    Used a friends Glock 17, can't say that I didn't like it but I wasn't crazy about it. The grip was my main complaint, it felt a tad large in my hands (My hands might be a little on the small side) and after a little bit felt grimy in my hands. Its been a long time since I've shot a handgun (Own an 870 and I'm extremely comfortable shooting clays but, different ballgame). Snapped a picture of one of my targets, 7 yards shooting Remington Express.

    Nothing to write home about, but I'm not ashamed of it as I had a much better grouping than my friend whos gun it was. I'm pretty sure thats a knock to his mancard. :x:

    The 19 looks nice I definitely plan on checking it out. Pretty much every friend I have owns a different gun, so I'm going to whore around a little bit before I purchase something. :naughty:

    How do you read those police targets? What are the D/K things for?

    No fucking clue :wiggle:

    I think its Disable/Kill and the point value?

    And whoring is free :big grin: if theres something I want to check out and can't get my hot little hands on I'd rent it but, I'm a cheapass.

    I could definitely understand the "too big for the hand" feeling if was a G21 also

    You should try out the 19. The 17 didn't suit my hand well but the 19 was perfect.

    I shot a 21 once. It was what convinced me to go with a single stack .45. In my hands it was like trying to hold on to a brick with recoil :hs:.

    And :werd: to what everyone's saying about G19 > G17 in terms of ergonomics. I know they're basically the same, but something about the way the G19 is shaped makes it feel right at home in the palm of my hand. :o

    And no headshots? :mamoru:
     
  10. Either those holes are enormous or that target is pretty small.

    No kidding. Gripping a G21 isn't too far off from holding a 2x4 with one hand. I have large-ish hands and it was near the outside of what I could comfortably handle with one hand.
