Default glasshartt's range report

OK, don't make fun of me because it is a Glock. If I went with something else, I would not only have to buy 1 gun, I would have to buy 2. 1 for duty carry and 1 for off duty. Then I would have to buy at least 4 new holsters, 2 duty, 1 tactical thigh rig, and off-duty, and probably magazine pouches too. Having the off-duty with the same operational mechanics as the on-duty is the only way to go. If you have to use the off-duty, you want it to be as natural as the on duty.

Anyway, here goes. It was getting dark fast and I wanted to use the "Gen 4." This was it's first time at the range. We put the sticky target up at approximately 7 yards and I went at it. It was getting dark fast, it got to where I could't see the sights at all. Fired off 7 rounds and then had a squib. It was a good thing that I heard it. After breaking the 19 down to check the barrel, we decided to pack it up for the day. Here's the target>

Nice, Linda. What are the differences in the Gen 4 from what you had before (Gen 3?)?

Lon,

Linda has carried a Glock 19 Generation 1 for the past 16 years and it has gotten beat up pretty well. It has chunks and chips broken off the mag well lips and the frame but it performs as well today as it did when we first bought it but we decided it was time to upgrade. I'll leave the comparison to Glass.

Thanks for the report. Damn squibs.

Let us know how you like it compared to your other one after you've had a chance to wring it out.

Glass, those are all MOBG (minute of bad guy) and if it was dark enough that you couldn't even see the sights and your first time with that pistol, I say very well done. For sure let us know how you like the Gen 4 changes compared to your trusty Gen 1.

Very nice Glass!! Glock has improved my accuracy just by switching to Glock.. They are great and your shots are looking good!! I have a Gen3 19 and I love it. its big enough to stop any BG and small enough to carry ( if Illinois every lets us carry that is, laughable I know,but a guy can dream..LOL)...
