A Glock for Gavin

Finally, a Glock made for Gavin. Will suit all his tactical needs now that he is a civilian again and ready to defend home and hearth.

Great option for a disabled shooter with mobility issues.

I'll only buy it if I can have another with a consecutive serial number, so I can wield the pair akimbo.

OR, you could use it to replace ones that you have "misplaced".

.45 gap is a low recoil round, that helps.

No clue who that guy is, but, I did see that he wrote this:

Many people had never heard of the .45GAP, let alone know WHY Glock designed the cartridge. There are lots of great cartridges out there that never caught on. The .45GAP is one of those, but it did have great features. Just like the 6.8mm carbine cartridge, if SOCOM had leaned towards the .45GAP, the world would be different today.
If frogs had pockets, they'd carry pistols to shoot the snakes.

That makes no sense. We are not always the folk heroes that we think we are. Are we??????

They say there are no heroes anymore.

They are wrong. You are a hero.

Until I need something else from you, anyway.

Nonsense, I change them out just like TFG changes his underwear...once a month, whether he needs it or not.
