"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
The Glock model 35 is an excellent weapon. I'm not surprised.
It's long slide, equal balance and .40 caliber is like the basic ingredients of accuracy.
Good for him.
One point overlooked is the reliability of the tool used. I'm a very new USPSA shooter (so new I'm still "unrated") shooting in Production and have managed to best quite a few of the folks shooting Unlimited "race guns" simply because they jammed or had a mag failure. Part of this has been the cold weather and dust. Those fancy tight tolerance race guns don't do well in the snow. So it has to be a combination of skill and tools. The hammer has to not break and you have to be able to hit the nail... My tool always works but I still miss the nail alot. And yes - I'm using a Glock - an OLD Gen 1 G17... Next match will be a challenge as I've upgraded to a lightly worked G 34.
Interesting that you're using a G-17 gen 1, but are you sure it'd not a gen 2? The gen 1 and gen 2 look very similar, neither have finger grooves or rails. It may be a gen 1, I was just curious.
I gave away a G-19 gen 2; I'd love to have it back or another gen 2 G-19; they're kinda hard to come by.
i have alot of power tools. routers, table saws, planars, you name it. theyre very expensive and were the best i could afford, including saving up for the ones i wanted. i make decent crap.
my grandfather had no power tools. half of his tools, he made himself. he made fine, fine furniture.
draw your own conclusion. the handgun is simply the launching pad.
The Glock 35 always worked for me in competition. It is not a tack driver but its quick. Steve48
