    Anyone read the new version yet?
    If so what did you think.

    Thanks,

    But then I like reading almost anything about guns and shooting. :cool:

    The write ups on some of the past and present Glock sponsored shooters was also pretty informative.

    "The Glock in Competition". I want to get it along with about a hundred other books. I haven't read it, but it was recommended to me by a shooting buddy.

    For someone who doesn’t have access to websites like http://www.brianenos.com/forums/ or http://www.GlockTalk.com and is be considering competing in shooting disciplines like Steel Challenge, IDPA, USPSA/IPSC with a Glock then that person might find this book useful. IMHO that visiting said forums will provide much more current information for a fraction of the cost.

    I read it and enjoyed it alot. I picked up a few tips and tricks that the "seasoned" guys you meet at the local matches might not tell you. I would recommend the book to any Glock owner or competitor. Easy to read and it keeps you interested.

    Ditto. Great book. I've met the author at some matches. He's a really good guy, so send him some business!

    Good book but I think my parts were worthy of a Pulitzer...well maybe not.

    Matt, you're too modest! ;)

    I've found this book to be very useful. I recommend it, not only for material on competition but for the chapter by Mark Passamaneck entitled "The Exploding Glock, Fact or Ficton?", which pretty well rips up the notion that Glock "unsupported" chambers cause Glocks to blow up. For GSSF shooters, there's good material from Bobby Carver and Robin Taylor.

    I even enjoyed the quotes from Matt! :cool:


    Edited to add: The book also lets folks know that, before Dave, there was another Glock super shooter--Armando Valdes--and he liked stock sights!

    IIRC he used CCI Blazer Aluminum cased factory ammo in the Glock too.
