New Glock Owner
 
Just bought a Glock 32c .357 sig, haven't shot it yet, can't wait, just wanted to say hi to everyone and glad to be a member of the community.

Nice! I hope your new Glock turns out well.

I just bought a G23 Gen4 a few hours ago too. Kinda reversed the numbers from your 32! :D

wondering
 
was thinking about changing the factory sights on my new glock, was looking at these TAS Pistol Sights Tactical Aiming Solutions

Does anyone have any experience with these sights? what do yall think?

I use Tru-Glo on all my Glocks, however I have read nothing but good reviews on the TAS'.... I just don't have a convenient way to try them before I order

If it were me, I would put a few rounds(to be read a couple hundred or more) through it first. Really feel it out and be confident it is the pistol you want in your hands before you invest too much time or money adding to it. I have a buddy who bought some sort of 8.5" barreled .357 mag revolver and before he ever shot it he took it to a smith and had the barrel ported and the entire body refinished. He even had the smith jewel the grooves on the cylinder ( if I remember correctly). The gun was absolutely beautiful when all the work was done and it looked incredible. He took it out several times and put upwards of 1000 rounds of various .357 and .38 loads. After all his trial and error, he determined he didn't care for revolvers nor did he like the feel of discharging the .357 round. Ultimately he traded his revolver for a Glock 23 Gen 4. (I think it was gen 4). He was so happy with his new Glock, but in the end he was several hundred dollars behind.....

Excellent point, Werminator! And one we should repeat more often when someone wants to make changes before putting many rounds downrange. Sometimes a gun just doesn't work out for you and it's best to find out soon.

And of course if it has to go in for warranty work, it's best not to have lots of changes. Yeah, shake out the gun while it's stock and be sure it works first.

thanks for the great advice, will definitely put some rounds through it and will also try it out as my conceal carry weapon to see if i fall in love with it or not

bcountry, well to the wonderful world of Glock and even better the world of .357 SIG! I too in the last few weeks bought a G32 (no compensation) and love it! you will enjoy the shooting experience sooo much. Easy carry piece as well.

if your looking at sights, for my money nothing beats Ghost ring iron sights. center of mass dream! here a few pics at diff. angles

thanks dodger blue, will take a look at the iron sights you mentioned, my conceal carry piece for the last 4 years has been XD .45, wonderful shooting gun, but just had to dive in on the .357 sig from glock.

Funny thing is when i went to the gun store to see if the owner could order it for me he asked me like 3 times was I sure I wanted the C model and finally I asked him what was the big deal, he laughed and said I hope you own some good ear plugs casue its going to be loud, never thought about that before, but I always wear them when I shoot anyway.
