      Huh. Several years ago, I shot Hydra-Shok and Golden Saber 9mms next to WWB 9mm. The WWB just had a dim little flicker, while the premium stuff had a bright little fireball. Neither was enough to impair night vision, though.

      Someone posted an ammo test on the web a few years ago with photos of different ammo being fired at night. I seem to recall that the cheaper stuff had more flash than the premium stuff.

      Either way, I agree that the muzzle flash most likely does not affect anyone's night vision and that the main concern with the C model Glocks is the potential for injury when firing close to the body.

      One of the guys over at Glock Talk posted on the subject of flash from a comped/ported gun recently, and added a video he took of him firing his G23C on a semi-darkened indoor range. He fired five shots each, of three different .40 caliber loads:

      1st five rounds = 180gr. Blazer Brass FMJ (used for practice)
      2nd five rounds = 180gr. Hornady TAP FPD JHP (used for CCW)
      3rd five rounds = 180gr. Federal LE Tactical HST JHP (used for CCW and practice)

      And the movie clip can be seen here (until it gets too popular and they pull it for bandwidth reasons):

      He also stated: "It should be noted that I personally believe that WWB flashes bigger than any of the three that I had on hand. But if you look at the video you will notice a great difference between the cheap practice ammo and the expensive Hornady carry ammo."

      Less flash, AND less recoil with the TAP. It was a whole different sound!

      Interesting...

      Congratulations on your Glock purchase and welcome to the dark side. I'm sure that it will not be your last. By the way,
