  1. Circling back to my question of whether the G44 is 'legendary,' what occurs to me is that Glock has always been very conservative. The G44 is (as far as I know) first Glock in history that was ever designed as anything other than a defensive handgun. Sure, you could carry a .22LR, but it's not really considered an acceptable defensive caliber. Everything else Glock makes (or has ever made, I think) has been a polymer-framed, striker-fired pistol, chambered in something suitable for defense of one's person. Up until just a few years ago, Glock didn't even make single-stacks. Glock will sell a ton of them, and that's cool. I wouldn't mind shooting one, personally.
  2. As a trainer, I will admit that I'd prefer it came with a 15-round magazine, to make it as similar as possible to a G19/23/32, but that's certainly not the end of the world. And it does make sense to have a 10-rounder available for thse more restrictive states. You're right about that. As for me, I find the G44 interesting, but I won't be trading in my Ruger on one.
  3. As is always, there was a lot of hype. Most of it centered around the arrival of something "legendary." So Glock rolled out its first .22LR today, G19-sized, but only holding 10 rounds. https://us.glock.com/en/pistols/g44 Is it legendary? Do you want one? Thoughts?
  4. There's a huge market for smaller and lighter, and it's not just "people without much firearms experience." They're just easier to carry than full-sized guns. And while I can conceal a full-sized pistol, and have done so, it's a pain in the behind by comparison.
  5. The tapered barrel has more of the 'classic Mark' look that I'm used to, but I have no complaints about how my wife's 22/45 Target model shoots.
  6. Congratulations! She's a beauty. I've only ever shot one CZ, but one magazine made me go, "Oh. NOW I get it." The ergos on that pistol (a 75D Compact?) were out of this world.
  7. Mossberg has a long history of dependable s shotguns at very reasonable prices. The Maverick follows in that tradition.
  8. Volquartsen is having a clearance sale on Ruger Mark IV Target uppers. I’m guessing they use the lowers for their own pistols. It has a serial number, so you will need an FFL. I bought one ($25 + $15 shipping + transfer) to go on my Mark IV 22/45 Lite lower. Yes, it fits. Yes, it functions. https://volquartsen.com/inventory_configurations/3950?clearance=1
  9. Just finished some peanut butter toast, which is a pretty standard breakfast for me. Last night, though .... I had ahi tuna tacos with a habanero sauce that were amazing. Got a tomato-cucumber-mint salad and refried pintos with bacon as my side dishes and feasted nicely.
  10. I've been very happy with mine. I almost hate to say this, especially in a thread about "your Glock ccw setup," but .... as much as I love my G19, and I do, the Shield pretty much ended the G19's ccw career.
  11. Smith and Wesson Shield 9mm, also carried in a Speed Scabbard or an SG Revolution.
  12. I no longer CC a Glock, but when I did, it was a Gen 4 G19 in either a DeSantis Speed Scabbard or a Stealth Gear Revolution, usually loaded with 124 grain Remington Golden Sabers. If I were shopping for a new Glock for CC today, the G48 would get a very close look.
  13. You're not cherry-picking targets? Seriously, though, you're not alone. As much as I like shooting, I'm not all that good at it. I see all the dime-sized groups and know good and well I can't do that. For starters, my eyes just aren't what they used to be. I can hear it now: Turns to first daughter. "Hold the target over your chest." Turns to other daughter. "No, you may not shoot at it right now."
