Take more vitamins, and I think I heard (from the voices in my head) the more firearms you own the longer you will live! So get down to your lgs.

well i'd be 93,and my great grandpa just passed away at 99.5,so maybe i'll still be around.By the way his family moved he from Austria just before he was born.

well i bought my first 1911 two days before its 100th ,but i already own a glock so i'll have to figure something else out when the time comes.

Interesting, subie-jeep. My maternal grandfather also made it to 99.5. Sorry to hear you just lost yours.

In regard to the 1911, I have a 1913 Luger that's about to turn 99. And still shoot it, we put a few magazines through it last month.

They're just now marketing the G17 Gen4 25th anniversary edition.

Did I miss 4 years? What was Glock producing before the G17?

Glock's first gun was the G17, the reason they started with 17 as their model number is because it was the 17th attempt at a patent and production... They developed the Glock polymer frame and tenifer slide for the Austrian military to replace the WW2 era Walther P38 pistol.
