Built around the design parameter of GLOCK’s subcompact models the GLOCK 39 melds deep concealment size with the power and accuracy of the .45 G.A.P. cartridge. This pistol can be considered the GLOCK for the master shooter who wants perfection in a small, powerful package.

Looking For A New One

24 05 2008

I’m currently looking to purchase a new pistol. Since I have a “full-size” pistol (a few of them), I’m thinking of going with a sub-compact model. Something I can carry concealed easily.

Right Now; I’m looking at the Glock 36. I’m not sure yet since I haven’t really went to the gun shop and held one. I was just looking at the size of the 36 and it looks like what I’m looking for.

If you have any experience with the Glock 36, I’d be happy to hear about it!
