Default Bought the new Gen 5 Glock 17

After another mishap at the range today with the Taurus 1911 ( more jams even with the new Wilson Combat magazine, Plus the icing on the cake was the thumb safety just fell off the gun ) - I went and bought the Glock.
Much better in terms of accuracy and function. Had zero jams in the first 50 rounds fired ( compared to the 5+ jams plus the love round getting stuck in the barrel of the 1911 ).
The Glock is 9mm So itís much easier and fun to shoot as well. Very awesome gun and will be my EDC. When the 1911 comes back from Taurus from warranty Iíll most likely just sell it.

The Holy Bible has fewer words and pages compared to the New Jersey gun laws.

One of the main reasons I moved to AZ. Open and concealed carry with or without a permit.

Plus you can walk into any Bass Pro, Cabelas, etc. and walk out with a handgun AND ammo the same day. All you need is a valid AZ drivers license, fill out this thing online that your basically not a felon or not here illegally, ( pass a criminal background check basically ) and your in.

I've already purchased two since I've been here ( the Glock and the 1911 ) along with tons of ammo - which, BTW is super cheap at wally world.

Love it!

I wish NJ would loosen up. But it is evident that a relo of some sort is going to be mando. Fosho!

Iíve got about 1500 rounds through her. Zero malfunctions. Absolutely love it. Highly recommended too. Apparently the brand new Gen 5ís did away with the half moon shaped cutout by the mag well, and they also added front as well as rear slide serrations. Looks amazing.

I forgot you guys have paperwork to do. Friggen Jersey.
I’ve since added a new desert eagle .50 ( picked it up from my local FFL last week for my birthday ), a Sig P365, glock 22 ( my duty gun ) and I think that’s about it lol

Remember - the more gun laws we have in place - the harder it will be for the criminals to get them.


Or so that’s what their logic is LOL
