    that feels like I am starting a weed eater. With 150 rounds through my first Glock, a 23. I am starting to get used to the trigger.

    After being used to the light triggers on my 1911, Coonan, and custom 65, pulling the trigger on my stock 23 has been tough to get used to.

    This is probably a crap group to some of you, but I am happy with it, 14 rounds from 10 yards, only two were out of the three inch bulls-eye.

    Not bad at all. Why not do a trigger job? If you are used to a nice worked trigger it would only make sense.

    I felt the same way at first man. LOL. I just got "into" Glocks this year. Before that, 1911's and Beretta 92's for me. The Glocks "staple gun" trigger does take some getting used to. But, take advatage of the trigger reset and you can shoot the glock faster than anything. A trigger pull on a 1911 can be a work of art. The Glock trigger......well you get used to them. Remember, it's all bout the reset with them. I now own a G26 and a G30 and love them both.

    That is decent shooting.

    If you have a firm purchase on shooting fundamentals, a gun with a 5.5lb trigger, or even a 7lb trigger should not be much different from shooting a gun with a 3lb trigger.

    On the range I constantly see people who are hung up on one gun over another. Me? I can shoot any well functioning handgun - the primary exception being mouse/belly guns. If you know these fundamentals inside out, it requires very little effort to transition to some other handgun platform.

    On a lighter note, :) how do you explain those powder burns? :tongueout:

    Having come to Glocks from a 1911 background I know what you mean and I now prefer them,after my first year shooting a Glock for competition they become very familiar.

    It wasn't a .40 it was a 10mm. You know how they are so powerful that they shoot flames and burn the target at 10 yards...:whistling:

    Well said. That's what my experience has been as well and I agree 100%!

    Yep, just figured out the trigger reset yesterday. I was letting the trigger out all the way, and realized I could stop at the reset, and skip what feels like two inches of slack.

    That is what I did yesterday, concentrated on the fundamentals, and stopped thinking about how goofy the trigger felt.

    It made all the difference in the world. Here is the first group I shot the day I got it, I barely kept the first mag on a 8x11 sheet of paper at 10 yards.

    That ain't powder burns, it's nat hair, cause now that I figured out this trigger I can shoot the hair off a nat's ass at 100 paces.:tongueout:

    I figured once it gets dirty enough for my first detailed cleaning, I will do the 25 cent trigger job. Until then I am going conquer the trigger in it's stock form, then when it is polished, It will be that much better.

    Pretty funny, this site will not let me fix my typo, it fixed it at the top of the thread, but not on the general glocking list.

    BTW, I always thought Piglet was the stupid one.

    It didn't take me long to embrace the trigger on my G17. I thought certainly I would need to modify it when I first bought the gun. When I got a chance to practice a bit, that desire gradually faded away. Now I love it the way it is.
