Default Glock unveils their latest new model

G44 and it's a .22 !! Supposedly same size as the G19. Not a big fan of Glock so I'm gonna hold out and wait till CZ markets a .22

A lot of money for a plinker, and I'm a fanboy.

No manual safety- no good. I'm old school and would never own a firearm without one. I know, I know cops carry them Like 1911 style better 9mm or 45. To each their own, just no interest in plastic fantastics!

I guess I can see the utility of training with .22 on a G19 platform but I'll spend the $400 on 2500 rounds of 9mm...

I'll stick with my Ruger SR22. Smaller, lighter, more fun, and still a blowback design.
New g44 is the same size as the G19? Seems too big for a plinker.
I guess it would be good for training? But I would rather train with the caliber I intend to use.

Will be very popular as a trainer for kids, wives, and beginners not familiar with striker fired combat handguns

Glock also offering a threaded barrel, so it will make a host for a .22 suppressor

10 round capacity.... Why???

Doesn’t the G19 hold 13 of 9mm???

Im not a glock guy at all but this just doesn’t make sense.

Revolvers have worked for a century with no safety's that I'm aware of.

Revolvers are inherently safe, striker fired semi auto S/A, not so much.

Inherently safe, like a revolver. As long as it's un-cocked. Good choice.

The last striker fired semi auto sa/da I had, once loaded you couldn't de-cock it.

Can you back that up? Glocks are 100% safe when used properly.

Not everyone that buys a handgun is properly trained.

Inherently safe is good for those people.
