Take care with some of that stuff....it will melt the plastic grips into a sticky goo.....I don't remember the brand but it just totally manguled a snappy screwdriver handle on me. I will admit I have a few that I HATE to take apart....there are a couple of "brake free" type products made for guns that are plastic safe that I use....cost is about the same.

I picked one up a couple of weeks ago. I've only ran about 100 rounds through it, but I'm very impressed. Pretty darn accurate, and it fits my hand perfectly.
The slide doesn't fit super tight, but I bet it still shoots if I drop it in some crud.

I think I paid less for my first house than the total he's got sitting there.

Nice collection, but, all the same style? The man has a one track mind.

The only one I like from that collection is the Smith without the lettering on the slide. The others look like billboards.

Having a hard time deciding if I want one of these, a Steyr M9 or a Glock 19 as a IDPA/carry gun.

Also was looking at a TLR-1 and I'm glad to see it doesn't stick way out past the barrel like other monstrocities.

I prefer a separate light because it's more versatile and I can hold it away from my body. I'd rather use it to blind someone and then use the lasergrips to take center of mass shots. Holster choice is also really limited for weapon mounted lights. I carry a Surefire C3 with a Cree LED conversion.
