I think you guys were made for each other.
isn't this what PMs are for?
aww krott and big snake how cute
It's because Glock >* is the truth.
Glock's are reliable. New parts are easy to find. They're accurate out of the box.
I would have kept the XD and probably bought an XD9 if it wasn't for Springfield's policy on shipping new parts to customers.
Why the FUCK do I want to have to deal with shipping my pistol back to Springfield for a new extractor or if a spring breaks? Shipping a handgun around here would be a pain in the fucking ass.
ohh... and Striker fired pistols > hammers
I knew it would be eventually.. I mine more and more everyday
IMO how many times does this become an issue where do need parts? Maybe once or so in the time you own it? I never had to get parts for mine for this to be a deciding factor on getting a pistol?
I've been shooting a lot so I just imagine it'll eventually happen. Been doing about 1k rounds a month of 9mm lately. Having to deal with it once is too many times. Something breaks and I know it'll be like two or three weeks until I can shoot it once it gets shipped... Only place I could ship a pistol around here would be with UPS (they already lost my krieger barrel and the place here is the most unorganized location I've ever seen as well) unless I wanted an FFL to do it and then I'd have to shell out the money to pay for shipping and to pay the FFL for their service. I'd then just have to hope Springfield decided to reimburse for it all.
If it's easy for you to ship a handgun and you want to deal with this stupid policy, then feel free to purchase an XD.
I have no problems with an XD as a firearm though.
I don't like working on my own pistols anyways since I am not a gunsmith. If something needs to be replaced, I will ship it back to the factory or take it down to the gunshop and have it fixed by a pro or the factory under the warranty. Some people love to tinker though so I guess it would be an issue, I just rather trust it done professionally when it comes to my carry gun.
Who said I was going to attempt to install a part?
Running down to my local gunsmith who usually has guns back the next day is a little bit quicker and easier than shipping it off to a Springfield...
idk... maybe I'm one of the few that has actually had to deal with trying to ship a firearm and actually declared it as a firearm... It's not a quick run down the the UPS Store to send it off...
I shot a G21 today that thing is so wide it felt like I was aiming an ocean oil liner.
Its funny when I owned a glock I didnt mind the grip angle. Now that I dont have one anymore I dont know if I like the grip angle anymore. I also shot a 17 today and I liked it. I'll probably buy a 19 when I go back to the states.
i like it
I LOVE my 26. I'm thinking of ditching the 19 and getting a 2nd 26 for a range gun
aw how cute.
I didnt care for the width/looks. But functionally, you cant beat a Glock. They are like the honda civics of the firearms world. Cheap, reliable, tons of aftermarket parts and mods, but like the honda it seems like everyone has one.
What are AR15s then... Look at all the ricer parts you can add to them
You like the 26 as a range gun?
I'd rather a 19. The 26 gets uncomfortable to shoot after awhile because I only two fingers really gripping the grip.
Hmm well I dont have much experience with rifles as I dont own one yet. So I appologize to the AR owners.
I've got the +2 extensions on my 2 26 magazines, and otherwise I shove the 15 rounders from the 19 in it and let my finger grab that... I just like how short it is, I can get it back on target for followup shots so fucking quickly....
I mean, I like the 21 specifically.. but you're right, I probably like every glock
but a guy on my uspsa squad shoots a 21, I shoot it well (relatively )
I have a pearce (sp?) extension on one mag. It's a little more comfortable to shoot. It's mainly the length of the backstrap of the grip too.
