Don't know if anyone has seen this or shot it yet, but I think this might be my nest purchase.
The pistol disassembles in just a few seconds into its constituent parts, and the entire metal chassis of the gun — the serialized part that is technically the “firearm” in the eyes of the ATF — slides completely free of the frame. You can have an arsenal of different options from 9mm / .357SIG / .40S&W (.45 Coming Soon), and you can change barrel length and frame size to go from sub-compact, compact and full size. All pretty cool, if you only consider it as one gun that's just adaptable to whatever your current carry needs or ammo availability are; but the thing I like is the money you can save on q-tips trying to clean gun that don's come apart like this.
I own several Glock pistols, Versions 1, 2 and 3. I have found out that Wolf makes after market barrels for the Glock pistols. If you own a version prior to the 4the generation in 40 cal, you can buy barrels for the 357 sig and the 9mm that will fit into your compatct 40 cal glock 23 or your 40 cal glock 27.
I have found this to be enjoyable to fire my 40 cal 23 using my 9mm barrel (of course you have to use a 9mm magazine with the 9mm barrel, and use the 40 cal magazine with your 357 sig barrel)
You can save money by using the 9mm change in your 40 cal Glock.
Just some a simple method to save on range cost.
What you need to think about is that most times, a larger gun of the same caliber will actually have less recoil than a smaller one. A .380 pocket pistol (I carry one as a back-up) is at best "snappy". A 9mm subcompact (my LC9 for example) has more felt recoil than my full size 9mm. It's just physics. Less felt recoil will help a novice shooter in many ways.she loves shooting my .22 but her brother is in the army and has her convinced she needs large caliber rounds. she originally wanted a .40 cal but i talked her into settling for the 9mm. she's stubborn. she wouldn't even let me buy her the s&w m&p shield, she had to have the full size. i was thinking about getting myself s&w bodyguard but after firing it and seeing how shitty the accuracy was even at 7yrds not sure if i want my life depending on it. im not really a fan of the 6+1 either. it just feels so nice to hold and i'm a really big fan of the built in laser.
Im guessing, because you quoted me, you are talking to me.... While I initially thank you for your input. Do you really think you are going to strongly stress, that my choice might be the wrong choice? After 50 years of combined combat action, and continued civilian carry, that after all these years, and the thousands of round that I have fired for both competition and qualification, that at this point in my life, with money not being a concern, that I would choose a bucket list weapon, that was not the absolute best advantage for me..." FOR ME "... my choice, not what some guy on an internet forum, who does not know me, nor my qualifications, or my ability to handle the weapon, , and then be so condescending as to suggest that someone he does not know might be carrying the wrong weapon. You might suggest that to a guy looking for " Help " to choose a weapon. I did not come here looking for help, I came here to share 70 years of my life experiences, which include 52 years of weapons experience, combat actions, and civilian carry.In my 53 years in law enforcement and currently remaining a Ohio State Law Enforcement Firearms Instructor and NRA firearms instructor I stress the point of "if a firearm is too heavy to carry all the time, then you have the wrong firearm."
My every day carry handgun is the smith and wesson model 340PD, If you are not familiar with it, please do a google search for it, if you wonder if my statements come from a person with credentials that are real, please google me.
