    Just home from shooting my new Gen 4 G17 for the very first time.

    Born November 2011.

    Figured I'd only use the very best ammo, in order to give her the best chance at NOT failing to do something.....so popped in to J&G Sales this morning and snagged up 300 rounds of Tulammo and 300 Russian Brown Bear (both 115 grain). :rofl:

    Six hundred rounds fired, not a single failure to fire, extract or eject. None hit me in the face or head. A VERY tight little pile (2 feet X 2 feet?) approx. 4 feet to my right. Recoil was almost nonexistent! Accuracy was fine at the 15 yards I was shooting, I tossed 4 bowling pins out there and just beat the heck out of 'em for a couple of hours.

    I'm very impressed, with both the new Glock and the cheap Russian ammo! I've never fired ONE round of "that cheap Russian crap" until today, never ever. It works fine!

    Haha...excellent news! I always try to run some Monarch and Tula through my new pistols just to see how they'll react. So far, so good. The only downside for me to shoot that stuff (or Blazer ammo) is that I don't get to reclaim any brass.

    However, I'll always run a few boxes of "the good stuff" through my guns.

    Great to see that all is well, and even better to see that you had fun while doing it. You gave me some target ideas when I read about the bowling pins :)

    400 more flawless rounds down range as of today, still using ONLY steel-case Russian stuff. Starting to wonder if I got a good one?

    The Gen 4 G21 is also running like a clock, as are the GAP's, all on my poor hand loads.

    Beginning to think Glock successfully fixt the Gen 4 issues!
