POTD: Turning In My Issued Pistol- It May Have Been My Last

The Glock 17 Gen 5 MOS you see above was my last issued pistol, which I had to give up once I resigned after 15 years with my police department.

Strap 'Em In, Boys! NEW Safariland Solis Holsters for Glock G17 & G19

The Safariland Solis ALS Concealment OWB (Outside-the-Waistband) Holster is a simplistic-looking holster for gun owners, but it confidently falls into the universal category of “simple is best,” and the more hillbilly moniker of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Regardless of how you view a tried-n-true platform like the Safariland Solis, they are expanding their existing offerings to now include the ever-popular Glock G17 and G19.

My First Pistol Match: CMP Excellence In Competition .22LR and Service Pistol

POTD: G-Plated Glock 43X – Reptilia Corp

Photo Of The Day and let’s take a look at the Glock 43X and the Sig ROMEO Zero Elite in a marriage through Reptilia Corp‘s G-Plate. My history with my Glock 43 didn’t last too long. For sure it’s very compact, but I live in a country where carrying a firearm is not permitted unless it’s a very specific case (read: impossible). Also, the amount of handguns I’m allowed to own is limited, so I found something with a more competitive edge to replace it. I still miss it though, and I would have loved to try it with a red dot. So when I found these images, I thought they had to be shared.

TFB Review: G48 MOS – Could This Be Concealed Carry Perfection?

For quite a few years, I considered the Glock 19 to be the gold standard by which all concealed carry handguns should be measured. I carried the G19 almost exclusively – first a Gen 2 model, then I later updated to a Gen 4. Anytime I tried a different handgun, the question I always came back to was, “Taking all factors into consideration, from shootability and reliability to concealability and capacity, along with every other facet of everyday carry, would I rather use this gun than my G19?” While I tried out some excellent pistols, many of which were highly capable of sufficiently fulfilling that concealed carry weapon role, time after time I returned to my trusty Glock 19. After swapping out the sights for a set of Hackathorn-style aftermarket upgrades and housing the gun in a quality Kydex IWB holster, I called it good and never left home without it. Before the advent of the slim-frame revolution with models like the G43X and G48, along with other manufacturers’ takes on skinnier carry guns, this double-stack 15+1 9mm setup served me exceedingly well in a gamut of training classes and my everyday life.

TYPE-A EG-19 Pistol – First Impressions

Right before Christmas, I received an exciting call from my local FFL. They had just received a TYPE-A EG-19 with my name on it. Naturally, I dropped whatever “probably important” task I was doing at the time and rushed over there to see this beauty in person. Once I got to my destination and talked to the woman behind the counter, she then retrieved a Pelican case from the back of the store and placed it on the counter in front of me. At first, I thought she must have grabbed the wrong item but then when she unlatched the case and spun the opening to my view, I was delighted to see the EG-19 was within my grasp.
