    Maybe there are more durable auto pistols. Maybe the 1911 or CZ but for durability you chose
    very well. There are lots of comparisons out there but really, the Glock is an all-round damn
    good investme...

    Could not resist, it's like America's Next Top Model.OK, I also just got a Glock. Model 36 with
    only six rounds in the magazine. It's my pocket rocket. I agree with Speed3. I figure that if I

    following article which is very interesting. I think that even the M193 round will penetrate
    plywood at 600 yar...

    Thanks snakedriver, it was probably 300m. not 200m. That is battle-sight zero for the A1. As to
    long range, I can't talk first hand but know those that shoot the AR at 600m. with iron sights

    Just came back from the range where I broke in the new barrel and dialed in the iron sights. My
