I finally decided to get a new light for my nightstand pistol, and went with the XC1. It arrived today, and I quickly took off the old M3 light and mounted the XC1. While I will miss the ability to quickly remove or add the M3, the light that the XC1 makes is far superior. No hot spots and very even, nice, clear light. The form factor is great; it feels lighter than the M3 did. Also, the switches are very similar (at least for the momentary switch) to the M3, so I am already used to that. I ordered a holster for it and it should arrive this week. I'm looking forward to getting in some range time with this combination to see how it holds up.
I also added Mepros to the pistol Saturday night. They don't seem to be bright to me as my Trijicons were on my 92FS when it was new, but still pretty good in low/no light. Between the Mepros and the XC1, I think I have a good, solid CCW/nightstand pistol.
As for the light itself, the unit has an aluminum body and metal clasps and a metal...
My Joker of a G22, all gilled up and aggressively textured.
In 2009, Glock came out with an updated version of their gun that featured better ergonomics named the “Rough Texture Finish, Version 2," or commonly just called RTF2, the topic of which has been a long and well talked about source of debate here among the forum.
Besides the texture, along the slide, a set of scalloped cutouts replaced the strait up and down slide serrations that had been a facet of the Glock since its introduction in the 1980s. These cutouts were shaped like thumbnails and were instantly but dubbed ‘fish gills’ by those who encountered them.
Besides the slide, the entire lower frame grip surface area was stippled in fine lines. These lines worked like non-skid and gave the gun an almost instant tackiness when picked up, eliminating complaints from those who contended the Glock sometimes got slippery...
(Three new Portage County K9s include Ricky, Felon and Glock, who apparently is really interested in something off camera)
The peaceful Ohioans of Aurora, Kent, Ravenna, Streetsboro, and Tallmadge can now sleep better at night knowing that a three pack of new canine (K-9) cops are on the scene, ready to help clean up the streets while they slumber. Among these police pooches is one Officer Glock.
As reported by this week's Record Courier, the Portage County Sheriff's Department is putting three new K9 units on the rolls after extensive training and state certification.
Glock is a 19-month old male German Shepherd imported from France that completed training with Deputy Ed Hayes, who is a veteran K9 officer with 18 years on the force. Cross-trained in both patrol work...
I'll try to make this short, I've read lots of posts on the basic firearms that everybody should own.. ,
The list can be as small as "Combat Rifle, Long Range Rifle, 12 Gauge Shotgun, and Combat Pistol" Or it could include "Compact pistol, Revolver in Magnum, rifle in .22, and pistol in .22".
In my collection I one of each and doubled up to cover some extra calibers. So I have a combat rifle in 5.56 and 7.62x39 , and my Pistols in 9mm, .45 , And as of this Monday I finally found a .357 Magnum I liked enough to purchase.

Just in case you get tired of your tried and true factory mags for your Glock 19, there are a number of fresh aftermarket offerings that are cropping up.
Augmenting their Glock 17 PMAG, Wyoming-based Magpul is now shipping their PMAG 15 GL9, a flush fit polymer body mag for the Glock 19. These have a MSRP of $15.99, which is pretty inexpensive and have a bright orange follower and removable floor plate. Gone are the Glock witness holes in the rear of the mag, replaced by a couple of mag windows on the sides.
On Magpul's social media, when a commenter called them out as to why they felt the need to make a Glock mag, the company responded: "Lighter, easier to disassemble for cleaning, $15. They work. As this line expands, the value for money will become...
