Well, I have really never been a Glock fan. Now before you go bustin' on me, I've shot plenty of them, but it's been years back...when they were first the 'thing' to have. I didn't like the way they handled, grip feel, etc. Now, I was never one to knock them for working, because they were reliable as heck...from all I could tell. Later on, I thought the larger frame 45s and 10mms felt a little better in my hand, but still....give me a 1911, CZ, HiPower, even XD, etc. Well, fast forward, and I've not even touched a full-sized, Gen III Glock until Saturday. I'm in a buddy's shop and he's got a G20 sitting there. It's in primo shape, and I'm looking over the finger grooves and thinking about why they needed to do that to the frame, and poo-pooing the fancy light rail. I kinda absent mindedly start checking it out and handling it, and (low and behold) it fits my mits pretty good....even if the heel swell is obscene in the back. So, I keep throwing this 10mm up, thinking hmmm....This would work great on democrats, hogs, or even deer up close.
Then my boneheaded buddy tells me he'll take $400 for it.
So, after haggling over taxes and a box of ammo (just because we HAVE to haggle to complete a deal) and coughing up $430, I've now got a 2004 vintage (cherry) Glock 10mm to poke some holes with. It was kinda nice, since I can't remeber the last 'tactical' style firearm I bought. I had sort of taken a break from the tactical world, and was tired of working on stuff that didn't have nice wood or metal finishes or an obvious hunting heritage, etc....plenty of shotguns and older rifles or pistols....just nothing 'hi-speed' in a while. Well, I'm guessing I need some cool mag pouches, extended slide release, 3.5lb trigger, maybe a Bar-sto barrel, etc...or I could just shoot the snot out of it and tote it 'til it pulls my britches down.
For all of you Glock cultists out there, what say ye?
Anyhoo, just my good day of adding to the trigger collection.
Here's a thought: Let the ducks work and decoy.
