Finding a good concealed carry firearm can be very important, but it all comes down to finding the right model. The .45 ACP is a great addition here because not only is it battle proven since it was used in 2 wars, but it also manages to deliver a medium velocity and low pressure round that will help you eliminate any attackers. The recoil on this model is less felt when compared to things like the .357 Magnum for example.

The Glock 36 .45 ACP has magazine capacity of 6 rounds, which is standard. Some of the other specs include:
• Weight (unloaded): 22.42 oz.
• Barrel Length: 3.77 in.
• Length: 6.96 in.
• Height: 4.76 in.
• Thickness: 1.10 in.
• Sight Radius: 5.91 in.
• Trigger Pull: ~5.5 lbs.

Carry, weight and size
I found the Glock 36 .45 ACP to be very easy to carry around. You can wear it in any holster and no one will even notice it. The model was called a Slimline mainly because it has a single stack magazine. This makes it a very thin yet efficient package. Since you don’t have to deal with power sacrificed for concealability, the Glock 36 .45 ACP manages to deliver great results and a good value without having to remove anything and that is surely a massive plus in this regard.


Glock 36 .45 ACP is similar to the other Glocks just because it’s tough and not overly complicated. The gun functions great with the 230 grain FMJ but it also works well with 200, 185 and the 165 grain JHP. The light recoil offers a pleasant experience and you get to recover faster since the recoil is barely felt in this regard. Of course, you do need to use the proper technique when shooting if you want to get the best results. Moreover, you need to have a very good grip if you want to use this model. Still, it’s a very good option to focus on and the results are worth it.
Also, handling is good. The grip might be a little on the short side but the magazine extension does give your little finger some space to rest. You get a magazine loading tool with the gun and since the grip is textured for all surfaces you won’t have a problem holding and using this gun. You will need a little bit of practice to harness the true power of Glock 36 .45 ACP but it’s well worth it for sure.

Final thoughts
Glock 36 .45 ACP is a very good weapon, it’s both accurate and of a very high quality. You can conceal it without a problem, the radius is short so you will have to be very careful when you aim. If you want a good handgun with a decent price and great quality then the Glock 36 .45 ACP is a solid investment, especially since you can use this in very hot weather as well.
