    Glock Gen5.

    So, I planned to buy a Blue Label Gen 5 19 with my GSSF coupon. Messaged GT distributors and got this message back: "We got word from Glock yesterday the Gen5 Glocks are not eligible got GSSF at this time. Once they are included we will do our best to get the information out there" Now that sucks
  2. I've had several Shield in 40 and 9. Tried to like them but they just weren't for me. So I saw this one and bought it, shot it, guess what, it's not for me. The grip gets too thin front and back and she bore axis is higher than I like, just like the others. Oh well, I tried. ( again)
  3. Have a crossbreed, thies and fox. They are all about the same to me.
  4. I have the 229 E2 in .40 cal. I found my IWB leather/kydex for my .45 XDM compact works great (what a surprise). I am having problems finding a leather OWB for this model as the standard 229 does not work on this model. I am tempered to try the XDM leather for it, but wants to find one specifically for this gun. Any suggestions?
  5. My favorite 9mm carry is my CZ p01. My favorite 45 carry is my XDS. Believe it or not, the CZ carries almost as good as the XDS.
  6. Took my Shield to the range today. Shot 100 rounds through both mags, no problem. This in one great shooting carry gun. I would like to get a couple of hundred more through it until I have total confidence!
  7. Called S&W Today, Said mine is shipped and I should get back tomorrow. They replaced the mag release and mags. Will check it out and update.
  8. Got a FoxX Hybrid IWB for my shield. Love It!
  9. Was so excited to find a .40 shield in Clarksville! Shot it this week and it dropped the mag on the first shot! Ok, so maybe I didn't secure the mag. Made sure it was " home" but had the same issue. So I have large hand, I must be hitting the release as the gun is on the small side and it is , after all,a .40. Repositioned thumb to be SURE I didn't hit the release and yes, it dropped again. Same issue with both mags. Not just every now and then, but they would drop more often than they stayed in! Of course had FTF and stove pipes due to the mag issue. Thought it could be worse with the mags fully loaded so put three rounds in each Mag and STILL the same problem! After all the " experiments" put it away and got out my trusty G23. It made me appreciate it more than ever. Came home and called S&W. They said " yes, they've heard of this" and will send me a shipping label. Of course I'm dissappointed. When it did fire, recoil was very acceptable and it appears to be accurate, The size is perfect for CCW and the "feel" is bigger than it is, and I appreciate that. Shoots bigger than it is. Based on some other threads, this problem appears to be pretty common since July 1. From what I read, several owners have sent theirs back as much as 3 times. Hope they get mine right the first time!
