I've shot a ton of WWB, nothing wrong with it at all. The only thing I've ever seen written about WWB is that many .380s have trouble with the flat nose of their FMJ ammo - and I've experienced this first hand in Sigs, Walthers, Bersas, and other .380 pistols...

Here is a a reply to a request for info for a Lone wolf Glock barrel conversion. 3rd reply down talks about WWB.

Lone Wolf Glock 23 40 cal. to 9mm conversion barrel and appropriate mags

If you do a search about WWB reliability
you will find other posts from forums talking about it.

Thanks! I dont know mine didnt like the Winchester rounds for some reason I just finished shooting 100rds of Federal today without a problem I thought maybe I limp wristed @ first but I think I might be able to rule out operator error on this one. I'm hooked and already thinking of another Glock purchase sometime in the future not sure which model though choices, choices.

I actually just purchased a 19 myself. It's my third Glock, after a 27 and a 22. Love this little pistol! I've had great luck with Glocks all my adult life and always seemed to just naturally shoot them well. Plus it's small and light enough that even I, at 5' 8" and 175...OK OK...180 pounds...can easily conceal inside the waistband and carry it all day without hardly knowing it's there, yet it retains a high capacity.

Glad to hear there are so many others so happy. IT's a fun club to be a member of.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Josh

What would you guys recommend for some good indoor range target shooting ammo? Thanks for your advice and expertise in advance.
First of all, I never fire reloads, never! My primary target ammo for .380, 9mm & .45 is WWB. In my area they are readily available at WalMart and a few other spots. But remember that price and availability usually determine what you buy unless you're a seriously competitive shooter The only factory ammo I would never use is "WOLF", it's made in Russia and it's nasty stuff, really dirty, don't use it. The steel casing will eventually destroy your gun's ejector.

Josh,
You and I are the same size although I'm not real sure I'm still at 175 either.. LOL
We carry the same weapon as well. What kind of holster do you use and at what position do you wear it. I'm having an issue with printing when I wear it at 4 o'clock and that 's the preferable position for me but I have to move the gun back to nearly 5 and then my draw is somewhat compromised.. I need to wear carefully chosen shirts or I'm very self conscious and VERY careful how i move..

Bill

Bill,
Please excuse my interruption of your discussion with Josh about a holster for a Glock 19.
I have one too and finding a holster has been torture for me but I believe I found the solution. By the way I'm similiar in size to you guys at 5'9" & 160lbs.
Anyway it's the Galco Trident Kydex IWB. I ordered it on line on a Monday and had it on Friday. It really holds my gun tight to my body at about 4: Oclock.
Jack

Not an interruption at all. I welcome the feedback. I'll look into the holster you bought. This morning, while getting ready to go out, dressed in shorts and a "T". I picked a shirt that was a little bit smaller than usual (or else I got fatter overnight) and I saw that I couldn't wear my Glock at all with the IWB I have. It just as well could have been in a OWB. I instead went to my Walther PPK/S . For that gun I use a DeSantis IWB.. My preference is to use an IWB with belt clip versus belt loops.

Your referral to your Walther is ironic because I also have a Walther PPK/S in .380acp and the DeSantis IWB w/clip. It can also be worn OWB because it has a belt loop on the side opposite the clip. Is this the same holster as yours? Also, when did you buy the PPK/S and how do you like it?
