    Glocks are a great gun in general, I really like em but the compact models suck if you have an average sized hand. I hate having my fingers dangling. Check out the sig 232 or 230 if you want a full grib in a compact gun. Its only comes in 380 though.

    it's a conceal carry gun not a match gun, the compact glocks shoot just as good as the full sized ones, personally i'd stray away from the G36 due to it's super low mag count (you could carry a smaller lighter 357mag that holds the same amount of ammo), i've heard of reliability problems over on ARFcom but w/e take it for what it's worth, and the fact that the G36 is about the same size as a G19/23.... skip to 5:45 mark, you want a compact glock? get a G26/7

    X2 on the 26/27. Guns & Ammo did a test a while back on the .45 round in a sub compact weapon. Many of the round velocities were so low, they would not reliably expand.

    The 36 would be a fine gun. Personally, it's too much of a compromise though. I can carry a snubnose 38 in my pocket anywhere and everywhere with no need to worry about printing or attire. If I want to bother with an IWB or OWB holster, I'm going to carry my G19 with 16 rounds in it. The size is really not any different functionally.

    Let my clarify myself. I'm not saying the gun itself sucks. Glocks are a great gun and I own one myself. I'm saying that I dislike the fit on the compact models. Just my personal preference. I listed the 230 and 232 sig saur because even though they are compact they fit my handle well. I'm not trying to steer you away, just throwing out another option.

    springfield armory just came out with the XDs (s for slim) in 45acp with a 3in bbl, looks pretty nice and their stab at the G36, single stack 45acp, i think it only holds 5+1 but with rumored single stack 9mm's and .40cal guns in the same configuration coming soon they're probably on to something that glock should have jumped on years ago that Glock owners have been saying all along
