    Eh, I appreciate any links posted to in-stock 9mm; on a given day, depending upon how flush my checking account is, I have to decide if it's a "deal".. :)

    There was never anything mechanical about the gen 5 guns that required a taller front sight. I've badgered several Glock LE folks about this, and no one seems to know why the mothership started...

    Unless they're gonna drive it to my house and load my practice mags for me, that's outrageous. Ammo looks good, though.

    G43s run beautifully in the hands of competent shooters. I too have been behind the firing line while certain cops couldn't get through a qual without a malfunction... The PD I recently retired from...

    I'm kind of intrigued by this one. If they bring the weight down closer to a G42 than G43, and it's reliable, it could make a compelling around-the-house/taking out the trash pocket holster gun (the...

    Question re: California ammo laws

    My state (WA) wants desperately to be California, politically, and I understand there is an ammo bill brewing this year that would emulate CA ammo sales. I haven't been able to find text/abstract of...

    I could see this happening at the agency I just retired from, where not bringing enough resources to do the job optimally is a much greater organizational sin than not doing the job at all. Dither...

    I'm with you: 5-11, 225-230 here. Competed in strongman for many years and still train like a maniac. Nothing fits me, either. :D

    Since this whole offshoot thread began with the OP mentioning the .40 cartridge and his own speed with a G23, I have data points to contribute similar to VCD's above.

    Yeah, that's pretty much what I'm thinking.. Just a bit unnerving that if we did have a weak lot of 8-pellet, it caused problems in four different 1301s, while not being feeble enough to notice any...

    If I can't resist the itch, I don't think this will dissuade me from buying a 1301... I have stashes of 8 and 9 pellet 00, as well as some 15 pellet #1, although I do have more 8-pellet than the...

    Thanks for all the input, guys.

    Tom, that's an interesting point, now that I think of it. Whenever we'd load ammo cans for a class, we'd tear off a box flap and put it in the bottom of the can, so...

    1301 with 8-pellet Flitecontrol?

    Before my recent retirement from the PD, I was involved in testing potential new duty shotguns. Our SWAT guys had already bought several 1301s for special purposes, I'd worked with them in classes,...

    The 48 and 43X are at least as accurate as a 17/19/45 in my hands, including at speed; all they give up is mag capacity. I too am very confident with them.

    A few months ago I shot one of my best,...

    Please let us know if you have any more issues with 43X/48 mags. I think they're good to go, but they obviously lack the decades of proven reliability we have from the full double-stack Glock mags.

    I don't think there have been any revisions to the 43X/48 mags since they were introduced; does anyone know differently? I think the bad mags that I swapped out with the rep were marked 47574 with no...

    I agree with Patrick: cordless drill, bronze brush in a dry barrel. Dry removes chunks of lead faster, then I follow with solvent to finish up.
