I'm a huge believer in GLOCK. I own six of their pistols, I carry one one duty, and just about every department in the tri-county area issues GLOCK.

I'm a certified GLOCK Armorer, I shoot competitively with a GLOCK, and my main CCW is a GLOCK.

Also, my GLOCK has been to the sandbox and back. I have other firearms in my collection. 1911s, Hi-Powers, Walthers, Berettas, and S&Ws. But GLOCK is still my favorite pistol in the world.

If I could only have one firearm, it would be a GLOCK.

I've got a Glock 26 that I enjoy shooting but don't carry. The rear of the slide is square and snags on my pocket when I draw the gun. Instead of carrying the Glock, I carry the Taurus PT145. I can't hit with it as well as the Glock but it pops out of my pocket holster much easier.

I like the .38 bullets used by the Smith & Wesson!

.38's too weak, man. Back in the 1978 Lufthansa hijacking, Ulrich Wegener of GSG-9 fame emptied a .38 snubnose into a terrorist, and the sucker still managed to cook off two grenades.

No.Wegners shots were all on target he just was unlucky that they didnt kill the terrorist outright.Had he used .45 or if something like Le Mas had been available then there may have been a different result had he been immediately incapacitated.

That's not true, A .45 ACP is not the all powerful cartridge that everyone thinks it is.

Read police reports. People get shot with 9X19mm, .40 S&W, 357 Sig, and .45 ACP and many survive the shootout or outright are still in the fight after being hit. And these are all with Jacket Hallow Point ammunition.

I have since done so and stand corrected.
What caliber do you think would have the greatest stopping power and chance of putting him down immediately?
