    +2 extensions plus a weak spring equals trouble.

    Really, I did not notice a difference in my shooting with or without the extension. Like, just holding it, it feels better with the extension, but as far as shooting, I didn't see much of a difference as far as accuracy or anything. So I think I will be looking for at least two more normal magazines, and then run all 3 of them through the ringer this summer.

    Congrats.

    I have a 21sf and a 30sf and I would like to add the 36 but after buying 3 guns in the last 30 days I am going to have to wait a while.

    You should invest in one of these for your 36. You should be able to get one for 5 bucks & shipping.
    Scherer makes one & so does Pearce.
    Just search ebay for Glock 36 plug.

    Thanks for the tip QK. I'll pick one up when I order some magazines, as it looks like most of the big names (Brownell's, Midway, Top Gun Supply), have both.

    I look at the hole in the frame as something to not be plugged so that "crap" can fall out of the pistol instead of being trapped in it.

    To each their own.

    You going to love the Glock-36, and it may even become your permanent companion.

    Aw!

    He posted a picture and everything!

    I haven't held the 36s much, but I wouldn't turn one down. I have the other two .45s that Gaston made and I love them both dearly. Having a Springer 1911 and the "Combat Tupperware", I can't disparage any of them.

    Give the 'Ware a chance. The thing that most people like is the ease of use, lack of cleaning, and the assurance in a torrential downpour that a quick shake-out will make it ready for the safe again!
    That which does not kill us leaves us broken and bleeding...

    Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    You are aware that you can easily remove the lock in about 20 min. yourself. And it does not leave a hole in the frame.
