Re: Second Firearm Thread...

But Dan, Glock's slogan has been "Perfection" since the Generation 2 guns, and they're up to Gen5 now. I guess they are "even more perfecter" now..:r

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

Anybody see pictures of the new Smith and Wesson M&P 2.0 Compact yet? In 9mm, they lengthened the grip frame and magazines to 15 round capacity, up from 12 in the old 9C.

In other words, S&W's...

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

I need to find a "BANG" flag on a stick, so I can take some humorous photos of the ACME Glock. By the way it hasn't backfired and blown off my face yet; I don't think the ACME company liked Wile E....

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

Glock started out using serial numbers with a two letter prefix, then a three or four digit number. So flash forward from 1984 to 2017, they now are up to four letter prefixes.

So, why did I...

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

Those AmeriGlo sights I mentioned are kind of a poor man's Trijicon HDs, the more I think about it. Imo Trijicon has become way too proud of their tritium.

Lately have "swapped up" in Glocks to the TALO version of models 17 and 19, fourth generation. Those AmeriGlo sights (tritium with red paint encircling the glass tube up front, rear notch is U shaped...

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

And good score on the 5.56 ammo! Bud's Guns in Lexington Ky. had that stuff on an in-store-only special when I was there a couple years ago. It's actually shot very well in my AR's, accurate, clean,...

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

Just keep my advice about a safe in the back of your mind. I have never for a second regretted the money spent on it. One of the only bummers is moving to a new home and realizing that big steel box...

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

If you're going to keep acquiring firearms--or just want to hang on to those you already have--invest in a safe. It's about as fun a way to spend money as buying insurance, because in fact that is...

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

Thanks for explaining. In Ohio, bills from the previous two year session die if not passed, and the process must start all over. Most annoying to lose out that way. To make it worse, the first week...

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

You're in the fire service, right? I'm going on memory so excuse me if that's not the case. Anyhow, Glock has what's called their Blue Label program. Police fire EMS etc. eligible for special pricing.

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

That would be a good "street price" for a Gen4, I think they run about $530 or thereabouts, typically. The Gen3's still in the pipeline, around here at least, go about $490 unless on sale.

A friend in my shooting group has a Shield .45 ordered. Eventually I'll get to try it. Thanks for replying, Remo.

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

Anybody fired a S&W Shield in .45 acp yet? None of the local ranges have one for rent, this gun will be a "try before by" for me.

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

Do you hand load your own ammunition? With 10mm and other niche calibers like .38 super, the choices in factory ammo are relatively limited.

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

Mostly because it was a private sale, no tax, etc. and the price was right, I picked up a Smith and Wesson SD40VE lately. If you're not familiar, think of it as an economy grade M&P. The trigger on...

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

It's no surprise to me that there is such a divergence of opinion when it comes to "pocket carry" sized guns. Wasn't that long ago, the choices were .380/.38 special or smaller, caliber wise.

As...

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

Been building up the gun fund by selling off magazines and other accessories from firearms long gone and not missed. Spent some of it on a S&W Shield 9mm this weekend.

It's as tall and almost as...

Last weekend I picked up an M&P 9mm full size with the VTAC sights. That model also seems to include an upgraded trigger/sear package. Will never warm up to the flat dark earth finish but the sights...

You know that expression about keeping friends close, and enemies closer? Keep that free ammo friend closest of all! ;)

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

Those are nice. Only a little bit bigger than the same gun in 9mm/.40. Can't really say that about the Glocks, frame sizes vary enough between 9mm and the .45 acp to notice at a quick glance.

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

A good safe was likely the best gun-related purchase I ever made. Never had a break in at the house but have had strangers (contractors etc.) in my condo see the safe, perhaps took note it was bolted...

Re: Second Firearm Thread...

Us cigar and gun guys go to much fighting humidity. In our humidors we want a lot of it, but our safes must be desert dry. Guess it's always struck me funny that we spend money on both humidifying...
