    Howdy! Been reading thin to win for a couple months now and just wanted to drop a note to you all. For one thank you. I've been looking for a small .45 for daily carry for a while now, and narrowed it to a G36 or a PM45. This site has helped me spend my hard earned money on the right gun, the G36. I bought the gun in late April and now have 575 FLAWLESS rounds through it!!! Most of those are reloads, and it runs everything! +P, not a prob, light reloads for plinking, all day long. I love this gun. The 1911 has been replaced and I carry this thing everywhere. The wife has to remind me to "take off the Glock" at bed time!:rofl: I look foward to growing old with my new friend. So again guys, Thank you for helping a guy out, with the money I saved vs. the Kahr, I bought a Don Hume leather IWB holster, a Blackhawk CQB and plenty of ammo!! A win win situation!

    P.S. I know you guys like pics and will try to get some up, sorry!
     
  2. Nice to hear that you like your 36.
    Mine works perfectly too.
    It's a nice little 45 that is easy to carry.
    Do you curl your little finger under the mag?
    That's how I like shooting it because I don't care for the +1's or +0's.
    Hope it serves you well.
    I recently passed 10,000 rounds through mine. (I shoot a lot)

    I love the gun! It definately likes near max load for reloads! Started low and it shot great but didn't have enough oomph to cycle another round, and I didn't want to rack the slide for every shot so up'd the powder charge and found a great CHEAP load for it.. Anybody know about shooting lead bullets? I've had people say no way with a glock and I've had guys say they've had no problems..???? I could trim a few pennies and keep momma on good terms........ For a while! :dunno::embarassed: As for my Little finger my hand is just small enough to fit, barely. I put the Pearce +0 on my mags and really like them, but don't need em' either. I tried the +1 and hated it, made the grip to long and looked like crap, I think anyways!

    I have about 500+ loaded up with 230gr Hp berry's plated, for targets and plinking... they like a stiff load of power pistol, and are damn accurate. not much more $ than lead.
    If you really want to shoot lead, get a lone wolf barrel,

    shoot all the lead you want...

    Thanks for that. Ya, those are the same bullets I use, they're cheap and great to shoot. I use Imr Trailboss powder also!! It works great only 17.99 a pound also. It sure makes for some good cheap shootin'!
