Update:

Looks like the G17 Revolution at work has hits new heights! Tomorrow they will roll out the announcement that the G17 has been approved for ALL personnel.

Previously it was not allowed for uniformed personnel as a primary handgun. Starting tomorrow ALL personnel will be allowed to carry a G17.

I can only imagine the amount of requests that will be coming through my office...and I for one welcome it!

Today my G26 broke! Yes indeed, it broke. I think maybe the RSA is old and needs replacing. We've been shooting GDHP 124gr. +P and after 100 rounds today it stopped extracting every two or three rounds.

I took the slide apart and replaced all of the slide springs but to no avail. I didn't have an RSA handy until late this afternoon and didn't have a chance to test fire so.............

I'm carry the ol' G17 as a primary again!

The 26 has been back at Altoona for a week and they haven't called me yet to let me know whats what. Ya know...I don't feel all that uncomfortable with my old G17 and last week I was schooling a young guy on his brand new 3rd Gen G17 (pig nose and all) and my old gal just kept showing up that new 3rd genner

I've been carrying her in my Galco SSII rig but if the weather keeps getting warmer (supposed to get up to 82 tomorrow) I'm going to have to start carrying her on the hip.

We'll see how that goes.

Giddy-Up...

Thanksgiving is a few days away. I got out the 17 again today. Good carry gun for the weather (mid thirties). It's been on the cooler side for the last few weeks. tom.

Going to Tucson one more time (to finalize a property purchase) this week. That will be three trips in a little under two weeks.

I showed my G17 to my father in law and he wants to go shoot it out at the property I'm purchasing. I'm taking some WWB 115gr. and some Winchester Ranger 147gr.

He's an older gentleman stuck using a walker now days but he still likes his guns. I'm thinking he's going to enjoy the old workhorse.

BTW, its 78F here in SoCal today. Hope ya'all are staying warm!

Thanks for the update. It's -1 degree right now going down to -11 over night with a high of -1 tomorrow. Quite chilly near the bay window and downright bone chilling all day. Should warm up to the 20s on Wednesday. tom.

So I bought some property out there, 2 and a half acres adjecent to my father in laws. Together, that makes about 10 all total.

I made a little back stop in a natural wash and he fired my old 2nd Gen G17. He loved it. Says its probably too late for him to get used to not having a 'safety' on the gun but he agreed that for defense it pretty much beats out anything else he's ever shot.

We were using some American Arms 115gr. ball, so the recoil was very soft. Once I loaded her up with 124gr.+P GDHP and fired a few rounds he was impressed and wanted to shoot her again.

We had a great time. Next time we go out I'll try and get some pics.

Funny thing is, he really didn't like my 26, says the grip just wasn't right. But he loved the 17. He carries a Taurus snubby. Go figure.

He's so old school he won't carry a round in the chamber over the hammer. I explained the transfer bar won't allow the gun to go off without pulling the trigger...but he's set in his ways I guess.

All in all it was a great trip and I can't wait to go back in March.

First Glock

I have 10 other handguns, but just got my first Glock yesterday, a G17 Gen 4. I've have already done a detailed strip, did the "25 cent" trigger component polish job, and put in a 3.5 lb connector.

I like it.
