    I know about the G36, but will glock ever make a single stack 9 or 40? I would soo get one of both.

    It is hard to predict someone else's actions, but IMO they would be foolish to ignore the market for small - but not too small - slim pistols. Surely someone over there is looking at the success of, for example, the M&P Shield and thinking, "Hey, we should get into this."

    Will Glock make a slim single stack?

    Only if there is a big LEA or military contract for one.

    So probably - No

    Glock to me has always seemed like they don't really care about individual sales, but more LE dept sales. So unless somebody wants a single stack gun, in large numbers... Probably not.:(

    I'd love to have a 1911 sized .45ACP Glock.

    S&W beat 'em to it. It's called the Shield. Too bad Glock didn't listen to the U.S. market.

    The Wierd thing about the g36 is its jot a "true" single stack magazine... The rounds still stagger slightly. Idk why they did that...

    That's exactly what S&W did with the M&P Shield.

    "Kahrs are kind of like slim Glocks."

    PUt a PM/CM 9 next to a Glock 26 and you will see the resemblance instantly.

    At this point, if they did they might need to worry about infringing on the Walther PPS patents...

    Or the S&W Shield "trade dress." Wouldn't that be sweet payback. :evil:

    When it comes to slim 9mm or 40 cal pistols, it is very hard to beat the Walther PPS.

    Love my Glock 36, I carry it every day. That said a shield in 9mm and 40SW are on my short list, like number 2 and 3 behind one other handgun. They are that good.

    Anyone else just giving up on old Gaston completely, and saving money for the almost certainly-upcoming XDs in 9mm instead?

    Based on the currently ongoing run on the .45 acp version, it might be a while, but I'm willing to wait for it.

    I talked with a Glock rep a few weeks ago. They are so far behind production to expect anything new for awhile.

    This is very true in my experience. Kahr unreliability vs. Glock Reliability =No comparison.

    Again, I have to third the PPS. Why would you need a slim Glock when Walther already built exactly what you're looking for?

    If you can handle a manual safety the Ruger SR9c is pretty much a slim Glock.

    If they came out with a single stack 9mm, I'd jump on that.

    Walther already makes it and calls it the PPS, and it's a better pistol than Glock would build anyway!

    PPS aren't close to being a "slim Glock".....

    IMHO a mag release has no business being a part of the trigger guard.
    Thats just stupid, unsafe and for me unergonomic. YMMV.

    I kind of think the Glock 26 is an outstanding enough small pistol that I really wouldn't want anything smaller. Any smaller and it might not shoot like a regular service pistol anymore.

    And it's only an inch and a fifth wide anyway, if you're carrying in any reasonable IWB holster you shouldn't have any trouble with them at all. If you insist on an MTAC (love them, but they are a little bulky for a gun as small as the 26) or some other thick holster, then yes, the Glock is a little chunky.

    If you get it a decent thin or ultra-thin Kydex holster like it deserves, it's the easiest pistol to carry in the world unless you want a gun so small it's hard to draw.

    The S&W Shield in 9mm or .40 S&W is going to be really hard for Glock to ever outdo!!

    If you can get past not having a hood ornament that says Glock on it?
    The S&W Shield is the better gun all the Glock fanboys are wringing their hands and waiting to happen that won't.

    Over 1500 rds through my PM9 and I have only had 1 FTF using steel cased ammo. Never had a single cycling issue. It seems like some people have bad luck with Kahr but given my experience, for a <1lb, single stack 9mm that is rated for +p, you can't beat it.
