I just got back from the range, where I fired the two newest additions to the family; a Ruger 10/22 & a gen 4 Glock 34.

I put 130 assorted rounds through the 10/22 & 100 through the Glock. The 10/22 had one one misfire & a couple of failures to feed (I goofed on the very first one). The Glock functioned flawlessly (50 rounds 115 grain FMJ, & 50 rounds 147 grain sub-sonic? FMJ), but the stock sights have got to go! Plus, look what the Glock did to me:

I don't know if it was because my hands were sweaty, or if it was because I was using the medium back strap or what. Guess I will have to try it without the back strap or put some grip tape on it somewhere. That always seems to help. Anyway, check out the gore:

Ugh, I hate you! I mean grats on the G34! On my 17 and 19 I don't use the back strap and I've never been bitten, so hopefully you won't need the beaver tail.

Is that the first knuckle of your index finger on your left hand? Are you a lefty?

Righty

I am right handed. That is my right thumb knuckle closest to the hand. You know...the one that sits precariously close to the slide when you have a good grip a Glock. ;)

Just picked up my 10/22 this morning can't wait to get it out shooting
Nice! It was fun! Next stop...scope city, then maybe upgraded trigger bits, a stock, a replacement threaded barrel, I don't know...maybe a suppressor. Oh the possibilities. :p

Being that is your thumb on the right hand I would have two thoughts:
1 You have either allowed the gun to shift in your grip during shooting or,
2 You have mighty beefy hands.

I think it is #1 that was the issue though. I say that because of where the slide hit your hand. You would have noticed a un-naturally high grip had you started off that way.

And the G-34 never complained, what a gun!:)

Never, not once. I'm telling you what. Outstanding.

I agree I think it was #1 too. Hands were sweaty, slippery. Not even gen 4s rough textured frame could prevent it. I miss my RTF2, that thing never moved around in my hand. Oh well..I did not want to have to apply grip tape to this one, but it looks like I probably should. Like I said, I'm going to try it without the backstrap too & see what happens.

How do you keep your palms dry? Mind over matter? Talcum? Wear gloves?

Had a great day at the range. I got to play with all my toys.
Tested some loads that I worked up. Got to use the computer interface with the Chrono.

Those are some neat toys! I especially like the G17L, lucky son of a gun. Good shooting. Nice range! Looks clean.

What??????? GRIP TAPE ON A GEN 4?????? Nooooooooooo! It's not needed I tell ya! It's already too rough, and hurts my hands after shooting 3 mags! :rolleyes:

....of course i'm kidding, I too agree with #1

and if this is a carry weapon, I wouldn't shoot with gloves exclusively unless you're Michael Jackson. In other words you don't wear gloves everyday.
