Since purchasing a Glock 19 Gen 3 back in 2008, I've read articles and watched videos on modifications and accessories but none intrigued me more than the 25 Cent Trigger Job. It was only last year that I finally did it because I had almost everything needed to perform it and because it...

I’m one of those guys. You know, the ones who could be heard saying, “Those plastic, ugly things? I could never carry one. They have no personality and are butt-ugly!” You read right; I was literally basing my opinion of a firearm solely on its looks. I recognized the reputation of safety and reliability, but I allowed my narrow-mindedness in regards to firearm aesthetics to cloud my judgment when it came to considering Glocks for purchase. Then, one day, I decided to finally get my concealed handgun license, and while searching for good carry weapons, a friend told me to seriously consider Glock. As I respect this friend’s opinion immensely, I did so. What I found was both perception-shattering and life changing.
As you may have read in this article, my background as a U.S. Marine was with the M1911A1 and the M9. I received lengthy training with both of these...
After reading this article, it seems that Stag Arms lowers and AR's may be collector's items.
Growing up in the 70’s was a lot of fun, not only because we had The Brady Bunch and Wonder Woman on TV, but because as a 10 year old, my parents could give a 10 year-old a rifle and some ammo and send him out into the forest to shoot. Sure, it was a Marlin .22, but that was still a pretty serious firearm for a 10 year old.
I lived in a suburb of Chicago called Bolingbrook, and we lived right next to a large forest. My mother, a stay-at-home mom, would take me to K-Mart and pick up the bricks of .22 ammo for me and send me out into the forest. She rationed me at a brick a week, but sometimes I shot them all up sooner. She’d give me the crinkly face of an annoyed mother, but she’d always pick up her purse and say, “Let’s go” as we headed out the door to the Ford Pinto (with wood panel sides!) and over to the K-Mart.
What was so different back then that allowed my parents to trust a 10 year-old with a firearm and to even encourage it?...
I decided to put this video together to help those with the Glock 43. There are some small differences, as most of you may know, and I point those out.
I know there are already a few other Glock 43 detail strip videos; I'm a training developer and tech writer (who also does voice work for lots of training at Fortune 100 companies; you might recognize my voice!) and I wanted to combine my profession with my passion. This is in no way indicative of the work I put weeks or months into, but I think it gets the job done. I did it all in one take, so it's not nearly as polished as the stuff the pays the bills.
I finally decided to get a new light for my nightstand pistol, and went with the XC1. It arrived today, and I quickly took off the old M3 light and mounted the XC1. While I will miss the ability to quickly remove or add the M3, the light that the XC1 makes is far superior. No hot spots and very even, nice, clear light. The form factor is great; it feels lighter than the M3 did. Also, the switches are very similar (at least for the momentary switch) to the M3, so I am already used to that. I ordered a holster for it and it should arrive this week. I'm looking forward to getting in some range time with this combination to see how it holds up.
I also added Mepros to the pistol Saturday night. They don't seem to be bright to me as my Trijicons were on my 92FS when it was new, but still pretty good in low/no light. Between the Mepros and the XC1, I think I have a good, solid CCW/nightstand pistol.
As for the light itself, the unit has an aluminum body and metal clasps and a metal...
