Glock Display – Cody Firearms Museum (Hi-Res)

I took these pics a while back while out West on a hunting trip. Currently the Cody Firearms Museum is undergoing a major renovation so most of the collection is put away.  In the mean time, if you want to see a, “gaggle of Glocks” check out these thumb nails.

POTD — 347,000 Round Gen 1 Glock

This image is one I took a few years ago while passing through the Cody Firearms museum during a hunting trip. I knew I had it, just didn’t quite remember where. My motivation to digging it out today? I was recently asked by a young man if he should buy a first generation Glock from his local dealer? His principle …

POTD – Glock 19x FDE

Officer Mike is trolling us. He randomly sent this over. Not sure if he’s flashing his resources or offering to let us try the Glock 19x? So what say you? Should we try to get Officer Mike’s Glock out on the range for some testing? Or is this just another in a long line of Glocks? Me? I can see …

Germany’s “Cabela’s”

On a recent hunting trip to Germany, I came across what can only be called the Deutschland equivalent of Cabela’s. Frankonia was stocked with everything one would expect from a European sporting goods store. Classic shooting stools, brass hunter’s horns and loden wool hats and garments were plentiful. Also plentiful were guns, including guns I really did not expect to …

Video: Shooting for Time HK VP9 LE

Shooting the Hk VP9 for time on steel. When you are trying to get faster, it is important to keep pushing yourself on the timer. Eventually you will overrun your limits. But that is what teaches you to get faster. Frankly, if you are a serious student of firearms, and you don’t have a timer in your plan, you are …
