Until recently I would have never considered purchasing a Glock firearm for one reason or another but I fell in love with this model the first time I picked it up. It's the only Glock that has felt good when I held it but it's also the best feeling pistol I have ever picked up. I must have visited two local shops numerous times to make other purchases but I always asked to see it again and again. I didn't want a Glock but I finally gave in. I figured despite my preconceived notions and opinions if it felt that good in my hand I had to buy it. I was actually about to purchase the necessary parts to convert my 1911 to fire .400 Cor-Bon vs purchasing a new gun in favor of having more cash on hand for a future Ruger Blackhawk or Vaquero. That's still in the works, but here's the Glock 40 10mm auto that made me question myself. The first photo doesn't give any frame of reference for size so I included the second in comparison to my own hand. The total length of the pistol is 9.49 inches. It's 1.27 inches longer than the longest .45 ACP they make. I've not fired it yet, but I will remedy that this Saturday.
