2 Glocks / 4 Guns - New Toys

ZeeZee Senior MemberPosts: 23,588 Senior Member
It’s no secret I like Glocks. I’m not a diehard, as I like other guns as well. But, I like Glocks and I shoot them well. Not real sure how many I have. I’d have to count. 
But, I now have two more. 

Seems my employers down at the shoe factory finally pulled their heads out of their butts and chose a decent sidearm. After decades of piss poor decisions......some good options. 

The chambering.......a logistics waffle. Oh well, I can work with it. 

So what I have are two platforms. 
Full Size


Compact


The trick up their sleeve, besides a few small details, is that their slides are interchangeable!  Something similar models can’t do. 

Full size frame w/ compact slide. 

Compact frame w/ full size slide. 

In either configuration, they shoot like a Glock. Accurately and dependable. 
I took them right out of the box and have put about 500 rounds through each between yesterday and today with ZERO malfunctions. They run like a Swiss Watch. No surprise there. 

So, I guess I’m in the 9mm boat now. Don’t mean I’m giving up my .40s........just gotta make room for a bigger family. 
Why ya think I acquired the two Rugers?  😎

    Sweet!!!  I’m 95% convinced that a 19 is in my future.  I’ve danced all around it for years.  Time to scratch that itch.  Congrats for finally getting the work gun you’ve always wanted.

    I don't own any but I've shot some. I like them too.

    I agree with you 100%, I just wish that I could shoot them straight.  Don't know why but with different Glocks even under instruction I shoot patterns.  Glad you do well with them.

    Nice combo, going to have to try a Glock again one day. Shot a few in the past but never warmed up to them.

    I converted my 40 Glocks to 9s and I shoot them a lot more the 40s weren't comfortable for me to shoot it was the way they hit in my palm I tried different backstraps and it was not fun to shoot after I did the Storm Lake barrels I take them out for a walk a lot more often

    That would certainly be an enjoyable learning experience, cold beers on me when finished. Still drink Shinerbock?

    My early Gen 3 Glock 22 is on it's second frame and, depending on the part, probably about it's fourth set of guts, and as many sets of sights.  I doubt I'll ever shoot it again after the change to 17's happens, but even so, I doubt I'll sell it.  Kind of like an ugly, disfiguring scar from a painful and memorable wound, it's a part of me by now.   :D

    Caliber aside, the Gen 5 upgrades are all good ones.  The old 9mms were pretty much indestructible, and a lot of the internal tweaks to the G5's seem to be inspired by .40-generated wear patterns - these things should be tanks.

    Now if Glock would only dig their collective head out of their collective ass and send the European market 48 (light rail version) to the U.S. I'll be a happy camper.

    The extended mag floorplates look like a nice enhancement. Not sure how often you'd need to use that feature on a Glock though.

    You can think him for your grip.  He was the one who fixed mine.  You will comet out of the range a better shooter.  Hang on his every word, that boy can't help himself and he is generous with his knowledge.

    Well Smack, I have been giving you credit for this ever since
    BUT IT CERTAINLY worked for me instantaneously as you saw at the range
    THANKS @Zee

    One of my buddies thought his sights might be a little off today as at 15/25 yards he said the rounds were going left. He asked if I’d shoot his gun and confirm. So, I took a shot with his G47 (supported) at 25 yards. 

    Mic drop!
    ”Not the gun.”  
    Ha!  I know when to walk away. 😁

    Excellent!!

    The guns I wish Glock had submitted to the MHS program. Look like solid blasters!

    You can probably guess what I'm going to ask... Any talk about putting those MOS cuts to use?

    HIGHLY interested on the results of this when you have some time to wring them out...

    Are you at liberty to discuss which optics are under consideration?

    I only have one, a brand new Glock 43. I got it strictly for carry. I fell in love with it the first time I pulled the trigger. Heck I actually hit what I was shooting at! Damn good feel for such a small gun. And I love the 9mm. That's strictly for carry, but some time in the near future I want a 19. My son in law carries a Glock 30 because being in law enforcement he likes the .45. I'm not in love with the .45 in a smaller gun and prefer my .45s in the 1911 platform. In my opinion a 19 is the perfect size for the 9mm.
    Daddy, what's an enabler?
    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.
