Reliability and simplicity have made GLOCK® G22 Semi-Auto Pistol one of the most widely used law enforcement firearms worldwide. The G22 is a full-size service pistol, shooting the .40 S&W pistol cartridge, a standard law enforcement round with proven knock down power. The GLOCK 22 is a short-recoil operated, striker-fire semi-automatic pistol. The Safe-Action trigger system makes shooting in stressed situations infallible. The main frame of the GLOCK pistol is constructed of high-strength polymer that is resistant to shock, caustic liquids, and temperature extremes. The milled steel slide and the barrel are treated with matte black Tenifer finish for extreme resistance to wear and corrosion. The Tenifer treated steel and polymer frame make the pistol impervious to corrosion caused by perspiration and humidity when carried close to the body, or kept in a holster for extended periods of time. The slide cycles on 4 hardened steel guide rails within the frame. An integral accessory rail in front of the trigger guard allows for the attachment of aftermarket tactical flashlights or laser sights. The white-dot front sight and the white-bracket rear sight provide rapid acquisition in dim lighting situations. The rear sight is dovetailed into the slide and is drift adjustable. GLOCK pistols fieldstrip easily without the use of tools. The GLOCK G22 Semi-Auto Pistol is an ultra-reliable handgun that is easy to learn how to operate and maintain, making it an ideal choice for self-defense, whether it be in the field, at home, or on duty. The model G22 comes with two standard 15-round magazines, or two 10-round magazines that comply with various city or state restrictions on magazine capacity.

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!

Not sexy...but my go-to gun
I own four handguns including a Colt .22 1911, a Ruger .45 1911 and a Beretta .9mm. All three are by far better looking guns. Which one do I like best? My "ugly" Glock 22! It is by far the best of the four...easiest to shoot, clean and handle. I keep it as my preferred personal defense weapon and my favorite target shooter. If your only going to invest in one gun, make it a Glock.

The one in the picture is a gen 2. a gen 3 has finger grips and an accessory rail for a laser or tactical light. Steer clear of the new gen 4 till they can solve the issue with the recoil spring. Glock just started a voluntary recall on gen 4's due to spring malfunctions.
