I am a bit nervous about cleaning my Glock 19... I have watched videos and such on proper gun cleaning, yet, I still have the feeling I am gonna mess it up somehow... I can take apart, and put back together the firearm with my eyes closed, but cleaning it is where I get iffy.

 

Is there any info that you guys could give me to help me not worry as much about cleaning it incorrectly? Could you recommend any specific products that you use and swear by? Thanks for any help

I just use Ballistol. You can get it off amazon. It's a cleaner and a lube in one, also works nice on wood too. And really it doesn't harm your gun to just hose it down, just mop it up a bit after but don't worry about it being wet in places as it won't rust it. I just wouldn't recommend spraying the striker assembly. Also just make sure the barrel is cleared out. Usually with a glock you don't even really need to clean it. Just get a 9mm bronze brush and just give it a few pullthroughs now and again and wipe off crap with a towel or rag and it should be fine for a while. I just learnt as I went.

I am considering getting a firearm since there seems to be a lot of thieves and undesirables in my neighborhood lately, and since the sheriff doesn't seem to care to do anything about them I just want to make sure that my family and I are safe. Especially since the same guy who stole my sisters cell phone tried to break into my neighbors houses and cars and when he was caught in the act and had the sheriff called on him he threw a brick into the windshield of my neighbors car. He was apparently arrested and then released and only given a citation or something.

 

Anyway, I'm starting to study this. http://oag.ca.gov/sites/all/files/agweb/pdfs/firearms/forms/hscsg.pdf

Good on you. Something a lot of people tend to forget (or not even know) is that the police have no duty to protect you, and that they are minutes (or even hours) away when seconds count.

If you're interested in a concealed carry permit, then I hope for your sake that you don't live in southern California. They're a real bitch to obtain down there unless you're a retired LEO, from what I hear.

Unfortunately for me southern California is exactly where I live.

Ah, that sucks. Best of luck to you, man.

E: Didn't want to double post, so I'll just add on to this comment. Figured I might as well share another firearm of mine: a Smith & Wesson Model 66-1, chambered in .357 Magnum.

A gorgeous piece of '80s memorabilia that can hardly be appreciated through the lens of a camera. I threw on the original grips for photo purposes (normally keep Hogue rubber grips on it otherwise).

Its only a pipe dream as of now, but somewhere next year I'm hoping I can save up for a PTR 91. What's really interesting about them is they're a pretty well made clone of the H&K G3 rifle and can even accept surplus parts.

New holster arrived yesterday, took them around a week to make it and customize it to my specific gun and laser sight and it was only $70 i like it a lot.

 

It's semi-reverse able in a way it can be used both IWB/OWB which i like but some of my shorts aren't big enough to allow me to always carry IWB.

As much as i liked the holster i bought from Hidden Hybird i had to return it, the shell was too tight around the gun and took a good amount of force to get it to pull out which also pulled my shorts up as i tried to pull it out making t even harder, i tried using some lubrication but to no avail so i returned it for another one this one from Alien Gear also though the one from HH was both IWB/OWB and i really liked it was too dangerous in case of life and death situation.

 

Here is my new holster from Alien Gear this one is exclusively OWB

Went to the shooting range today with my Yugo m57 tokarev and Walther P1. Oddly enough I was kind of sucking when firing two handed and starting doing better when I switched to one handed.

Totally forgot about this thread.

Nice vids.

 

Being in the UK, where the "realest" firearm I ever shot was a .22 rifle, I used to shoot a few air pistols during my younger years. Obviously there's a bit of a difference between a pellet and a bullet being shot, but I also found shooting a pistol one-handed yielded better results when aiming for a target than double-handed.

It's so unrealistic to see people on the forums having so much weapons, I think I never touched an gun or rifle in my entire life but that's probably because Dutch weapons laws are very strict haha.

Haven't been on here for a while.

 

Picked up a S&W 637 for a new carry gun. It is just a lot easier than the Glock or XDm.

637_zpsgyp8whfs.jpg

 

 

Also picked up a single barrel breakover 12 guage a couple weeks ago. I really didn't need another shotgun, but walmart has these for $99 and that is just too damn cheap to pass up.

Hatfield2_zpstsdzi1rd.jpg

 

I liked the way it folded up too.

Hatfield1_zpsrrgppusa.jpg

 

It had the worst, heaviest trigger I've ever felt though.

Found that the hammer spring comes back and is screwed into a tang inside the buttstock. Backed the screw out to where it was flush to the bottom of the tang. That helped a lot. Still sh*tty, but took several pounds off the pull.

 

Cut the barrel down to just a hair under 19.5" and blued the end.

Gonna use it for a truck gun.

...also about a month ago I added an adjustable cheek rest to my .308. It made a world of difference in my groups.

Those are nice.

 

Nothing beats a cheap and cheerful gun that is almost disposable-like.

 

In other news, I just saw this:

 

 

 

The f*cker is unreal, he wasn't this good in the first John Wick, the next movie should be interesting...

Seen the Keanu vid before. It's pretty terrific. The first John Wick movie was awesome, I just hope they don't screw it up with the 2nd.

So I had my first squib load yesterday shooting my revolver.

 

Factory Fiocchi .38 Special. Felt like I only shot the primer, decided to check just in case, f*cking good thing I did, the bullet was stuck half an inch from the end of the barrel. Got a cleaning rod and a mallet and got all ready to nail this thing out. And it just fell through when I poked it...

The PTR-91 mentioned way back in august is one I'd definitely like to try. I always liked the G3/CETME rifles and it seems like a good full power rifle to use. Being fortunate to live near a flea market, theres always people selling firemars (usually .22s and cheapo bolt actions). One time I spotted a K98k and a Mosin stock for pretty cheap (both looked WWII era by how worn and used they looked). Buying a stock like that and building from a parts kit seems like it would be an interesting experience, even if it doesn't turn out to be a good shooter in the end :)

Finally got round to shooting a Lee Enfield MkIII the other day, noice as f*ck. Only shot the .22LR trainers up until then.

 

In other news, I think I found a new candidate for best looking handgun ever.

 

Do want.

 

 

Also, insanely impressive performance:

 

Basically unstoppable, switch to semi and it works flawlessly...

Anything in 9mm or below I suppose. On the the other hand, revolvers are far more simplistic in handling and disassembly than a semi automatic.

Couldn't agree more there.

 

A revolver is probably the easiest thing to understand short of a break action shotgun. It only has two things to be aware of. Opening the cylinder out, and pulling the trigger. That's it. Don't have to worry about anything with that and you don't ever have to strip it in any way, just clean it as it is. A .22LR or .38 Special one would be perfect.

 

On the side of semi autos, obviously a Glock would be an easy choice, just because it is now the industry standard and simple enough for anyone. Though classic old .22LR semi autos are good too. Or even something like a Makarov or Walther PPK given you know what ammo type you are buying.

 

But the revolver would be the best, you don't need to know anything to run one of those. And ammo wouldn't be fussy, if it doesn't fit in the chamber then it wont work. Anything less and it will still fire it, even .22 CB's which can turn your gun into an airgun basically. I bought some the other day, they are a giggle.

So I've been seeing some surplus Browning High Powers floating around gunnroker lately and I've been considering trying to buy one before they all dry up as with any surplus stuff. If anything I would try customizing it to look like some of the original production.

I have an FN produced HP.

The hammer bite makes it unshootable.

Unshootable.
