    Use the Reset Luke….

    Double action has nothing to do with second strike.

    Using the Glock Magazine Loader

    The glock mag loader is great for an inexpensive, single piece of plastic, way to load magazines.

    BUT I purchased an uplula because I got a good deal on it (it was $15 still in the box at a gun show) and it is a lot easier and faster. If you ever reload while at the range and want to do it faster, I think they are worth the 20-25 bucks, they are that much better than the glock one.

    You still can't fault glock's loader... its a great design and works very well with no moving parts.

    The six o’clock hold

    I've got the ameriglo 113's and was told they were not adjustable. But I seem to shoot low and to the left predominately at 25 yds. I'm waiting on good weather to go out shooting again.

    Trigger Control for Dummies

    Thanks for the post. I recently read to pull the trigger as much as you think is possible *without* firing the gun. I do this and am surprised every time the gun fires (the trigger will eventually engage). After doing this with snap caps, I have seen an improvement. I'll try mixing the snap caps into a mag at the range. Thanks again.

    Sighting in for Dummies

    If you want to figure out how far to move the rear sight, you do this:

    Divide the distance in inches that the center of your group is off center by the distance in inches you are shooting at. Say you're off 3" at 25 yards. There are 900 inches in 25 yards. So, 3 / 900 = .00333. Now, multiply that by the sight radius of the firearm. On my Glock 19 that's 5.75", with aftermarket sights. So, .00333 x 5.75 = .01915". That's how far you need to move your sight.

    Of course sight moving tools, or in my case mallets and job-made punches, don't have vernier scales on them. So this information can't normally be applied directly to the sight. What I do is set my caliper to the result I get and just eyeball the gap to get a good idea of how far to move the sight. I also mark the starting point on both sides with a very sharp pencil so I have some idea of how far I've moved the sight. By comparing the distance between the side of the sight and the pencil mark on the slide to the gap in my caliper, I can get pretty darn good results.

    I never understood why anyone would want such a tool. We never needed anything like that when I was growing up.

    But now that I'm all done growing, and getting old, my hands enjoy the extra assist.

    And I even purchased an Upla for the wife.
