Glock Forum at GlockTalk.com
I am fortunate that I have a group of guys to train with that are all serious about always getting better. The guy who started the group has a seventy five acre piece of property where we have room to train however we want.
We do all kinds of cool ****, CQB, Small unit tactics, house/room clearing, distance shooting, escape/evade/tracking, comms, TCCC. We get together twice a month, for about 7 hours a day.
I recently decided to try out a G42 to replace my Ruger LCP as a pocket pistol. I went all in and decided to sell my LCP before buying the G42. Purchased the G42 at a local store after handling it and trying it inside my pocket at the store. I was a little worried about its size at first but knew it would be easier to handle and shoot in a stressful situation. There was no spent casing with a dated envelope in the box so I called Glock and they told me it was manufactured in Nov-2016 and had all the latest updates.
I shot it for the first time this weekend and ran some el cheapo BrassMaxx and Perfecta 380 through it and fully expected issues with the first 100 rounds.
First off, thank you for everything you do. Your contributions to the police and firearms community are a great asset.
My question is regarding buckshot, and in particular, patterning and its effect on terminal ballistics. You previously wrote that a tighter patterning buckshot is ideal for maximum tissue damage. I believe that was in Stressfire II. Some time has passed since then and some more advanced shotgun loads have come onto the market. I was wondering if your opinions have at all changed since that writing.
Just wondering if anyone here has ever worn a GLOCK out. Or any other pistol, for that matter. I don't mean shot it a bit loose and it kinda wanders around a bit on paper, I mean you flat wore it out! It simply broke something and completely malfed, quit hitting primers hard enough to go bang or some other disabling malf.. I'm talking about something that could be directly attributed to wear, not manufacturer's defect.
My G26 has an erratic ejection pattern. It’s not that bad, but a couple of rounds out of 50 hit me in the face.
This is a Gen3 made in November 2011.
I have already replaced the ejector 336 with the 30274 and it hasn’t fixed the issue.
