Ordered a Glock 34
« on: September 03, 2020, 11:25:46 AM »
I ordered a Glock 34 last night - with the factory Ameriglo night sights..... Hope it arrives soon.

That's it for now.. Nothing else out on the market I even want...

Once I go sight my new Beretta CX4 carbine in with the new Romeo 8 optic at the rifle range, I plan to sell that Mepro 21 optic I recently bought (but never used it). That will cover a good bit of the cost of the new Glock... Then, I'm done...

What is sad is that I just go in circles now. I've owned 3 digits worth of guns over 25+ years. That was the 3rd time I bought a CX4.

I also owned a Glock 34 before - maybe 15+ years ago.

Because of neck issues, I previously sold all my rifles. I've gotten a bit better, but not back to normal. So, 1 rifle is really all I need. And by having a 9mm carbine, I can at least shoot it at my local indoor range - instead of having to drive so far away to shoot a 5.56.... I'd go 2-3 years in between range trips with rifles sometimes.

Anyway, I know we all say "that's it" and never mean it. But, really nothing strikes my fancy any longer. Only other thing I'd love is an Ed Brown 9mm 1911. But, in years past, I've also previously owned 2 Ed Browns years ago, and a Springfield Custom Shop 1911, along with 2 Dan Wesson 1911s . I just don't feel like spending $2500-$3k on a single gun any longer.

It was shipped yesterday. Won't be in until Tuesday, due to the holiday.

And, because of covid, the FFL I use is only open from 9:30-2pm. So, it will be the end of next week before I can snag it because of my work hours, unfortunately....

I have never been a real "Glock Guy" until I got that G48 back in March. It gave me the itch. Now, I do appreciate their simplicity

I have a .357 SIG Model 33 in my safe. Son carried it as a off duty piece for several years and left it here when he went with a S&W Bodyguard as both a BUG and for off duty. Have been after him for at least five years to take it back to his place. I bought some ammo for it and have shot it a few times.Got to admit itís a potent SOB. It has a little to much recoil and is a somewhat on the heavy side for everyday CC.

I uglied both my Glocks up. I do not like the Hogue handall, but love the Hogue Jr.

I wrestled with the Hogue Jr on my Glock 19 last month - for an hour. Glock has a built in magwell at the bottom of the frame on Gen 5 models now. It was not possible to get that sucker onto the G19... I tried, and I know all the tricks. But, it would either slide off the front or the back - and I just could not even get it started. The Hogue Jr is made for smaller guns, really.

Anyway,  don't like any of the other rubber slip-ons... So, whenever the Hogue Jr doesn't work, I just use a piece of a bicycle innertube... That's what I did on both Glocks...

I even tried to get that Hogue Jr onto my APX - it wouldn't stretch that much again, and it finally ripped....

The Gen 5's got rid of that "hump" on the backstrap that older Glocks have. You should give one a try - the Gen 5s
