    Yeah...my Glock 22 (my very first handgun) has passed on. :crying::crying::crying:

    Had to acquire some cash and something had to go. It was a tough decision but it was my least dynamic pistol and I wasn't about to ditch my Hk USP Tactical so the 22 got the axe. Thankfully I still have all my various carry needs covered by a compilation of other pistols, including a Glock 27, but I still had to share this horrible passing with my support group, GlockTalk.

    The Gen4 I'll buy in a few months won't replace you. I'll miss ya buddy. :sadangel:

    The blood money is sitting on my desk glaring at me. The hundred dollar bills feel hot to the touch, like they were printed in hell itself.

    R.I.P. :crying: Just try and remember all the good times you had and celebrate it's life. Yes, the Gen 4 won't replace it but you can always have fun trying.

    Eh, don't sweat it. I don't put stock in any of my guns, especially my Glocks. They are as replaceable as the rounds you shoot out of it. The only guns I will not get rid of are the ones that serve a purpose or have sentimental value. And a 1911 that has a lot of time in it to make it a reliable, accurate gun.

    I've had them on for at least 6 months probably. I still have a set on my G27. I've never had any problems with them. When I first put them on I noticed that a couple spots weren't sticking exactly right so I took a little tiny dab of super glue and it solved the problem. Still easy as pie to take off still if needed.

    If you want you can send me the money and I'll bless and perform an exorcism on the money. I'll even do it free of charge!:whistling:

    Meh, I've got a spare G22 3rd Gen. If it hurts too badly, PM me for a replacement.
