Re: New Pistol for Home Defense???

Just wondering why I see no comments regarding Beretta?

I guess the slide cracked issue did this gun in.

Glocks are very innacurate. XD's are built much better than Glocks also. Cheaper too. They are just as easy to use as a Glock. IMHO they make Glocks obsolete.

meichele, I respectfully disagree with Glocks being inaccurate and even disagree more with them being obsolete.

I have owned and shot Glocks for many years, the list include: G19, G17, G22, G23, G34, and G35. For being a loose gun, I have been impressed how accurate they all have been. I have been in informal local tactical competitions using production guns and have seen many guns including customs jamming up. My Glocks never let me down whether I was shooting or my sons. Shooting from the bench and using iron sights, my Glock 34 would easily group 5 shots within 2" at 25 yards.

Here is a small video of me shooting my Glock 35 in 40

Re: New Pistol for Home Defense???

hey eaglet, thats a sweet video! and some fine shooting I might add.

I like a lot of guns, kimbers, kahr's, H&K's, glocks, etc, etc...
Bue when people say that glocks aren't accurate, you just have to smile. I have a 34, and that thing shoots better than I can. While not the prettiest pistol out there, you would be hard pressed to find a more reliable AND accurate shooter.

[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Almost the exact way I express my self about glocks. IMO they're the ugliest shooting devices I've seen. My brother, an MD that lives in Honduras, Central America, thinks they're nice looking. Go figure! I've got five glocks on my CCW I'm confident to protect my self and family with any of them but because of their size I enjoy packing the G23 or G19.

Re: New Pistol for Home Defense???

Whatever you decide on for home defense, there are a few of things to do.

1. Run enough rounds through the gun that you are confident that when you pull the trigger, it'll go bang. A couple hundred at least. Even so, learn to clear stoppages quickly.

2. Spend enough time shooting and dry firing the weapon that you can handle it instinctively. Remember that you may have to use it when half-asleep, or after you've downed a couple of refreshing beverages.

3. Think about home defense tactics beforehand. Where do you have hard cover? What's behind that wall that you might not want to shoot? If it comes to it, can you actually shoot someone? Plan ahead.

Re: New Pistol for Home Defense???

Jerry B.,
It all boils down to what you said. Well said!
I have seen folks clearing stoppages so fast that I was
very impressed. I have not much experience on clearing stoppages because you just don't see them when shooting
glocks but definately something nice to be able to do.
I have done and plan on keep doing lots of dry firing.
Nice post. Thanks!
