I love Lumpia as well. Lol. My favorite store is Seafood city. Yummm

I use a bladetech doh holster. Plan is to run and gun this in uspsa production class. I already own a g22, and love the pistol. Opportunity from recoil gunworks and peer pressure made me purchase the Rtf. The trigger is pretty nice and i already installed my truglo fto, extended slide release.

The grip is grippier than the regular texture by far.

Is that what an RTF Glock is? I've been wondering about that.

You should not give in to peer pressure and your right those holster marks look horrible. I would hate to see what those holster marks look like at certain angles in full day light. Trigger probably all messed up too.

I hate to see you suffer DK. I will give you $100 for it!

LOL reality it is a thing of beauty!

Also basically yes (R)ough (T)exture (F)inish is what the rtf is about. Much more grippy. However what makes the rtf the op,DK, got is that it has the fish gills on the slide. Which is no longer being made by glock due to the high cost. Personally I think the "gills" are a thing of beauty but it is in the eye of the beholder.

What's more fun about shooting more expensive ammo that recoils more but gives no scoring advantage?

there's the fun.
no scoring advantage? yes.
ammo more expensive? yes, but not really by that much.
recoils more? sounds louder? yes and yes. that's probably why it's more fun to some shooters.

to some shooters, it's all about their own fun.

RTF is a short-lived gen3 Glock variant with a Rough Texture Frame. It is essentially a predecessor to the gen4 grip pattern (RTF used pyramid-square points, gen4 uses the RTF points with the top leveled off - square-prismoids). Some also had a different slide serration layout (curved; fish gills). AFAIK, this was mostly created for the LE market.

Feedback from this undoubtedly lead to the softer gen4 texture.

All i know is, it feels really good. Very grippy. I have sweaty hands and the grip helps alot.

Thanks! Yes tons of fun. I am looking for a 17 or 34 slide to use instead of the 40s. Til then i will be using the fishgill for newbie comp. I still need to practice, getting over a torn rotator cuff. I hope to compete or at least show up at Richmond to get some range time at the ap range.

Just take their 1 day competition class to be able to shoot matches.

Shooting slow-fire groups vs USPSA/IDPA are apples and oranges, but you'll find that out soon enough, and get a 9mm.
