Glock = combat tupperware


Have ASP will travel.

Justice is the one thing you should always find, you gotta saddle up your boys you gotta draw a hard line.

When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune and we'll all meet back at the local saloon.

And we'll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing whiskey for my men beer for my horses.

I carried the G26 which is the little brother of the G27. This is your first post as you joined today. You also have a skeleton profile. Cops are a suspicious bunch so tell us a little about yourself. Thanks in advance and looking forward to your response. I have never been a big fan of backup weapons.

I was never a fan of glock.  I'd rather have a sig or S&W.  But thats just me.

So, brand new to law enforcement.  What is your primary weapon and who provides that. . . . . .you or the department?


I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people and I expect the same from them.

dept provided Glock 22 Gen 4 :)



To start, my department issued the Sig Saur P226.  Started with the 9mm and transitioned a few years later to the .40cal..  So, I am a bit limited on my knowledge of Glocks.  However, the question that you asked could be answered this way. . . . . .is the weapon made by a reputable company?  Glock has been around a year or two (sarcasm intended) and has proven itself as a reliable weapon.  Many armorers believe that because of the "plastics" that the gun is made out of, it is nothing more than tactical tupperware. . . . .but again, it has proven itself many times over.


Question 2. . . . does the weapon fit your hand?  If it doesn't fit, or work in your hands, it will not be of much use to you.  If it doesn't fit, are there alterations that can be made so that it will fit?


Question 3. . . . .as a backup weapon, DOES IT USE THE SAME AMMUNITION AS YOUR PRIMARY?  If you rotate through your ammunition on a regular basis and are using quality ammunition. . . . .more times than not, if there ever is a malfunction, it will be because of the mechanics of the weapon and not the ammunition.  Wouldn't it be nice to just take the ammunition from your primary weapon (assuming it broke and isn't lost) and continue the fight with your backup?  OR. . . .do you want to carry two different kinds of ammunition because your two weapons are of two different calibers?  Remember, double the ammunition means double the weight you carry on a normal basis.


Speaking of which, Glock has made it nice that a magazine from one model of their line of weapons will USUALLY fit into another model of their weapons of the same caliber.  Do NOT assume. . . . .make sure BEFORE you buy!  Don't need to find out that your two different models are not interchangeable during a fight for your life.


Wish I could be of more help, but this is the best answer I can offer at this time.


I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people and I expect the same from them.

 The Glock 27 is very different as far as grip, is it not?  I could be wrong.. but I think I remember holding the 27.. very different.  Is that going to be comfortable to you, given that your primary weapon is a full grip?

 I like the Glock they last along time they are more cost effective then let's say a sig with are also great guns, but back to the orgianal question I think they a great but you should try to go shoot one and see how you like it.

"le girl"  - I welcome you to Policelink.  I must tell you I am not so curious about your interest in the attributes or drawbacks of the Glock 27.


Rather, as a civilian,  I have a more pressing interest.  That is in any newcomer who claims to be a sworn officer, but lacks even the barest reference otherwise.  Without intending, a genuine sworn officer can raise a huge red flag.  The impersonator can use time in his or her favor to just string along, make contacts, do damage.


I'm sure you can understand the protectiveness of LEOs here toward the civilian membership here at Policelink.  They understand the particular vulnerablility of civilians who would suffer under the ill-advisements, unsubstantiated claims and/or strange interests of cyber-impersonators pretending police authority.  Hence, the verification process.  And the importance of common sense when reading posts.


Since you have not yet responded publicly to polite query, I hope you will do the courtesy of doing so privately in PM if you have not done so already.  That way, as your verification is processed, at least a few seasoned LEO members won't have to make do with your bare reference to 'hitting the streets.'


Granted, you have just arrived.  All the more important how you come across.  For instance, you  might mention what type of agency or department you work for.


In any case, responding here would relieve the impression you are dismissing the issue altogether.

I concur with Marly. I sent two PM's to the OP without a response. le girl you are family and come across as so evasive. You even blew off the request of a moderator to post an intro. I will admit I am suspicious.

My good friends MarlyB and UDennis make valid points en re your standing in the law enforcement community.You originally inquired about the Glock 27 and its use as a back-up.Both I and NYTRDT1 recommended against it.I will repeat that Glock is a fine weapon,I am fond of the 23.I ,like NYTRDT1 prefer the Smith and Sig.What a person is or should be seeking in a back -up weapon is something easily concealable,the Glock 27 is NOT such a weapon.What do I know,I was a cop for twenty seven years....
