Handguns and Revolvers / Re: Appreciating Glock again
« on: September 21, 2020, 01:20:47 PM »
I managed to track down another Glock 34 Gen 5. Someone on Glocktalk told me about a local shop near them that had one. When I get it, I plan to send it to Taran Tactical for some custom work  :)

FS in Bryan/College Station area (I'm not that far from Houston).

Black 9mm Walther P99 A/S Handgun. Gun comes with 6 mags. All are factory mags made for Walther by Mecgar.

The gun is striker fired, but is DA/SA - an interesting firearm design.


The gun has a Hogue Jr grip on it, but the buyer can easily remove it if you so desire.

The gun has exactly 578 rounds thru it (see exact count below). It has worked 100%!! I am only selling this gun because there is another gun I want to get.

Round count thru gun:

01-31-18 - 198 Rounds
03-04-18 - 130 Rounds
09-01-18   100 Rounds
09-03-18   150 Rounds

TOTAL   578 Rounds

Gun comes with SIX factory 15 round mags, original case, extra backstraps, TEST TARGET from factory and original manual!

3 magazines have Walther mag baseplates and 3 have Magnum Research mag baseplates. Magnum Research used to sell a clone of the P99, and Walther made the frame. The mags are exactly the same.

My price is $500!

Yea, after all this covid stuff is up, we can meet up. I haven't even eaten out anywhere since this started, and I rarely go anywhere. I have asthma, so I must be careful.

But yea, I have been making the drive from College Station to San Antonio for almost 4 years now. I am sick of it, but it is where she lives... I hope to get her to move one day. But as a piano teacher, it is hard for her to start over with zero students in a new city.

Yes, Drury on 4-10 looked like it had just opened in the new building when I went there. I drive right by it to get to my girlfriend's place.  And, they have some strange hours. They are not open as much as other gun shops. If I remember right they are closed on Mondays, and only 1/2 a day on Saturdays. Something like that. It's been a while since I was there... But, when I went the 1x, I was disappointed with the selection, and their prices were too high.

Mission Ridge. Wow. They are proud of their prices. Way high too. Although, they have no increased their prices with this gun rush. So now, they seem normal, which is sad in and of itself. And, they have an amazing selection of high end 1911s. I saw one yesterday that I wanted - for $3500!  :P

Mission Ridge costs a lot more to shoot there compared to the indoor range in College Station. I do not know if they make you buy their ammo, though. They might.... When I saw the range fee 2-3 years ago, I knew I would never shoot there. But, they have awesome stuff to look at. And, their gun rental choice is really amazing.

But, most guns are like $20-$25 to rent. Some are over $30 to rent. It costs $5 to rent a gun where I shoot at! But, Mission Ridge has an impressive selection to choose from. I've never seen such rental selections at a place before. It's like a complete gun store just for the rentals...

However, for rentals, you must use their ammo. By the time you get their ammo, the range fee and the rental fee f a gun you  wanna try... You are looking at $75 to $100, depending on what it is...

That's just crazy. I have rented many guns and saved money - seeing that I did not like it, and it prevented me from buying one... I don't think I'd pay almost $100 to try something, though. I can buy the gun, not like it and sell it - and lose less money than renting one there. But, their building is super expensive. They gotta pay for it some kinda way.

Man, I swung past a gunstore 2-3 times today in San Antonio. It is like a 30 to 60 minute wait, there are so many people outside waiting to get in. I'm not going to stand there that long just to go look and see what they have.
I will be visiting Durys guns shop in SA in a few days. Got the shipping conformation on the Ruger Ranch I ordered. Will see how it looks then.

I have been there 1x. They were very expensive and did not have that much.

I did go to that range/gun store on 1604 today. I forget the name. They have a lots of higher end 1911s.
Really thats strange Durys is a big shop usually well stock.
They just relocated a couple months ago which is good for me as they are now 5 min from my house vs over 40 before.
I am just using them as the transfer as they were in the list from Sportsmans outdoor whse so super easy.
Also John Dury is a customer of mine (private a/c owner) so its a return the favor thing.

Last time I was in the shop (old location off 37S) they were very well stocked.

I believe you are referring to Nardis for the indoor range although we have others so I may be incorrect.

I took my CHL class/test at Nardis yrs ago. Nice place but I dont care for indoor ranges. And now I shoot on my own place havent been to a pay range in about 3yrs now.

Ok, I looked up the names. Adelbridge is the store with the line I wanted to go see yesterday.

The one I did go to was Mission Ridge on 1604.

My girlfriend lives near the Drury Guns. We went in 1x last year. I don't remember them having near the stuff that Adelbridge has.

Mission Ridge always has several high end 1911s. So, those are fin to look at.

I have gotten rid of everything but 9mm guns now. Any 45 that is not a 1911 is always too big for my hands. So, I gave up years ago. I will buy a 45, and a few months later, I always see it is not going to work out due to grip size.

I have owned a LOT of 45 ACP pistols over the years - besides 1911s. The ONLY one that had LESS recoil than a fullsize, steel 1911 is the Stoeger/Beretta Cougar. It has an aluminum rail and shorter barrel. Buts somehow that rotating barrel eats up recoil.

I sold the Sig after 1-2 trips with it because of the recoi being much more than I expected

I bought a Sig 220 before - it is their DA/SA 45ACP pistol. I did not like it as much because it has much more recoil than a 1911. I was a bit surprised. But, with the higher bore axis and aluminum frame, I should not have been.

A few years ago, I looked at several Sig 1911s when Tarosean and I went a gunshow. After owning some of the higher end ones, certain things drive me nuts on cheaper 1911s. I hate triggers that rattle or wiggle back and forth. If the thumb safety doesn't have a certain feel, that nags me too...

If I got another 1911, I would want a 9mm Ed Brown. And, I don't want it that much to spend that kinda money.

I may send my Glock 34 to Taran Tactical next year to get fancied up. Earlier this year, I was at a gun store in San Antonio. I compared the high end CZ Shadows, the Walter Steel Frame and a high end Sig. I also tried a customized Glock 34. To be honest - I liked the Glock the best. I also discovered I wasn't really interested in those steel frame guns that weigh almost 50oz. My MA93 is about as heavy as I wanna go now....

But, I think on Sunday, I will sell my Centurion APX Beretta. I like my Glock 19 much more.

You really need a 1911!  :th_thicon_lol:

JK Ship!  :rocknroll2:

Sounds like a keeper.  :th_thicon_idea:

I admit that I dont have one now, but I have owned 10 or 11 in the past. My problem is that after owning some high end ones in years past, only ones $2500 or more interest me....

I just shot the G34 - That thing is awesome. It groups very well and tight. Love the longer sight radius and the low recoil from the size. I shoot it about as well as the M9A3.

I also put a few rounds thru the G19 and my APX Centurion.

I really think that if I can come across a G45, I will buy that and sell my APX. I like the Glock better

Have you looked at CDNN.com or GrabAgun.com  (both are in TX so expect to pay sales tax + your LGS fees)

gunbroker.com is another option..


Now would be the worst time looking for a specific gun... People be freakin out snapping up every gun manufactured..

Unfortunately, all the online gun dealers I have bought form in the past year are charging sales tax anyway. So, no escaping that any longer....

Handguns and Revolvers / Appreciating Glock again
« on: September 16, 2020, 11:18:46 AM »
It is interesting... Two of my very first handguns were Glocks - got my G17 back in 1993... But, I eventually moved on... Owning a few Glocks here and there over the years - but never really "liking them."

25+ years and 3 digits worth of guns later - I feel like I have owned almost everything at one point in time... Well, I picked up a Glock 48 earlier this year, and that got me appreciating Glocks again.

Then, I bought a 5th Gen G19 last month, and a 5th Gen G34 last week... Both with Ameriglo night sights....

It must be the change to the grip with the 5th Gen, because I really like the way the gun feels in the hands. And, I can appreciate the simplicity of the Glock design. Amazing that they came up with that all those years ago...

Now, I find myself wanting more   :th_thicon_idea:
