    Glock 37

    Well I am on my way to becoming a Glock Snob, just purchased a second Glock.

    I was actually looking for another police trade in. But the trades jumped in price and were almost as much as new. In the case of the M&P the difference between trade and new was only 6 dollars. I almost went with a new M&P when I discovered the Glock 37 was actually 20 dollars less.

    All down hill from here... wait till you start shooting and carrying them.

    They really are good guns as you may have already figured out.

    I have been carrying the 22 all day today to get test out the holster I just finished today. I will not abandon my loved ones(SA revolvers), but I can see carrying one on occasion.

    The 22 is not a bad gun, not as accurate as the SA revolvers or even my 1911's. I haven't shot it at a rest so I can not swear to how accurate it is capable of, about three inch groups at 10 yards offhand. With my SA revolvers and my 1911's I can put rounds downrange and always have one jagged hole targets. But then I don't think Glocks were designed for bullseye shooting.

    I think only a few models are USA made. The gun I am getting is made in Austria, I would imagine that is why it only has 10 round mags when the ACP models have 13, so the 37 can have enough points to be imported. OK with me for 10 rounds, with 3 mags that is 30 rounds. I can't find cover in 10 or stop the threat a gadzillion rounds is not going to make the difference.

    If you haven't shot them yet you'll be pleased when you do. This was my g34 and then some g23 the other day.

    ALERT - you have now opened yourself up to all of our UBER internet sharpshooters who claim to measure pistol shooting in MOA! Thus they will say your posted pick is equal to a 98 foot spread at 100 yards, yet they will never display their skills claiming modesty...etc...

    Just over 10yds (i think 12 to be exact). I'll have to measure it next time I'm there to be certain.

    Mid 20s, clear day, not much wind, moderate humidity, isosceles stance , strong hand unsupported (no bench shooting). Moderate paced fire with at least 2 mag changes. I short my mags to force the reload at speed then settle down into moderate/slow fire again after good sight picture.

    I'm sure the moa is like 9 million or so lol.

    I think he's just been at the range this whole time shooting his new real gun. He'll be back once he runs out of ammo. May be a while.

    Actually I have been working on leather.

    I shot the 22 already, smooth but not as accurate as a 1911. The 37 should be at my LGS on Wednesday, I can't shoot it until I get my brass from a LEA range. Bought the bullets and a pound of Longshot from Ed's yesterday. 63 bucks for 500 plated Berry's RNHB. Considering I usually load to the low end of any caliber I really do not need hollow points. I will send the 185's downrange at around 900fps and see if it is enough pressure to operate the slide. If I can find a available box of HP's I may load them. But in the 45 at moderate velocity, HP's will not perform reliably. I normally shoot 200 grain hardcast in the 1911 at 850fps. Or soft 230 grain at 800fps.

    You have not been listening, Glocks never jam, only other brand guns. If a glock has a functioning problem it is because the owner has a limp wrist.

    Out of the dozen or so Semi autos I own and many more different ones I have shot I don't think I ever had one that hasn't malfunction at one time or another. Most are very reliable but if one shoots enough one will have a malfunction.

    Its one thing to shoot a few hundred rounds and "never" have a malfunction its another to shoot tens of thousands of rounds and "never" have a malfunction.

    That's why we practice malfunction and clearing drills its not a matter of if but when.

    i shoot a g34 on the weekends... lightly modded (it came with 3.5lb connector, i installed titanium plunger, springs). I shoot a lot of reloads but i have had a few FTEs or FTFs here and there. Like you said, it's not a matter of if but when. Thats why i throw in snap caps randomly or have a buddy load a mag with an unknown number of rounds.

    Necro post here:

    While that might be the case.

    I believe it has more to do with the g37 grip frame being the same as the G22/17.
    With the grip being smaller than a G21, the mags arfe designed to fit inside the smaller frame so the rd count would have to be reduced to accept the fatter caliber.

    Have you tried to see how many rds of 45GAP your G22 mags will hold?


    I recently picked up a G37 myself on a whim. At the price offered it was impossible to pass up as I could never be upside down when you considered the accessories, Heinie NS (2014) and the amount of factory ammo included.

    My G37 had it's grip shortened to a G38(G19) and stippled , along with the trigger guard under cut.

    Never thought I'd like (TRY) 45GAP or a stippled grip but this thing feels great and shoots like a dream.

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    I figured out later that it was due to the width of the different frames. I carry the G22 most of the time but the G37 is a much sweeter shooter.

    I shot about 150 rounds through my G20 today I really want some new sights, and I want a little bit taller front sight.

    Just thought I'd join in on the Glock party.

    I'd post pics of targets but I don't want to make you guys feel bad

    Not possible, I have a 1911 that will drive chunks of lead into the same hole all day. And a Star Super that is darn close to it.
