  1. This is a fair price on a gun that everyone should have at least one of, even if they aren't Glockaphiles. I've cleaned up the thread slightly and wish you good luck with the sale.
  2. I know what you mean. My Gen3 is too slick for me. One of these days I'll either send it off for some work or get brave and take a burner to it myself. The Gen4 and Gen5 guns are much better. Let me know if I can hook you up with this G21. It needs a good home.
  3. No but frankly it's no wonder you or anyone else would question that looking at any Glock since Gen 3. This is indeed the Gen 4. Gen 4 uses what Glock referred to as the "RTF3" texture which is supposedly less aggressive than the "RTF2" texture that the guns everyone thinks of as being RTF (the fish gill guns) have. It's confusing as hell. They look alike, but the nubs on the finish aren't as tall on the Gen 4 guns as they are on the RTF guns.
  4. I stand corrected about the Romeo-1 not having anything to co-witness with. I apparently didn't search hard enough for a rear image of the sight. That said, I am still told that the front sight that comes with the X-Compact is not tall enough to accurately cowitness against the notch in the rear sight. At 3-5 yards, is anyone really aiming and why would you need a red dot for that?
  5. Price reduced slightly to generate some interest. I seriously doubt -- and I mean very, very seriously doubt -- that I will lower the price further for any reason but would instead opt to keep it because why give away a perfectly good firearm? I would like to use the sale of this to fund a G45, so the sooner the better.
  6. I was initially somewhat interested in the X-Compact until I realized that you eliminate the rear iron sights when you put the Romeo red-dot optic on it. Why in the world they designed it this way is beyond me. FN manages to keep the rear iron sight with the 509 Tactical and everyone under the sun can mill a Glock 19 or M&P slide to accept an RMR and still use a thinner rear iron sight. Also worth noting is that the front irons don't co-witness with anything on the Romeo when you install it, so if your red dot goes down you are going to have to improvise. Swapping it for a taller sight does nothing for you since, again, there is no rear iron or anything to align it with on the Romeo. Lastly, I am not a fan of the Romeo-1 optic. I'd rather install a Trijicon RMR or Leupold Delta Point Pro. Reportedly the Romeo-1 shares the same footprint as the Leupold DPP but the DPP is a hair longer in front of the mounting screws which means it won't fit on the Sig X-Compact or X-Carry. This is a serious "WTF Sig?" moment for me. You could have the optic's pocket milled slightly longer to allow the DPP to fit, but it sucks to have to do that. They came REALLY close to building a gun I'd want to have with the Sig X-Compact, but then fumbled the ball on such simple yet critical features.
  7. Trade options have been updated also. I would be interested in a Glock G45 (9mm). I might be interested in a Gen4/5 Glock G17.
  8. I have updated the original post with photos of the actual firearm. Also, Raven Concealment Phantom holster (right hand) for Streamlight TLR-1, and Streamlight TLR-1 available to you for an additional $100 combined. (Approx $200 value on this combination)
  9. I honestly haven't had time this past week to do it, but I don't have that excuse today. I will break it out of the safe and get some photos taken, then update this thread a bit later.
  10. Words fail at times like this. I'm very sorry. My prayers will be with you and your family.
  11. FOR SALE - Glock 21 (.45ACP) Gen 4 Up for sale is my barely used Glock 21 Gen 4. Never carried. Holstered to test-fit a Raven Concealment Phantom rig. One owner (Me). Less than 200 rounds through it. This is perhaps as "like new" as a used firearm gets. I bought this for use as a nightstand gun, so it has lived its life nestled inside of a biometric safe. I replaced the crap factory sights with a combination Wilson Combat / Vickers Tactical rear sight and an Ameriglo i-Dot front sight with bright orange outline surrounding a green Tritium vial. This sight combination is my go-to for Glocks and shoots point of impact / point of aim, and is stupid fast to use without sacrificing accuracy. The gun also has a Crux Ordnance aluminum extended magazine release. Unlike most extended releases, this one features a knurled and gently humped thumb button that is easy to manipulate by pushing forward with your thumb, but not so easily manipulated that a holster will accidentally eject your mag. Includes the two factory 13 round magazines, factory hard case, all factory accessories. If I can find additional mags in my stash, you may have them too. Common Internet retail on the Glock 21 Gen 4 is around $546 plus shipping and transfer fees. Common local retail is higher than that, of course, plus tax. Sale price $490. Will trade for a Glock G45 (9mm) in comparable condition. Will consider a Gen4/5 Glock G17 in comparable condition. No other trades sought at this time. Local pickup in the Nashville area (Williamson County or Davidson near airport). Cash only. Buyer must show carry permit unless I already know you. Raven Concealment Phantom holster (right hand) for Streamlight TLR-1, and Streamlight TLR-1 available to you for an additional $100 combined. The holster and weapon light are worth about $200 retail, combined.
  12. Let me state first that I am not picking on you here. You simply made some statements that are a good segue into something we all need to talk about. That said, I think you are entirely correct that people aren't wholesale rushing to turn them in or destroy them. Perhaps that's because there are still some lawsuits against the government pending that haven't been decided upon yet and owners of these devices are reluctant to destroy something today that, while illegal, might be taken back off of the prohibited items list tomorrow. Or perhaps it really is just an act of civil disobedience and the folks that own these are silently giving the government a defiant middle finger. And, you know, our nation was founded on that principle so I can't fault anyone who's operating under that mindset. It's in our DNA and resonates with me pretty deeply. BUT... the fact remains that bump stocks are, currently at least, lumped into the same category as a machinegun and there was no provision granted to grandfather them in, or allow citizens to register them as NFA-regulated devices and legitimize them with a tax stamp. They are, therefore, illegal to own and discovery of ownership carries hefty fines and potentially imprisonment. Now, does that mean that the BATFE is going to go door to door looking for bump stocks? Highly unlikely. But what it does mean is that a citizen's bump stock could be discovered by coincidence during a search or seizure for another crime, and now that citizen would very likely be charged with a Federal firearms crime that carries heavy penalties. Even if the original reason for the search or seizure was a misdemeanor crime. Say, like getting pulled over for running a stop sign and the officer feels that there's reason to search your vehicle for contraband and finds a bump stock you forgot about in the trunk of your car. Or, if you really want to make it realistic, say your spouse or significant other accuses you of domestic violence -- whether founded or not -- and the police come to your home to investigate. Suppose in the course of that they find your secret stash of bump stocks. Now you're facing the same sort of penalties that former Nashville-area KIA hockster Christopher Bostick was hit with back in 2015 and finally sentenced for just last year. Bostick was investigated for a domestic issue originally, but the police found two "sub machineguns", neither of which were properly registered to him under NFA laws. Instant felony charges. You can read about that here: https://www.wsmv.com/news/former-nashville-kia-dealer-sentenced-on-gun-charges/article_2ecbc3e6-3e2a-5666-9f79-db4d438ca394.html So, the bottom line here is that anyone who continues to own a bump stock needs to engage in a serious soul-searching exercise. While I think that the current power-grab by the Trump administration regarding these devices is egregious, unconstitutional, abhorrent, and hopefully will be struck down by the Supreme Court, I am also a realist and suspect it won't be and these devices will never again see legal ownership in the United States. Keeping one around as a middle finger at the government is a personal choice. Some of our founding fathers likely would approve of it too. But they also had to do some soul-searching when they stood up to the King of England, and many of them paid terribly high prices for it even though it earned the rest of us freedom and a new country. I question whether modern Americans are really patriot-enough to risk everything the way that those men did.
  13. I seriously didn't realize you could do it between threads. Nice!
  14. I am working on a feature that will allow our members to contribute to a database of Gun Shops, FFL Transfer Agents, Gunsmiths, Shooting Ranges, and Training Providers. You may see bits and pieces of it "leak" ahead of time but you generally won't have access to any of them until it's 100% ready. I hope to finalize it this weekend.
    I have been shooting at Charlie's range since I moved to middle Tennessee 20 years ago. If I can claim any range as my "home range", it is this one. Nestled in the lush green rolling hills of Williamson County, this is the ideal outdoor shooting facility for me. It is small enough that you're remembered and welcomed by the proprietor, and big enough that you rarely have trouble finding a lane to shoot on. Add to this the fact that Charlie is just a fantastic human being and you have the perfect shooting facility. It feels a bit like telling the secret location of your favorite fishing hole, but I heartily recommend CHMR.
