Yup. Blue label deal. On another note, yesterday, movers dropped my 1,200 pound safe onto my driveway

Ha! Nice deal. I paid $700 for mine the day before Malloy signed our rights away. It was the last one in the state I could find and the shop owner knew it.

Like most here I have shot a lot of different hand guns. For the range the a CZ 75 (or a quality clone) is hard to beat. The Ergonomics and Trigger are top notch. Glock style pistols are nice but are better for duty/carry than for range guns because of their double action style of trigger.

Double Action? with a 3.0-5.5lb trigger pull?

Correct. Most Glocks come stock with a 5.5lb trigger bar that can be swapped out for a lighter 3.5lb if you want.

But the trigger is still a long double action similar in function to a revolver except a Glock is striker and not hammer fired.

Glocks perform two actions when you pull the trigger: cock the striker spring, and release it. that technically classifies it as double action.

It's what makes them so great for carry.

A good DA/SA (CZ) or SA only (1911) will be better for a range gun in my opinion. It's just easier to shoot well with some practice.

^^I agree with your assertion about Glocks being great for carry, but for a slightly different reason. I prefer the simplicity of one trigger pull, no safety and the lighter weight of the polymer gun while strapped to my hip.

There's nothing wrong with a DA/SA or SA pull for carry, it's merely a training factor. For me, glocks purely out of personal preference.

I understand what you are saying, but it is hardly the same as the DA portion of most DA/SA pistols.

I agree 100%. Glocks are awesome firearms. I have owned both a G22 and G36. Great all around guns.

Glocks are just fine for range guns. The trigger is consistent, it's predictable in performance, and it allows for a much better trigger pull than any DA/SA trigger. While it does perform a double action, the actual cocking of the striker is generally imperceptible because the travel is so short. Glocks do very well on the range and have been winning competitions for decades.

this, really like my Sig 226. But if you don't get the elite model, replace the trigger with the SRT immediately.

Forget those nickel plated sissy guns and get yourself a GLOCK.

Do people really just buy a pistol to play with at the range?

What's on your nightstand?

I'd go for a competition style pistol from glock,Springfield,or S&W and maybe start shooting some competitions.
