    Good job on the video. Love the dog in the back ground. Your dog is like mine it always wants to bark when I'm trying to make a video.

    Liked the video...I have a comment totally unrelated to the stippling:

    It is generally considered a bad idea to chamber a round in the way that you did with a Glock. The extractor is not designed to slam home on a round like that and you risk damaging it. There are plenty of pictures floating around on the web with people who have done it once too many times and broken the extractor. The "proper" way is to load the mag, chamber a round, pull the mag out and top it off.

    Other than that, it looks like the stippling is nicely done.

    Thanks for the tip, it seems to make sense the way you described it. I used to do it the "top it off" way but it got old quick and I never heard of slamming it home as an issue. I will take the time from now on and do it like you mentioned just in case.

    I just used duct tape. Just something that can give you a line to work with. I have heard of people using a metal ruler too and just holding it up where they want it then stippling up against the ruler. I haven't tried that way.
