Well, it's my first Glock purchase and actually the first time I purchased a handgun instead of doing a PPT.

Where'd you find ammo?

Go shoot it and report!

I found 20 rounds of HD stuff in Orange, and luckily another calgunner picked me up 200 rounds of practice stuff from Del Mar which I'll get tomorrow from him.

I'm planning on going to that tacshoot on the 2nd, but I would like to put at least 20 rounds through it prior to going so I know how it handles.

Nice G20 and good find on the ammo. Just curious - how much is a box of 10mm going for these days? I don't see them in my local Wal-Mart stores.

I picked up some HD stuff at $38 for 20 rounds. Which is all I needed to have a functional HD gun. Someone on the forums here saw I needed ammo so when they were at the Del Mar show they grabbed me 200 rounds for $108.

So far I've installed a Jentra plug, extended slide lock, and soon the trigger connector I bought. I still have an extended slide release on order.

Congrats. I just got a 20SF. I love it, especially with the KKM .40S&W barrel.

Is that the SF?

No, not the SF. I have large hands.

Well, finally shot her. We rented a G17, and a G35. I must say, I liked the feel of the G20 much better. The large grips felt good and I had no problems placing my shots. After 150 rounds I was just getting going and I can't get enough.

Aren't those the same thing ...or am I missing something?

Did you mean extended slide lock and extended mag release?

Slide lock lets the slide be removed, the slide release lets you drop the slide when reloading.

Or something like that... Different sites mix the names and I ordered the wrong parts once already because of that.

Nice Glock20.. BTW, where'd you get the target?

Firing Line in Northridge. They had tons of 10mm ammo, I shot 150 and took another 150 home with me.

Nice! I am guessing you are going to be reloading now?

You mean the "takedown lever". You use the takedown lever to remove the slide from the frame.

Slide lock "locks" the slide back. Hence the name. It was my understanding that the slide lock lever was not meant to be used as a slide release. That's why it's so difficult to use the stock slide lock as a slide release.

I know...it's late and I'm being picky.

But KUDOS on the 10mm. My favorite round!!!

I'll be saving my brass and eventually reload...
