    The G21 is hands down my favorite Glock, because it fits my big hands better than the others. I used one for most of my time of SWAT. Many of the guys bitched about the size, but I thought it was just fine. I'm not a fan of the G27 I have to carry now.
    Bring me my broadsword and clear understanding.

    Back in the mid nineties when I was flush with GI bill money I bought a west German P220, HK USP 45, S&W 4566 and a Glock 21. I had already had a Springfield 1911 for a few years. I had a nice little collection. I wanted to be a police officer and I figured no Dept would ever let me carry a 1911 on duty. Then I got hired and was issued a Colt 1911 Government model and Gordon Davis leather. Life was good. I quickly decided I needed skill with my duty gun more than the collection so I sold off the non 1911 pistols. Next I bought a Colt Stainless Gov and had John Yanek work it over. That became my training gun. A lightweight commander was for off duty combined with a rather large order from Milt Sparks and I was set. Next was a bunch of training classes. I miss most every gun I traded off but Iím glad I did it.

    This thread is appropriate for today's date, March 29th, because on this day in 1911 the 1911 service pistol was officially adopted by the US Mil. Be properly respectful of the old war horse, that Jeff Cooper dubbed "The Yankee Fist".

    The one he shoots has a Grip Force Adapter no less because he likes his guns to be, and I quote, "Dummy Thicc"

    Does he have Andre the Giant mitts? I have to compromise my strong hand grip to get more than the very tip of my finger on the trigger on a G21.4 without any backstraps.

    1: Buy a 1911
    2: Break every bone in your hand
    3: tape hand to 1911 and leave in place until healed.






    That's how bones work, right? I'm sure that's how it works.

    He's got fairly big hands, but even I didn't mind the GFA on that old non SF frame, solely on the fact that it was the softest shooting .45 I've ever shot.

    I did most of my best shooting with the pad of the finger on the trigger. But gun fit is so subjective. I've met dudes with bigger hands than mine who have said that it's just too much to grip or manipulate a G21 as effectively as a 17 or 19 frame, and for me personally the Glock 17, while easy to manipulate, was just a task to shoot accurately.

    It's either that or clone JMB, kill him, and take his hands.
