Glock 22

G19, G33, G20

My Dad has the origional G17 with no grip and as I would say the "suction cup clips"

A 19 with burned out nite sites (mepro) and lots of 15, 17 and 33 round mags. A 22 with 2 15 and two 10 rounders (got it cheap) Should get a 29 rounder for it.(Scherer) Had 3 of the tiny ones, 26 and 27 (awesome with long mags), but traded them off. I prefer 2nd generation as the finger grooves dont match my fingers and became uncomfortable while shooting the .357 Sig cal.

A heap O'plastic.


I am partial to the 45acp, but the 9mm's are just fun for plinking with the kids.

Oh, all of them are carrying night sights, I like a consistent sight picture.

Good trade. I'm partial to the .45 cal Glocks myself. I've had a Glock 19 for awhile, but its been sitting at home ever since I picked up a Glock 21. The Glock 21 is IMHO the best Glock ever made. Your experiences may differ.

Link Posted: 10/17/2001 5:45:20 AM EST
I truley love my 21, but ever since I have gotten a 36, it is what i carry day in and day out. Now that winter is approching, I might switch over to the 21, but I just don't see the need (to be honest).

If I can't do it with whats in the 36, the extra 3 rounds aren't going to help much.

The extra three rounds might not help, but the extra six might...... What kind of G-21 do you have? Mine holds 13 rounds (unless I add a mag extension and then it holds 15). I thought the 36 only held 6 or 7.

Link Posted: 10/17/2001 11:24:50 AM EST
I have all low cap mags for my 21's. (Actually I have a 13 rounder, but since I have about 20 10 rounders I never practice with it).

10 rounds is it for the 21 for me, 7 rounds for the 36.

Clinton can eat the peanuts out of my poop...thank you very much!

Glock 19, Uncle Mike slip on rubber grip, tru dot night sites, many 10 rounders (original) and a few 15+2 Glock Preban Hicaps.

It travels with me where ever I go. I like the 9X19, and the Uncle Mike grip makes it very comfortable and accurate to shoot. The tru dot night sites make it night stand handy. ("say hello to my little friend").
Link Posted: 10/17/2001 3:43:44 PM EST
hey I thought that we already done this once...
one more time
g21 3.5 lb trigger.....about8 10 round mags
g30 3.5 lb trigger,extended slide release,only got 2 mags for it but it uses the 21 mags
g22 3.5 lb trigger,night sites 6 10 round mags

i thought about a 36 but i will probably just get another 21........

(2 glocks i want to see made)
.45 acp longslide without the ports & a g21 with the grip cut to take a g30 mag
Link Posted: 10/17/2001 4:06:23 PM EST
G21 with 2 FML-13+2, 1 NFML 13, 2 FML 10

G30 with 3 FML 10, LaserMax

Fobus Holsters for both. I agree with previous posts. The .45ACP is awesome in Glocks and for a Concealed Carry Pistol the G30 fits the bill awesome: It fits my hand like a glove, has excellent capacity in a potent cartridge, add to that the ability to accept G21 mags (I carry my 13+2's with my G30 if I am going to someplace sketchy).

I would like to get a G36 and a G22 with some hi-caps for some variety.
Link Posted: 10/17/2001 5:14:35 PM EST
4 x G17's
1 x G26

numerous mags

10 rounds is it for the 21 for me, 7 rounds for the 36.!

I just ordered another 5 3d gen 13 rounders (and I've already got 3 or 4 laying around). I won't go into the price.... I know its only an extra three rounds, but........

Link Posted: 10/17/2001 6:29:20 PM EST
G17 for target with tons of mags hi-cap and 10 rounders
G23 for carry

G21 or G20 will be my next buy for a gun, then maybe a G31

No baby glocks for me. They are just too small for my hands when the G21 grip is purfect for me.

17 and a 27.

Love em both

G22 for me.

While I'm here, I have two 10 round mags that are fracturing at the front of the magazines, in front of the feed lips. Is this a common problem? Will it hurt for me to go ahead and remove the fractured material? It looks like I can then blend the gap to try to keep the fracture from continuing to run.

Both of the original magazines exhibit the same problem. Thanks for the info, I'll contact Glock.

Glock 19 & 36 both with night sights.

Link Posted: 10/20/2001 1:52:20 PM EST

Traded a Kel-Tek P11 and a Taurus PT945 for it new. Havent looked back since. Good CCW weapon and more importantly it hits where I point it. Couldnt say that for the other two.

Thoughts on changing out the guiderod with a metal one?
Link Posted: 10/21/2001 2:47:22 AM EST
Glock 20. Goes boom every time. It's right up there with my IPSC 1911.
Link Posted: 10/21/2001 5:33:54 AM EST
I'm still new to handguns, a used G22 being my first. I was really excited when I first got it but I have become frustrated with it. I just can't shoot the thing accurately. It has Hiene Night sites and I have had to drift the rear site a couple of times.

It seems like I go out for an afternoon and it takes me all day to finally shoot where I want to. Then I feel like I finally have it figured out, like I know the tricks and have the sites where I need them, but next time I take it out, I need to start all over again.

I'm certainly not Glock bashing. I have read so many good things about them that I'm sure its me and not the gun, or maybe I bought a lemmon or an abused gun. But I bought my Dan Wesson 1911 and it is a night and day difference. There is no work involved, I just point and the hole appears where I want it.

Maybe I need to spend many, many more hours with my Glock, but it just seems like a bad omen that it takes so much more work to do well this gun. I have heard it said that some people just have trouble with Glocks, and at some point I'm gonna have to say this isn't worth it anymore.

I will say the Glock is totally reliable, simple to disassemble, and very durable, however it might not be the gun for me. Any advise for me other then practice practice practice?
Link Posted: 10/21/2001 6:26:47 AM EST
CS Have you let anyone else try shooting your gun? were the Hiene Night sites installed when you bought it? Maybe the owner/installer did not properly install them. Try having a Glock armorer look at it, and if that doesnt fix it and whoever shoots it cant hit the side of a barn with it call glock directly, and I could bet that they would gladly help you out. Oh by the way is it a stock barrel?

<------My nickname speaks for itself here!

CS, it sounds like your having problems with your grip/grip strength. The Glock's combination of polymer frame and large grip size make it hard to get comfortable with at first. I went from shooting 1911's (notoriously good fit) to Glocks. When I first shot the different Glock models I've owned, I would shoot low and to the left. Since I was getting decent groups on the wrong part of the target, I decided it was my fault.

The first thing I did to correct my poor shooting was to determine the specific problem. The problem was that I was never really getting a good grip on the Glock. I shot my 1911 again and realized that I was really only using two or three fingers to shoot it. I was only really gripping with my middle finger and thumb, and to a certain degree my trigger finger.

This is getting long so... I started to make a concious effort to get a good grip every time. This involved thinking about applying even grip pressure with all of my fingers.

PS- If your shots are all over, but near the center of target, the Glock may be jumping around a bit in your hand. Try some grip tape (skateboard tape) where you think you may not be getting a good grip, and remember, "Front sight, Focus, Squeeze."

PPS- Hail Gaston Glock.

Thanks LT, coincidently I did take a class yesterday. I found I have some strange habits I was not aware of. During the class (taught by NYS IDPA champ) I started to display some habits that are not so much "bad" as they are inconsistent. Little things like re-adjusting my grip between shots, or holding my head up higher or lower after mag changes.

During the class we only used my 1911 and I have yet to try what I learned with my Glock, but will be curious to see if it makes a difference.

Link Posted: 10/21/2001 9:53:22 AM EST

Interesting, I'll try that, I too shoot low and to the left for the most part. I can usually correct the elevation but I still have a hard time with the windage.

Guess I just need to spend the time and money to take a day and kill this problem.

Thanks guys,

Third gen Glock 23.
I didn't like the finger grooves so I Dremeled them off and wrapped skateboard tape around the grip. I also Dremeled right under where the middle finger gies under the trigger guard and I also Dremeled the casting flash out from inside the trigger guard.


The price was right (very right) and I wanted the rails to mount a light.

One little Glock 19. Used it for IDPA. Nice firearm.

Until I got my Bowning HP! Now that baby is sweet and points very natural in my grip. Hardly even have to aim to keep things in the 10 ring out to 15 yards.

And the HP trigger doesn't pinch my finger like the Glock.

First glock was a used G-17 I put 30,000 rounds thru it without a hiccup.Bought one of the first G-35's. This week I just bought a G-19, what a great carry gun! I just finished a complete receiver strip on the '19' to fix a 'gritty' trigger. The gun had been stored dirty for about 10 years(ex-state trooper owned it)I cleaned and detailed it, and replaced the disconnector with a new 3.5 I had on hand.Problem solved, brilliant design...thank you, Gaston!

Why buy a glock when there's a Walther P99 available?

I've owned a Glock 26, but traded it in on a Glock 31 in .357 sig. yes i plan on buying a .40 cal conversion barrel later on for more ammo choice.
