The Glock pistol has been around for over 30 years now and has taken the world by storm in that time. I remember when the Glock first arrived and I thought “that is an ugly pistol”. Well it still isn’t the prettiest but there is no doubt about the reliability of the pistol, it’s ugly but it...

Friday I bought a gen4 G19. Went to the range this evening to start the break in process. Planned to do most of my range work with my EDC G19 gen3, mainly because of the sight upgrades and I hate stock glock sights which are on the gen4. I had two things happen on the range today that I've never experienced. The first is that after approximately 4000 rounds in the gen3, I had my first ever failure of any kind. Actually had two failure to ejects within 300 rounds. Same ammo that I've used the past 1000 rounds.
Picked up a Gen 3 G34 last week. Finally got to play with it today. What a sweet shooter. Smooth and accurate. I was curious what kind of velocities it would generate, so I took a variety of ammo along. Here's the results. All averages for 10 shot strings.
WWB 115gr 1158fps, HST 124gr +P 1258fps, UW 124gr +P+ GD 1361fps, UW 147gr +P+ GD 1157fps, 124gr Powerbond plated over 6.4gr of PP 1249fps, 147gr XTP over 5.7gr WSF 1146fps.
Cheaped out and bought some of this today for 25 cents a round. Saw that it was FMJ and didn't bother to open the box and take a look. No Jacket??? The internets show a copper jacketed bullet but there isn't any on the two boxes I bought. The bullets feel rather hard and not lead like. Anyone have any experience with this ammo. Would you or do you shoot it your glock 45? Thanks
Sometimes for mystifying reasons I can't fully explain why a gun strikes my fancy. I've quit buying firearms but couldn't resist this little Browning. Yes the .25acp is the equivalent of a .22LR when fired from a short barrel and considered, by many, as antiquated for self defense purposes.
The "Baby" is a Belgium made blowback operated SA that is striker fired and carries six rounds. The mag does not hold the slide open on empty and the release is on the heel. There is a left side manual safety and the gun will not function without inserting a mag. This particular gun was produced in 1968 and this design was first manufactured by FN in 1931 through 1979.
I'm not likely to carry this, but the 49 year old gun still fires, operates well and it's fun to shoot for such a tiny pistol.
If the finger grooves/no finger grooves is such a big issue, would it be that hard for Glock to do something about that?
I realize Glock works in mysterious ways, but still.
