    LMAO... well they are far superior....:supergrin:
    And I like glock too, the G30 anyways. The 29 is the same pistol, so I just might get a 10mm glock instead of an Hk 45 next.

    I learned everything I know about Glocks this year (admittedly not as much as alot of you, but im still learning) I learned the ins and outs of the GSSF and IDPA systems and hope to participate in both this year. Oh, I also learned that through our shop I get to go to armorer school this spring!

    PRESS the trigger straight back. Not a squeezing motion.

    I have a difficult time understanding the difference between pressing and not squeezing. Is it that you just do it slower?

    I just read your post and got a laugh out of it myself. Yeah, I looked pretty bad, but a week later, the BandAids are gone and I look just as before my little accident. Hard to see the scars among the wrinkles on my nose.

    i learned that in SHTF scenarios dogs can be used as fantastic little beasts of burden.
    i've learned that 9mm really is adequate, but .45 is better.
    i've learned that Glock reliability is what makes it the best.
    i've learned that we as americans must continually fight for our rights, or they degrade and become lost.
    i've learned that i really am conservative, just not as uber conservative as some people.
    i've become a strong proponent of open carry.
    We don't use firearms for heroics, we use them as a last resort to protect life.
    i've learned that i still have a long way to go until my emergency supplies are where i want and need them to be... and that'll just have to be all for right now.

    Man, that really is handy. I was doing a good bit of fumbling earlier with my AA kit, wish I would have seen this sooner.

    I learned that The G-19 was the best Glock to get for my wife (she loves it)
    I learned that Devildog fellow is a freakin genius.
    I learned that getting solid info to common people can stop a juggernaut in its tracks
    I learned that evrybody thinks I am clinically insane for wanting to remove 1 oz.
    from the nose of my G-17
    And I learned that a Comp-Tac M-Tac Minotaur is a mighty fine holster

    Best and worst I learned about were the classifieds.

    Awesome deals from most.

    Some con artists are being tolerated and those of us who complain about them are being banned from the classifieds, while the PROVEN con artists are allowed to continue "selling".

    Real eye opener.

    1. Never, ever get involved in political threads on GT.

    2. I like the M&P45 line more than Glock's .45 models, but still prefer Glocks in any other Caliber and think the XD line has horrendous triggers.

    For me it was that I didn't want a G19 Gen 4 based on all of the bad reports on this site! Too many dissatisfied customers!
