I am already thinking about my next Glock and am considering 10mm , 45 ACP or .357 Sig............I would like some feedback and opinions from you guys on which to choose and why

I had the same choice a while back. I chose the G-20 it was a great pistol and I really liked it but it was a mistake due to the cost and availability of ammunition in this area. I ended up with a G-21 the 45 acp is readily available about anywhere and the G-21 will also handle the 45 Super (as I understand with nothing more than changing guide rod assys) which will match or exceed the power level of the 10mm. It sounded like a win/ win situation to me.

.45acp: G21
10mm: G20

depends, if its for people defense or animal control....and how much you want to spend on ammo

I have a G20 and love it. When you fire it everyone knows.

Keep in mind that the full size 10mm & 45 ACP are big, much bigger than the G17/22/31 frame. Make sure you can wrap your paws around one before you buy.

I have owned several GLOCK's since 1986 and just a few years ago I upgraded to a G21.
This pistol is perfect for me. It fits me like a custom gun.
Very accurate - octogonal vs. hexagonal ...

I like the G21 so much I recently purchased a second one

Gotta say my pick would be a G21

Thanks for the replies............I was wavering between the .357 Sig and .45 acp, and the 10mm isnt ruled out, but I dont want to spend a ton of money on ammo. I read some reports somewhere about .357 being better for defense than the .45 ACP, but having never owned either, I dont know.........so keep those posts coming

Get them all.
Start with the g21, I use corbon 165gr +p at 1250fps. for defense. Not too far from 10mm levels

I like the G20 and recommend it. It is a great performer and it is quite satisfying to shoot. Plus Ted Nugent has one.

I got my 21 on friday and ran 300 rounds thru it today and I have to recommend it. The recoil on this thing is amazingly SOFT. Much less than my 22 or 23!!!

Glock 21 .45ACP. Only full size Glock I carry. Then again I might be partial...I only own .45ACP pistols.

I have a G35, 20 and a 21

A G21 was my first 45 ACP handgun. I am shocked at the lack of recoil. I love the thing. It is a police trade in with night sights. $375 It has holster wear............ but......It's a Glock. As far as caliber. My best friend in the 82nd Airborne in Iraq chose the 45 ACP over the 9mm for his handgun. Thats good enough for me.

9mm,is the original and still the best chambering in a Glock!IMHO

G17, alot of firepower, accurate, dependable and sooooo sweet to shoot!

Full sized GLOCK...I'd be reaching for a G17 first, then G20, then the G21.

I would say your choices are the 17 or 21

I would get both models in my hand first, the 17 feels slightly better than the 21, but thats for my size hands. Both calibers have plenty of ammo choices everywhere, the 17 will give you 18 rounds and the 21 gives you 14 rounds of time proven .45acp, keep in mind that the +P is just shy of 10mm ballistics.

You know, I just talked myself into a Glock 21!

I am going to put on my flame proof suit first........

If a G21 is too big for you to grip well, I'd go with a .40cal above the .357 sig...........

Flame proof suit on for the following statement:

I'd even go with a 9mm before the .357 sig.

There is more ammo to select from for both the .40 and the 9mm. The .357sig is a 125gr bullet that shoots a bit harder than the 9mm+p 124 grain bullet, but with less ammo avability.
