    What the hell?!? They just shipped another thing (USP Compact mags, I don't even own one [yet]).

    Maybe these are coming from different places, because they could've just thrown them in the same box.

    Well, well, well...

    Grabagun just shipped the Five-Seven 30 rounders.

    I don't want to jinx it but I like how things are going.

    Grabagun's gone silent. I think that's it for them.

    But I did find a place that's still taking orders for California and ordered the extra Glock 21 magazines I wanted!

    Aaaand again I spoke too soon. Grabagun just shipped the remainder of my first order, including the Glock 21 mags I just bought backups for 15 minutes ago. I could cancel the later order, but I think I'll just deal with having extras. :diacanu:

    So, G17, G20, and G21 are now covered as well. And I got a couple of more 92FS magazines, too.

    The only thing Grabagun hasn't shipped are the 20 round Five-Seven mags from the second order. I'm covered if they don't, but, at this point, I think they will.

    5 minutes to go until I bid sweet freedom adieu...

    There were some more things I could've picked up, but I think I'm more than adequately covered now. I toyed with getting some AK magazines and a 30 round Mini-14 magazine, but I've got plenty of the former and don't really need the latter for anything. I also passed on a 60 round AR drum magazine (I did get a 40-round PMAG just for fun and because f**k you, California).

    So, that's it.

    Beretta order arrived...

    2019-04-05_22.16.09.jpg

    Nifty flush-fitting 17 round magazine for my M9A1. In my day, Beretta 92s only held 15 in flush mags. Me likee; I got several.

    2019-04-05_22.17.08.jpg

    Probably not super-practical, but I got a 30 round magazine just for kicks.

    I also got several 20 round mags that don't stick out too much.

    Well, it's still grossly Californicated, but the new magazine evils it up nicely...

    Now you know what I deal with launching full-house .44 Magnums out of my 629 Mountain Gun's 4" barrel.

    As for the Glock talk, I'll be carrying a .357 too today. It'll just be my trusty 3" Model 65. You know, a real .357. :nyer: :bergman:

    Now that I've got a bunch of 33 round Glock magazines, I'm thinking the Ruger PC Carbine might be an interesting direction to take...

    Is it odd that my first reaction seeing that picture is that there's no way on earth that, that 1.25" dress belt holds that cross-draw holster and sidearm in place all day? He has to be constantly pulling up his pants all day every day.

    Cool, now you just need to cut that crap off the back of the pistol grip and give it that chainsaw attachment. ;)

    I've got a real-deal AR (and a bullet-buttoned one) that are grandfathered in by the AW laws, but I don't like to take them out to shoot since California creates a minefield of potential criminality around them. I got this one just to take to the range and to teach some friends to shoot with.

    When I bail on California, that ridiculous fin-grip will be excised forthwith.

    Yep, 'cause I'm all about being a gangsta.


    At least as gangsta as a pudgy white 50-year-old techbro from the suburbs can be.

    To riff on Lex Luthor from the original Superman...

    "Now, call me foolish, call me irresponsible, it occurs to me that a Ruger PC9 would be a handy, inexpensive carbine, especially if one were to possess 33 round Glock magazines..."

    PSX_20190420_153605.jpg

    But where would I find such magazines? :thinking:

    So, that's a long gun for June in the pipeline. Because the combination of home repairs, car repairs, and March Magazine Madness meant deferring April's purchases, May's guns (my birthday guns!) will be the Sig P229 and the Marlin 1894 previously mentioned.

    Handgun for June will undoubtedly be a Glock (19, 21, 22 or 23).

    Then the Gun-of-the-Month Club goes on sabbatical while I save for this year's vacation.

    A Glock 19 is in the queue.

    400 grain hardcast bullet at 1800 feet per second? 2878 ft-lbs?

    Probably a bit on the, uh, "stout" side.

    Glock 19 (in OD green!) now has a nice, warm forever home.

    PSX_20190619_114241.jpg

    When I bought my first Glock waaaay back ('91 or so), I got the full-size 17 (and later the 20). I didn't see the point of the smaller Glocks; couldn't carry them, and they had less capacity.

    But I'm starting to see why the 19 is so popular. It really is just about the right size: not any bigger than what is really needed. The size trade-off with capacity seems worthwhile; for most practical CCW purposes, 15 shots is really not much of a diminishment from 17.

    Picked up the Marlin carbine as well. But now GotM is going on vacation...literally. I hope to pick back up later this year.

    Carried a 19 for a while, could throw that sucker in my pocket if I had to. Now I have a fancy little alien gear IWB rig for my 31.
