Re: New Pocket Pistol?

I am ALMOST convinced that I can handle that Glock 27 in .40 S&W. I took the Glock 22 out to the range today along with my S&W 629 and the 1911. I had 100 rounds of .40 S&W, 165-grain cartridges (Winchester) and 50 rounds of [more]

Re: New Pocket Pistol?

Umm, did you mean a 10mm or a .40 S&W?? A quickie Google search says both the Glock 22 and 27 come in .40 S&W, but I didn't see any mention of 10mm.

Sorry about that Bill, I meant .40 S&W.

New Pocket Pistol?

I’m looking for a small new pistol in 10 S&W. I recently purchased the Glock 22 and have yet to shoot it. About the only problem with it that I have noticed so far is being able to field strip it. I have managed to split the fingernail on my left [more]

Re: Growing Tomatoes

Try green peppers instead.
They are fairly easy as long as you are not in a drought area and
they do not take a large area.
