Nice stuff, LFK, though I still don't understand why some people prefer carbine style AR's.

A bit, but I rather expect some sort of regulatory action if things go that direction. Sort of like the OSHA attempt to destroy the civilian ammunition market that was just put off by the public uproar during the comment period. If Congress does it, they know many people will hold them accountable.

Thanks. I prefer the A2 furniture, but went with the adjustable for my kids. :wink:

I meant the shortened barrel.

My stomach actually flipped a little on first seeing that picture. Then again, once you get used to it, and since it's not all that expensive... if your girl wanted it, hey, why not? As long as you keep the orgiinal stuff. :wink:

I hear ya. I went back and forth between a 20" HBAR and the 16" CAR. In the end, I went with the better package deal.

Not if they know what's good for 'em. And that's as far into R&P territory as we should go right now.

My newest baby is a Glock 30 to replace my SW99. Now I get to accessorize!

Is this **** legal? You guys are a bunch of nut cases, seriously. Glad I'm living in Canada. The craziest thing I saw in my life was my friend getting punched in the face in grade school.

Everything posted in this thread is legal....unless you live in Kalifornia (heh). With an attitude like yours, I'm glad you live in Canada too. We don't need anyone else that associates firearms with nut cases and crazies. :roll:

Also, What does getting punched in the face have to do with guns? Was that why your friend got punched? The last anti-gun person to threaten me with a punch in the face did it <a href="http://techreport.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=40599&start=33">over words</a>, not guns. :D

Yes, it's all legal. If you'd like to argue otherwise, or continue your thought that gun owners are nut cases, please feel free to do so in R&P.

Thanks for listening.

Not to be a jerk or anything, but a picture of a Glock? That's like a picture of a flatbed truck, or a golf cart, or someone's grandmother, or something. :P

As promised... an "interesting" picture. Thanks to generous firearms laws in Virginia, and a very patient and tolerating wife. :D

Behold! My new Glock 30...

I live in Canada. I've only got two rifles and a shotgun (M1 Garand, Kar 98k, and a Winchester 1897 copy by Norinco). You'd be surprised how many gun owners there are in Canada.

That one is mine. Still new in the box with only the two rounds fired through it by Glock at the factory.

She has her own. ;)

Sorry for two in a row, but I just picked up my first Glock.

I've shot my brother's Glock (10mm) and I've shot my other brother's girl friend's Glock (.40 S&W), but I never had a Glock of my own....until now.

Image

Haven't fired it yet, but did already spend $$ on a Glock Light+laser for the rail. I plan on putting my Browning HP in the safe, and using this as my primary "bump-in-the-night" gun.

This thing is big! Makes my old 1911 seem small in my hand, and I'm not a little guy. :o

So, Darkmage....you mentioned that your wife was carry this when you met, and I think there's a picture of a 21 on her side around here somewhere)...is there a trick to holding the thing while firing? I've owned some big handguns, but the grip on the 21 is in a whole different ballpark. Anything I need to know about Glocks?

Can't wait to hit the range with it! :D :D

That's nice. Wish i was 21 or new somebody that would sell me a pistol. When I turn 21 i'll pick something up, any suggestions for a first?

I use to live in a Canada, I use to feel the same way about guns. That changed when I moved to the states. Since then I have fired both AKs and AR's, 12 gauge shotguns, etc.

Good idea. Lights on pistols is a wonderful combination. I'm surprised gun manufacturers haven't started trying to incorporate them together. Kind of like the cell phone/digital camera merger.

That would be here.:)

Actually, yes. Because Glocks are so light compared to steel or aluminum frame handguns, you need to keep a firmer grip on it. If you limp-wrist while firing it, the slide will rise up and snatch the case before it clears the ejection port. You'll end up with a stovepipe. It's not like you have to keep a death grip on it, but you can't shoot with a limp wrist.

Other than that, make sure you get as high a grip as you can with it. The web of your thumb should be jammed up tight to the top of the backstrap. You should be fine.

Congrats on your new Glock!

Suggestion: try before you buy. There's probably a local gun range that rents. Find something you like. Have a friend who's into guns introduce you to several models and have them explain what makes them different.

What are your goals? Fun plinking? Self-defense? Ride the recoil? :)

Kimber CDP Pro II, .45, 4" model. It passes through Kimber's custom shop, getting checkering on the front of the magazine well and under the trigger, night sites, and ambidextrous safety, as well as a bunch of rounded edges all over, to make for a better carry weapon.
