New Glock

Just got my first Glock. It is a Gen 3 21. I bought it used as an LEO trade in with night sights. Night sights have about 20% usable life remaining. It seems relatively unused...it has just a few butt scratches, but use has made it a little smoother than new. It was dirty so I detail stripped and cleaned it. I need to strip again and understand how it all works.

I am an avid gun owner. I think I buy them to understand the action design as much as shoot them! Just kidding! I do like a little hobby table gunsmithing and do a pretty good job IMHO. I also load most of the ammo I shoot.

The only thing which might make me kind of an outcast here is I don't like 9mm. I shoot it fine, but can't figure out why I would own one. I do respect it and suggest it for those who don't like 40. I try not to reccomend 380 either because I see too many people buying 380 as a primary CCW. I do like 32 as it can be had in guns small enough to fit in swim trunks!

I bought my Glock to learn Glock actions well, have fun shooting bowling pins, have a throw it down without caring gun and maybe some HD or field carry after it proves itself.

Next post has to be how to make the trigger usable! It is the 8+ lb NY trigger now.

I also bought a 21(Gen 3) LE trade-in from Grandview MO. it was filthy, I cleaned it up and ran 50 through it. I'm loving it and cant wait to run some more. I managed to get 100 rounds of .45 Gold Dot for $45 in a separate deal.
