    A couple months ago, I felt like I needed to switch it up a little. Decided to sell my 22 and 26 and buy a Sig 320 X-Compact and a P365. (It really wasn’t that easy to find these two specific guns during these times). After a couple weeks of scouring, I had found both. Absolutely love them. Both are comfortable to carry........(not at the same time). They feel great and shoot remarkably.
    A couple weeks after not having a Glock anymore, I really started to miss them. I used to carry the G26 until I bought a Shield. The G22 was my home protection....but didn’t shoot it much. But I still missed having a Glock. So I broke down a couple weeks ago and went on a mad hunt for a 19, which I’ve wanted for years....and finally found one. Took a couple weeks. Amazing all-around gun. Filled that void!!

    Here’s a pic of the X-Compact after a quick mod: upload_2020-9-23_19-59-6.jpeg

    Nice selection, I too have a P365, P320 XCompact, G19, and a G17. Variety is the spice of life!

    I don't feel much need for change. G22 in 2003, G43 in 2017.

    G19 is pretty hard to beat. I’m running a gen 3 I bought way back in 03 or 04? Close to 20K rds through her and she’s still perkin’ along.

    Changed out the recoil spring/rod Assembly to an aftermarket metal one at 10K rds.
    I do a detail strip about every 3K rds or so. That’s about it. Well, the weapon is on its 4th set of night sights, also.
    Thing is built like a tank. Though I love my HKs and 1911’s, the Glock 19 would be the last gun I ever part with.

    That's a significant number of rounds but not unusual with Glocks. Don

    Changing things up adds to the fun of our shooting interests. Enjoy.

    Over the 63 yrs of my shooting history, I've owned 54 different guns. I currently have 15, or will have when a rifle I have on order is delivered and that includes 2 plus the rifle in the past
    4-5 mo and I'm pleased I did. Love them all. Don

    Don,
    You bet! I’ve fired Glocks with 200K down the pipe that seemed to have plenty of life left in them?
    But for me personally, 20K is the most I have put through a centerfire handgun, though I have several others that are approaching the 10K threshold. I guess I should spend more money on ammo than on new firearms? Lol

    I've had several Glocks, none now but if I had to pick one brand that I thought would last longer, or go longer w/o serious issues, I'd go with the Glock. Don

    Based on other threads, your 1 week losses and gains supercede my entire gun ownership of 13 years + my time as a kid hunting deer and rabbits.
