I Received Notification.....

I got this unexpected phone call on Wednesday.

The person on the other end identified themselves as local gun shop manager.

They asked me if I had received the G20 G4 that was ordered March 2013; my response was NO.

They hesitated..........then said........ITS HERE NOW!!!

FINALLY!!!!! The G4 G20 is here........the sad part is I can't get it until the middle of March due to some unexpected expenses the last couple of weeks....took my rathole money!

But it will soon be in my hands. I did get to fondle it. I noticed it came with some back-straps that appear to have a small beaver-tail.....something new or did I just miss this?

I'm excited!!

Yes, the new Gen4's come with all the extra plastic that I have no need for. But some do, so that's cool. I can't believe you had to wait almost a whole year for yours.

Well, you'll be champing at the bit for the next couple of weeks, but just think what's at the end of the tunnel. At 65, I'd never even shot a 10mm before 3 days ago, let alone owned one. It's quite an experience. As soon as the slide refinishing is done, I'll be on the way back to the range for more blasting. Of course, you know it will snow about 8" on that very day. Shooting full-power 10mm is kind of like firing an abbreviated bangalore torpedo, or maybe kind of like a mini-law-rocket. Anyway, for shooters who usually just shoot .22LR or 9mm.

I know one thing: the ballistics of the full-power 10mm Auto being very similar to the .357 Magnum, the Glock 20 Gen4 is a helluva lot more fun to shoot than the S&W Model 66. I still have my 66, but I never shoot it anymore. Now the G20, I'll be shooting that rascal.

Post your range report next month. All of us here will want to hear....................

AK

It was a Blue Label purchase....the G3s were plentiful, but the G4s were a little more scarce. The regional Glock rep told the LGS the G20 G4s were being produced once a quarter. Or at least this is the LGS story. This LGS primarily does LEO purchases and sales, not much into the retain market, so they do have credibility...not saying they are right.

Next on the list is reloading equipment.

Congratulations--I'm sure you'll be very happy. And yes, you'll almost certainly want to hand load. If you have a regular gun show in your area, you might consider picking up components from time to time, and be ready to go when the time is right for the press. Best wishes on taking delivery of the gee-too-oh.

...and that avatar looks like a turboprop P-51. Which must be about the coolest single-seat flying toy ever conceived. Were these ever actually built?

I shoot their stuff in my 357sig for the range....no issues and hotter than what you buy at Wally World. Pretty clean, too.

We'll see how it does in the ole G20. Couple of local guys have bought their stuff for the 10mm and they have had no issues.

I was looking at the brass and it appears to be mostly new Starline brass. They do use once fired brass for a lot of their loads and was expecting the same; but it looks like most of the brass is new. Gives me a head start on the reloading, for brass that is.

I used to shoot stuff from GA years ago. I think they've got a pretty good track record, and have been in business for years. Let us know how their 10mm fodder shoots, both accuracy-wise and power-wise.

I bought 500 rounds of the Canned Heat recently for my Gen 3 G20. Very nice ammo. Very accurate and somewhere around the same velocity as Armscor. I'll be ordering more from them in the future.

Well...still no G4G20 in my hands. The LGS, which I failed to use my memory bank, is closed for Spring Break; so, unless I break into the place, successfully break into the safes, get out before the neighbors or the store owner hears me (as the alarm is sounding), speed away without having some lead thrown at me and then dodge the entire city police force while they are looking looking for me, as well as half the county sheriff's....I will gratefully pick it up this week. Plus, by the time I got home, they'd all probably waiting for me!

However, I was able to take a couple of my kids to the range to compete in some lead throwing. One of my daughter's and my son shoot the ole G32 very well. My son brought a couple of friends along; however, their parents told them under no circumstance do you touch a firearm, let alone shoot it. After they reported back to their mother and father, their father called me and said the next time we go, can they go and shoot. They thought it was a bunch of rednecks shooting in an open field with a high probability of very little safety (actually I was surprised they let them even go).

Until later this week!!
