As a core part of my self-directed training, I spend a decent amount of time in the range (carefully) slinging bullets downrange; as a result, I work through a lot of ammo, especially 9mm. This comes from a few factors:
1) I strongly believe in the need for regular training (both supervised...

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.
Interesting that he mentions that the trigger guard is not undercut as far as he can tell. I wonder where that rumor came from?...
