GLOCK® G22 Full Size High Capacity Pistol
My duty weapon
"My duty weapon"
Through 3 different agency's, my duty weapon has been the Glock 22. I am not a fan of the 40 S&W round, but Department's require it. It has plenty of stopping power and magazine capacity for duty use.
The 40 S&W is too snappy for my tastes. Ammo is way over priced due to its popularity. With that said, more officers carry it over anything else. Small framed people can easily handle the weapon and the recoil. I just prefer a 10mm or 45.
As for the gun its self, not a bad thing can be said. 15 plus 1 capacity, small frame, very ergonomic and reliable as all get out. If you carry a Glock 23 or a Glock 27, the full size Glock 22 mags will interchange for use. My back up is a Glock 27. The ability to use my duty mags in case of a weapon failure is very comforting. They will stick out and look different, but its 100% functional.
Law Enforcement agency's around the country carry the Glock 22 for a reason. Reliability, stopping power and comfort are just a few of the reasons. Cops carry what works. This gun is a tank!

best gun I ever owned!
Simply the best handgun I have ever owned or fired. I also purchased the flashlight/laser combo and it mounted with ease and did not effect the ability to place rounds in the target with great accuracy.

Reliable as expected
Picked up this and the FNS-9 before the dreaded 1 Oct 2013 deadline. Love firing this handgun, accurate and reliable. Nice feel!

This is a very accurate pistol. It is easy to maintain and very reliable. Great performance even when exposed to harsh elements.
