Glock Shocks Industry, Expands Range to .9mm

According to their devoted followers (including TTAG’s jefe) Glock should be armorer to Marry Poppins. Glock’s striker-fired polymer pistols are practically perfect in every way. Cruising Glock’s new gunfinder widget, an eagle-eyed reader discovered that Gaston’s mob’s now putting perfection into a puny package, following CZ’s lead into the miniature gun market. Quite why Glock skipped the much-anticipated – indeed lusted after – single stack 9mm for a .9mm gun we can’t say. But we can say that it’s best carried by armed self-defenders willing to sacrifice stopping power for concealability. As if you didn’t already know.

    “0.9mm”?

  2. avatar MrBadNews says:

    LOL,.. I think they’re just in on the joke… Too, funny.

    The .40 s&w has also been replaced by something new.

      .45 GAP?

  4. avatar Geoff says:

    Only under duty -> Back up tree on the widget, not the issued…. anyone have any .9mm ammo available?

      “…anyone have any .9mm ammo available?”

      I *did*, but I dropped it on the carpet and can’t find it now. Anybody got a metal detector I can borrow?

    Interesting that they think .45 is for men and .40 is for women. Go all the way to the top of the tree, go personal use, defense, home defense. Men = G17, G19, G21. Women = G17, G19, G22.

    1. avatar Nano says:

      Why a G22 for women? The .40 is much snappier than the 45. My wife hates the G22 but really enjoys the G21.

    Would that be considered a mousegun?

    1. avatar Patch says:

      Don’t give the rodent uprising any ideas…

  7. avatar GS650G says:

    can I get 6000 rounds of .9 mm delivered in a shoebox please?

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      You can get 6000 rounds delivered in a matchbox.

      1. avatar Aharon says:

        But will they ship 6000 matchboxes in a shoebox?

  8. avatar Patch says:

    Hey, now: Don’t knock those of use who carry the elusive .0357 cal…

  9. avatar greymas says:

    I’m interested in handloading and was wondering if i can save money making may own .9mm rounds. Are tweezers necessary?

  10. avatar Greg Camp says:

    It could be a new drug-delivery device. Or perhaps Glock is going into the manufacture of concealable sewing machines.

  11. avatar bontai Joe says:

    What I like about reloading the .9mm is that a keg of powder lasts a VERY long time. It’s the most economical cartridge to reload for (LOL)

  12. avatar Gyufygy says:

    It could be a viable round! …If sped up to approximately 1% of the speed of light. But you get lots of shots in one magazine!

    1. avatar Patch says:

      Comment not applicable in certain states, where only 10-round magazines can be used, which, for the .9mm, are approximately ½” tall. Then again, have you ever heard of a .9mm drum mag? Most ridiculous thing in the world, if you ask me.

  13. avatar Loyd says:

    Forget the .9mm. I want one of those 40MM Glocks that hold 16 rounds, like CNN said the Aurora shooter used.

    1. avatar Gyufygy says:

      Talk about hand cannon…ow.

    2. avatar GS650G says:

      The truck mounted version or airplane model?

      1. avatar Loyd says:

        Imagine the holster for it

  14. avatar Charles5 says:

    Not to ruin everyone’s fun, but it look like they have fixed it, as I just ckecked and it say “9mm” now. That being said, this is the sort of things I expect from a poorly researched “news” or “journalism” story, not from the actual manufacturer.

  15. avatar Jason says:

    I’m still waiting to see .9cm — at least it would be accurate.

  16. avatar Geoff says:

    to be fair I did tweet this story and tagged @glockinc in it 😉

  17. avatar Geoff says:

    Still shows .9mm to me.

    also for those looking to reload this might help.

    I wonder if the .9mm will come with the Bullet-To-The-Face feature like many of the Gen 4 Glocks
