  1. Is the G24 still around?



  2. I would consider some of the other 2011's first. Fit and finish are not what they advertised. CK, Lonestar, and Hayes customs. There is reason so many DVC's are for sale in the classifieds. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Don't do it! 2011s are great competition guns but not tactical guns. You don't just pull a 2011 out of the box and it's good to go. It needs gun smithing, they don't run dirty, magazines are finicky, and chambers don't like factory ammo, especially issued ammo. It sounds good even looks good, but it is bad decision. If the gun malfunctions in a match oh well; in real life you are black stripe on a badge. Now, if you're a desk jockey get an SV! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. But to say pistols are poor at stopping someone is inaccurate. Especially when that is all you have. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. So, based on your "available literature" what is good for stopping bad people doing bad things? What does guns and ammo say is the perfect one shot wonder? Because a .22 will kill/ stop very effectively if placed in the right spot, as will any caliber. The statement you made about 2-3 rounds is not based on caliber. It is absolutely based in accuracy, which leads back to training. Based on experience. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Keeping in mind you're not carrying your race gun... The easiest way to eliminate all conjecture, is go shoot them side by side. Use a 8x11 piece of paper. Shoot say 8rds (being fair to the .45) from the draw, as fast as possible. That will tell you everything you need to know. Hits are all that counts; more importantly critical hits.

  7. G24 has the longer sight radius vs. 35 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. completely agree!!! Bob Vogel shoots with a G24 the .40 version of the G17L! As for accuracy the Glock is extremely accurate. If you change the sights! The cost to run them is unmatched! Parts are everywhere! And you don't need to be a gun smith to fix them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. USAC isn't any better! I bought 2,000 rds of the new 9mm 124gr.. I can't tell you for certain if it was different lots due to ammo coming in bags that broke in shipping but did come in separate boxes. 1st 1,000 was good, then the 2nd 1,000 went to hell quickly. In a 1,000 rds had 15 squibs over 30 half charges. I have never seen that before. Below was when I took it range shoot the last of it up. There are 7 bullets I had to tap from my barrel; missing is # 8-9 the first two before I started my photo collection. Now, USAC did credit me a $100 back, but quality like that: way too little, way too late. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Sure as helluva a lot cheaper than a 2011. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. With the MPX lefties have equality, but I wish I could run my JP! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I am honestly ignorant to the PF game. What is E3? Every thing else I vaguely understand. What I do understand is the physics at play. What is your Muzzle velocity with that load? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You have a Gen 1, they are capable due to the gas port of shooting the 147gr. The Gen 2 guns not so much. I know guys who are using American Eagle 147gr. and +P ammos, with success. The funny part is the velocities they are running are closer to standard 115/124gr velocities. Again at that point what is the advantage!?! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I had same problem, the only thing I can figure is the gen 1 had slightly larger gas port than gen 2. Honestly, I have been running 115 and 124 with a lot of success. We want to run them like our pistols, for what reason? Especially if we are running longer barrels and muzzle brakes. 147gr in the MPX is not needed. We are not tricking out the springs yet! With the Lantac MB like our open gun brakes, operate better with hotter loads. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
