I have been trying to explain to my revolver friends why exactly I bought a Glock 24 to compete with, and what was going through my head when I shot it. Well, after shooting it at Friday Night Steel, I can’t tell you what was going through my head when I shot it, but I can tell what was going on afterwards. It mostly consisted of the mental version of an endzone dance, as I kept thinking how awesome this gun was.
The Trijicon sights were probably the highlight for me, as they stood out crisp and clear and were bright enough to allow for extremely quick acquisition of my sight picture during rapid shooting. The long slide and ported barrel made recoil with 165 grain .40 S&W loads pretty much a non issue, which of course helped me pick up those big Trijicon sights for fast follow up shots.
As far as the Glock-ness goes, the only Glock I’d ever spent significant time with before this was my Glock 29 in 10mm, and that was so long ago I don’t remember how it handled all that well. Having not shot a Glock really since then, I had sort of forgotten had the grip angle (loved by some, loathed by some) helped me manage recoil.
Short version of the story: I loved this gun, and it shoots like a charm. I will be taking it to the next pin shoot with 180 grain rounds as well, and I liked shooting it so much that I now want to get a Glock 22 and a Glock 35 to round out my fullsize .40 S&W Glock stable. I have no idea how any of this happened, but I’m turning into a Glock guy, much to my eternal shame.
