    Dudes I Bought Me A Glock!

    Bought a Gen 4 Glock-22 Friday before last, after work at Bullseye Guns & Ammo in west Little Rock. With the Glock LE/Mil special deal, I got the pistol (that came w/three mag's) for $450, out the door. I've priced them elsewhere for $580 to $600. Also purchased a Tagua OWB holster and two boxes of .40 S&W ammo.





    Took Castiel - I name my firearms - to Shoothouse USA the next afternoon (Saturday the 26th) and put 90rnds thru him. Nice, smooth action, fairly tight groups. Fired first at 3m, then 7m. I really like Cas so far.

    Big range day the next day (Sunday, 27 Feb) w/a couple fellas from work, as well as a friend. Put Cas thru his paces as best I could, but allowed other folks to fire him more than I did that day. I then went and shot his last Sunday, as well. :)

    Nice, smooth action and trigger pull, which made it easy to get back on target. I got a bunch of the troops from work to go shooting on Sunday and put another 300rnds thru him. I also bought one of those Evile 22 Round magazines from a friend. :D

    Carried for the first time on the 1st and again every day since, every where it's legal to do so. The holster pictured is the Tagua pictured above and it's finally getting broken in. I also purchased two single magazine pouches. One is a Tagua holster w/snap closure and the other is a Bianchi w/a clip style closure. The Tagua mag pouch needs some breaking as well. The mag fits really tightly, so I put some serran wrap around the mag and stuffed it in the pouch for over night and all day. Loosened it up some. I like the Bianchi better and might try to find a dual pouch, as I prefer the thinking of having two spare mag's.


    From my range trip this last Sunday. Six of my seven 15rnd magazines and my one and only Evile 22rnd Magazine.



    I bought the 22rnder as a sort of novelty item. I don't really see much of a need for such a high-cap magazine for my own purposes, but have no problems w/others having such. I guess in a SHTF/TEOTWAWKI scenario they'd be pretty darned handy. Only issue I've had w/it is getting that last round in the danged Mag. Not a single malfunction otherwise.

    Overall, I like Castiel as both a shooter and a carry gun, but it doesn't conceal as easily as Dean, my XD-40SC. Plus, I kinda feel like I'm cheating on Dean by not carrying him....

    Not really, my G22 is named Il Duce. Then again I name my cars and computers as well, tends to make them "more responsive" and more "trouble free".
    Lifes too short to take seriously, besides, you'll never make it out alive.

    My Glock 22 was my 21th birthday present to me. Now I need to get the 22 round mags for it.

    I have two of the 31 rounders for my G27 and G22. Getting those last few rounds in is tricky. Funny thing is you can empty one in a heart beat.

    I also name my cars. Currently, my car is named Bettie, after Bettie Page. (Love that woman!)

    As for the Glock, enjoy it. It sounds like you got a great deal.

    I was surprised at the deal I got when I purchased my Taurus PT-145.

    Nice, we named our 97 ford expedition Oscar after Oscar the grouch. I love that guy almost as much as I love the cookie monster.
