    Ready for duty.

    Spent an hour cleaning some guns tonight, four polymer frames and one snubbie. I didn't shoot them today, they weren't dirty, I just wanted to spend some time with them...
    So here's two pictures of my tools, just needing their magazines to be fully ready for duty.

    Left to right - Glock 34, XD45 Tactical, Taurus 24/7 .40, XD9 SC.

    Now you've gotten them done - drop over to my zone and have a go at mine!

    Just allow for about 2 days to do the whole lot

    Really must stop reloading tho - and run thru some gun cleaning - one or two have been a bit neglected!

    Two days?
    I can do five handguns per hour, even if cruddy.
    You have a few more than the norm there Chris...

    I didn't clean the Walther or the Kel-Tec, didn't bother with the Browning or the NAA, didn't even think of doing the old revolvers, left out the rifles and shotgun...

    But even if I had I would've had change out of four hours.

    I might be a little weird, even OCD maybe, but I almost enjoy cleaning my firearms as much as shooting them. But that might be because the cost of ammo these days.

    My Chief held a CC class yesterday for some of our "office" employees, and I was given the duty of cleaning the weapons - 3 Glock 22s. Upon cleaning them (I ALWAYS take them down to the bare plastic) I discovered that on all three of them, the ejector was quite short in contrast to the ejector on MY Glock 22 and MY Glock 23...keep in mind, these are ALL 2nd Generation Glocks - just like mine. Normally, I would think that they needed replaced, but it was kind of a coincidence that ALL THREE were exactly the same. I really don't think that these 3 G22s have any more miles on them than MINE does - probably less! These three weapons stay locked up in my Chief's office - mine gets used quite often. What do you guys think...should they be replaced?

    I would. Anything that someone's life is going to depend on, I wouldn't take any chances.
    It would be interesting to pull them all(yours included) and set them side-by-side.

    Any glock armorers out there got any ideas on this one?

    Yeah, I plan on showing MINE to the Chief today in comparison to the three others. Maybe he'll order them...of course, he will give ME the PO number and I will order them...oh well...them's the breaks!
