    It's actually fun to mix it up with dummy rounds. It keeps you on edge and focused on staying smooth. I'll have to post a new range report once I get more time in. If the surf isn't up this weekend I may hit the range.

    Thank again for the tips!

    Butch, thanks for the shooting tips. I used the pad of my finger (vs the joint) and practiced with dummy rounds mixed in with live ammo on my last range trip and my accuracy noticably improved. Cheers!

    Butch what is the picture in your post? It looks to be a cystal trophy of some type with a Glock pistol etched. I have been trying to get a picture to work on my post. It says the pic is there but i have not seen it show up on my post. Its just a pict of my 10th Ann. GSSF 17 no big deal just thought it would look neat to have a picture.

How does a Glock work?

Very well!

After putting a loaded magazine in the magazine well, you let the slide slam shut to push a round out of the magazine and into the chamber. At the same time the rear edge of the trigger bar ‘grabs’ the firing pin lug


and pulls the firing pin part of the way back to a ‘partially cocked’ position.

GAPophobia

According to *Butch's* dictionary.....

GAPophobia:
An innate fear of the use by anyone of the .45 GAP cartridge in preference to the .45 ACP cartridge.

GAPophobes always seem to want to argue about how there is no purpose for the .45 GAP cartridge, no reason for it to exist. No amount of bandwidth wastage on the subject is too much!

They completely and callously disregard the fact that some people don't have hands that...

Put the mag loader over the top of the magazine tube and push it all the way down to make room for the next cartridge.



While holding the loading tool down, start the round into the mag by pushing it back against the mag...

A lot of Glock owners (and some ‘would be’ Glock owners), are afraid that the trigger spring on their Glock will break and then the gun won’t work. Not true! You just need to know how to work it!

Some Glockers will go so far as to replace the coil trigger spring with a New York trigger spring to insure that they don’t have a breakage. This does work OK, but it also makes the trigger pull a whole lot heavier, and it’s really not needed.

Most of the time when a coil trigger...

Glock makes three connectors and three trigger springs: (See edit below for newer info)




Use of the coil spring with any of the three connectors gives a trigger break weight of approximately the weight listed for the connector used. Changes in the power of springs...
