My new Glock 17

After going back and forth a hundred times, I made a decision and picked this bad boy up today. I liked this over the 19 because I didn't like the "short" grip. Took a while, but finally showed up. Put a quick 50 rounds through it and thoroughly enjoyed it

First magazine throught it. I still flinch and don't pull smooth, but slowly started dailing it in

Very nice! I have a G19 for carry, and have no problems with the grip. But I have small hands. Look into polishing the trigger, it makes a world of difference.

I definetely want to polish the trigger, but affraid to do any unsupervised gunsmithing. I was hoping at some point a CLSB'r could help me.

Does 3 officially mean I have a Collection?

Collection, yes, hording, not yet.

I bought my gen 3 with a polished trigger, and some other add one. I would pm Ponch from here for gun work. I have never had him do work for me, but I shot a few of the weapons he has worked on and they shoot

I can TOTALLY do that!


But probably just not get it back together again. LOL

Speaking of which, one of my pins sheared on my Ruger 22/45, and I took the whole thing apart to scrub out the trigger group while I wait for Ruger to send me a replacement part...yeah, that was over a month ago...lets see if I can put that fucker back together.
