  • Who is stronger the Science Oven or the Glock

    If you have seen American Hustle then you can\'t help but laugh at the discussion over old school microwaves, err we mean \"Science ovens\". Well the kids over at Demolition Ranch decided to see what happens when you take a standard Glock and give it the science oven test. The results may just underwhelm you. (We who are about to die, salute you) The test When we switched from SIGs to Glocks several years ago with my department, we found out that the only thing our new polymer guns had to...
  • The FN Five Seven and the Glock 42

    13 December 2014: The FN Five-SeveN and the Glock 42 Introduction Today was my "birthday" range visit, so I decided to try out two handguns that I am interested in: the FN Five-SeveN and the Glock 42. This is basically a sort of review of the two guns, but it's also an article about what I did at the range on this day. The FN Five-SeveN The first thing I noticed about this gun is that it's not abnormally large in hand. For a duty, or full size, handgun, it was easy to handle. It wasn't...
  • Battle of the .45s: Glock vs 1911

    With the heaviest gun bag I've carried lately, I headed off to the range with my two 1911 models and my Glock 21SF and Glock 30. I have shot all of these many times but never in a test like situation. This is going to be about the most unscientific analysis there could be but I wanted to experience a hands on comparison since I have no other automatics except for Glocks. First off: the guns. The Remington 1911 was bought from an older gentleman back in the mid-70s. He got it in the 50s. It...
  • Trying .45 ACP for the First Time

    Today I decided to go try some handguns in .45 ACP because I had never shot this caliber before. Being a long time 9mm lover and yet also being new to guns (shot my first handgun in January of this year and bought my first handgun in February of this year); this caliber is entirely new to me. I had fun. Here's how it went. The Guns I tried four guns: the Glock 21, the Remington 1911R1, the Ruger SR45, and the Beretta PX4. I shot Remington Golden Saber .45 ACP out of all the guns. Here's...

  1. What we know so far on the G43

    With the (formal) introduction of the Glock 43 slim line 9mm subcompact week before last (after weeks of leaks) there has been much video, information and debate that has already accompanied this sought after pistol that is being pitched to the concealed carry masses. Let us look at what we know... What Smyrna says: Glock themselves has built an entire site dedicated to the new piece that includes a promo video and lots of decent graphics and specs and an availability locator to highlight...
