Well it certainly looks like the accuracy potential is there Tangle. At least mechanical accuracy, lol.
hey, thanks for the test. What are your over all thoughts on the new gun? Do you think the trigger will wear in? Any issues with it?
Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

Overall, I like it. The grip change is subtle but enough to make a difference in a good way. I couldn't get over how soft it shot. But, I think the soft recoil and the heavy trigger go back to what I had just run 300 rounds through in the last three days. I've been shooting my Kimber Pro Carry. It has a trigger pull just a touch under 3.25 lbs. It's also light and shooting a 230 gn bullet, so it does move when you shoot it.

I had limited time because the place was starting to fill up, but I think the trigger was about what it should be, and I was just used to a true 3.25 lb trigger - maybe. I did pop the slide and check to see if it had the "+" connector in it; it did not. When I dry fired it about a half dozen times it seemed about what I would expect. And I think as Glocks are shot, they do polish in a bit and will get a little smoother and a little lighter to some degree.
I'm too young to be this old!
Getting old isn't good for you!
