    Who Has The Glock 45

    I bought one the first day they came out. It's a great gun! I tried for a minute to make it our new duty weapon but it wouldn't fit in our holsters with WMLs (the gen5/19x/45 have different rails than the gen3/4) so we traded in our gen3 31s for gen4 31s. I tried waiting for word of a gen5 31 but nothing. I had to spend the city's money or I would lose it so I spent it. I'm sure Glock will announce a gen5 31 at the end of the month when I drop our old guns off.

    Keeping magazines separate

    Change baseplate colors for one caliber. I keep 15 round Glock 31 mags in my car. I carry either the 32 or 33. I also keep SIG P365 mags in the car for when I feel like carrying 9mm. This way I can grab the appropriate mag since they are different brands.

    Subaru BRZ

    I forgot, I looked at the Miata RF? Is that the one with the fancy roof? But I still wanted a rear seat that might pass as usuable for a small adult so I went back to looking at the BRZ before I went back to BMW.

    New dashcam fun...

    I got some Yi dashcams when there was a sale on Amazon. One mounted for the front and one for the rear. I don't need GPS. I keep smaller sized microsd cards in the car and a cheap netbook? I've made videos for PDs on the spot if my dashcams recorded something. My only issue now when warmer weather comes is mounting the rear dash cam someone. It's not an issue now since there's no reason to put the top down but I plan on driving with the top town all the time.

    Subaru BRZ

    I love the BRZ. Back in 2014, I went to look at one and test drove it. The only issue was I had two kids to drive around and my youngest would not fit in the back seat at all. So I bought a Legacy instead and said I would get the BRZ in 2018 when my daughter turned 16 and started driving on her own. Well, 2018 came and I went and looked at the BRZ again. Loved it. Started working the paperwork out and when they told me what they were giving me for my Legacy, I backed out. Subaru guaranteed trade price was horrible. I owed $8k on the Legacy and they would only give me $12k (used '15s were selling for around $18k in my area) and wouldn't give me 0% financing since that was only for '18 Outbacks. I ended up buying an '18 BMW 430i xDrive convertible. They gave me $15.5k on my Subaru and 0.9% financing. I might go back later for the upcoming redesign of the BRZ. Then again, I'm really loving this hardtop convertible.

    LEOs..any own a Glock 25?

    I asked our LE dealer a couple of months ago when I ordered new guns for our department and he said he's done it before, you just wait an unknown amount of time for it. Then he asked me if I wanted to order one. I said, nah, just give me that brand new 45 you just unboxed.
  7. I got sent home (they didn't take my gun since I used my hands) on a Thursday and returned to work on Monday. I didn't make an official statement till six days later to an outside agency and they made sure I had my union rep and lawyer with me. SO, three days off which happen to fall on my three day weekend (we were on 12s), no support, no calls, nothing, just come back to work on Monday since we can't pay OT. I rewrote part of our policy after that for OIS incidents. The officer's gun will be taken away for evidence, but I will issue them another one on the spot or give them mine until I can go get another one.

    Glock 45

    Love mine so far. Love my 19X too. Someone with a gen4 23 or 32, stick your upper on the 45 frame and let me know if it works. :) If it does, I'm going to order a gen4 32 upper and make myself a new duty gun.
  9. I have an old Lone Wolf slide that I built a 40/357 compact with. Looking to do another. Any chance you guys will be release the Alphawolf slide (wave serrations) in anything other than 9mm? Thanks.

    Replacement Glock Sights

    Standardizing all my Glocks on the Ameriglo Agents whenever it's time to replace them. I already bought a set for my new duty gun which got pushed back to next year so I''ll probably just stick them on my next gun which I will probably buy before we finally switch.

    S & W Victory

    I love mine, could never get it apart. Some gorilla at the factory must've been putting them together. It did break on my daughter last month. It's been at S&W for two weeks now with no response as to what they are doing. This piece broke off and of course by the time I got home to see if I can fix it, it disappeared.
  12. My 11 year old has an SBR'd AR9 in his room as his HD "rifle". My 15 year old daughter has a SIG MPX pistol with brace. They have Glock 19 pistols as well. If needed, they can toss ammo or mags back and forth since their bedrooms are at the end of the hallway. Their PCCs are suppressed. Their pistols are not. They each have their own safes in their rooms. They're on the 3rd floor. I'm on the second. If someone makes it past me, they can take care of the rest. I just bought a shotgun to try and decide how it fits into my routine. My bedside gun is my old suppressed Glock 21 and I keep a suppressed 300blk SBR nearby. All my guns have WMLs. The kids just have handhelds.

    LWD Alpha Barrel

    That's good to hear! I bought an AW 357 barrel for my 35. No issues but all I have to shoot it with are Winchester 125gr ammo. FMJ and T-Series JHP. About 800 rounds of FMJ and 100 of JHP so far and no issues. Can't compare it to a factory barrel since they don't make one.

    What flashlight do you keep close by?

    I have an old OLight SR Mini Intimidator II sitting on my nightstand. I forgot what I bought it for and it just sits around and charges with microusb. Works nice at night.

    So talk me into or out of a Tavor

    My X95 in 5.56 is a gassy rifle. Worse when suppressed. I didn't bother getting the 300blk conversion kit.
