The GLOCK 25 chambered for 9mm short (380 auto). As a consequence it has noticeably reduced recoil compared to the equivalent frame size G19 chambered in 9 x 19mm.
Seems like advocates of 9mm short will argue that the less recoil you are forced to deal with, the faster you’ll be able to shoot to any given level of precision. The result is that translates into being able to deliver more rounds on target in a specific time frame.
Law enforcement agencies only can purchase the Glock 25 in the USA. Finally the G25 is available and in stock in South Africa.
