    Took out the new Gen3 G19 today ran 300 rounds at the paper with 6 inch groups at 7 yds only took 3 or 4 casings to the top of the head so I'm not too upset at all with that!!!

    Cool beans alot of people get in the face/head brass because of the range set up. The fired brass conects with the range lane partition walls and bounces back onto you.

    From the photo of the bald head the brass would feel pretty hot.

    Not to be a naysayer but....

    6" at seven yard is an indication of a SEVERE problem with the pistol.

    It would seem prudent to get it checked out.

    With a group like that, it will not stay on a man sized target at only 25 yards.

    The Glocks are capable of much better shooting than this.

    Don't think there is anything wrong with the pistol. Just needs to practice more.

    Hey I noticed you have a set of Howard Leight Impacts (the 50 dollar ones, right?).

    How do you like them?

    Any complaints?

    I was about to order a pair yesterday but was hesitant because of some of the reviews.

    I've had my Howard Leight muffs for going on 3 years now. I love them to death! Haven't had to replace the original battery, they are comfortable, and they work in the rain.

    Ever stop and think it might be the Indian, and not the arrow?

    Sorry for the hijack, but just wanted to let you know that I have been using the Howard Leights for about a week and they're really nice and comfy once you have a snug fit. Fold up really small too, does not take up any space in the range bag. Plus once you adjust the electronic thingamajig properly, you actually can hear every conversation around you without hearing the gunshots. Very cool!

    Again, very sorry for the hijack. Hope the OP did not mind.

    I would say order them extremely comfortable and they work great its nice to actually hear people talk that youre shooting with and not hear the bang.

    Its ok banger figured someone would have something negative to say there always is. As far as a problem with the pistol maybe in your PERECT SHOOTING HANDS it would be but in mine thats pretty good for me and If I ever have to shoot anything at 25 yards I probably have time to run away and shouldnt be shooting at it to begin with. Im not a competition shooter nor do i ever plan to but my 6" group will be plenty good to protect myself or my family. Keep up the perfect shooting!!!

    Why soooo defensive?

    I was concerned about a defect in the pistol.

    Be aware that 7 yards is 21 feet!

    Consider, a Baseball pitcher throws a round sphere just over 66 ft. if he does not get an accuracy similar to what you perform with a firearm, the fans shout for him to be benched.

    Simply owning a firearm does NOT make one prepared!

    Lastly, you are the one who got on the Internet and in effect BRAGGED about your abilities!

    Further, 6" at seven yards means that at a normal "living room" distance, you stand a good chance of missing your target and sending a bullet flying into the great unknown, killing or wounding God knows who.

    Soooo, now the question do YOU feel this is prudent?

    651-

    Looks like you have all the frame sizes nicely represented there on the bench, and kudos to the photographer for catching the fireball!

    Enjoy the new 9X19!

    ***

    They are nice, but they are big. Thankfully, my big old coconut fits in there just nicely enough to get a good fit. I also have some other cans from them, and they reduce the SPL a lot more, but like 651 said, it is nice to be able to hear people talking to you, like during a cease fire when others are setting up/retrieving targets (I shoot outdoors mainly...)

    Dont worry baner there is nothing wrong with the gun. And I wasnt being defensive just a smart A** is all. And I wasnt at the range trying to hone in my skills I was just there with some friends cutting paper and braking in my new G19. Ill make sure to give you a personal range report when I hit the range friday to do some real shooting:whistling:

    @ Beanie The 26 is my girlfriends the 19 mine and the 17 was a guys that we met at the range. It was pretty cool to have them all there though. And the fireball pic was taken by my girlfriend with my cell phone I think she did a good job with that too!!

    As much as I love the G19 platform it should not be beaning you in the head. I agree it's possible for various reasons to once in a Blue Moon to have an occasional errant round do so. 3-4 in one range session is too much. The guns are capable of great accuracy by the way. Just like everything else. Time and practice. Enjoy your new pistol.
