The local shooting complex added a USPSA venue and it looked like fun. So...I had to try with my old 1911's. Did poorly. Bought a G34 and what a difference. Don't get me wrong, John Browning made one of the finest pistols known to man for it's time. On the other hand, the Glock is perfect for the 21st century. I put a Lone Wolf Barrel in it and am shooting 130 gr. LFN with 5.0 grains of Unique. I can't miss. I had a G30 some years ago but couldn't shoot more than a mag full of lead bullets before the **it hit the fan. Everything is peachy now. I'm proud to shoot a Glock and participate in what looks like a very informative forum.
