If we could hit a "like" button in CFOT, it would have just been.

I carry a Glock for work, am a certified armorer and firearms instructor. I wasn't a fan before I started working in law enforcement but they will grow on you. I call them the Toyota Camry of guns. Not exciting but they will get you home every day and they keep getting better.

I am building a custom Glock 19 on a laser-stippled/cerakoted Blown Deadline frame right now.

I agree. I 'had" the 35 and hated it. I was extremely disappointed with the accuracy and wasted $100's of dollars on trying to find the best ammo it liked. I do have some striker fired pistols. They are "ok".

There is a reason that MARSOC Marines (whose official sidearm is a Colt 1911), vanilla SEALS, and Army Delta (CAG) Operators carry Glocks when they could carry just about anything they wanted. Glocks are though, have great capacity, and are “combat” accurate. A Glock can continue to run with very little care or cleaning, and will even fire and cycle underwater. There’s a million Glock Haters out there, but I’ll stick with what’s been proven time and again by Special Operations Forces.

I keep going to the gun shop with plans on picking up my first Glock. I keep coming home with another CZ instead.

P365 in CA? for the masses, or just exempt classes?

Neither the Sig P365 nor the Gen 5 Glock 17 MOS are on the California roster.

Seals have carried HK, SIG mostly in recent years!

I personally like the 10mm round for every reason!

I do see in 2016, the G19 Compact was a choice as a backup by Seals! It looks like it has a 4 inch barrel, 21 Oz w/o mag, 9 oz more with loaded mag!

So I said recent just above, 2016 they still used Sig 226s and .45 cal HKs! This was replacing the Sig. As a lighter weight backup, sounds like a choice! Weight is important too!

They are certainly well built. But I could never shoot them well. And I tried many. The grip angle always had me shooting high. My poor body is too used to the 1911-type grip angles and every time I tried to shoot a Glock, my rounds would sail right over the top of whatever I was trying to hit.

The vanilla teams carried SIGs, but are transitioning to the Glock 19. The colored teams carried the HK-45c.

Here’s some photos I took from a team armory before the transition to Glock’s.

Like I said, the colored teams carry the HK-45c. The vanilla teams never did. Some of the vanilla team snipers did carry the HK MK 23 Mod 0, but really it was too heavy to be favored by operators.

I have two 10mms, a Glock 20 and a Colt Delta Elite. I personally dislike the cost of reloading 10mm, having to chase down the 10mm brass, and the relatively slow follow-up shots. I'd take a .45 ACP or 9mm any day over a 10mm, and that's coming from someone who has actually spent a lot of time on the 10mm platform.

The 10mm takes a lot of range time to get the candance for accuracy. My spring in the 10mm is double any of my other autos. I shot .45 in Open class just for that touch more control, thus accuracy on plates, targets, but in combat I could get torso more than adequately cycling a 10mm. A faster round, more range, and heavy enough grain, for guaranteed lethality!

The science of subsonic 9mm is pretty refined! I tuned for subsonic in my 9mm. That is all I run now in that caliber. I am watching videos now on sub 10! Interesting!

The ole M79 still loved! I probably shot that very one you pictured!

I doubt that. You may have fired a blooper on SCI, but not that one.

I was assigned as Seal Support with Team 3 in 1985. They had some back then, that were thought to be from the Vietnam era!

The 10mm is a big frame full sized pistol round! If you soften up the charge, then you mine as well shoot 9mm! But you can charge a 9mm too hot for a lot of light and compact 9mms guns, and still have a recoil problem! The 10mm outperforms a .45 in every category, except recoil basically! In heavy round 25 yard distance, the .45 is king!!!! I love it! But push out to 50 yards, I’ll take the 10mm. In close quarter, you have over penetration is one argument against it! Thus not the best choice for a defensive round! So if I loaded one for that, I would leave it ready with a lighter grain hollowpoint, and less charge!
