What's my favorite Glock? Well I have a few favorites to be honest. I have been in law enforcement since 1975 and I began my career carrying a Colt Python 4 inch barrel in a Hoyt holster. Hoyt holsters were the "sierra hotel" of break front holsters in their time. As my career progressed I had...

As a former Marine Military Policeman with extensive training with civilian law enforcement agencies, I have a lot of practice with handheld firearms. I have also received a lot of training on what to look for when I enter an establishment or domicile, how to assess threats, and what to do in high-stress situations, how to handle them, how to react, etc. (I don't say this as a claim to be an expert or an authority, or for any other reason than to state my perspective.) As a civilian, I continue to try to learn as much as I can and to get as much practice as I can with my tactics and firearms. This will hopefully serve me well in the event that I have to rely on my training and skills in a situation where using my weapon is necessary. However, my wife and children do not have the benefit of my years of training and practice, and I have to consider what they would do were we to find ourselves in a situation where I have to meet a threat...
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.
