I'm not sure what CCI meant either, started off kinda snippy, but I think he's well meaning and I appreciate the medical advice.. Has anyone used the heavy tungsten guide rod from GlockStore? Great idea on the extended barrel and maybe I could add the rod. I disagree with the "duty" comment, I think if you carry a weapon, you have a duty to be proficient, that's why I'm asking about the recoil reduction devices. Didn't understand the workers comp reference, but don't think it was mean spirited. Thanks very much to those with suggestions.
