    i'm currently on the market for the "ghost rocket 3.5" for glock and iwb holster made of plastic/kydex. all other 3.5 connectors seen so far do not have the features i'm looking for. been through most known gun shops / custom gun shops without luck. holster is currently out of stock - not for long i hope.

    other accessories / enhancements:

    practice trigger - automatic reset of trigger.
    trigger block - external "add-on" safety
    rear sight removal tool - if it's expensive, might as well
    improvise. any ideas?
    compensators and threaded barrel - maybe in the future.

    butt plug, night sights, lasers, mag-well, ny trigger... are widely available here in manila. :) others seem to be available only on the internet.

    Ah! The excitement of a brand new pistol purchase. I'd recommend shooting the pistol a lot before buying any accessories which you won't need later on.

    - trigger block = could be a good device, still you can just develop the habit of keepipng your finger off the trigger
    - rear sight removal tool = if you got a friend who owns one, it will be cheaper or just visit your friendly gunsmith and pay him for the one time service which is cheaper too
    - compensators = if you are using them, you will definitely have the right ammo combination, tried it once and it works mostly with major loads
    - butt plugs are optional some use them and some don't. Question is, who cares about the hole in the grip?
    - lasers = they are nice to have and gives a high-tech look but it also changes the internal of the Glock which i don't need

    i recommend better sights (the stock ones are plastic and wear easily if you do a lot of holstering) and more practice ammo. if using reloads, just buy an aftermarket barrel.

    As infinitecolt wrote: "if using reloads, just buy an aftermarket barrel."

    I had bought one (aftermarket barrel) from - I think it was eye cutter - since I shoot for relaxation and I couldn't relax knowing I was gumming up my Glock's polygonal barrel using lead-bullet reloads.

    Alternatively, get used to having to clean really well really often, or use much more expensive FMJ exclusively.

    got it! thanks! i've just stripped & cleaned my glock... you guys were right - it was managable. 30 min for the mags and 2 1/2 hrs for the pistol. just took my time to look through all the parts and clean out all the oil/filings from the firing pin, breech, rail... =) broke 3 toothpicks though. i'll stick to the barbecue stick!

    Dude, just a word of advice, don't ever tell your wife or GF about you spending two and a half hours fondling your gun. ;);f
