This thread has me rolling in the floor...
I used to go on some "interesting" TDY trips with a fella that had a "reputation" as a "pickup man" when it came to the local lovelies. No matter where we travelled, he always seemed to have a "friend" accompany him down for breakfast the next morning.
Finally, curiosity got the best of us one day and we asked him his secret to success...He smiled, and said "whenever you walk into the local bar, pub, restaurant, shopping mall, whereever we might be, and we "eye" the local talent...I always "go ugly early" ...
Everytime I touch my Glock19, I thank him for imparting that bit of guidance to me..."Go Ugly Early - Get a Glock and never look back!!"
Zonker's sig line says it best. I have owned Kimbers, and still have a couple of them. I do carry them from time to time, and I do see them as beautiful (and effective) pistols. But I find myself carrying one of my Glocks much more often than not. There is something "beautiful" in a Glock's simplicity and reliability.
Everyone needs a block.... err I mean brick...... err I mean glock.
I have a 9mm Springfield EMP. It's a thing of beauty and I like shooting it but I don't carry it much. I carry my Glock 19 almost exclusively. As was noted before, there is something to said for simplicity and reliability.
Y'all do realize that there are various pretty guns that are just as effective as Glocks.
First, you lose the ability to use the longer magazine in the pistol it was intended for.
Second, if the adapter comes loose and slides up the mag, you might not be able to insert it into the pistol properly.
Third, they make the magazine bulkier to carry.
I can fire my smaller Glocks just fine with their larger cousins' magazines with no issues whatsoever, sans adapters.
KISS, and save your money. You don't need those things. :nono:
I too just got a G27. I love the gun, I mean love it. I found the pinky extenders nice because you can get up to two additional rounds and that makes it hold 12 rounds of 180gr madness in a compact package, but they don't help me in the control department. In fact, I find I have better control with the flush fit mag.
Best part about carrying my Glock over my Kimber (besides size, weight, and capacity) is that if I drop it, bang it, or even get it taken after a shooting, I dont really care. It is truly a very utilitarian pistol! For concealed carry, it is one of the best IMO. And just be ready, it takes some time to get accuracy out of it.
40 and 50 yards are no problem.:smile:
