  1. Front Sight

    Agree 100% with what Omega said, the 26 is your EDC, it was the right gun to take and is more than capable of making those shots. That being said, now that you’ve run the gun in stressful situations you have two decisions to make, practice with it more or start carrying a larger gun. A few other unsolicited observations if you don’t mind. First, you mention you were compensating for bad trigger control by aming high right. Don’t do that, practice more, you’ve already identified the problem. Second, start shooting IDPA or USPSA. These competitions aren’t substitutes for practice or training, but they will help you with trigger control under pressure and not to be ‘owned’ by the timer. Sounds like you had a good time and learned a lot.
  2. for-sale FN FNS 9mm in Chattanooga

    Wish I had the funds for this. I doubt you would interested in a Winchester model 12 16ga.... worth a shot lol

  4. Question Regarding Love of Glocks

    What is “reliable” “performs flawlessly” to you? 50 rounds standing at the range, clean and repeat? Monthly IDPA or USPSA match 200 rounds, clean and repeat? 1000 round handgun class rolling around in the dirt, clean and repeat? 5000 rounds, hasn’t been cleaned since it came out of the box? I have a muzzleloader that’s reliable, goes bang every time, runs flawlessly.... I’ve only fired it once. edit: Have you ever fired a Glock?

  6. Question Regarding Love of Glocks

    You seem to have enough experience and understanding of what you like, so I doubt anyone here could tell something about a Glock that you couldn’t figure out yourself by picking one up and putting some rounds down range with it. Other than looks, is there a tangible reason you don’t like Glocks?
  7. Question Regarding Love of Glocks

    Because it works.
  8. Glock Fingerlakes

    I believe finger placement has a lot to do with the musculature of your hands. Here is what I wrote in another Glock thread: Low left shots are very common with Glocks. Different grips and finger placement work differently, obviously, for everyone. I’ve noticed with myself if I’m hitting low left with my Glock it’s because I have too much finger on the trigger and the fat part of my trigger finger closest to my palm is pushing the pistol left. Sounds like you’re doing the same thing. For me it’s just an adjustment because I have large hands. A gen. 4 might work for you, can’t hurt to try or maybe Glocks just aren’t for you, there are other great options out there.

    Agree with the others, I would like to see the rest of the picture.

  11. Las Vegas Shooting

    This was my point after Sandy Hook when many members of this board were saying that we must compromise to keep from losing everything. Nothing came of it then and now too many gun owners are singing the same song of compromise. I've heard many of you describe the bump fire stock as useless, gimikey, only morons buy them, etc.... There are a lot of people out there that use those same words to describe a AR-15. I know others have said it, but why do we have to give something up every time some loon commits an atrocity? If the video of the PODS in a pussy hat proves to be him, I say we go after pussy hats! (sarcasm to make a point for those of you incapable of reading into it)
  12. .410 for Turkey

    There are many reasons you could give to use a .410 to hunt turkeys, being a " grade a certified cheapskate" isn't one of them.

    I need to try that with my 3yo daughter.
  14. America's newest monument!

    In the interest of fairness, I made another monument to the KKK/White Supremasists about 20 minutes later. (I ate a lot last night lol)
  15. America's newest monument!

    I made a monument to AntiFa first thing when I got up this morning.
