    This one's for Mike Barham!

    I'm actually going to buy a *gulp*...... GLOCK!! Yeah, I'm going to the dark side!!

    I never really liked them much, even after shooting one a year or so back, but I shot my first IDPA event recently and had a blast. I figured if I'm going to get into that stuff that I should have a gun that seems a little more suited than what I have...most people there were using a Glock. I remembered what you said about their "Low bore axis" and how the trigger's reset is well suited for faster shooting, so I rented a G19 the other day. I shot really well with it, and really liked the trigger this time, especially since I knew what I was looking for. The first time I shot a Glock I didn't care for the trigger, but that was when I was just using my guns for plinking.

    BTW, I used my USPc 9mm for the IDPA I shot and I did pretty well with it, but I still think I'd do better with the Glock, especially considering how well I grouped with it my first time out and with rapid fire thrown in, too.

    Funds are short, so I agreed to sell my XD9sc. I love the gun, but I'm not going to get rid of any others, and I have a couple that still work fine for CC. Hopefully, I'll have a new G19 soon!

    step awaaaaayy from the plastic. Come on now lets not be hasty. Have you had the experiance, NAY the PLEASURE of shooting a 1911? Pay no attention to the man behind the Glock curtian.

    Not all of us have turned or will turn to the dark side. Nonetheless, best of luck with your new toy.

    Yeah, had the 1911 and loved it, but had to sell it when we needed some $$ in a heartbeat. It was the only one of my guns I never shot (because .45 is so expensive), so that was my justification. I FULLY intend to buy another 1911 someday!! I have to get reloading equipment first though!!

    My 1911 is my carry gun, but my wife just bought a Glock 19, and I have to admit, I kinda pushed her in that direction. I am feeling the tug to the darkside myself.

    Regarding reloading, that is a hobby I can fully recommend.

    Let us know how the contests go. I really want to go check out a meet sometime.
