    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)

    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
