I actually prefer the"styling" on the older ones. More planet of the apes looking, less mall ninja.

Bought both pre Obama scare. $87.00 for the 380, $129.00 for the 9mm carbine. No issues with either. I've got around 1,500 rnds through the 380. And haven't even cleaned it.

Not trying to be obtuse here, sorry...
Try using your thumb nail. So that it makes contact across two parts if the raised circle in the middle then press down and you should be able to slide the bushing around over the top.

When I first started doing it it took a couple of tries of pressing and moving the bushing to get it all the way over. Now I can do it in just one move.

I'll concede that.

Though it still doesn't look quite "right" to me.

Ugly, Glock ugly, Want.

PPK-- elegance, and no it isn't due to Bond. I just like the PP and PPK.

Early 20th Century Glock. Can be argued either way. But I'll buy the ugly side

Agree.

F'oooooogly.

--- my eyes, my eyes. The horror.

Weird, not ugly.


I wouldn't call it ugly, wouldn't call it good looking though either.

Gorgeous, one of the greats, get rid of those damned adjustable sights.

*shudder*

I also got this cool little jack looking like .22 target it has legs and when you hit it the thing will flip over and give you another target to shoot at...it is fun.

Kind of like that Christmas show about the mis-fit toys. In the end, you end up lovin' them.

I always thought the Ruger Standard Auto was ugly, except the bull barrel ones. That made the lines a lot nicer.
