  • Is the Glock 17 the Perfect Zombie Gun

    For the record, we want to say that zombies are fictional creatures, but just in case we are wrong, you may want to have a good handgun. And we think that the G17 could be just the ticket for when the world gets a little more undead. Why the G17? In an end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it situation, the Glock 17 has a lot of things going for it. Besides a fetching profile, the pistol has a basic flush-fit magazine capacity of 17+1 rounds. Extended 33 round box mags or 50-round drum mags are out...
  • 12 rare Glocks you may not know of

    With so many models of Glocks out there, there are bound to be a few that you have never heard of. With that in mind, we decided to take a look at a dirty dozen that are lesser known. Blue Glock The Glock TFX shown in the hands of Mr. Colion Noir A group called Simunitions makes a neat little round that is used in force-on-force training. You know, the kind of stuff where a blue team rushes into a structure to seize it while a red team tries to stop them. In the world of Simunitions, these...
  • Features of the G41 Gen 4

    Along with the G42, Glock has also debuted the G41 Gen 4 semi-auto pistol, a longer barrel pistol in .45 Auto. It is a pistol that comes with all the standard features of the Gen 4, with some slight modifications. When compared side by side, it is a longer-barreled version of the Gen4 Glock 21, but it is a thinner version, and it has been measured down to match the same composition as the tactical/practical 5.3 inch barrel of the G34, 35 and 40 versions. Essentially it is a Glock 21 with a...
  • So you want a Pink Glock

    With the invention of a modern polymer-framed firearm a few interesting developments came about. Besides the obvious weight savings and production streamlining, polymer can be molded in several colors. More importantly, even when molded, polymer is a canvas for modern high-temperature firearms coatings. This leads to some very interesting combinations. Why Pink? October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are...
  • Blue Label Glocks

    Among Glock owners there is that great and mythical beast known across the country as a blue label gun. Let us clear up some of the rumors and see if you qualify for one of your own. What is a Blue Label? For those who don't know, Glocks all come in the same black box but with several different colored labels for dealers. Guns for commercial sales guns with two low capacity (10-round or less) magazines have a white label. Guns for commercial sales with two-three high capacity magazines have...
  1. Glock Survival Kit Review

    On the advice from a friend and fellow Glock enthusiast, I recently purchased a Glock Survival Kit to keep in my contingency kit. Well, to be completely honest, I bought two. They were on sale from Botach, and I knew my wife would just take it from me to put in her snowmobile if I didn't get her one of her own. You learn to take these precautions when you have a wife who is more of a gear queer than you are. Total price for one kit, $49.95 with free shipping, not including the stowage bag...
  2. Quick review of a 4th Generation Glock 17

    I picked up a Glock 17 Gen 4, my first Glock 17. I thought to myself: feels good, better in my hand than the Gen 3s because of the RTF stippling. For those who are asking what is RTF, it stands for Rough Textured Frame. I know 90 percent of us Glock people swear by the Gen 3 series and at first, I was like, "my Gen 3 is good enough." Nevertheless, after a friend had me try his Gen 4 G17, I was hooked. Therefore, after trading in my Sig P250 and shooting the breeze with my buddy who owns the...
  3. Glock 43: Has Glock finally listened and is bringing out a single stack 9?

    In the past few weeks Glock has been dropping hints of something big coming through its social media channels that has many hoping against hope that the polymer pistol giant is finally debuting a single stack 9mm subcompact pistol. Clue #1 On March 6, Glock posted a picture of a recoil spring on their Facebook page with the simple caption "This Spring." When taking a closer look at the spring itself, it's different from the new G42 spring that has 12 coils on the left half as this spring...
  4. What's your favorite Glock Generation?

    When first introduced thirty year ago, the polymer-framed Glock safety action pistol was one of the most innovative handguns of the 20th Century. Now, well into the 21st, the Glock has evolved over four full generations (and several partial ones) to keep up with the times and give the public what they want. With that in mind, which is your favorite? Glock Model 19s of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generations from left to right. Photo via Instagram The First Gen Ah, the guns that started it all....
  5. Update on the new Glock Model 40: Looks like longslide 10mm

    Last weekend we brought news of the rumored new addition to the Glock line of safe action polymer framed handguns that included two possibilities: one, of a fabled single stack 9mm that had circulated among the online rumor mills, and a second of a long-slide 10mm hunter model. Well, it seems that the scales have tilted this week towards the latter being more correct. The New Model 40 On Christmas Eve, the fine folks over at Triangle Tactical posted rumint from Weddles Gun Shop in...

  7. Glock Frame Detail Strip

    Going past your normal monthly inspection, and your post range-visit cleaning, there is the full frame strip to get that good old-fashioned deep cleaning. This isn't for everyone, but it can prove beneficial. First, any attempt to go beyond field stripping your Glock is done at your risk. These steps are provided for information purposes only. If at any point you are uncomfortable with any of the steps, consult your local gunsmith or Glock Armorer. Always handle firearms in a safe manner,...
  8. Shot placement is King, Caliber is Queen

    I have carried everything, almost. 380 at first, and then went to the 9mm in the G26. From there I carried a G30 but not too long. I'm not a huge guy. Then I settled on the .40 in a G27...for quite a while. Today you will find me with a 357sig in a G33. I guess what I am getting at is' "what can you hit most accurate with, stop a threat effectively and carry comfortable?" Moreover, that answer is probably the gun you carry and practice with the most. This debate will go on til the end of...
  9. Of Grip, Grips, and first hand accidents

    I have been shown and told more than once the way I hold my Glock is incorrect. Really? Alright, I respect your opinion, I am not the very best shot in the world, nor do I know everything there is to know about, well just about anything. However, I will say ask this, if I may: Do you hold every gun the exact same way? I mean revolver, snubnose, or 6", derringer, 1911 or other semi auto of any size or brand? I do. And it is called the wrist brace method. Now hold on for just a couple more...
  10. Glock photo experiments

    Ever tried to get shots of your Glock in the wild but keep coming up short. Well Robert Godwin, sight member, writer, and amateur photographer, shares how he got this series of amazing images. So if you are a Glock buff, or a camera buff, or both, keep reading! (And of course always follow all range safety rules at all time.)-Editors I am using a DSLR Canon T2I, it is an 18 mp with 18-55mm lens, great camera that also does video in 1080, which is what these came from. No way I could...
  11. My first Glock, and why

    Let me start by saying I am not an expert although like most of us, after time we get to know much more about the things we really like and I love Glocks. Before I got my first Glock, I had a WW2 Remington 1911, a 6-inch stainless S&W .357 Model 66, a 4" S&W "combat masterpiece" and a Colt 2.5" Diamondback revolver handguns in my arsenal...still do, but I evolved. It was actually my son that got me looking at the plastic gun (as it was called back then). He was hot for one as he was going...
  12. Why I carry, and why the Glock 19 works for me

    I am a military member. My job is fixing airplanes. So owning a gun is a new thing for me. I decided to buy a gun when I began living off-base for the first time. I had always wanted to own a gun, but the regulations about firearms on-base made me reluctant until now. I talked to a friend who directed me to a specific pawn and gun shop. I knew I wanted something in 9mm, as that's our service caliber right now, and it's plentiful and cheap. I tried out the grip on several, and was told...
  13. Glock 21

    3rd Generation w/rail: Price: $525.00 Pros: Comfortable, accurate, user friendly, easy to operate, low maintenance, dependable, great value for the money. Cons: None Recommended? Yes I purchased this 3rd generation Glock 21, 45 Automatic, new almost 2 years ago. I had researched Glocks and knew them to be dependable and a good "bang for the buck", but this gun has exceeded every expectation I had going into the purchase. It runs flawlessly. For target ammo I have used a cheap but clean...
  14. Glock 19

    Price Range:$500.00 - $599.00 Average Price: $549.00 MSRP:$599.00 I've carried numerous Glocks over the past 23 of my 30 years in law enforcement. My agency first transitioned from revolvers to Glock in 1990. We started with the Glock 17 and several years later went to the G22 to now where we can choose either the G22 or the G21 for department issue sidearm. I've carried a G27 for off-duty and back-up purposes and have been impressed with all these guns. I recently purchased a G19 Gen 3...
