Glock’s Best Concealed Guns

Glock handguns, a good quality of gun, have been produced by Glock Ges.m.b. H over the years. The manufacturer sometimes called it as “safe action” gun because it is polymer-framed, short recoil operated and locked breech semi-automated. Polymer used is guaranteed stronger than steels. The design of the gun helps is to resist corrosion and fire. Unlike other guns, Glocks does not have external hammers and it does not have external safety decocker. These qualities make the guns safe to use, less heavy and simple operated with low maintenance cost.

Glocks are the guns mostly used in the police departments across US and other parts of the globe. Each gun was carefully designed and built to react accordingly to the user’s need.

Glock 26

The Glock 26, also known as baby glock, is a 9×19 mm semiautomatic subcompact gun. The gun’s total length is 160 mm and weighs 560 g when unloaded. Its size makes it the most sought-after concealed gun since its first release in August 1994, beating the 5-round snubnose revolver which dominated the market for a long time. The standard capacity of the gun’s magazine is 10 rounds. It is well known for its high accuracy firing characteristics. The gun has flat slide release and clip release making it smooth and firmly packed overall. The gun’s grip can only support two fingers. Reliability, accessibility, size and simplicity of use make Glock 26 one of the finest concealed guns in the market.

Glock 27

The Glock 27, a version of Glock 26, is a 40 Smith and Wesson subcompact gun. Its Modular Back Strap design is interchangeable which enables the owner to customize its grip according to the shooter’s hand size. The frame’s surface is scientifically designed and is rough textured. Unlike Glock 26, its magazine’s capacity is 9 rounds. It has larger reversible magazine catch which makes it changeable in splits of second and can also be used by both right and left-handed shooters.

Choosing A Home Defense Weapon

This topic seems to be one of the biggest questions when buying your first gun. We are going to go ahead and break down what gun is going to be the safest choice. We are not going to personally reccomend any of the mentioned guns. It all depends on the situation.


Lets start off with the most common gun used, the revolver. The revolver can be easily slipped into the night stand drawer and can be easily concealed if needed. Many revolvers come in different calibers such as the .38, .357, 32, and 22lr. Each one of these calibers can do great harm to a intruder and can easily eliminate a threat. We do suggest you stay with a larger caliber as many victims of a 22lr, tend to stay mobile (This of course depends on the situation and the accuracy of the shooter).





Jamming is never going to be a problem when using a revolver in a home defense situation. The chances of the gun working is almost 100%. You should have no problem with the overall performance of the weapon. The revolver is also a user friendly weapon. Almost anyone can load the bullets and pull the trigger. Very simple basic design that we have used for many years.

A common revolver these days for home defense usually holds only 5-6 rounds. This could cause you a major problem if you have multiple intruders. Leaving no room for missed shots or misfires. This is a large concern of those who are looking at this option as a self defense weapon.


Common Revolvers:

Taurus Revolvers
S&W Revolvers
Charter Arms Revolvers


The next common defense weapon is the pistol grip shotgun. Many people rely on this as their weapon of choice because of the size of the weapon, the damage it can cause, and the amount of bullets it can hold.


Pistol Grip Shotgun

Pistol Grip Shotgun


The shotgun can hold about eight 12Gauge rounds. This can do a lot of damage and cause serious harm. If you have multiple intruders and have a shotgun, your chances of the scenario ending in your favor is going to be way higher. Another great thing about a shotgun is having a pump action. If you were to hear someone breaking in your house you can easily slam the pump action and load a shell into the chamber. The sound of the shotgun being racked is going to be heard by the intruder. In most cases, this is going to scare off your intruder and might send him running. This is a win win situation. You didn’t have to kill someone and now the police can handle the situation. The shotgun is a very good choice when it comes to home defense.

The large size of the weapon prevents a problem. You are unable to keep this weapon in your room without someone seeing it. Therefore it has to be put into a closet or someone safe (This of course depends on your living arrangement). Jamming is also a concern. You don’t want to rack a shell in the chamber and it get jammed. This will definitely put you into a panic mode and just might cost you.


Common Shotguns:

Mossberg 500
Remington 870
Maverick 88


The last self defense weapon is the semi-auto. These guns are not as common as the other options because of a couple reasons. These are more common for those who prefer to just go to the range or shoot competition. These guns are not even a option to older woman trying to defend themselves. Most older woman cannot rack the slide because it takes a certain amount of strength to do so.





Can hold plenty of rounds to take care of the situation no matter how many intruders are breaking in. Having the ability to rack the slide so the intruder can hear you have a weapon is also a good thing. You want them to know you mean business(This is a debated topic as well. Some prefer not to let the intruder know. Just a personal preference.). Scaring the intruder can play a major role in the outcome of the situation. If you scare them, they are not going to stick around. If they scare you, they have the upper hand and could lead to a very bad situation.

Once again jamming is a major factor here. If you are in a highly tense situation you are going to be shaking. With shaking comes the chance of jamming. You don’t need this if you are already in a high stressed situation. The chances of you unjamming the gun and being back on target are going to be very low.

Common Semi-Autos:

Sig Sauer



I hope this helps you and if you have any suggestions or comments please feel free to leave them. I am not perfect nor am I telling you which one to choose. This is all based on information I have received from selling guns for many years. I would love some input and would be willing to add you comments.

Gun Enthusiast of The Week

We have announced her gun enthusiast of the week because of her true desire to protect herself.



Week 01/27/2012 I made a traffic stop on an elderly lady the other day for speeding on MN State Highway at Mile Marker 197 just East of Mcgregor, MN. I asked for her driver’s license, registration, and proof of insurance. The lady took out the required information and handed it to me. In with the cards I was somewhat suprised (due to her advanced age) to see she had a conceal carry permit. I looked at her and asked if she had a weapon in her possession at this time. She responded that she indeed had a .45 automatic in her glove box. Something….body language, or the way she said it made me want to ask if she gad any other firearms. She did admit to also haviung a 9mm Glock in her center console. Now I had to ask one more time if that was all. She responded once again that she did have just one more, a .38 special in her purse. I then asked her what was she so afraid of.

She looked me right in the eye and said, “Not a f—ing thing!”
