Everyone called the Glock 36 the red-headed step child of The Glock family but I have one and I like it a lot. As a matter of fact, I haven't heard too many complaints from those who own them. The grip is a little wider than most single stack .45s but not uncomfortable. If you have remarkably small hands you might not like it. If I didn't just pick up a Springfield XDs single stack 45, I may have considered another Glock 36 or Glock 30sf.

I've put thousands of rounds through my 36 and it has yet to fail. You can hide it anywhere which makes it a perfect CCW. If you like Glocks, you’ll love the 36 and if you don’t like Glocks, well maybe you should buy a nice 1911!

I have a Glock 36; it's my first Glock and first .45 ACP. After spending about 6 months of research looking for a high quality .45 suitable for carry, everything pointed to the Glock 36, so I bought a new one about 2 years ago and never regretted it. It's a pleasure to shoot, extremely accurate, easy to maintain and has been fail-proof. I got some extra mags and added the Pearce extenders-eliminates pinky pinch and adds some extra rounds without losing concealability. Overall, a great CC gun.

How's the pierce +1 working for you? I use the +0 because the last round with the +1 fails to feed with the stock spring.

I had one for years. Shot it a bit, not too much. Sold it. After about a year of not having one I had to get another.

I'm very happy I did. It's a wonderful little gun. Sure it's snappy, but less than a G27. It's very accurate, and in ccw friendly states it serves a practical purpose.

I'll never be without one again.

What TSS said. if you are able to carry. GO GET ONE!!!
Otherwise, you'll want to shoot your full sized .45

I find my Glock 36 a bit too large for summertime pocket carry but as soon as the weather gets cooler it is good to go:
