Some people have ranges, some have back yards...
Thank you Bob for all your answers !! Your awesome, BUT One more question
What do you use to insert your arrows, lines and such in pictures ???
Really like this forum, joined a few years ago but just started using it !
Wish I could shoot in backyard, how convenient is that
You're very welcome.

I brag on it more than necessary, but it's pretty cool to be able to just walk out the back door, make sure the horses aren't in the way, and start playing with the guns, tractor, whatever.
Brag a way.
I really like this idea!
A few questions:
1. The sleeve is purchased from Glock?
2. What do you use to cut it?
3. How do I know that I cut it correctly, or incorrectly?
4. If someone has more than one of a given model, can the shortened sleeve be used in more than one pistol?
Thanks, Bob, for sharing your vast Glock knowledge!
I've used shortened firing pin spacer sleeves in lieu of snap caps for many years.
For me, they're much less of a hassle... simply rack the slide to reset the trigger bar... and there are no snap caps to pick up or retrieve from under 'things'.
It's a Glock OEM part that may be purchased from a multitude of sources.
I used a utility knife like this one...
Cut the slotted end.
The cut end should be 'reasonably' square (not necessarily 'perfect').
The finished 'shortened' length should be about 0.725".
For example, the sleeve above shortened 1/8" may be used in all pistols except the G42, G43, G43X, and G48.
You're very welcome.
it is recommended that with my CZ, i do not dry fire. as this "over extends" the firing pin, and can then cause the firing pin retaining roll pin to be damaged up to breaking. so i have snap caps, for my hammer fired guns, and non-hammer fired guns.
I broke a CZ P-10 firing pin once. CZ sent me a new one. Then I sold it. Never broke a Glock firing pin.
since i am as new, as a new-born, i want to treat my guns with as much care as i can. it's something that i do/did with all my vehicles, and back in the day, with my mechanics tools.
that way, "it is there, and working" when i really need it.
so for home defense (my primary reason for having guns), i need them to be working for me, not jamming or breaking apart.
but of course too, any thing mechanical or electrical, can break at any time.
i just like "lessening" those odds a bit.
Buying a Glock will lessen those odds considerably. LOL.
i have one, a gen 4 17
my next one will be a 4th gen 21..they just hadn't been available yet at my stores.
Not speaking against the 21, but you might want to consider the 30.
I think a 30 handles as nicely as a 21, and you can carry the 30 concealed. I do.
On a Gen4, one does not need to worry about SF because the default trigger distance, without adding one of the extra back straps is 2.85 inches, the same as a Gen 3 SF.
to be honest, here in my state, it takes an act of congress, a petition, and the majority of the citizens population of this state, to get a CCW.
now of course, i am joking...
it does not take a majority of the states citizen population.
but it IS difficult to obtain.
i rented the 21 at the range 2 times. and i liked it. it was (to me) like my 17. i also like the 3-13 rnd mags that come with it, as compared to the 2-10 rnd mags of the CZ 97B. (which i have)
i have, "been told" by a couple of RSO's, that there are "work arounds" to obtaining a CCW here in my state, and i "might" explore that in the future.
as it is now, i really want to sharpen my shooting skills as much as possible.
thanks, and i took absolutely no offense as to anything you said!!
Bob, is there a specific sleeve for the G43? If so would you happen to have a part number? Thanks
Unfortunately, at this time, Glock sells the G43 spacer sleeve only as part of the firing pin assembly (which is Glock Part No. 33372), not as an individual part.
