    New Glock 22 LR - G44

    Some magazines set the top round relatively point down and that leads to an incorrect angle towards the feed ramp. I've remedied this by tipping the top round up manually. YMMV
  2. I had a Victory and it was very reliable - shot just about anything. It was also accurate and didn't cost a fortune. Upgraded triggers, etc.are available. The ergonomics weren't right for me and so I sold it to a friend but if the ergonomics work for you it's a good way to go.
  3. Not likely you'll tell a trauma surgeon, or any other surgeon, what to do. They know when to take it out and when to leave it in. I'm in the biz and have seen most bullet frags left in unless they are close to the spinal cord or a major vessel.
  4. Sounds promising although it was all in peds. It sounds like it's (relatively) risk free. The std surgical procedure really turned things around for strabismus. Do you do the procedures?
  5. I know what you mean. Having been through all the stuff you describe as a kid - eye therapy sessions with 3D images, etc. - I can usually get through the eye exam at the motor vehicle dept. knowing what I'm SUPPOSED to see. I get a letter from my ophthalmologist if needed. I've been around academic medicine my whole career and whenever the eye doc sees me he/she calls in the medical students. "You may never see this again." I should send them a bill for my services.
  6. I also have double vision. I've just learned to live with it. Interesting enough in my case is that visual acuity in my non-dominant eye - the one that does not properly localize an object - is better than my dominant. The surgery you describe was developed at Univ. of Iowa but long after my childhood. I didn't know it was a viable tx for older adults. I've already had 3 surgeries during my childhood so they may not like all the scar tissue they would have to work through.

    Gen 3 17

    What didn't you like? I have the Overwatch triggers on several Glocks and really like them.

    New Glock 22 LR - G44

    It is more the rule than the exception that semiauto 22's won't function with all ammo. It's usually not a big deal as long as you can get the ammo it runs on.

    Gen 3 17

    I've tried a ton of connectors in my gen 3 G17's. My game gun has a oem (-) and carry guns have stock connectors. They are all crisp and many of the aftermarket ones were not. In any case, oem connectors are inexpensive to try out. There is a thread somewhere where a lot of people weigh in on their connector experiences. They end up being like holsters. You try a lot of them.
  10. So that's where I am!
  11. Where is SW Missouri? I'm in Springfield. Moved last year from central Wisconsin. Love it here.

    Sights for old eyes

    I'm not clear on the question. Identifying the threat is different business than i.d. front sight. Have you had any formal PD training? It's different than competition and worth it if you carry. (This is a competition website, not defensive shooting, and a moderator should give us the go-or-no-go before we wander too far with this.)

    Dealing with the issue of "no glasses" is common in defensive training. It's a Murphy's Law thing. Dry fire is the solution so that he gun automatically goes where you are looking. Also, one of my instructors (Ranger sniper) pointed out that at typical defensive pistol distances you won't even be looking for a sight picture. You will have your attention, eyes included, on the threat. Physiologically all you will get, at best, is a flash sight picture. It's different, at least for him, when distances open up (think rifle). The Big Dots I looked at serve the purpose and I know one guy who was pretty accurate with them albeit with his glasses on. I like the phosphorescent paint thing. I can use existing sights and they really don't interfere much with my usual shooting. One of my instructor said they are the ugliest sights he's seen but he has perfect vision. Wait until he gets older. If I ever find a Steel Challenge club in my new home of southern Missouri, I'm thinking of trying my painted irons just to keep in practice. Should be good enough at SC distances. If you try painting your front sight, you will see how the sight really jumps out at you. Just remember phosphorescent and not fluorescent paint on a white base.

    You might not have your glasses available, can't find them, dropped them, got them knocked off, etc, etc.

    But put a white base coat on first. The whole project is dirt cheap and reversible. Phosphorescent sights are way brighter than FO but precision shooting will not be its forte.
