Military and Law Enforcement / Re: Would you change?
« Last post by Doug Wojtowicz on Today at 07:04:30 PM »
An advantage of the 41 Slide over the 21 Slide - the 41 is as wide as a 17 slide. (And the 41 came right off the bat as Gen 4, and thus had "small" backstraps too.

Then again, I'd roll out with a Glock 34 or Glock 35 over the 17 or 22... just with not the flinch-easy trigger. :/

Hi.  My name's Doug, and I'm an "odd slide length addict." (Happier with 6 or 4 inch 1911 barrels on a 1911.)

.357Sig ammo was becoming more expensive and harder to find.

As for the 41 over the 21, the boss simply liked the longer slide of the G41. Of the two, I was in favor of the 21. I was also in favor of the G17 as were many other officers due to controllability, ammo capacity, a moo availability, and smaller officers not having the meat hooks for the grip on a .45ACP Glock.

When I get back I'm going to propose going a policy similar to the US National Park Service policy of allowing whatever model Glock within certain caliber ranges. The NPS allows its LEO rangers to carry whatever model of SIG as long as it falls within the 9mm, .45ACP, or .40S&W range due to varying sizes of its personnel across the country.

I was wondering if it was the ammo itself or if y'all were unhappy with it.

I actually like that policy and think it's a good one.

Any specific reason y'all went with the Glock 41 over the 21? And the reason y'all went away from the .357 SIG?

This is the most Texan thing ever. He helped his neighbours, got whataburger, and drove his tractor through the drive through.

Excellent question that we've been wrestling with here at my agency.

My chief and I and several others are 1911 fanboys. However, as much as we love them we also realize that over half the run-of-the-mill officers will not maintain a 1911 regardless of inspections, etc. They need a Glock that can be rained on, sweated on, shat upon etc. in all weathers and still function. It's especially important in the Smoky Mountains which are a temperate rainforest in the summer months. We also get a fair amount of snow and sleet in the winter so we decided to stick with Glock and ultimately went with the G41. I'll continue to carry a 1911 off duty but the Glock line is best for our duty carry here.

Any specific reason y'all went with the Glock 41 over the 21? And the reason y'all went away from the .357 SIG?

Activism and Gun Politics / Re: Any incipient panic buying in your AO?

yep---figured that if any panic buying started anywhere, better chance to get a heads up--and not be left staring at empty shelves

hope I didn't start a self-fulfilling question  :facepalm
No, you're fine.  There is a world of difference between panic buying and seeing the writing on the wall, and buying proactively.  If it starts looking like a Clinton landslide, I will up my buying on a few items.  Not because I fear a ban, but because I recognize the type of shortages that will result, because of the actions of those who do.

Quite honestly, I probably wouldn't change much.

1. Springfield TRP or even just a Mil-Spec 1911 with ambi safety (the standard is a b____ for a left-hander)

2. M1A.  Wouldn't be as fancy as the one I've got for a while, but I'd get it back there.

3. .30-30 for hunting/wolf-whacking (there's a pack apparently frequenting the area around the house)

4. (The first departure) .44 Magnum or heavy-duty .45LC for a bear gun.

5. A good .300 WinMag bolt gun for the long range itch (I've got a .338 Lapua, but damn, that stuff's expensive)
