    Get a 17 (3,4,or 5) and a few hundred rounds of Federal 147 grain HST instead.
    And yes, I own a gen4 21.
    You can thank me later!

    Having run both the 45 and 9mm Glocks on a timer during drills and in competition, there is no comparison as far as shot to shot recovery.
    If I understand the OP's original intention of home defense, it makes even more sense to have more rounds on board an easier to shoot gun.

    A 17 or 19 also carry much easier than the 21, at least that's been my experience with them.

    Hi!

    Thanks for the response.

    Believe me, I have considered the G17 for quite some time. If I will go for a glock, might as well buy the original block, right? It was the first design and it works. No reason to doubt it.

    I know ammos are now designed according to shooter requirements. Velocity, stopping power, metal piercing, etc. We have a vast option nowadays. The thing is, .45 is the widely available cartridge we have here. It is also the preferred caliber of the Filipinos. Of course we can also find 9 mm, .40 and others available here and there but not like the .45. It's just everywhere.

    I guess a .45 rightly placed shot is more effective than the 9 mm double taps. IMO. The shooting skills I can learn on the range but you can't argue the stopping power of the .45. That's just how I see it. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    My first .45 is still my favorite, but it is a Colt.

    Frank is a Gen 2/3 17, and with a full mag it is pretty heavy, but not a pants dragger like a Colt .45 with 7 rounds.

    I have a Glock 21, that is a recent acquisition, but have not carried it yet. (actually have not had time to even go shoot it)

    Any thoughts on this DPM Mechanical Recoil System Captured Version for G20/21/40/41 Gen4?

    Much thanks.
    I have one in my Glock 26 and the gun has been 100% reliable. I got it cuz of bunged up RH thumb and wrist..It DOES make a (small) difference

    If you want a gun for SD, skip all the bells and whistles. If bubba the gunsmith doesn’t mess with it, it will go bang when you need it. Glock makes steel sights, but it’s really only personal preference.

    Remember that the design was for military and police use. Functionality, reliability and an acceptable standard of accuracy is the design criteria.

    The G21 is one of the softest-shooting .45acps you'll ever shoot. I think you're overthinking this. Take Paxil and go shoot that great pistol!
