A New Addition To The Family

We’d like to introduce someone who, in her very short time as a member of the family, has endeared herself to anyone and everyone who has come into contact with her*. We’re sure that she will only become even more of a beloved fixture as the years go by. So, without further ado, we’d like everyone to say “Hello!” to Heidi.

    My Glock fits my hand as if it was made for me. But then again, so does the 1911 I just bought.

    Damn, some folks are just built right I guess……seems you’re one of ’em

    I fired a 40 cal Glock. Loved it. Borrowed it from a friend and am now trying to come up with every excuse not to give it back. The son of a bitch does not want to sell it! Some people are just plain old assholes. Either that, or they know good guns.

    The thing with Glocks is you either love them or hate them! I love them. That’s my primary carry weapon. The Boy Toy believes that Glocks have no soul, and that’s a complaint I hear a lot from gun snobs. But fact of the matter is that Glocks are relatively inexpensive, functional, practical, and reliable. I like the boxy look. I LOVE my Glock. This doesn’t prevent me from buying yet another pistol, however. I just bought a 1911 last night. The Boy Toy is fixing the sights on it for me, and he’s ordering me some Hogue grips, but the SA 1911 is SWEET!

    Boy Toy?

    What’s wrong with “Boy Toy?” It’s meant in the most respectful way that still emphasizes that I think my Boy Toy is a hottie!

    Hey, Nat! I own a .40 caliber Glock (G23). It’s FABULOUS! Come over and shoot with me sometime!

    I’m a single stack 1911 man. The new CCF frame from Robar now, I’d set up a Glock with one of those.

    Speaking as a certified Glock armorer I will attest to it’s reliability, functionality, dependability etc. It’s a great handgun, and it is actually one of the most “one size fits all” guns on the market, hence one of the reasons Glock dominates the LE market. Sort of like the AK of pistols, but more refined and technologically advanced. Having said all of that, and despite being a Glock armorer, I personally could care less. It’s a great pistol and will do the job, but I’m one of those who prefer something different. Definitely not knocking the gun, it’s a fantastic piece of hardware. But given my druthers, I’ll take my Beretta or my 1911.

    Piece of trivia for ya, the Model 17 was the very first firearm Glock ever designed. And despite all the hoola over the “plastic” frame and drop action safety, the real technological breakthrough was the cold forged octagonal barrel.

    And once again crunchie hits the nail on the head. The barrel was the key to their success as it was both good and cheaply made. That being said I repeat that I would not own one on a bet but, gave my Daughter the coin to buy her’s!

    I gotta go with Old Dog and Crunchie on this one.

    I’ve fired dozens of Glocks (usually prompted by some rookie’s complaint of some problem at the range) and found them to be accurate, reliable, and probably a pretty good choice for a first time owner / operator. Police Departments buy them because they are reliable and easy to train new shooters with, and the ergonomics are unlikely to drive most people to distraction.

    That said, I’ll never own one if I have any choice at all.

    I learned to shoot handguns with a revolver, as a wee little sprout of eight. My first pistol was a PPK. I carried a 1911 for years in the Army, and later was involved with testing the Beretta.

    The manual of arms for the Glock is enough different from everything else that I have spent literally decades building muscle memory for, that I would probably be more of a danger to myself were I to have one for daily carry.

    But I will not complain if someone else carries one, and they are happy.

    She’s purty, B.C. Take care of her, and I have no doubt she will still be serving one of your Grandkids years from now.

    That is, if Oshitstain doesn’t try to take them all away.

    BC #11:

    21 (.45 ACP w/night sights, 13+1)

    Sweet! This old soldier learned on an M1911A1, so I’ve always had a certain fondness in my heart for the .45 ACP round. The first pistol I fired in the Army was so old and worn out that you probably could have field-stripped it by grabbing the barrel bushing and and giving it a good shake. I also made the mistake (once!) of wrapping the thumb of my supporting hand around the back of the pistol instead of tucking that thumb alongside the other. It took a while for the skin to grow back on the web of my hand. But after those little setbacks, I learned to love the .45. You hit someone with it, he stays hit. Not always true with a 9mm.

    I’m relieved that you picked a manly caliber! I’m a Steyr man, but a 45 in any gun is a good choice!

    Glocks are definitely loved or hated. I always wondered if it’s a quality control issue. If you got a good one you swear by it. If you get a bad one you swear at it. I certainly hope you got a good one. Hate to see anyone spending the rent on something that doesn’t work. Personally, I carry an older Sig P220, decock only, no safety. If that’s not handy I can carry my Baby eagle Jericho in a pinch. Everyone has their preferences, so while Glock certainly isn’t for me, I hope you are quite happy with it. What I think doesn’t matter.

    Would be a blast! Haven’t been shooting in a while. Just paintballs at my buddies during training missions at Engineer school. Need to go waste some ammo soon.

    BC! You are now considered to be fully dressed.
    In plastic. :em99:

    Fill yer hand with latex pardner!
    Sounds like the last words heard at the Buttcrack Corral. :em01:

    But that’s ok. It goes bang rather well from what I hear and that’s what counts.
    I’ll stick with my 1911 Kimber Custom. When I run out of ammo I can still beat someone to a pulp with it.

    :em96: i guess glocks are ok but i like the 1911 i carried one in viet nam and it is a stopper.i also like smith&wesson and colt hand guns.i have a single action army that is a slow loader but a great shooter and it will definitely do the job.

    Woman! I will let you know if I’m anywhere close to where you are and we’ll go put some ammo downrange! Maybe the Boy Toy will take me to the land of the Midwest with him sometime? Hmmmmm? :em03:

    As I said waaaaaaaaaay back up the post, if/when I pull together enough $$$$ to pick up the twin of Misha’s Kimber 1911, it will be outta the gun shop so fast that there will be contrails left in the doorway.

    That’s what I like about my .45. It’s not a Kimber, but it’s built like a tank. Maybe make a good hammer after one depletes their ammunition…..

    Oops, sorry.
    Didn’t see that one prior post BC.
    But now everyone knows you have “Kimber Envy.”
    :em93:

    I put the Kimber Custom stainless next to a Colt 1911 stainless before I bought it and examined the fit and finish of both. The Colt’s action looked like it was machined by over-caffeinated squirrels. Great big yocker on the rim of the extractor port. No comparison.
