For me, it was Simple Green to clean my Glocks. Cheap, effective, relatively non toxic. The first few times I heard this mentioned, I dismissed it, but since I tried it, I use little else. Rinse with hot water.

Hmm..interesting thread, lets see:

1) GAP floor plates on my G26 rock!
2) Glock was discontinuing the OD model. (So I helped myself to one)
3) The Gen 4 models have some new model problems. (That will no doubt be sorted out)
4) Most folks here are cool.

I wish I did, but my wife does not like Georgia--she lived there many years ago--and we are very happy in SW Virginia.

My vote is for Ed's Public Safety of GA. Ed and Don continue to provide GSSF members and Certified Glock Armorers the best prices and service in the USA. Don and Ed also attend many GSSF matches, displaying their great merchandise and greater prices. I'll see them next at Morganton, NC on April 16.

I learned this year that I missed all of my glocks that I sold some yrs ago and really like my new g4 19. I will soon purchase a g4 23.

Heresy...you must be kidding.

MattC really likes HK instead of Glock.

Don't try my own grip reduction.

GAP floor plates are the bomb.

Best thing...all of the good people on GT.

Happy New Year everyone!

I'm following the Gen4 threads with great interest. The G30 threads, too.

This plus DannyR helping me with life and my glock's. And the friends i talk to on PM. Plus my buddy's Canyon Man,Sonny, Roger, The _Punisher and AK's longslide's are great fun projects. Butch's Blog and the time most will help anyone whom ask for it very quickly. The vast majority of member's are knowledgable and helpful and we ignore the rude arrogant one's.

Glock's are very addictive. Hopefully docs bad experience with glock is a isolated one. Plus the GT Glocker from GA Melissa. :wavey:

Plus bac is willing to help and post very nice pics. He has good taste. Has a stellar collection without arrogance which is very rare, thanks bac,

1. LOADING PLUS 1 - Load bullet in mag; insert mag; rack one in chamber; remove mag; load another bullet; reinsert. Didn't know that i could've chipped the extractor. Talking to a few other people, they didn't know either.

2. Glock barrel conversions - too many to list.

3. Good people with a wealth of knowledge. I would do research on this web page before buying ANY gun.

4. I don't know much.

Knowing when you are bored with a thread that's been beat to death, becomes repetitive, or just goes into personal attacks between two posters.

I learned that true high quality, high end 1911's are not commonly found in the local gun shop. A year ago i thought colt, springfield, kimber, etc.....were as good as it got.....boy was i wrong!

1.GEN 4 9mm's were not ready for the consumer when they hit the market.
2.Perhaps for me the only really reliable 45 auto in Glock is the 21SF.
3.OD Green was discontinued
4.I am not crazy the glock 26 might be the most accurate 9mm that glock makes.

1. That Glock folks are the best. DeeCZman, DannyR, CanyonMan (who taught me about +P .45 loads, Meliissa (lovely girl), and the list goes on. Sorry to my friends that I've missed. What's funny is that I have many more friends here than in "real life."
2. That Glocks are the best. I mean I really believe it. Reliability trumps absolutely everything else.
3. I can ask for, and receive help on this forum from people who know, in great detail, what they're talking about.
4. GlockTalk is the best reading on the planet. My public library doesn't come close to this forum.
5. There are a few here who like to argue, rather than discuss. But everyone has a bad day occasionally. And maybe his wife just beat him up...
6. I learn something here every day. When I try to help, I usually learn much more information about the subject than I post. So everybody wins. I get pleasure out of helping folks. I guess my dad taught me that.
7. It's a great new year, even though my nose took a hit today. Putting away Xmas tree and ornaments on the garage shelves and a board slipped off a shelf and caught me on the bridge of my big German nose. Cut it a bit and now wearing two butterfly bandages, but it wasn't broken...so no big deal. I look pretty weird, though.
8. Happy New Year...a great year for all of you.

My salutations to all the Mods, and also the members for making this forum what it is.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

i've learend most everyone shoots better than me based on the post and pictures. i;ve learned long ago most people ignore me, maybe becasue i don't know much, can't shoot very good, or don't post pictures. the single greates two things i've learned in a while didn't come from here. HOS dry lube is great for firearms and Harbor Freight ultrasonic cleaner for 80$ and simple green will do all or nearly all of my cleaning chores.

I've learned that if you want to shoot single-hole groups, you should shoot at styrofoam plates.

01-02-2011, 09:26
I learned the RTF2's came out from Ed's Public Safety. I grabbed as many as I could.

I also learned that a lot of people who were upset their Gen4's didn't work had not even shot them yet. :wow:

There is a member here who consistently shoots one hole groups and he uses paper plates as targets.

It is possible he has a stack at home and stands over the stack and fires one round into the stack for pictures later. :tongueout:

LMAO... well they are far superior....:supergrin:
And I like glock too, the G30 anyways. The 29 is the same pistol, so I just might get a 10mm glock instead of an Hk 45 next.

I learned everything I know about Glocks this year (admittedly not as much as alot of you, but im still learning) I learned the ins and outs of the GSSF and IDPA systems and hope to participate in both this year. Oh, I also learned that through our shop I get to go to armorer school this spring!

I just read your post and got a laugh out of it myself. Yeah, I looked pretty bad, but a week later, the BandAids are gone and I look just as before my little accident. Hard to see the scars among the wrinkles on my nose.

i learned that in SHTF scenarios dogs can be used as fantastic little beasts of burden.
i've learned that 9mm really is adequate, but .45 is better.
i've learned that Glock reliability is what makes it the best.
i've learned that we as americans must continually fight for our rights, or they degrade and become lost.
i've learned that i really am conservative, just not as uber conservative as some people.
i've become a strong proponent of open carry.
We don't use firearms for heroics, we use them as a last resort to protect life.
i've learned that i still have a long way to go until my emergency supplies are where i want and need them to be... and that'll just have to be all for right now.

I learned that The G-19 was the best Glock to get for my wife (she loves it)
I learned that Devildog fellow is a freakin genius.
I learned that getting solid info to common people can stop a juggernaut in its tracks
I learned that evrybody thinks I am clinically insane for wanting to remove 1 oz.
from the nose of my G-17
And I learned that a Comp-Tac M-Tac Minotaur is a mighty fine holster

Best and worst I learned about were the classifieds.

Awesome deals from most.

Some con artists are being tolerated and those of us who complain about them are being banned from the classifieds, while the PROVEN con artists are allowed to continue "selling".

Real eye opener.

1. Never, ever get involved in political threads on GT.

2. I like the M&P45 line more than Glock's .45 models, but still prefer Glocks in any other Caliber and think the XD line has horrendous triggers.

1) That there are a lot (about 99%) of really great people here (and a few a-holes, and if you don't agree with them, your the idiot).
2) There are experts here that don't mind helping the ignorant, and we (the ignorant) appreciate it so very much.
