I have that itch arleady... I have the box to the rack open and I am fighting the urge to throw it on. I will say that everything that I have seen so far this rack is built very stout. All of the welds look great and the powder coating is perfect. Worth the 5-6 week wait time. I was going to do it tomorrow, but I am taking the kid up to ski las vegas for some ski lessons.

200 rounds through the Glock this afternoon. No malfunctions. I found out I'm a horrible shot and can't aim for ****. I could swear the sights are off on this thing though.

Got some 17 rd Korean made mags. Put about 50 rounds through each with no problems.

I thought the same when I got my xd but it was all my technique that needed a ton of work. I'm still not where I want to be but I'm getting there. I'm guessing you are shooting low and to the left.

Stock glock sights suck but I don't talk about guns 24/7 so my opinion probably doesn't matter much.

My problems were many. I was using the first joint on my trigger finger when I was pulling the trigger which was causing my drop and to the left. I was hunching my shoulders as well. I worked on my grip as to how I was holding the gun I was holding it a little low on the grip which was causing my groupings being all over the place. The biggest difference I saw was gripping the gun closer to the slide which helped me control the muzzle moving around as the gun cycled.

I'm no pro and I'm sure some other guys most likely Marn or powr or dmgiff could help you a little more then I can. I just did a bunch of Internet research and corrected was I was doing wrong.

Why would the "looming fiscal crisis" affect the filing of our taxes this spring? The tax filing is for the 2012 tax year, and said tax laws were in effect for the entirety of 2012! Wouldn't it stand to reason(I know it's the fed) that any changes would affect the tax filing in the spring of 2014(for 2013 tax year)? What am I missing?
