Greetings, everybody! I'm Madman, the resident straight-jacket model. :biggrin: I live in MO, near the KS border, and I've been carrying for about a year now. Primary carry is usually a Glock 36 or a Glock 26, and my BUG is usually a Kel-Tec P3AT. I am seriously considering getting a Glock 38 and a Glock 39 (in .45GAP) for primary carry, but that's still a "wait for the gun fund to recover" situation. Sometimes I carry a Taurus 85 or a Kel-Tec P40 for a BUG if I think there's a better chance of encountering trouble. Knives... well, too many to list. My daily carry is a CRKT M16 Special Forces, Operation Iraqi Freedom special edition, with the desert tan zytel handle scales. Cold Steel, Kershaw, Gerber, and Buck, as well as some oddball knives round out my arsenel.

On a side note, and not to detract from CombatCarry at all, I moderate at MissouriCarry.com and at KSConcealedCarry.com, sites/forums that are dedicated to concealed carry issues (and getting a CCW law passed in KS). Anyone from MO, KS, or surrounding states (well, *anybody*, really!) is welcome to drop by, if the subject matter interests you.

Blaster, you have a nice site here!

Welcome to our forum. Glad Ta Have Ya!
Keep it a secret...but the GLOCK 36 is gradually...slowly...becoming my most carried firearm.
I just can't find a whole lot NOT to like about it.
It's ultra~reliable, truly compact, & very accurate.
I miss not being able to put nice custom grips on it though! :biggrin:
A GLOCK 36 with ivory grips & no finger grooves would sure be sweet.
I'll need to check out MissouriCarry.com 'cause we sure do get heaps of folks here from Missouri.
We have got a few fine knife appreciators here also ~ so you should feel right at home.

madman, welcome to CombatCarry.com. It looks like I'll be headed your way around August. I'll be stopping by your sites to educate myself on the local issues.

Thanks all for the welcome! It's always nice to meet other like-minded gun folks! :biggrin:

Well....
A number of companies out there will do modifications to Glock frames, including eliminating the finger grooves. Robar is the only name that comes to mind at the moment, but if you search on GlockTalk in the gunsmithing forum you'll find several companies that do the mod. They'll also eliminate the palm swell, giving a straight backstrap, much more like a 1911 with a flat mainspring housing. The other thing is that there are a couple of companies out there that will refinish Glock frames in custom colors, with a special kind of paint/dye/?? that bonds to the polymer. I'd bet you could probably find one that would do the grip panels in "ivory". Granted, it's not "the real thing", but it's probably as close as you'll get in a Glock.

Finger Grooves

Thanks for the info madman.
I was actually thinking about taking off the finger grooves myself but matching the exact surface finish of the frame (after I was done) stopped me from doing it. :wink:

They (the finger grooves) really don't bother me much & fit my hand fine but, I'm just more used to a 1911 style plain rounded front strap.
