anybody back to Glock after CZ / Tanfo ?

Recommended Posts

Anybody decided to go back to  Glock

after shooting a CZ / Tanfo platform?

 

My classifier scores telling me, that for me Glock (G34) was the way to go. 

I was fast but relatively speaking inaccurate with the Glock    

With my Stock2 I am just slow....

 

( also my training was focusing to shoot classifiers well with my Glock

Currently with the Stock 2 I am focusing on other things....)

 

Glocks just transition much faster without thinking  about transitioning fast. (for me anyways)

They load faster on the way in, not when it comes dropping the magazine though ....

 

Stock 2 is just easier to shoot it accurately- without thinking too much about accuracy ( in my humble opinion....)

 

I always had the sensation that my G34 shoots softer than my Stock2 with the same load. 

I had the feeling that the polymer frame just dumpers the recoil better. 

I am talking about minor ( production) load and shooting here. Limited major would be a different story...

 

thanks,

I've shot them all.  I'm currently shooting a Glock 34. My only complaint about Glocks is the plastic mags create more friction and can get hung up easier if you don't hold the gun vertically when dropping the mag. Ignore anyone telling you to do the "wrist flick". In fact if someone say that to me I ignore anything they say after that. 

 

The triggers aren't as nice as a good SA but that's not really a big deal. 

 

I personally don't hang up on this gun is better than that gun for transitions, draws or reloads. I just want reliable, accurate and then I get used to the gun. 

 

Glocks are fine. 

 

So is everything else. 

 

I'd say your classifiers aren't telling you anything that pertains to the gun. If you're inaccurate, that's probably you. If you're slow, again probably you. That's just my opinion.  I've been down this road. Thinking maybe this gun will do one thing better, or it is faster. I've come to the opinion that there's not a perfect gun. There are several really really good ones though!

Yep, what B-rad said.  And two years ago lim nats was won with a glock shooting major, so it seems they can do that pretty well too

My experience is that as shooters improve they find the advantages of a "better"? trigger system to be less and less important to their shooting, basically once you learn how to pull a trigger correctly "better" triggers are more of a preference point vs a performance improvement.

The gun doesn't matter, within reason.

Within reason= nothing dumb, like a hipoint or a compact carry-type gun. Almost any full size duty style gun will not hold you back.

Yep. The longer I shoot, the better I get, the less I care about things like a “better” trigger.

I spent 2+ years on a G34. Got sucked in to the Tanfo magic and after 3 matches went back to Glock. Not sure what all the fuss is about. It was a nice gun, but not nice enough to sit in the safe if I wasn't using it.

Same here with a brief stint in between with Walther for optic.

M&P to Glock for C>O because the MOS made it simple.

Then to Tanfo, same time picked up a SIG 320 RX.

Tanfo seemed problematic with oal length on loads and other temperamental things.

Went to the SIG 320RX and basically stayed there and an X-5 for back up, yeah shoot the RX better on the clock than the X-5.

 

As stated above all the stuff, is just that stuff, shoot the gun and get good with it and that's that!

1911s, SIGs, CZs, Glocks, Tanfos.  I’ve wasted a bunch of money searching for the “right” gun.  I should have spent it on practice ammo instead.

No truer words ever spoken. I’d have more money and probably be a little better shooter.

have to agree .  After sticking with a glock long enough to master the trigger and grip , its hard to shoot anything as good

I have been thinking about going back to Glock for optics division from my Tanfo Stock 3. I really like how well and naturally Glock points for me, but I do appreciate the weight of my Tanfo during recoil. My splits are faster and I am generally more accurate with the 2.5lb ish SA trigger. However transitions and getting on the target feels faster with the Glock. I wish the Glock had a little bit more weight to it's frame.

The "work" one has to do to score well is the same. To me, "how" I do it is performed differently. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with many of the choices for Prod. (Some, but not most). You just have to know your own strengths and weaknesses so you properly apply that info to your work and equipment.

I tried a Shadow 2 for 4 months recently. It was really nice. Had I started on that type of platform 20 years ago, had multiple models, and parts, skills to work on it Etc..the way I am with Glocks, I’d certainly have stuck with it.

 

Just no magic there though. I thought I’d see improvement from the extra weight and better trigger very soon but I did not. Got offered $100.00 less than what I paid for it in a weak moment at the range, and off it went.

 

in a way I wish I’d kept it, but playing with two such different platforms has never produced good results for me.

SIGS, 226, da/sa, sao, 1911’s, M-P, XDM, and now after years of back and forth still shoot Glock better at games, IDPA, USPSA than any of the others on a consistent basis. So I selling off my fleet, and buying more ammo.
