    .45 Compact Glock ???

    Do we know if Glock will ever make a "Compact" size .45?

    I feel like the sub-compact (G30) is too small and the (G21) is Monster!

    Other than the mid size .45GAP Glock 38 no, we probably won't see one.
    Well the 37, 38, and 39's are all G.A.P's right??? I've been told to stay away from those because the ammo is going to be hard to find. Is that true? What is the big difference between the .45 and the .45 G.A.P?

    The .45GAP is a couple mm shorter in case cartridge length so that it fits in a G19/23 sized frame, that's about the only difference.

    The ammo can be hard to find (you won't find it at Walmart etc.) and I would wager that the GAP is destined to become extinct. A couple of LE agencies issue it, I think the PA State Police used it for a time, not sure if they still do or not.

    Is the Glock 36 'compact?'

    What do you call the G36? I love mine and it's about the size of a G19.

    I just got the G36 and love it. There are some smaller .45's out there but the 36 is pretty nice. Wish it had an accessory rail.

    I have carried a 21 on duty, and a 30 off duty. Honestly, there isn't a lot of difference if you put them side by side. Not enough for a "middle" offering, anyway. I don't see it coming. The best way to getting close to the middle is a pinky grip extension for the 30 from Pearce or Shearer. It makes a huge difference in the grip.

    I carry my G36. Mine is a great shooter. If you are within 50 feet of my G36, it can poke your eye out. I use stock mags with the Pearce mag extensions installed for a full grip and 7+1 carry. Do not discount this mighty 45

    in my opinion the glock 36 is better than any of the 3" 1911 versions
    a bit smaller and lighter than the 3" 1911's and the barrel is a bit longer than 3"
    and of course much more reliable

    The G36 is thinner, but OAL and height is the same, I believe, as the G30. I really don't see Glock going that route anytime soon. They do pretty good with what they have in the inventory right now.
