Glock Glock 38


The Glock 38 is a semi-automatic medium-frame pistol chambered in .45 GAP. The Glock 38’s cartridge, .45 GAP, was specifically designed for compact pistols. It is a shorter version of .45 ACP and has comparable stopping power.

The G38 has standard Glock features such as a polymer grip that’s lightweight making it two pounds loaded. On the front of the grip are finger grooves and the sides have a rough texture that feel a bit like sandpaper. Its double-action trigger is also “safe-action” meaning the safety is on the trigger rather than the side. The only way a round can fire is if the shooter pulls the trigger because its internal design won’t allow the firing pin to punch forward any other way. This prevents accidental discharges if the pistol is dropped.

Glocks have a simple, dependable and easy-to-use design, which is why they’re the preferred handgun for many law enforcement agencies prefer them. Glock recommends the G38 for open and concealed carry.
