Did some shooting today including my two Ruger Blackhawks (.45 and 10 mm), my Marlin Golden 39A Mountie (.22), my Ruger LCP (.380), my SKS (7.62x39) and my Ruger P89 (9 mm).

I also put some rounds through this (.38-40).

Flip side - I have a friend who was a career army / airborne ranger / special forces guy and he dislikes Glock. I think just in principle. He's a Sig guy. He loaned me his Sig 9mm one day to try, I didn't like it at all. It shoots fine, it's nice and sturdy all steel, but I found his trigger a little heavy and that model is a single / double so the first round I had to pull the hammer back manually.

To each his own. I also built an AR-15 maybe 2 years ago now, but while half the world seems to want a carbine length barrel, I wanted the longest I could get, and heaviest. I found an upper kit in 7.62x39, 20" barrel and put that onto a Spike's Tactical multi caliber stripped lower. That makes it deer legal since 7.62 is bigger than .23 the minimum caliber i Virginia and I think many other states.

Some guys want 5.56 / .223 because it is a little lighter and flatter trajectory. I like 123 grains of lead more than 55 grains. Some people argue with me when I see them with a rifle marked .223 Win and want to tell me it's 5.56. Not if it says .223 Win ... pressures are not the same.

I saw the article about the Seals also Ken, I think it's a good endorsement. Somebody at work has a lock 17 and told me his mags will go in fine and give an extra 2 rounds. I took one to try, just for curiosity - thought I did expect that to be ttrue - and he's right. It sticks out an extra 1/2" or so. I would rather have 2 spare 15 round mags on my left side than one 17, or one 17 in and one spare 17.

I agree with Charles too, basically what I said initially - I would not want to try a second shot on a misfire. I'd be racking and loading a new round. But I'd also be shocked if my Hornady XTPs ever failed. I'll use other brands in FMJ for practice, and a few Hornady's occasionally, but never an FMJ for every day carry, and not many XTPs for practice because of cost.

Allanm, I very much enjoyed reading your post. I also have a Glock 19 and love it. I read where the Navy Seals just adopted it as their official sidearm. That 43 is a sweet shooting pistol and perfect for your wife. I was going to get one, but they were sold out, so I bought a Glock 26, with that I can also use the Glock 19 mags as back up. I just purchased a new Glock 30S .45, in that I can also use the Glock 21 mags for back up. I am going to take that one up to Alaska fishing. 

I hate it that so many Glocks ended up in the black market. That seems to be what happens when we arm the middle east. Austria should have known better. I like Austria however, and their quality is excellent, esp. in the Glocks.

Thanks for the comments.

Clint, that Glock 17 is a great gun. I rented one at Gunsite Academy in Arizona and I loved it, extremely accurate.

I have a Glock 17...just for the purpose of traveling around camping in our travel trailer. The Glock and four extra mags gives me all the ammo I would need. I have carried this Glock on duty for about a year. I have qualified with a 100% score with this Glock. We had Glocks in Iraq (I was an International Police Adviser) but were issued Beretta 92F. Some of the guys acquired the Glocks from those Iraqi Police Officers who were issued them by us then turned them on us. They didn't need them after that so a few of the American officers had those to carry. Me, I carried what I was issued and how it was issued. I am a 1911 .45acp EDC. American made and proud of it.

A note of interest. The USA gave 140,000 Glock 19 to the Iraqi police. I have seen 10,000 in one spot. Not long after the issuing of the Glocks to the Iraqi police we started finding them in the "Black" markets in Kurdistan.
