Hi Bog's

I have two questions
1. My hands are small what glock 9mm model can you recommend? Yesterday at North star i tried ny friend full size usp 9mm and i can't fully grip it.

2. My question is about reload bullets is it legal to make your own reloads. I've seen shells that are for sale how about the tips and powder? Is it cheaper than buying reloads from shooting range. Normally when you bring your own bullets they would charge corkage fee.

thanks

You might want to try handling first the G19 or G19 at the store or any gun range that have the Glock. Actually, you don't really have to fully grip the pistol. As long as you're comfortable shooting it then you're fine.

Last time I was there you need to register your reloader, but who does? It's a lot cheaper rolling your own but in the long run there is really no savings because you tend to shoot more. The good part is you have lots of ammo to practice with. Armscor doesn't charge corkage.

If you shoot alot then getting a reloader will save money for you to be able to shoot even more. ;f

thanks for the replys, I only ask if its legal to reload because my friend inherited a reloader form his father in-law. My other question is where can he buy the tips and powder and also anybody willing to teach us how to reloads. Thank again.

Wp22, try handling several models of Glock before deciding on your purchase. try other brands too. Shooting range that charge you more for your own ammo? Baka pati basyo mo ayaw nilang pulutin mo. Its called hanap buhay.

The thing about reloading your own is that you can tune the ammo to your gun for factors such as feeding reliability, accuracy, ejection consistency, minimize barrel leading, etc. Reloading is easy help is plenty. Supplies? Legalities? Open question.

You can buy the bullets or the heads, as we call it there at Strong Hand, True Weight and Final or First Option??? Yung nasa Bulacan Street, QC...front of SM North Edsa. They also have powder and don't forget the primers.

For small hands, a G19 does not improve anything, as the reach to the trigger is the same as for the G17/22/23/24/26/27 etc. The only difference is the length of the grip, which doens't matter a whole lot.

The only Glock that is actually easier for people with small hands and/or short fingers is the G36, the single stack .45.

Glocks in general are not ideal for people with short fingers. Those of us who can't reach the Glock trigger very well will do much better with a 1911 of some variety, or some other single stack gun like a SiG Sauer P225 or P239; Smith & Wesson 39, 3913/3914, 909, or 908; Kahr; etc.

What kind /brand of reloader do you have? Try to research and learn as much as possible about the reloader you have from the net. If you can get a reloading manual that would help as well. Here's a link to the RCBS website that will intro you to handloading: click here (http://www.rcbs.com/default.asp?menu=1&s1=5&s2=12).

just try it,

handle and point a 1911 with a flat MSH, short trigger, and slimline grips, you'll fall in love.
