    Question to all: is there ANY optic now that one would consider for “duty”? There was a regional SWAT team that discovered recently that there were no backup sights for a DPP(front high-.5?) equipped...

    I can barely imagine; it sounds as if you have thought many things through.
    Maybe get off the ‘net for awhile, take a few deep breaths and focus on your family situation.

    All the previous are thoughtful and very good-if I had the financial wherewithal I might get all of them! I am going through something similar with my youngest daughter-21, “out on her own”, etc....

    GJM shoots A LOT, and one would be wise to listen and consider.
    For me, with a Colt carbine, I’ve fired two mags (one 18, one 28)of my particular choice. In my situation(suburban residential, travel...

    I think 95 is respectable with a .40 from concealment. JMHO, don’t give up too much accuracy for speed; it’s almost a cliche, but there truly is a balance. Keep on shootin’!

    Grateful for the opportunity to get outside w/friends again today. Warming up here-hopefully beginning to kill the ChiCom virus!

    Reference vcdgrips comment on Gen4 mag catch into a Gen3: sorry, won’t fit. Gen4 is larger than Gen3(and reversible).

    This, what Randy Harris said and clenching the hand(s) in anticipation.
    Dry fire and “ball and dummy”, then live fire carefully.

    FWIW, I’ve seen “red”(nonfiring)Glocks and blue pieces of plastic shaped like a pistol in cadet holsters at state and city levels. I believe the Bureau and DEA use them with agents-in-training. Blue...

    We’ve kinda hijacked Mr. Cartwright’s thread, so I’ll leave with this:
    Cursory internet search for old Colt ads show a “National Match” Colt 1911 circa 1930s with a price of $45(!). Guesstimating...

    To the OP, I sympathize with your issue, as I usually carry some vintage of G19. That said, for me it’s not that big a deal. In my present circumstance, a “speed load” is not a high priority. I have...

    1) Do you find the Speedbeez functional? And,
    2) Where did you find speedstrips?

    Thanks in advance

    To the OP, what is the mission? If you want to have a lightweight gun just to “have a gun”, the 43c would seem to be it as you indicated. For me, since I have one, it’s the 317 Airlite. If I’m in my...
