I think the movies have helped with Glock customizing, of which I am all for. It's nice to give a new perspective on a solid platform that has been ridiculed as the "block" for years. I like the looks of most of the ones I have seen. I would like to get a Grand Master by TTI but the cost,(although I understand the time/work that goes into them is not cheap) and wait times are more than I care for, mostly the wait times.


Yeah I think I always saw and appreciated the utility and reliability of Glock, but I hated the way it felt in my hand. I can practice and be efficient with the grip angle.. I’m talking about that hump on the back strap. I would have never purchased a Glock if this customization industry hadn’t come along and gotten so affordable.

Garrett Landers at Landers Weapons Systems completely reshaped the grip for me and then added stippling. Now I don’t have that hump and the angle is easier for me to get used to. Then, everything else addressed how much I hated the cosmetics. In order for me to buy a Glock I needed it to look and feel nothing like a Glock - and that’s what I’ve got now. Maybe it’s silly to some, but I love it.

You have excellent taste in guns as well as women, congrats!

Indeed you are a lucky man, sir. I'm just fortunate that my wife doesn't put me out in the literal doghouse if I bring one too many gun-related 'merchandise' items home. But her evil 'you bought what?!?' eye still burns into one's very essence and boy does it hurt like the dickens. Eek

Picked up a 19 and put the HD XR sight on it (it's my first with these sights; never heard of them until now. I've been using HD but was attracted to the thinner front post). BTW, question on this - why make the front thinner vs making the rear wider? Maybe it doesn't matter....

Anyway, it's been a loooonnng time since I've been to the range. Various things but in any case, long time. Perhaps not since late last year - I don't remember going out this year at all.

That being said, the groups are still okay. Not great but I'm keeping them w/in 2" at 12 yards. The problem is that I'm pulling left. Now, I've always pulled left (for whatever reason - pretty consistently) so all my glocks have the rear right more toward the right side of the frame.

However, I've move this sight all the way to the right (sight frame at the edge of the slide) and I'm still pulling left. Again, groups are typical of my level of competency. So, I'm not sure if it's me or the sights.

I'll try again in a week or so and bring one of my 19's that's spot on out to 25 yards (at least horizontally). Oh, I also notice that these sights on this glock likes to be dot over target. My other glocks are top of sight over target. I'd still keep things in the A zone for all glocks out to 25 yards but there is a difference in centers between this and the others.

Trigger sucks on this one. I'll change it out to a ghost connector before I got out next time. I knew before hitting the range but wanted to try out the new glock as-is first.

I got close-er onece or twice, but I still haven't bought a Glockola. I like the idea of the Glock in terms of design and materials, but I hate the grip angle. Why would Glock NOT use the 1911 grip angle that works for Everybody ? I don't understand why Glock neglects the market that likes the more traditional grip angle. Makes zero sense to me. If the Glock had a better grip angle, I would have got the big 20 for the 10mm for woods carry, scouting, hiking etc. As far as I know, the big 20 is the lightest most soft shooting high cap 10 in existance. I like that. But I can't live with the querky grip angle. I bring a glock up the same way I do all my guns, revolver or auto alike, and the damn Glock isn't pointing where I'm looking. Makes me crazy because I want one but I can't have one. What good is the mighty 20 to me if I can't point it instinctively ? Maybe I'm just too old fashioned and out of datel.

Buy one. Use it. You may get used to it. If not, put it in the safe or sell it. Glocks are relatively cheap compared to sigs, hk, et al. You can try to resist but if you give it a chance, likely you’ll have a bunch quick. Wink.

I bought a G45 today. My first Glock. I have resisted because I mostly shoot cast bullet reloads. But I figured I should probably have a Glock. I like the features, full size frame with shorter barrel and slide. It reminds me of a Colt Commander.

If only I could have waited it out. Mad
Might have to sell my baby poop 19X and get a G45.. Big Grin



But then again maybe keep the 19X for the longer front strap, 19 rd mags, and night sights.

so the designation 45 ... is for a 9mm?

Ironic, I realize it was probably the next number in their line up but I wonder why they didn't make it a 45 caliber?

Because Glock model numbers have no correlation to caliber. None. Never have.

Keep both. My 19X night sights I gave away since the gen5 sights don't work for me. I'm standardizing on Ameriglo Agent gen3/4 sights on all my Glocks.

I already ordered a set for my Glock 45 which I'm told will be ready for pickup next Friday. I will make a spot for it in my 19X case. I also have a TLR-7 ready for the 45 as well.




Not minority enough!

Yep, that's why I said "I realize it was probably the next number in their line up"

I re-entered the glock ownership with an FDE G17 3rd gen. New for mid-$400's. May never shoot it, but its there for the collection.

Wish I never sold the G20c from the 1990's though.

Mine shipped, will be at the FFL Tuesday.

Ameriglo Agents and an OEM extended slide release on the way as well.

Already plenty of 17/19/21/22rd mags around. Big Grin

Oh, I spoke too soon. There's no latency, but you are in denial.

You have, in fact, bought a Glock and it's only a matter of time before you give yourself over fully.

You know what they say- bipistolality is just a stopover on the way to Glockville.


Sorry, Big Grin but the G43 is no more. I didn't like it, and never shot it, so there was just no reason to own it.

I stand by my original theory: you either love them, hate them, or modify them until you like them.

How do you know you don’t like it if you don’t shoot it?


That’s like my kids saying they don’t like foods they’ve never tried

The Gen 5 MOS models intrigue me, this coming weekend I may need to check them out (if a LGS to me has them).
