Happy 242nd Birthday tomorrow, Marines!
Isn’t the Army’s new M18 good enough for ‘em?
Its kind of a passive Guardian Angel-esque measure, Wade said. Certain Marines will be armed at all times.
This would be known as the Trump impact. Arming our military and certain Marines will be armed at all times.
Kid, you’re gonna shoot yer eye out with that thing.
We don’t need any more of the Army’s hand-me-downs.
Forty years ago we got their old 2 man sleeping bags. We never could figure out what we were supposed to do with them.
But, what about COLON Kaepernick?
Head, Jar Head......
Happy Birthday and Semper fi to my brother Marines!
Is Glock factory installing Ameriglo sights now? They’re across town from Glock USA, so it would make some sense. I know Ameriglo’s owner, he lives a couple miles away.
The Army grossly over-spec’d the M17/M18.
Pistols are the LAST weapon you’d want to have to use, but the Army put $600 million to this program and that doesn’t include all the precursor contests: Combat Pistol, Joint Combat Pistol, et al.
The Glock 19 was really the best all-around solution (IMHO) without the need for multiple aborted and unresolved RFPs and competitions. A simple, off-the-shelf solution that works marvelously everywhere its been tried.
My opinion, of course.
I’ve seen Glock 19 Gen 5’s with Ameriglo sights from a local gun shop. I called the shop the other day for a quote on one. I guess they’re being installed by Glock or a middleman.
I used to have an offer for his cost. I need to give him a list and sneak over to their shop and re-do the contents of the gun safe.
Hey, I’ll send you my list to add to yours. LOL
Glock 9 is a great gun. Not sure I’d call it slimmed down for CC. For someone with a big frame, yes. For smaller framed folks like myself, even inside the waist I am pretty sure it prints. But I’d rather have it print a little and have the large capacity mags than go slimmer and lose half the mag capacity.
Meh. I have a Ruger SR1911, and it’s plenty concealable!
Ameriglo sights are what the FBI wanted on their Glock M17s and M19s, and the Glock Gen 5s are just the FBI contract Glocks without the M rollmark.
Gen 5 Glocks are available with Ameriglo sights as optional, so you will see some Gen 5s with, and some without.
“Isnt the Armys new M18 good enough for em?”
No, that was a committee compromise, designed for doggies and chicks and other undesirable elements.
And this trendy appendix carry thing is idiotic. In the wold of people who have car wrecks, slip on the icy sidewalk, spill their coffee etc...pointing a pistol at your nuts, Mr. Johnson, and your femoral artery is looney.
I’d much rather get one in an ass cheek.
Bear Creek Arsenal just announced they are stocking JRC Carbines. Current ad has one in 10mm. Nice pair with the SR1911. Also offered in 45Auto.
