Gen 4 Glocks have changeable backstraps so that can improve the grip. In most cases you either love a Glock or hate them.

I don't like Glocks. No safety on them. If you pull the trigger they go bang. :wt*:
And I can't hit a thing with them. Course t was a 40. And I was sorta nervous about recoil. Which wasn't much.

So you don't like revolvers either?

They have a safety, its called the thing between your ears and the trigger safety. Many striker fired handguns use a safety in this fashion.

Lol hope I am not ticking anyone of. I know there are lots of die hard Glock fans. Know that I do not think ill of any of you.

I do like revolvers though. The hammer is the safety. One you cock it the safety is off.

Thread Hijacked... I think it's time to return to the original premiss.

Usually that's what I WANT to happen!Go bang when I pull the trigger :lol:


Reminds me of my first Lee Enfield. Got some POF (Pakistani ammo famous for click......bang)surplus ammo for it. I would here the firing pin hit the primer, but no immediate BANG! There would be a very short delay before the bang. Threw my aim off something awful. I don't shoot anything except my own reloads out of it now.

No such problems with any surplus 7.62X54R I've bought.
Many people say I am paranoid because I have so many guns. If I have many guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?

Sounds like the ammo was so old, it was flintlock! :lol:

Not with a double stack anything. Fingers just to darned short to get around with a good grip.


Just give me a single stack 1911 instead. Way more classic pistol, anyways.

This will prevent them from Modding or doing something to a rifle that "could" be a valuable collectors rifle. I mean who knows what is in those crates and boxes some of these sellers get.

So what do would you guys say to a bit of discussion to prevent someone from wrecking a rifle that should have been left alone.
