2nd Generation Glock 17 is my favorite handgun as well.

Anyway, just wanted to update you all!

Going to Tucson one more time (to finalize a property purchase) this week. That will be three trips in a little under two weeks.

I showed my G17 to my father in law and he wants to go shoot it out at the property I'm purchasing. I'm taking some WWB 115gr. and some Winchester Ranger 147gr.

He's an older gentleman stuck using a walker now days but he still likes his guns. I'm thinking he's going to enjoy the old workhorse.

BTW, its 78F here in SoCal today. Hope ya'all are staying warm!

Thanks for the update. It's -1 degree right now going down to -11 over night with a high of -1 tomorrow. Quite chilly near the bay window and downright bone chilling all day. Should warm up to the 20s on Wednesday. tom.

So I bought some property out there, 2 and a half acres adjecent to my father in laws. Together, that makes about 10 all total.

I made a little back stop in a natural wash and he fired my old 2nd Gen G17. He loved it. Says its probably too late for him to get used to not having a 'safety' on the gun but he agreed that for defense it pretty much beats out anything else he's ever shot.

We were using some American Arms 115gr. ball, so the recoil was very soft. Once I loaded her up with 124gr.+P GDHP and fired a few rounds he was impressed and wanted to shoot her again.

We had a great time. Next time we go out I'll try and get some pics.

Funny thing is, he really didn't like my 26, says the grip just wasn't right. But he loved the 17. He carries a Taurus snubby. Go figure.

He's so old school he won't carry a round in the chamber over the hammer. I explained the transfer bar won't allow the gun to go off without pulling the trigger...but he's set in his ways I guess.

All in all it was a great trip and I can't wait to go back in March.

First Glock

I have 10 other handguns, but just got my first Glock yesterday, a G17 Gen 4. I've have already done a detailed strip, did the "25 cent" trigger component polish job, and put in a 3.5 lb connector.

I like it.

Hey guys!

Just a quick update to tell ya that I shot an all steel challenge match in Pomona, CA this last Thursday. I used my Gen 3 G17 and she performed admirably.

I had my venerable Gen 2 there just in case but she was not needed. The old man shot well and my four man team ended in a respectable 13th out of 30 teams.

I had a great time and my only regret is I would have loved to stay for the man on man elimination matches so my G17 could have shown up a lot of S&W M&P Pro's and the Glock 34 boys.

Just love shooting the G17!

I carry a G18 mag with my in a bag when I go to work. Did you actually carry the mag on your person? I don't know how I could possibly do that...

Also, I'll be shooting another match (IDPA style law enforcement fund raiser for Baker to Vegas) on Monday. I'll let you guys know how I do!

Hey guys!

Been a while. Never did shoot that IDPA match but I've shot a couple of LE IDPA style matches since and the old 2nd Gen G17 keeps on doing great.

Qualified yesterday. I only have one more to go before retirement. Here's a pic of the G17 & G26 qual targets:

The Founders club

We KNOW the guns can shoot and the old man is still doing his part!
