    Shhhh - Don't tell anyone about my Glockenspiel

    I rented a G17 and G34 today - both of which I have previously owned. I liked the G17 more.

    Got the homeland Security Discount. And it comes with THREE mags. Couldn't pass it up.

    Before anyone has a cow about a Beretta guy and DA/SA obsessed guy buying a Glock - rest assured, it's just a range toy. I'd never carry it. No need to call for an ambulance! :eek:

    Haha, no. I've actually had 5 Glocks prior to this one (all 9mm). At this point in my life, I prefer DA/SA. I got this as a pure range toy,a nd i plan to try competition shooting in the next couple of weeks. I am at a disadvantage in that with a DA/SA.

    I didn't do a double tap with the G34 very well - but on the G17, the second shotw as right by the first - both in the circle. That made up my mind.

    I was actually planning to take my PX4 to the competition if I didn't like the G34. I was surprised I shot the G17 better

    I found out that I shoot the G19 better Gen 2 better than the others. It is a nice weapon and I plan on getting me a 10mm since I have most of the others for Black Bear protections. I plan on sticking with Underwood deep Xtreme Penetrator in 9mm, 40 S&W, and .45acp for protection in the woods. Does anyone shoot Buffalo Bore Hard Cast or Double Tap Penetration bullets?

    "Time" for a new Glock, eh? The Glock Clock claims its first victim!

    The pull of the Dark Side is strong...

    Ok, I hit the range and put 200 rounds thru the gun - Not much to say - it is a glock. As with a prev G17, I'm getting hit with ejected casings. But, at least it's not getting me in the face. They come lower. But, it's not every time.

    Anyway, gun is accurate and runs 100%

    I did change the sights out at the range. I bought some Warren Tactical Sevigny tritium sights. Very close to the sight picture on my Dan Wessons. I have been debating on whether I'd do it since I bought the gun. After a few rounds with the stock sights, I went back into the store portion and had them changed. I do like them a lot.

    Here are what they look like:

    When my 17 was new I had some brass to the face issues. It quit doing that after awhile nothing I did but just kept shooting it. I really like those sights.

    Thanks. Yea, I'm gonna give it a little time on the gun before I worry about it. On another forum, someone told me to try an aftermarket extractor or send it to Glock. I'll give it 1k rounds first to see what changes over time.

    Yes, I love the sights a lot. See, I have ALWAYS hated ANYTHING but 3 dot sights. Then I got my 1st Dan Wesson 1911 last summer. They have similar sights. I took a chance. I couldn't believe how much I liked them afterwards.

    This is the Dan Wesson:
