We had a great winter with plenty of rain. Actually, it helped get the season started earlier than usual.
Locally, the crawfish are $1.75-$2.25 lb. live, which is down over a dollar at this time last year.
I predict when they peak in May-June they will be $1 lb or less, live.
C'est si bon, Sha'!

I can't say there was anything wrong with the Glock I bought and sold. I was brought up shooting revolvers. I prefer SA/DA semi-autos because the can be used by people with revolver only experience with very little training.

Another issue I had with the Glock is it's safety mechanism. If someone tried to disarm me before I got a Glock clear of holster I would likely shoot myself. Glock fanboys say just keep your finger off the trigger. I am not naive enough to think I can override the natural urge to clench to maintain control of the weapon.

I agree on the safety. You can't always override certain bodily reactions. Clenching is one that can happen when faced with a stressful scenario. Glock "safeties" do nothing to prevent that. While I always keep my finger off the trigger til I'm ready to shoot I want something in place to prevent a clench reaction or in case my finger slips. For those that say "well if your finger slipped its your own damn fault!" Well no ****! But I want safeties that will prevent me from potentially ****ing up and costing me my leg or worse a life. A manual safety takes 1/4 of a second to manipulate but can save you from a lifetime of sorrow.

I'm guessing y'all like the thumb safety on the M&P. I have shot both, with and without. I prefer the M&P without the thumb safety.

Hmmmmm, I wonder if I should start a Glock VS M&P thread.

Already been killed and beaten. Please don't. I had an M&P and sold it. Hated the trigger. I'm a Ruger/1911 fan.

At the top left side of this page, there is a white search bar. Search the site, there is a good chance that thread has already been created.

The external safety issue is well covered by spending lunch money on an external trigger block safety. I use Safe T Blok.

Had my Glock 20 with me cocked and locked for over 20 years. I appreciate the locked function this device brings to my firearm. If someone gets my handgun away from me in a fight, it is useless to them, as they cannot shoot the gun not understanding what is preventing the gun from shooting.

You have never had a Glock. I can tell this for one reason.
You say that "if someone tried to disarm you before you got the glock clear of the holster you would likely shhot yourself".
I have a question for you then. How do you put your finger on the trigger if it is still in the holster? Do you have one of those holsters that only hold the barrel of the gun. Every holter that I have see that fit a Glock cober the trigger and the gun must be clear of the holster before your finger can event touch the trigger.
