    Regardless of how many times you hand-cycle the action, I would not feel the gun is through the break-in period until you have fired the prescribed 300-500 rounds. The dynamics of hand-cycling the...

    Sorry, I feel like I'm missing something in your post. What exactly are you trying to say? My first post in the thread explains my goals, and I think it's been a pretty good discussion. There's...

    This is tempting and is something I've considered. I want to experiment with carrying the G34 some more in various scenarios -- especially while driving -- to see if I can tolerate the length. It's...

    My concern isn't over the difference between the Glock triggers and a 1911 trigger -- I knew enough to expect that.

    My concern is over the difference between shooting the Gen 3 17 and all the...

    I don't mind the grip on the Gen 4 G21 and G41 at all. I will say the G41 is snappier in recoil than the G21, and I think it's because the G21 has a heavier slide. The G41, while longer, seems...

    Yeah that pretty much describes the difference I feel between the Gen 3 G17 and G34.

    I may go ahead and try a minus connector before giving up on the gun, even though I like the features of the...

    Dang, thanks for that info. I may explore that option before I give up on the Gen 3 G17 unless I just get impatient and go after another Gen 5 G17 instead.

    But I confess I really like the G34. ...

    That's an interesting suggestion, and the higher cost compared to Glocks wouldn't scare me away.

    But I am in the minority it seems, in that I have always liked the Glock grip angle. It seems...

    Yeah I am trying to put my finger on what the real difference between 9 and 45 is for me. When shooting the 9mm guns I have been very consciously working on my grip. It does not seem intuitive, but...

    Glocks (again)

    Okay so I bought all the Glocks. Now I am setting about the task of figuring which work the best for me.

    I am a long time 1911 shooter and enthusiast, and I have used a 1911 for carry and home...

    I've found that when it comes to standard production line Colts, S70 guns will generally have a slightly better trigger out of the box than S80 guns. But shoot any S80 gun built by the Colt Custom...

    The Smith & Alexander parts generally work well with a variety of 1911s. They can be custom fit, blended, and contoured or simply installed as is if function is the only criterion.

    We also have a choice as to what type of firing pin safety. The Colt Series 80 mechanism works pretty well and I would choose that over the types used by Kimber, Sig, and formerly used by S&W.

    I finally watched The Road. About the only positive thing I took from it is a reminder to not take things (community for example) for granted.

    Colt's current policy is to include a firing pin safety (Series 80) on guns intended for defensive use, and Series 70 for traditional models, plus those for target and sporting use.

    Wow, this one sold out quick! By the time I saw this it was too late.

    It's good to see continued strong interest in Tom's classes despite the current climate though.

    I had a guy pull a knife on me once and I was unarmed at the time. I hope to never ever be in that situation again. I was lucky the guy wasn't really skilled.

    If I had to pick between a 19 and a 45 I would choose the 45. But I choose a 17/34 over either.

    The Glock 19 has always felt like a squirt gun to me, probably because of the shape of the grip...
