    Dude, 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) 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.

    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....

    You got a real good deal

    Have fun with your new friend, and let us know how the high capacity mag works. I hear that they're prone to malfunction.

    Thanks. I really do like it, tho am going to switch back to my XD for EDC, I think.


    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.

    I like it, the Gen 4 frame looks good. I recently picked up one myself, but my flavor of Kool Aid is a Gen 2 G19:
