I learned that true high quality, high end 1911's are not commonly found in the local gun shop. A year ago i thought colt, springfield, kimber, etc.....were as good as it got.....boy was i wrong!

1.GEN 4 9mm's were not ready for the consumer when they hit the market.
2.Perhaps for me the only really reliable 45 auto in Glock is the 21SF.
3.OD Green was discontinued
4.I am not crazy the glock 26 might be the most accurate 9mm that glock makes.

1. That Glock folks are the best. DeeCZman, DannyR, CanyonMan (who taught me about +P .45 loads, Meliissa (lovely girl), and the list goes on. Sorry to my friends that I've missed. What's funny is that I have many more friends here than in "real life."
2. That Glocks are the best. I mean I really believe it. Reliability trumps absolutely everything else.
3. I can ask for, and receive help on this forum from people who know, in great detail, what they're talking about.
4. GlockTalk is the best reading on the planet. My public library doesn't come close to this forum.
5. There are a few here who like to argue, rather than discuss. But everyone has a bad day occasionally. And maybe his wife just beat him up...
6. I learn something here every day. When I try to help, I usually learn much more information about the subject than I post. So everybody wins. I get pleasure out of helping folks. I guess my dad taught me that.
7. It's a great new year, even though my nose took a hit today. Putting away Xmas tree and ornaments on the garage shelves and a board slipped off a shelf and caught me on the bridge of my big German nose. Cut it a bit and now wearing two butterfly bandages, but it wasn't broken...so no big deal. I look pretty weird, though.
8. Happy New Year...a great year for all of you.

I have not been here that long, but I have noticed that "GLOCK TALK" is Fantastic!
My salutations to all the Mods, and also the members for making this forum what it is.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

I've learned more about 1911s in the last 6 months than in my previous 33 yrs. Thanks everyone for all their advice.

i've learend most everyone shoots better than me based on the post and pictures. i;ve learned long ago most people ignore me, maybe becasue i don't know much, can't shoot very good, or don't post pictures. the single greates two things i've learned in a while didn't come from here. HOS dry lube is great for firearms and Harbor Freight ultrasonic cleaner for 80$ and simple green will do all or nearly all of my cleaning chores.

I've learned that if you want to shoot single-hole groups, you should shoot at styrofoam plates.

I learned the RTF2's came out from Ed's Public Safety. I grabbed as many as I could.

I also learned that a lot of people who were upset their Gen4's didn't work had not even shot them yet.

PRESS the trigger straight back. Not a squeezing motion.

There is a member here who consistently shoots one hole groups and he uses paper plates as targets.

It is possible he has a stack at home and stands over the stack and fires one round into the stack for pictures later.
