Re: roll pin punch

Glock "Disassembly Takedown Tool" ... Amazon; $6.00 It's all you'll ever need. Front sight tool (wrench) also $6 bucks.. The takedown tool is what you use to pop the base plates off magazines (i.e. if you are adding Pierce or other +2). I would send you a picture of it but the site won't l...

Re: Range Catch 22

Warnmar10, you nailed exactly who I was talking about. Eagle should have gotten the message about this guy a long time ago but he was still there last time I was in the place, and still doing his best to intimidate anyone who failed to properly salute him. He must be somebody's brother in law or a s...

Re: Texas Carry Executive Director sued for filing signage complaint against Waller County

Every story says this decision is going to "cost the county".... NO it is going to cost the taxpayers. The county is not a profit making business it is a political entity that levies a tax on every business and citizen in Waller County, as well as receives grants from the state treasury. T...

Range Catch 22

Have an adult daughter (She's in her 50's I'm well into my 70's) she wants me to teach her to shoot. I don't particularly want to have to drive to Arkansas or Louisiana in search of open land to pin a target to a tree, but the indoor ranges close to me in Carrollton/Lewisville/Flower Mound will not ...

Re: Chronic Problems

My motives were good but the result has shown mixed success. I was/am trying to use the 19/22 to "introduce" a Glock to my kids and grand kids. One of my daughters flinches so badly when shooting my 26 or 19 she doesn't even hit the target much less the body mass outline, about half the ti...

Chronic Problems

Disclosure: I've also posted this in the GlockTalk forum.. I need ideas. Four years ago I bought an Advantage Arms .22 conversion kit and assembled it on a new Glock 19 Gen 3 Lower. From the first box of ammunition to the latest box I have tried to run through it I have experienced at least one stov...

Re: Dash Cam

I went the opposite direction and got a $20 dollar dashcam from Fry's. Spent another 7 bucks for a 30 Gig memory card and plugged it in to the lighter socket..automatically comes on when I turn the key. It works great, mounts with a suction cup on windshield, swivels at the touch of a finger records...

Re: Replacing sights on Springfield XD9

Thanks folks, I appreciate your suggestions. I did take the XD9 to one Gunsmith who would not accept the gun because he could not promise not to scratch or gouge it when removing the old sights. I think shipping the slide to Springer may be the smartest move. According to other owners, the Springfie...

Re: Replacing sights on Springfield XD9

Thanks Dan, I have this same pusher but the small anchor blocks have not been tapered to the shape of the XD slide. This is the first edition Sub Compact, not the Mod2. I guess I was hoping there might be some "trick" that I've been missing, like a taper in the dimensions of the mounting c...

Replacing sights on Springfield XD9

Replacing factory sights on my Springfield XD9 Sub Compact and having a terrible time getting the old rear sight off. Mechanical sight pusher will not budge it, and light to moderate tapping with jewler's hammer and brass punch will not move it. I have replaced identical slide-in sights on several G...
