What Is the Best Glock for You in 2021?

When buyers are in the market for semi-automatic pistols, one of the first names that always comes to mind is Glock. For decades now, the Austrian-based handgun maker has been turning out some of the most reliable and popular firearms in the world. Why? Their quality and reliability are second to none.

With abnormally high demand for most ammunition calibers, we recommend Glock handguns chambered in 9mm. Put simply, it is the most used pistol caliber, and finding less popular calibers at an affordable is tricky due to the demand.

If you’re in the market for a new pistol in 2021, which one of Glock’s extensive lineup is right for you? Well, that depends. Are you looking for a concealed carry gun? A home defense pistol? A competition gun?

Glock has top contenders in all of these categories, so it’s better to focus one at a time.

Choosing the Right Glock for Concealed Carry

For many, Glock is their brand of choice when they conceal carry. The 9mm Glock 43X features a staggered-stack Slimline frame and compact size grip. For medium to large hands, you can fit all five fingers on the grip. With a 10+1 capacity, this gives carriers the perfect blend of comfort and concealment.

Also, the 9mm Glock 43 features a smaller compact frame and grip with a 6+1 capacity. For those with smaller hands, or who just want something a bit smaller to conceal, this is a classic Glock to carry.

Choosing the Best Glock for Home Defense

While the full-size G17 has more rounds on board, the Glock G19 is the one of the most popular handguns in the world. Its more compact size is a better fit for most shooters, and the G19 will still accommodate larger Glock 9mm magazines all the way up to the large capacity 33-rounders. The Glock 19 is the ideal choice in a home defense gun that can also be comfortably carried should the need arise.

Choosing the Right Glock for Competition

If you’re choosing the best Glock for competition shooting, look no further than the Glock G34 long slide MOS pistol. With its long 5.3-inch barrel length and a slide cut for a pistol red dot optic, the G34 MOS is the first choice for scores of 3-gun and bowling pin shooters. And, there’s a universe of aftermarket accessories – everything from flared magwells to replacement competition triggers – that will give you the ability to make the G34 the ultimate competition machine.
