Every time I open this thread, I'm reminded of another that turned into a yuge ball busting session for one of our non-serving, but loyal members:

Don't get me wrong, he deserved it. This thread just reminds me of it is all.

Here is my G23 customized by Mod1 - custom trigger, trigger guard undercut, rounded trigger guard and stippling

I decided I wanted to convert to a G19 so I changed out the slide, barrel and a few other parts. Runs great and I carry it everyday. It kind of looks crappy now but it's a great carry gun.



This G20 will be my backcountry carry gun. Haley skimmer, Ameriglo sights, KKM barrel and wolff spring with tungsten guide rod. I like these brooks a-grip decal grips. They provide a solid grip in all conditions and it's not abrasive when smushed against my side

I LOVE this pistol, the trigger is amazing, extremely accurate. I did all the work myself. By far my favorite carry option.

I saw one and I liked the way it looked. I don't hook my finger up there so no problem.

It puts your support hand just a little bit higher on the gun, it's one thing that is taking me a bit to get use to on my WOTG Glock.

MixedLoad,

I sent SB a PM a while back offering this for any established members as a way to give back to the community.

I'll be happy to do a stippling job, trigger bar/spring polish and lightening, and if you have night sights I'll install them. Can't do much for your slide but that's not something I'm big on anyway.

If you're interested send me a PM. Same goes for anyone interested. I'm not asking for any money to do it, if you'll cover shipping and donate to the site that's enough for me.

Lmao. At least I'm not the only one thinking they were pretty close.

*Sigh*

I really do love it here though...

Only thing I changed so far was the sight on my G17 to TruGlo TFO. Lots of new sight options since then and my tritium has passed at least half its half-life.

New options allow faster aiming via red-dot or one-piece low profile like this one:


Anyone compared the two or have made other fancy sight changes?

Those one-piece sight assemblies are gimmicky as a Santa suit for dick pics. About as useful in any real sense as well. Personally, I want my FS and my RS to be as far the fuck away from each other as possible. Because...well because that's how sights work.

Right now I've been trying different colors of tritium that work best for me. I settled on a green front sight and yellow/amber rear sights. The other way around didn't work as well, however the green FS dot is faster to pick up and thus, faster to focus on. The yellow dots are subtle enough that your eyes naturally center the green dot in the front without having to really focus on it or make a conscious effort.

Of course I've run into another problem now. Winter months are great for daily low light training, because in New England it's dark for about 19 hours a day. I carry with a TLR-1 mounted all the time because I want to be able to confirm I need to shoot in a defensive situation. But shooting with the light on washes out the tritium and I'm basically centering one square between two other squares, and covering the target with my new uni-square. It works but it's not perfect.

The real answer is to shoot the way many of us were taught when using a light, identifying the threat, and engaging without the light while moving. However, in a typical self defense situation, I don't know that I want to be "closing with". Of course I'm nitpicking here for no reason, I guess I should go and find other ways to challenge my shooting that actually matter.

Good gawd damn. That's not a pimp gun. That's the gun you find on a dead wannabe pimp, because the real OG pimp that shot him didn't want it. You'll see flesh-peddlin' street pimps go back to whistle pipes and curb feelers before they'll disrespect themselves in such a degrading fashion.

Keep up the training Local, work your fundamentals every day. That'll make you a better shooter by far, with more applicable consistency on any handgun, and you won't only be able to use the gun that John Gotti threw up before he died.

If you get a good pair of those old school stripper heels...something real tacky like ones with goldfish living in the platforms...maybe you can audition to be a Bond Girl?

So far two of my buddies have Roland Specials. I'm trying to talk myself out of a $2500 Glock...
