    I'm with you on that Jason. I had owned several snubbies over the years and could never hit the broad side of a barn with one. The first time I picked up a Glock which was a model 19 that I bought from my Son I was amazed. I now own a 17, 19 and 26 and all are extremely accurate

    Has anyone handled a G41 yet? I like the idea of the thinner frame and closed top slide. Waiting for my local shop to get one so I can handle it.

    No I haven't but I would like to because it sounds like the perfect concealed carry pistol. I wouldn't be surprised either if Glock didn't have a single stack 9mm in the works.

    I mean the 41 (long slide 45ACP) not the 42 (380 concealed)

    New stock on my AR to keep my rifle compliant with recent local law changes, it was either this or reclassify the gun, upgrade my security, and not use it for hunting. Under the new law, free standing pistol grips were added to the list of parts that are restricted, some local manufacturers have come up with some nice solutions, joining the grip to the stock technically a "thumb hole" stock while not looking like balls, this one from servo industries. Made of alloy, overall its lighter than my magpul furniture, partly from the integration of the buffer tube into the stock itself, that's just a foam sleeve on the tube. The irony is I now have an A2 style grip, which previously were the only pattern of PG restricted.

    Current EDC is a Glock 30S in a FIST Hybrid IWB holster. My Sunday going to church IWB is a Kahr PM9, and when I am out on my property with my dogs, it is a Glock 20 in a Serpa OWB holster. Have a number of others, but those are the main three currently...

    I'm Canadian which means we can't carry guns. It doesn't mean we can't take em to the range for some fun every once in a while.

    I wish it was an M1A. That is a pre 2005 Ruger Mini 14, ranch rifle. great rifle, so long as you don't expect long range accuracy or expose it to the elements too bad, like dropping it in mud.

    Nothing quite like the good ol' Beretta 90 series.

    Different strokes for different folks. I've never handled a "double stack" auto that felt "right" in my hand and I'd rather know that, in the admittedly unlikely event of a misfire, all I need do is pull the trigger again than to be ready for what I see as the equally unlikely need for more than 5 shots.

    Glad you found something that works for you. I'll agree that snubbies aren't tack drivers, but "back in the day", when I was scoring 260-270 consistently on the NRA Short Course with my 6" Officers Model Match, I shot a 228 on it with the Detective Special. Not terribly impressive, but not too shabby either. Today, I can consistently draw, point, shoot, and hit a 5" circle at 5 yards with my snubbies. Again, nothing to write home about, but I'm satisfied.

    My Dad always carried a snub nose Colt .38 Special Cobra six gun. He never warmed up to semi-autos. That said, things have changed quite a bit, and while I love my Glock 23, I sure wish still had my Dad's too.
