    .22 rimfire conversion kit

    Advantage Arms is a great conversion. I believe you will find they are Glock Generation specific so make sure you get the right one and use the recommended brand of ammo.

    Have read both One Second after and One year after. Both excellent reading.

    Who are the site's martial artists?

    Interesting subject. Judo in my youth and karate privately in my early days as a detective. Used to be able to kick to shoulder height with ease but now at 75 struggle to get my feet up to my knees!

    Where do you shoot?

    Are there steel plates behind the baffles? If not what is roughly the thickness of the wood?

    GSSF membership

    Have been a member for many years and enjoy competing at two locations yearly. Have done both the basic and advanced armorers courses but with my advancing years(75) and increased cost will probably not renew my certification when due.

    If they ban...

    After 2008 I promised myself I would always have enough to never run out of primers, powder, bullets, lead, .22lr, etc, etc.

    GSSF Pricing Question.....again. (And GT Dist input)

    Depends whether the store can buy direct from Glock or through a distributor. My LGS was 'demoted' last year because he did not meet their minimum target in sales and now has to buy from a distributor which means cost to customers is now an added $30.

    Lead Blood Test

    Yes, I had one done recently. Like you I wanted a baseline. I was concerned with all the shooting and reloading I do it was the sensible thing to do.Back in the 80's in London all the police indoor ranges were closed down because ALL the instructors were found to have lead blood levels that were through the roof and one with cancer as a result. Of course they were exposed to lead dust Monday through Friday 0800 to 1600 for years before it was discovered.

    Beautiful Cars & Trucks

    Never seen one of those before. Is it an aftermarket add-on for the US market?
