The Leading Glock Forum and Community - GlockTalk.com
I'm in my forties and have been involved in firearms for about 20 years. I've gone through several phases with my guns wants and needs, buying and selling. Now I think I'm solidly content with what I have and will probably progressively downgrade after I retire. I'm kind of curious what the general mindset is with other firearm owners and enthusiasts here at this period of your life. Feel free to post your response with the general decade of your age and/or how long you've been into firearms.
I am sure that anyone who has bought guns over the years has bought one that was a real downer. What was the gun you bought that made you feel like you wasted your money and why?
Mine was the Sig Mosquito. I only bought it because it was on sale for $239.00, which seemed like a good price until I shot it. It was the biggest piece of junk that I have ever owned. I tried all different kinds of ammo, oils, cussing, and video watching...
Recently a guy on another websight suggested that a top load 357Sig reload can blow up a Glock if the crimp is applied too strong. All he offered for the comment was "Ask me how I know this." While I do know that the 357Sig is loaded to higher SAAMI pressures then many other of the usual auto pistol rounds, I have NEVER heard of ANY cartridge (rifle or pistol) blowing up a pistol solely due to over crimping the case. If a "blow-up" truly happened, I would presume the cause was more likely due to his reload going over the red line of the SAAMI limit to begin with.... and much less to do with an excess crimp on a round reloaded within SAAMI limits.
Besides free hand-me-downs or inheritance pieces, what's the least amount you ever spent on a gun?
Here's my cool story bros.
Just a shout to folks who have not seen any CZ's, go to the web site and check out what they offer.
I am a big CZ fan. Not the best firearms for everybody but those who like them like them a lot.
