What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

Again, "oh...another Glock praise. That's nice."

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be.  One hundred percent and then some.

Well, I carry a Glock, but not a 19.

Well, just for the record, I plan to get myself a Glock someday soon.  Most likely it will be a 10mm.  Is that the "21"? I know very little about them.  I'll learn, however slowly.

Glock G20, G29, and G40 are your 10mm Glock pistols.

10mm is the G20, I think the G37 in compact form, and G40 in the longer-slide version. You can also get a G21-compatible barrel and magazines and run .45ACP in a G20 or get a G20 barrel and magazines and run 10mm out of a G21.

As to the article, I suppose it's reasonable given the market share and overall popularity of the Glock. I am also fond of the M&P series and wish I could afford more. (Would especially like to try the long-slide 9mm M&P.)

My son in law, over in WA has a G21, I think it is.  It's a .45 with 13 or 14 round magazine.
I've held it and fondled it many times in years gone past.
I used to think it was too bulky and blocky....but I've grown past that early view.
Nowadays the more I hear about the 10mm...the ballistics sound like a hi capacity .357 magnum in auto loader form. Sounds like a kick in the pants to shoot!
