I was helping a friend figure out what firearms are good to purchase. I told him to start looking at the Glocks. He had to ask a question I had no clue to what the answer was except why I prefer my G22 and G27. So to help him out I thought I would ask on this forum which Glock pistol and caliber is more popular? Thanks
Depends on the group to whom you reference. Law enforcement seem to lean towards the .40, recreational shooters seem to use the 9mm.
Don't retreat! Reload!!!
The compact Glock 19 is reported to be Glock's most popular pistol...

to answer this you would have to talk to glock and see how many of each pistol/caliber they sold between 1986 to now, if I were to guess off the top I would say 9mm Glock 17Which Glock pistol and caliber is more popular?
I believe that is strictly a personal choice, my favorite calibers are 10MM, 357 Auto and 45ACPm for CCW. For inexpensive practice, 9MM. The size of the Glock depends on whether you are buying for CCW or range use. Some can conceal a full size with no problem, others prefer the Sub-compacts.

g19's are the most common glock we see in classes.
And the replies to why you went with 9mm is always, "it cost less to shoot".
That is not a valid point when one reloads !

btw the military do not reload because it is cheaper, they do it so when they aim for your nose at 800yds away they hit your nose.
According to the Glock Annual 2012 the model 22 is the one sold in the most volume overall at the moment.
And like has been said that is because of Govt agencies buying them. But they note that popularity of calibers seem to be regional in some cases....Texas and Virginia is a bastion of popularity for the .357Sig Glock models for example
