REALLY enjoying the new SIG 220 in ten mm. My ONLY issue....WOW but does this guy THROW BRASS. A few were 50 feet away! WTF? Like secondary projectiles, capable of maiming.

Now to build some dedicated 180 and 200 gr rounds for the 220. Accuracy test, over the chrono, etc. With any luck it will like the recipes that I feed my S&W 1006/1076.
And so far...it does seem to,

THANKS for the heads up on THAT one! Me and two other buddies took advantage of the deal. I bought three , 50 rd boxes of assorted 10mm and several 20 rd boxes of 9mm carry ammo.

Any idea HOW LONG the sale goes?

I signed up on their site...So I should hopefully get any other sale updates in the future. 35% is some nice savings. Thanks again.

Picked up my M&P M2.0 Compact today.

Fantastic gun. Exactly what I was looking for, not as big as my duty weapon, but bigger than my Shield.

Only issue: the vendor threw in an upgrade to factory night sights, but the rear sight is waaaay off center drifted left. Going to take it to the range tomorrow to see how big of an issue it is.

Bought another CZ nine the other day...a neglected auction on GB, snagged it for a very good price...too cheap to pass up. Headed to my FFL to get my new P01.

Also grabbed half a dozen mags for cheap on another site....so stocked up on CZ ...for the time being.

Hey guys, not really a gun enthusiast here but I'd like to change that. I know the basics, nothing too in depth though. Have only shot a couple dozen times with my dad at a range and that is it. Just completed my CCW class and have a Glock 19 gen 5 on the way. I plan to do quite a bit of range time and really know the gun before I start carrying it. Do you guys have any tips or recommendations? For the glock or anything gun related for that matter haha. I want the G19 only as my carry gun, I'd prefer a 1911 but it's a bit too large for me to conceal comfortably, I'm 5'7 and weigh 145lbs haha. Thanks for any input and advice, hope to be stopping by this thread more frequently!

Get a good outside the waist band holster, be safe and don't carry it in the waist band.

Have you shot a Gen 5 Glock? Lots of people complaining the new grip cut out is uncomfortable.

I ran a G19 Gen 5 through an exercise while at Sig Academy. It was a real FBI gun as I borrowed it from an FBI agent. I didn't notice anything odd or uncomfortable about the grip. I rather enjoyed shooting it and would buy one if they brought a G22 5th gen to market as I have to carry a .40 on duty; either a G22 or G23.

Who am I kidding? I'm going to get a G19 5th gen in the near future as 9mm Luger (9x19) is an approved off-duty carry caliber.

The only thing a Glock needs are night sights and a holster.

When not at a range:
-Dry fire, dry fire, dry fire, dry fire, dry fire. Did I mention dry fire?
-Practice presentation from CCW.
-Practice reloading with empty mags - no live ammo near you (preferably in another room)
-Practice malfunction clearing drills
-Practice the above in low light or the dark

You will be presently surprised at how these actions will build muscle memory.
