I left a post here last night and see it's not here today! Oh well, I asked the same question about the 200 and 230 grain loads. They don't make either of them in a .40SW load, unless it's a handload. They do however make both in the 10mm, which is a .40 caliber bullet. But that would make it a Glock model 20! Hopefully this will post!!

OK... so I fired my used Glock 22 Gen 2 for the first time today at the range and am very pleased. I fired it with the Lone Wolf 9mm barrel first. The 9mm worked great... deadly accurate. When I switched back to the OEM.40 barrel my shot groups were still tight, but about 2 inches left of the center. Bothered me at first, so I rested my elbows on the table to steady my aim and tried again... the shot group was center again. So, I now know it was me and not the gun. I'm paraplegic from the chest down, so it's hard to steady my upper body without the support. Having to learn my shooting posture all over again from a wheelchair. Anyway, I wish I'd got a Glock long before now.

Congrats on your discovery Sgt! I own the gen 2 model 23, bought it new in 96 and love it!!! I'd like to pick up a Lone Wolf 9mm barrel for it. Sounds like a smart investment.

Tig,

Got my 9mm barrel from CheaperThanDirt.com for $99. It definitely is worth the investment. I fired the Russian made TulAmmo today. I'm thinking it will be even better with better quality ammo.

Hey Sgt!



Sounds like you have a winner with the Gen 2 G22! It is a class act weapon for sure.



Some ammo sold by CTD is the BVAC Once Fired Reloads, 180gr SJHP for 500 rnds $134 and they are deadly! I've never had a malfunction with these cartridges and they are not so expensive that you can't practice with what you'd like to carry. You can also buy new manufacture of these same loads. Check out the reviews and see what others are saying!

Tig;

I liked the Conversion Barrel so much (they are Match Grade Barrels) that I bought one in 40S&W and it shoots tighter groups than the factory (my G22 IS a trade-in) and the .357SIG barrel is a real flat shooter!

You won't go wrong with a Lone Wolf Conversion Set!

Sorry guys, I screwed up! I was thinking .45 but should have written 180gr .40 S&W. The other pistol I had w/ me @ the time was a .45ACP. I had a senior moment.

Nah, it was the euphoria from seeing those groups tighten up with the Glock 23.

Just finished up building a small 'qualification range' for a friend of mine to take his CCW students to. Have a nice area with a 25 yard range with a shooter's bench/table and a marked 7 yard and 10 yard shooter's line.



Posterity may find all that lead and copper in the hill in the future and think they hit a new lead vein in Missouri!



snke doctr:

I think I have to agree with SW, the euphoria from a good day at the range can make you think one thing and write another...
