I have a Glock in .45 ACP...how did they get it to do that?
Ive been thinking about getting one, how much?Gotta link?
Haha, sorry, mine's not for sale. My dad keeps it as his home defense gun at the moment and I'll use it as mine when I have a place worth protecting.
It'd still be interesting to see how they modified it though. Pop a different slide on and go have some fun at the range.
No, I just meant how much did you pay and were at???
That thing looks pretty much worthless, except maybe for scaring the piss out of someone, or hitting everything except what you're aiming at. Look carefully at the targets after he shoots, nothing.
It's a model 21C, .45 ACP with a compensator. I wanted one that wasn't ported but Glock was way behind on producing them at the time and it would have been another couple of months so I figured I could just deal with the flash.
It was $460 at Scheels if my memory serves me correctly. There are several things I don't like about it however.
#1. There is no true safety.
#2. It has a very awkward balance because of the construction. The gun is extremely accurate but it's hard to get used to shooting it, especially after I go through a couple of magazines with my 1911.
#3. The trigger on the model 21 is double action only, leading to a crappy feel.
Overall, I wouldn't buy it for a strictly pleasure gun. I bought mine with home defense and/or concealed carry in mind someday. It would work awesome for either (provided you're big enough to conceal a full frame pistol) but it just isn't a gun that I have a ton of fun with on the weekends.
Sorry, just my .03.
That was exactly the response I was looking for...
glock makes them for law enforcement/military only if I'm not mistaken. the general public is SOL.
That looks strikingly similar to the one R. Lee Ermey had on Mail Call.
It's a Glock 18, and NC87K5 is partially correct military and law enforcement and those with class 3 licenses, comes in 9mm
Class 3 license, what is that exactly? What are the other classes? Does this apply to security personnel or something?
I don't know the exact stipulations of a class 3 but basically it allows you to own fully automatic firearms.
The word "license" is a misnomer kind of. When you buy any controlled weapon (full auto, sawed off shotgun, supressed weapons, etc) you must pay $200 for a license for that particular weapon. (You need another one for each you purchase.) They do a FBI background check, make sure you're not a looney, and you have to have your chief of police sign a paper that they know you have it. It gives up your right to unlawful search for that weapon, because the police can show up any time and ask to see it if they have probable cause to suspect that it was involved in a crime. (That's not as big a problem in more gun friendly states out west, but owning such weapons in Ohio is uncommon.)
you guys are right, I forgot the class 3 license.
Why learn to shoot when you can spray and pray.
