Ok I was at my LGS browsing around as they had a H&K VP9SK that I was drooling over, and saw that they had the new gen 5 glocks in. I asked to hold it just to see what was different. And for the first time when I aimed at something I didn't need to raise my wrist to be on target and it actually felt good. Not as good as the VP9 SK mind you but not bad. I might even think about getting one,... right after I get the VP9SK, another Mod2 XD9, A XDe 9 and another one right after they make it in double stack. a Taurus 809 (for less than 200.00 a steal and a great trigger too bad they aren't making them anymore).Another browning high power.
Oh in revolvers the new 44 special ruger, a 4 inch 69 or 629 if I could find a good one. a compact 38 ether S&W early or Ruger LCR in .357 so I can shoot it without worry. After I get all these I think I might be ready to get a glock.. But at least from now on I won't bad mouth them.

Finally bought a glock 19 this past year. Am now in process of imitating it's big wide open "old man" sights on other pistols. While some hate those cheap plastic white outline sights, they be just the thing for old eyes up close and friendly.

I found the 45 ACP ergonomically not to my liking. I have never seen the G 41 SF which is said to have a smaller grip. I did buy a G17 and a G43 when I found out Glock give first responders a discount. It's called the "Blue Label" program. Check it out EMT's, etc. are covered. I used to say plastic guns have no soul, but changed my mind when I got a discount, . Money talks I guess, regards, Mike


Mike I can qualify for the"Blue Label" in a couple of ways,First I am a Nurse that volunteers with the Reserve Medical Corps, and secondly I've been volunteering with the County Sheriffs department as an emergency communications person for 26 years. And once I get another H&K VP9 I might just might get a fifth gen Glock before I really retire to my reloading room

Sad but true, for a double-single action the Taurus 800 series has one of the nicest trigger pulls and quickest resets around.Even as good or better than a SIG. As much as I like my 840(which I bought just to have an inexpensive 40S&W to shoot the Sheriff's ammo they gave us hams as a thank you for helping each year) I think Taurus made a good decision in cutting back from a new model a month to keeping those that are making money.
My youngest son wants my od xd9 and I have told him that he just has to exchange it for a gray mod2 XD9, that way I'll have a pair. Evan's reasons for carrying 2 has more than one thing going for it, even with my bad back if I carry 2 of the same weight my back doesn't bother me but if I carry different weights I have back aches within the hour.

Pretty amazing to realize that Gaston Glock had no previous experience designing firearms.... he sure hit it out of the park his first time at bat!

Right: get it cheap enough, it becomes a good investment, regardless of anything else.

Another 'reason' I've 'found' for 'needing' to get a Glock, is how popular they are. Like with AKs, whether or not you prefer them, it's always good to be able to shoot them well in case you ever end up needing to use one 'in a pinch'.

Or so I keep telling myself....

And I really have found that carrying two of the same thing doesn't hurt my back so I need 2mod 2xd's,VP9's xde's etc. And since I don't win lotteries or buy tickets until I can stand long enough to take a mag80, or Tom Givens class or even another Frontsitght class I need to be happy with what I have


Yep! Just when I think I've gotten every gun I 'really need', another one pops up. And so far it never seems to be a Glock.

Like some folks seeing that cute little puppy at the animal shelter: I just find it hard to say 'no' to a gun that's giving me that wide-eyed innocent 'look' and begging me to take it home...

Oh no I have a good friend who is a kahr fan who just hasn't bought one yet. If he could walk into a store that had the one he wanted he would be there for sure.


If my experience is any guide, your Kahr-loving friend could find the exact one he's looking for--- and likely cheaper as well--- on the Internet.

I haven't yet seen a gun at my local gun stores that I couldn't get cheaper online, even factoring in shipping. But maybe it's different out your way.

And some of the best deals can be had by buying privately from folks on Armslist.

For goodness' sake, Terry, be careful! We don't want to lose you to The Glock Side...

From now on, maybe it would be better to just look...
