The weather was good, the shooting was bad and that Glock is still ugly. Everybody had previous engagements so I went to the range by my self, no witnesses
Last month after years of making cracks about them I finally broke down and purchased a Glock. It is the new Gen 4 Model 19 9mm. No blued steel, no nickle plate, no walnut wood, just black plastic. This is the first time I have had to shake it out. I did fire it about 30 times a couple weeks back but nothing since. It has been a long cold winter and this was my first time for some shooting since Thanksgiving so give me a break please.
All those 120 rounds were done off hand no rest at 25 yards. I was seated on my bench. The ammo was UMC 115 gr. bulk and a mix of my 124 gr. handloads. Some of the handloads were 4 grs. of W231 behind a 124 gr fmj. while this plinking load works well in a Ruger SR9 and a S&W 669 it needs a bit more power to be reliable in the Glock as I had a few failures to feed when firing that load. The UMC worked fine no problems.
I joke about this Glock but truthfully it is a great little gun. A natural pointer and easy to get used to. A unique trigger that took some getting used to. If you have fired one of those rubber band guns well the Glock trigger is similar
On the second target I fired off just ten rounds of Winchester Bonded PDX 147 gr jhp which I will use as a defensive round. These were fired at 50 feet and again off hand.
Don't know if it is me or if I need to bump that rear sight to the right just a bit. Will wait for another try as I was getting a little jumpy by the time I got finished.
Would I recommend this gun or buy it again? Yes I would. But it is still butt ugly
