    45ACP Perfection? The Glock 21 ... On Glock to Rule Them ALL

    Ask me today what my favorite Glock is and I'll tell you it is the Glock 21. I've owned and used the G22, the G30, the G17, G19, G26 but I keep returning to the G21 as the Glock, for me, which is Glock Perfection.

    Here's a video of the G21 in action. I was not having the best of days, but...well, see for yourself..still pretty pleased. Getting decent "kill shots" in from 42 yards out on a human torso target, three shots hitting within a couple inches of one another is sure good enough for me.

    I know how you feel. The Glock 21SF was my last duty weapon before I retired. It was the first handgun I have ever used that truely felt like an extension of my arm. Soon after I retired I bought one of my own!

  5. Great video, it look like that at 25 yds out you did pretty good and I wouldn't want to be on the other end and at 42 yds you did good, I don't think that I could have done that good but I'm working on it. Thanks for sharing.

    out of curiosity, why would anyone feel the need to be a proficient shooter at over 125 feet?

    I know that the only reason that I carry and shoot is for self protection and I strive for excellence at 25 feet and closer.
    at 25 to 50 feet it is important to be able to hit the target as well but I don't place too much emphasis on it.
    I think that at greater distances I would have a very good chance of being able to break away from a confrontation and at 100 and more feet I just can't see any justification for shooting at anyone, it would be wiser to get out of Dodge.
    Just my opinions and curiosities.

    The need shoot that far is rare but there have been cases of CCW holders keeping rifle men from shooting atop a small building until police arrived. Would keep someone with a rifle suppressed

    what is it that I just never know? that I might play OK Corral with a bunch of thugs? I'm just guessing but IMHO 100+ feet is plenty far away to allow for a quick bug out.
    if I was defending a position, 100+ feet the handgun is not the weapon of choice

    And if you're defending a position but all you have available/on your person is a handgun? Being able to place accurate fire at a long range with a handgun may surprise and demoralize your rifle armed attacker. Not likely but just saying, everything has its place. If people want to practice at long range surely that can only improve their shooting at close range too.
