of them all. I have videos on these you’ve probably seen, some of you that are familiar with my channel. In fact, my very first Glock 19 video is way up there when you search for Glock 19. I think it comes up first. It’s been up there a little while now, so that’s kind of nice. It brings a lot of people into my channel, I think. This is the Glock 19, one of the most popular Glocks and, again, hard to beat.
Magazine didn’t stay back, let’s try another one. Interesting.
Really nice shootable gun. A lot of fun, not much recoil, midsize. This and the Glock 23 are the same size gun exactly, it just depends on whether or not you want a .40 or a 9mm. Those are the exact same size, you see. You’ve got a little difference in the bore. You’ve got a .40 caliber versus 9mm, other than that there’s really no difference. Those are two of the most popular and most common Glocks. Again, you don’t see a Glock 22 of out here or a Glock 17. They are the same size, they’re the next step up in size from these two guns. I just don’t have a use for them. I get a lot of requests to do videos with them, I just don’t have one. I really have no desire, again, for a Glock 22. I think I had one of the first ones in Tennessee when they came out, but I’ve since traded. This gun just feels good, it feels great, the perfect size. I just don’t have a lot of use for one. The 9mm, there they are. The .40s, same size. Let’s shoot a couple of those. Let’s go ahead and shoot the 23, since that’s what I was holding up. Same thing, great feel.
A little more punch. One of the things that you can notice, and I guess you can just go back and replay parts of this video if you want to. I’m not really doing this as a recoil demonstration, but maybe if you can go back and look and watch the 9mm being shot versus the .40, maybe you can tell little bit of difference. I can feel a difference because I’ve been shooting both of those 9s, and I can tell the difference. It pops a little harder. I’m going to go out there at 80 again.
Yeah, hits a little bit harder and it kicks a little bit harder, but nothing unmanageable at all. Not at all. I’m bouncing between Glocks here and among a lot of different Glocks, so I have a little bit of an adjustment to make as I do that, don’t I? This is the Glock 27 that I highly tout. You hear me talk about it quite a bit, I guess. Another tip about these guns, one reason that people think this gun is really snappy, as they say, is I guess it kind of is, particularly if you’re shooting a whole lot of 9mm. I can tell the difference. If I just came out to the range today and shot my .40 I would not have noticed that, but I’ve been shooting this 9 that I haven’t shot since last Sunday, I guess, during the ice video. I haven’t fired a shot. This .40 did seem to have a little punch to it, I normally wouldn’t notice that. I’ve been shooting 9 here and, by comparison, it really does. Same way for the grip. If you shoot mostly a regular sized gun and then you pick up one of these little subcompacts, it’s like, “Whoa, where’s the grip?” It’s like your shoestrings, you’re trying to tie your shoes and the shoestrings are too short or something until you get used to it. These are a short grip, you’re right, but if that’s what you shoot and you shoot it a lot it might be exactly what you want. Let’s shoot the little .40 a little bit here now.
Can’t quit on a miss, let’s get another magazine.
Great-feeling little guns. Yeah it’s small and yes it’s a little snappy. My hand’s okay, it’s not broken, it won’t hurt you a bit. If you want a little gun, you want a lot of punch, that’s your baby. You just have to get past the idea that you need something that your whole hand feels comfortable on. All that really matters is, when you grasp this gun, does it feel okay to shoot? Do you feel like you’ve got a good enough hold on it, and then can you shoot it well? Can you put the rounds out there? Let’s see, I don’t want to shoot all my ammo. Let’s shoot a couple more. It’s not going to jump out of your hand. I have very, very large hands. It’s not going to jump out of your hand.
Just not going to do it. It feels fine. Yes it does kick a little bit, but it’s not going to be hurtful to you. As long as he can hang onto the gun, you’re in good shape, .44. So .40 caliber, 9mm, those are the four guns that I’ve been switching between there that I highly recommend, it just depends on which one fits you best. I can’t judge that for you. One factor is how much you shoot. If you shoot a lot…
Good, we’ve got the Homeland Security buzzing by the property. If you shoot a great deal, I think the .40 or a .45 or a 10 or whatever is fine. If you don’t shoot much, you might want to at least start out with a 9 and then see how it goes. As you get into shooting more and more, you might decide you want a different caliber or just a different caliber to play with occasionally, I don’t know. It’s hard to beat a 9, and that’s what I usually recommend somebody to start with. You can’t make a mistake with a 9. If you plan to shoot at all, hopefully you’ll have reached at least enough skill there to handle a 9 without any trouble. It’s a great cartridge, available everywhere. At least under most circumstances, right? Let’s move on up a little bit. This is a 10mm, this is the Glock 29 that I showed you a minute ago. This is one of the thick boys, once you move up to 10 or a .45 you get a thicker slide. Still a pretty compact gun; in fact, this feels really good to me. I’ve always said the Glock 30 or the Glock 29 really feels better in my hand, maybe than any other Glocks. It just fits like a glove. It just really does fit like a glove. That’s the Glock 29. Let’s put a round in that thing, 10mm. See if I can hit anything here, I’ve got to move up the chain.
Nice, it feels good. That kicks harder than the .40, of course, because that’s a 10mm. It’s a pretty stout little cartridge. If you want something with a lot of power and in a fairly small package, not bad. Same old thing, you’re going to have a little pinky hanging over, so you’ve got to decide whether you can handle that or not. If you can’t but you really want this gun, they do make extensions that will give you a place to put your little pinky and you’ll feel better. You know me, I don’t like them. Great little gun, same gun as the Glock 30. Kind of heavy. If you put it in an inside-the-waistband holster like I have here – which, by the way, I have my 27 in there. That’s a Galco Royal Guard is what that is. Kind of a recent discovery, I really like that inside-the-waistband holster, the Galco Royal Guard. The only reason I make a big deal out of that is because I know I’ll get a lot of questions about it, so you know what that is now. If I had one of those for the Glock 30 or the Glock 29, it would be pressing against me a little bit tighter, more tightly, and I would need to maybe loosen my belt a little more. You wouldn’t think it would make that much difference, but the old thick slides on these bigger caliber Glocks do make a difference. They make them much sweeter to shoot, of course, that’s why they shoot so well. It’s personal preference, it’s up to you. The next step up in the 10, of course, is the Glock 20. I’ve done videos with all of these, as you know, and this is the big boy. I believe this is Ted Nugent’s favorite, they tell me. Actually, I read his book, at least it was several years ago. The 10mm in the full-size gun, let’s take a couple shots with it.
Nice gun, big old 10. If you’re going into bear country that might be enough, who knows? Some really hot rounds in it, 10mm Glock. These are great guns, these big Glocks. Again, I prefer them for outside-the-waistband carry, maybe for just trucking around the farm and range duty. If I were going into the mountains into a dangerous area where there were brown bears, or maybe wild hogs, that kind of thing, I might just take. That there just might be the gun I would pack. Either that or the .44 Magnum, that’s always a tough choice. Really hot 10mm rounds, or maybe .44 when you have dangerous game in the area. Depending on how dangerous and how big the dangerous game might be. So 10mm is a nice cartridge. In a way they’re kind of specialized cartridges, but I get a lot of messages, I see a lot of postings around the various forums, Glock Talk, etc., a lot of people actually carry a 10mm and in the 29 configuration. It just depends what your preferences are. Let’s move on up to .45, we’ve got the Glock 30. Again, as I pointed out, same size as the Glock 29. This is a really sweet gun. You’ve probably seen my video, some of you, that I did with that. It shoots very well. On a good day. I think I shoot this Glock as well as about any Glock. I’m not sure what it is, it just has a nice trigger and it’s just a sweet gun to shoot. Let’s put some bullets in it. Now that I’ve said that I’ll miss everything I’m shooting at, so I’ll start up close.
Shot him. Just really nice, this is a very popular Glock too. I can kind of see that in my videos. When I do a Glock 30 video, it seems like it gets a little more activity than some of the other bigger Glocks, almost like the Glock 19. It really has a loyal following, I’ve notice. When it came out I recall it was the cat’s meow. Everybody was just so happy that Glock came out with a nice .45 caliber Glock. I think a lot of people have had the feelings I have about since, after maybe carrying it for a while, deciding maybe it’s a little heavy, a little thick. Unless you just have to have .45 caliber, maybe a Glock 27 or 19 of 23 will serve just as well. Boy, is it nice, it feels good and it’s fun to shoot, the .45. The big boy in the .45 you recognize as the Glock 21. This is my pumpkin carver, right? That’s just like the Glock 20 except in .45. Let’s just take a couple shots with him. Make sure I get the right bullets in the right gun here.
Nice. I get to shooting too fast sometimes, but you know me, I just like to play. I enjoy these guns, I enjoy just playing with them. If I really bear down I could probably do some better shooting at times. I do shoot too fast, but that steel is not shooting back at me so it doesn’t really matter. I just like to play. That old pumpkin carver is awfully sweet as well, shoots really well. I noticed, again, we get back to just trying to get you some useful information here. If I get to shooting and just having fun, I noticed a big difference when I started shooting the 30 and the 21 here as compared with the 10mm. I don’t know if you could see that in the recoil, or maybe in the way my hand and arm are jumping, I don’t know. I tend not to show a lot of recoil, I know. Again, as I said in, I think my gun control video, I just tend not to show a lot of recoil for whatever reason. I could feel a considerable amount, or degree of less recoil, what I’m trying to stay. These don’t kick as much is what I’m trying to say. The 10s hit pretty hard. The 9s are very sweet. I moved up to the 40, I could tell a difference. I hit the 10s, jolt — there’s a jolt there. Again, it doesn’t hurt. No pain, no broken fingers, a big difference when you get to the 10. I notice, as I go to the .45 I sort of drop back down. A lot of people will tell you, and I kind of agree, the .45 is really seems to be softer shooting that the .40, it really does. Partly because of the slide is so much heavier, you’ve got a much bigger slide. I think if it was in the exact same gun it may not be much difference. Really, you shoot this gun, the 27, .40, versus the 30 and you’re going to feel less recoil in the 30. I’ve had people ask me that before, but you really do. There’s less felt recoil, I think, in the .45 than in the .40 caliber Glock, the same configuration, right? That’s one of the things I wanted to do here is give you some insight into how these guns feel, how they shoot. Every single one of them on this table, all eight models shoot just fine. If I took my time, I would not miss anything I was shooting at out there. I’ve had a few misses, but I would have hit everything I was shooting at. I really wasn’t worried about that too much. All the guns shoot great. The 9s, not much recoil, very effective little bullet too. That’s why they get such serious consideration by so many people. The .40, great guns, a little more recoil. It just depends on your sensitivity to recoil. If you’re not bothered by that, you like a little recoil, nothing wrong with a .40. The 10, kind of a specialized cartridge, it’s very powerful, but great gun and a great cartridge. Very accurate, not hard to shoot. You are going to get some serious punch, nothing that hurts. Then .45, the old classic .45 ACP, not a problem. I get a lot of questions about why I don’t have a GAP, the .45 GAP. Well, I’ve been shooting .45 ACP for 30 years or more. I’m just not interested in another cartridge to hand-load or to gear up for. Same with the .357 SIG. I have .357 Magnum pistols – revolvers, rather, I just don’t have a lot of desire to have it in a Glock. I know it’s a good cartridge,8 I just don’t have a desire to have it. It wouldn’t bother me, I could buy a barrel for one of these .40s and actually shoot it, I think that’s all you have to replace is just the barrel, and I may do that sometimes just for kicks, but I don’t really have a strong desire to do that. Subcompacts, great little guns, that’s what I have right here. This is the .40 caliber, not a problem. The fact that they’re so small, when you reach for it it’s right there, it’s not a problem. Some people feel like they have to have a gun the size of the Glock 19 for the grip, and it would work in this holster as well. Yeah, there is little more grip there, but it’s not that necessary to me. Where’s my 27? Here it is. When I reach for it on the range or anything, it’s not a problem. It’s just not a problem. If it is for you, that’s fine if you need to go with a longer grip. Glock 27, that one I did not shoot. I guess I won’t get that one dirty, there’s no need to. Any questions about that so far, about any of the models? No questions? Let me see, did I forget anything? .45s and 10s and .40s, a lot of Glocks. I showed you the big magazines. I didn’t show you some of these, I didn’t show you the 22. You do realize, in whatever caliber, the longest magazines made for that gun will fit in the smaller Glocks. Maybe that’s the easiest way to say that. For example, I have a longer 10mm magazine, it will work in the little Glock 29. Again, it extends, but I can shoot that. That’s another reason why, quite often, when I was helping with the county police department here for 10 years, I carried a .40 caliber, generally the 23. I would keep a Glock 22 magazine as backup, a longer magazine. That’s one of the nice things about the Glocks. Even if you’re carrying a small Glock, subcompact, you can carry a longer Glock 17 magazine or Glock 22 magazine as backup. Pop it in there and you’ve got a lot of capacity if you want to. Hopefully that helps answer a few of your questions, because I’m kind of mentally going through the files of all the questions that I get about these things, and that’s it. I recommend the Glock 26 or the Glock 19, probably my first recommendations when you want to know what Glock to get. As I said, the 27 and 23 will be the next on that list if you can handle recoil, don’t mind recoil. Usually you get out and shoot them. Nice thing about most gun ranges, really nice indoor shooting ranges is they’ll have a bunch of Glocks you can rent, so that helps a lot of people. Wrapping this up, what I thought I’d do is just shoot each one of them again, how about that? What we’re going to do here is we’re going to make them hot. This is something you normally wouldn’t do – I think I’ll point them that way – and that is have even one hot gun lying on the table. We’re going to do this, and these are .40 caliber for the 27 and for the 23, .40 caliber, put it in there. The 10mm is hot. I know I’m reaching here kind of in front of these muzzles. I don’t normally do that. Here we go, Glock 30, .45, we have another magazine of that, and we have a 21 magazine loaded. We have a table full of rattlesnakes there. We have eight hot Glocks. Maybe they won’t bite anybody. I’m going to pick them up and just empty them. Again, this is kind of your last chance. I think the cameraman is going to try to get some footage of showing the gun, as he already has, he’s good at that. Maybe you can tell something about the recoil, maybe you can’t. I’m not going to do a lot of fancy shooting, I’m just going to maybe empty some magazines, just play a little bit. I’ve got to clean all these Glocks, so I deserve to be able to play. Here we go, if my trigger finger is not too tired. Glock 26, 9mm.
Glock 19, 9mm.
Glock 27, .40 caliber.
That’s going to be one dead cowboy, isn’t it? Glock 23, .40 caliber.
Here come the big boys. Glock 29, 10mm. I think I’m going to shoot the tombstone with the 10 since they’re so powerful.
A little bit further away, Glock 20.
Alright, let’s come back to the cowboy. It’s only appropriate with a .45 that you shoot a cowboy, right? A bad guy cowboy.
Last but not least, the Glock 21, .45 ACP.
I hear him ringing. Smells good. I forgot, we do have this baby. What should we shoot him in? Let’s demonstrate that he works in the Glock 26, then we will maybe finish him off in the…

My trigger finger is getting tired, getting stiff. That’s a lot of “Glockamole” there. Eight Glock models, hopefully you saw enough shooting through each one of them that maybe it tells you a little bit, I don’t know. I tried to hold them all, kind of the same degree of firmness. It is kind of weird shooting all these different calibers at once, but maybe that will give you some useful information. At least you got to see a lot of good Glock Tupperware in action. Come back and visit, life is definitely good.
