Yeah, I saw that about the G21...user stupidity :)

The only thing that really worries me on the Glocks is the unsupported chamber on all of the guns; even my G21 bulged cases. My P14 never did.

BBA is a nice company, too! I've used their .475 Linebaugh rounds. Quite fun! :o For my .454 I use Winchester and Cor-Bon, though.

I 100% agree that the only reason Glock KB's have gotten so much attention is simple: there's a hell of a lot more of them out there than anything else.

But they do have some serious problems; breach face cracking due to dry firing (nice on a gun that has to be dry fired to be disassembled), cracked frames on NEW guns (mostly 9mms, though), their whole "recall" fiasco and crap customer service/quality control. Seems when they moved their factory they left QC & CS behind :(

I used to have a G31; it came out well before their little recall crap (and wasn't part of it), and it cracked a frame rail (front, not rear, like the what the recall was for).

I'll still nab a G20 after the ban is lifted, but I don't trust the unsupported chamber - I'll be getting an AM barrel...

What did he get ? $200,000 nearly 34 years ago.

Sh*t, that wouldn't even last him the weekend.

He's probably back to work, just like the rest of us.

I read that when he jumped it was about -5F outside air temp, and all he had on was a dress shirt under his suit jacket.
Add to that: he was over a bush/swamp area when he jumped...he probably froze to death hanging from a tree somewhere or his chute never opened and he did the 'boogie 'till ya bounce' thing. :o

Dang straight. I'd have given several non-essential body parts for even a two-week dating relationship. She had beauty AND class. Plus the Dutch/British/Belgian accent (ooooooooh....)

Yep! Beauty AND class.

For your Audrey Hepburn admiration pleasure, I have now changed my avatar to another picture of the lovely Ms. Hepburn.
