Default Grips Reshaped

That said, they are still a good gun. Nowhere near the best, but a good gun none the less. I want one chambered in 10mm. Though, I will probably change the trigger, the barrel (I shoot mostly lead), and possibly have the grips reshaped.
I certainly agree on the grip reshaping for all the guns I use for carry & for competition. My Glocks that I use for IPSC are completely reshaped & textured, my Browning HalfPower is reshaped & matted & my 1911 is matted & has a beveled, checkered & matted arched mainspring housing, as the straight housings never fit me at all. The only guns that aren't tailored to my hands are the ones I use in classes that require no modification in order to be legal, like GSSF matches. As stated earlier, ergonomics are as unique as the shooter & I like mine to fit me. That said, I like the feel of most pistols & understand why some shooters gravitate toward one pistol type over another. One caveat though, I don't like the feel of my G30 (its girth is too big for me), but once I draw it & start shooting I forget all about that because it hits where I point it, every time & quickly. Maybe I put too much stead in ergonomics...

Thanks for comparing the two! I think Glock is going to down size most of there stuff into a single stack option! The world seems to be crazy over micro 9s!! Will see if they dive in for a piece of the pie! They missed with the 42 in my opinion! Any 380 that you can't pocket easily is useless! To many 9mm made around the size of the 42! Thanks guys for the help and opinions and have a great weekend!!

I've come over to the dark side. (hangs head in shame) Not only did I buy my 1st Glock yesterday, it is a M22, in.40 S&W, also my 1st .40 S&W.

I couldn't say no.

We were at the Great Eastern Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, PA on Thurs., when we happened by the Atlantic Tactical booth. Wow, just wow, really good prices on nearly everything. While my cousin was checking out a great deal on a S&W M&P-15 Custom, the Glock deal caught my eye.

Police Trade Glock 22s w/ tritium night sights, 3 15-round mags. and box for $349.00 + tax. Well, I kinda thought about it for a day or 2, then when I rode up with my cousin to pick up his rifle, we were delayed by insta-check backlog. So, I asked to see one of the traded Glock 22s, after looking at a couple, the one I chose is almost like new with the slightest bit of holster wear at the front of the slide. Really clean internals and bore, and also had the extended slide release. Say no more.

I'm now the conflicted (not really) owner of a Glock.

I know pictures or it never happened, I think we all know what a Glock looks like by now.

After the next snow storm today, I'll try to remember to post a range report.

EMD, no need to feel bad about buying a Glock if it's what you wanted and it does seem like a damn good deal to boot.

the only shame is becoming a Glock fanboy!

If I had the money to spare, I probably would have bought it too at that price.

If I decided not to keep it, it would make great trade fodder.

WHAT?! HAVE YOU PEOPLE LEARNED NOTHING?!

My stance has always been that Glocks are evil, wicked, malevolent tools of THE DEVIL! You pernicious fools are taking your lives in your hands every time you allow one into the safety of your home!

Don't you know gun locks were created for GLOCKS?! To keep them from loading themselves and murdering the women and children while you are all asleep?!

Glocks are deady. They are intelligent. They are mobile and they are capable of taking you apart before you can even THINK about drawing one of your other (hopefully inanimate) weapons and seeking safety.

Yes. Glocks are living creatures. Capable of self motion, self thought, and self inflicted deadliness. You fools! You are playing with fire! And one day you will get burned. Police departments didn't begin issuing holsters with triple retention features until they began carrying Glocks.

Why you ask? Coincidence? NO I tell you! The fact was the subject of a massive cover up by the FBI. But the reason for triple retention holsters is that Glocks were drawing themselves. They were breaking leather! AND MASSACRING INNOCENTS! Think NYPDs statistics are because of poorly trained officers. No I tell you. It's because of their bloodthirsty Glocks.

You idiots keep packing those death machines and this is will be you one day. The last thing you will ever see will be the muzzle flash of that wicked piece of steel as it opens fire on your complacent glockaphile Glock sucking glockhole!!!!!

Exact same reasons I bought my first Glock, EMD! A few years ago I stumbled across a G22 trade-in configured like yours and for the same price. I'd been wanting to get a Glock and try 40S&W so couldn't walk away. Turned out to be a great purchase, caliber and gun, so I later added a G23 and G27. I think you'll be pleased.

They kill the Lego people too. Trust me, I've seen it happen. Little plastic bodies everywhere.
