I wonder if it does the same thing to a boob reduction ... changes how they point.
If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.
I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either
New Glock day.
Always nice to have a two gun day.
Time to clean and inspect then load up for test firing.
Wow. Pic was large. Resized it.
It’s the STI Staccato P.

I have to say, of the two, the 1911-ish one is more interesting looking. STI?

So your saying a 1911 derived handgun is more interesting and aesthetic then a Glock?
I am trying to worked up a shocked face but......it’s just not happening. A lot of guys my age have this problem. .
Glocks are FANTASTIC tools. Maybe the best at what they offer all around. Interesting and aesthetically pleasing, however, are not on their resume.

Can't believe this is still around. I now own all but the small 10mm and the .45s.
Just got my first Glock this past week, a 43. I have owned guns 40+ years. I guess it was about time. Lol
Well, after many years of saying "Oh no, I will NOT buy a Glock!", I did. Found a Gen 4 G21 at a LGS last week, bought it, and shot it on Saturday. Even with the smallest backstrap it's still at the outer limit of what I can manage with my smallish hands.
I took my Springfield 1911 along too and shot them side by side, both offhand and from sandbags. The 1911 shot better groups (about 1/3 the size) from the bags, but I probably have to qualify that on a couple of counts. I'm much more accustomed to the 1911, and I only had one flavor of ammo to use (WW white box). Offhand, the difference was not as pronounced, which is probably more a testament to the fact that I shoot any handgun pretty abysmally.
That said, the G21 is noticeably softer shooting than the 1911, and I enjoyed shooting it. With the small backstrap I did NOT have to fight the G21 to keep the sight on target. I'll definitely be taking it back out again soon, and with a larger variety of ammo. I expect that over time both my comfort level with it and the group size will improve.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Expert308,
The Gen 4 is designed to be fired without the backstrap, with the idea that you can add them as required. The G21 Gen 4 without the backstrap is the same size and dimension as the G21SF (short frame).
If the smallest backstrap is too much, just take off the backstrap and shoot it without. A lot of us do.
Sorry, poor communication on my part. I did shoot it in the no-added-backstrap configuration, not using any of the included optional ones. Every grip has a backstrap, it's only recently that they've started to become interchangeable.
^^ You'll love it. Trust us.
With regard to Glock's backstrap system- I am so glad that I do not need to use their backstraps, because the way these backstraps attach to Glocks feels flimsy to me. The crosspin securing the backstrap is substantially smaller in diameter than the holes in the backstrap through which this pin passes. Looks like shit, feels like shit.
^^^^I couldn't agree more. For those of us with big mitts, I wish Glock would just make a larger tang/beaver tail. Maybe we will see it on the Gen 6 . It wouldn't even have to be that much. I love the feel of the grip without the extra back straps but I can't use it without one,unless I want extra pain and bleeding.
"You will buy another Glock"
Yep... I just got my long awaited black G48. I opted for the Amariglo Bold sights with are awesome IMO. I really like the new black slide finish the new Gen5s have. It's a nice pistol and very comfortable. Only put 100rnds. of Fiocchi through it so far but it's on its way to becoming my primary carry.
The trigger seems quite a bit different than any of my other Glocks in the take-up. It's pretty spongy. I'm sure as I get more rounds down range with it I will become more comfortable with it.
Now, I'm looking at holsters. The whole gambit. For IWB Hybrid options I'm looking at are Detroit Holster's "Woodward", Crossbreed "SuperTuck", Alien Gear "Cloak Tuck". IWB options are JM Kydex's IWB 3. And of course, no holster search would be complete without thinking about a Galco Miami Classic.
I hope those 15rnd mags pan out and end up being manufactured by MecGar, but I'm happy with factory stock and maybe some ETS mags.
All in all it's a great gun!!! Only gripe was it's the first blue line pistol that I bought that only comes with two mags.
Today I was going through my inventory and found that I did not have four on the list.
So I guess that means that I bought four Glocks recently.
Two G34's,G35 and a G19 gen5.
Been shooting the G34'S a lot in IDPA and USPSA.
I'm still a proud lifetime Glockless. The OP and my fanboy friends have put plenty of pressure on me over the 10 years of this thread but I've always found something else to better fill a perceived need in my collection. I even finally got a couple of plastic, striker-fired guns I like and use, but no Glocks.
I've even come to believe they are fine guns and completely appropriate for some situations - just not me.
Still Glockless in North Georgia
Buster - "THE SENILITY PRAYER
God, grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway; the good fortune to run into the ones I do; and the eyesight to tell the difference.
Keep your booger hook off the bang switch until .......
Did you forget about this one?
Just another day in paradise.

Well, I guess he didn't technically BUY a Glock ...
But a nice find indeed JWF..

You're in a safe place here man. You don't need to be ashamed and keep your plastic fetish in the closet.
Be loud n' proud!
