Range Trip

While at the range today messing with my AR a friend was there shooting his pistols. He asked if I ever shot a Glock 43. Nope never have and never even considered one. Long story short it's not a bad little carry gun. I shot as well if not a little better than my P938, that my wife has ubscouned, as well as the P238. Anyway, here is the results from 10 yards and two mags. For what it's worth.

Great shooting Sir. A day at the range shooting anything is a good day in my book.

There is nothing wrong with a Glock. They just don't have the aesthetic appeal of some other pistols. But they are inexpensive, will function in terrible conditions and abuse. In a Saturday night shootout I would have no problem if one of my Glocks was on my side.

1911s are sexy. Glocks are not.

The real issue is, how do I get my P938 away from my lovely wife? I don't think there's much chance of that.

Nice shooting "my brother from another mother"...

The Glock 43 is the new rage and is selling like "GlokCakes"..

If I had 10 of them, 20 people would be in line to buy them...

One of these is a glock, the other is a Kimber 1911. Yes they both will do the same thing. But is it really the same?

You don't Denny, you'll just have to buy another one for yourself.

Nice shooting, I to have never shot a Glok. I have always read solid reviews about them being accurate and reliable. I will still probably never own one cause they are butt ugly. I know that beauty is supposed to be only skin deep. Ugly goes all the way to the bone!
