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...

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...
My Joker of a G22, all gilled up and aggressively textured.
In 2009, Glock came out with an updated version of their gun that featured better ergonomics named the “Rough Texture Finish, Version 2," or commonly just called RTF2, the topic of which has been a long and well talked about source of debate here among the forum.
Besides the texture, along the slide, a set of scalloped cutouts replaced the strait up and down slide serrations that had been a facet of the Glock since its introduction in the 1980s. These cutouts were shaped like thumbnails and were instantly but dubbed ‘fish gills’ by those who encountered them.
Besides the slide, the entire lower frame grip surface area was stippled in fine lines. These lines worked like non-skid and gave the gun an almost instant tackiness when picked up, eliminating complaints from those who contended the Glock sometimes got slippery...
I'll try to make this short, I've read lots of posts on the basic firearms that everybody should own.. ,
The list can be as small as "Combat Rifle, Long Range Rifle, 12 Gauge Shotgun, and Combat Pistol" Or it could include "Compact pistol, Revolver in Magnum, rifle in .22, and pistol in .22".
In my collection I one of each and doubled up to cover some extra calibers. So I have a combat rifle in 5.56 and 7.62x39 , and my Pistols in 9mm, .45 , And as of this Monday I finally found a .357 Magnum I liked enough to purchase.
