Happiness is a Warm Gun

Photo Glock 19 by KLaFaille

This past Saturday I finally got around to doing something I’ve been meaning to do for a long time. I went to a gun range and fired some pistols. Before heading to the range, I spent several hours doing classroom instruction from a certified NRA instructor. I should be getting my NRA Basic Pistol certification (or is it a card?) in the mail soon.

At the range, I fired two 9MM (Ruger and Glock), a 22 and a .40 caliber Glock. The 22 was too small for my hand, but I enjoyed the others. Someone recently asked me if there was any other reason besides weight lifting on why one would would do grip strength training. Shooting a .40 caliber Glock might be a reason. Maybe being able to close a 167.5 pound Captains of Crush single handed helped me handle that Glock? Couldn’t have hurt.

  1. I have the Glock 19 and Ruger 22. Both great guns. I usually carry the Glock on road trips but for home protection I prefer the Remington 870 express with double 00.

  2. Love the Glocks. Just fired a .40 Glock for the first time a week or two ago. I really want to try a Sig soon. I hear they are fun to shoot.
