The One Problem With The Glock 19

First of all, let me start off by saying that the Glock 19 is the gold-standard world wide for service and civilian pistols. As someone internet famous once said, “It’s big enough to fight with, but small enough to actually carry”. And I can’t disagree with that statement one bit. And when I was officially introduced to the Glocks by …

Handguns Seen at 2016 Ft. Benning Sniper Challenge

I know the subject of issued military handguns is always a hot-button topic among most firearms enthusiasts. I suspect the reason for this isn’t the significance or primacy of handguns in combat. They are secondary and rarely used. But rather civilians live in mostly a handgun world. So any brand confirmation hits them right in the feels. But let us …

5 Is Enough Until It’s Not

There is an interesting assault case that came out of Pennsylvania recently. A group of 5 college football players waited in ambush and beat a man so senseless that he has brain damage.

Glock is Already the Military Service Pistol

The fix is in. I thought maybe with the rumors about the SIG P320 being the FBI favorite, things would change? But the FBI just choose a Glock. And IMO it will be a standard Glock. Not some crazy custom, new Glock. Why? Because the 9mm Glock is already in the FBI’s Table of Equipment (TOE). You see, the FBI …

FBI Selects Glock 9mm

I will start off by saying that I know as much as you do regarding the FBI’s decision to choose a Glock 9mm as the next standard service pistol. Also like many of you, I too had heard that the FBI’s RFP basically seemed written to give the SIG P320 the win. Now before we all start going off the …

What Handgun Should I Buy?

Sometimes I get questions from random people on the internet. And they tend to repeat. So I figured I would start to post them on the blog and just link to them as needed going forward.

Pulling Out The Backup CCW Glock 19

I travel quite a bit. Mostly by airplane. As such, checking luggage is simply a reality. When I made the switch back to Glocks as a work pistol, I automatically purchased two Glock 19 GEN 4 FDE’s. My logic being the 19’s would be the CCW platform of choice. And if one goes down for repair, or even worse become …
