Default I did it !!! Converted someone to Glock !!!

FINALLY !!! After I told my daughter, DO NOT buy a Taurus PT140 (.40S&W).
She bought it anyway cuz it was "CUTE" and much cheaper than a Glock !!!


After shooting 200 rounds thru it, she and her husband could not get it apart. I finally figured out how to get it apart with this failure it had. Shavings everywhere in the slide and mechanisms. It's going in for Service to an Authorized service center then she's selling it.

So she said she have listened to Dad as usual !!! But hasn't been able to find a Glock 23, 27, 19 or 26. I wanted her to have a G23. I found her one at Academy this afternoon and made her race up there to get it.

She's now the proud owner of Glock 23 Gen 3 from Academy for $529.99 as of about 45 minutes ago.

Now she just called, her and her husband want me to go the range with them. Probably cuz the husband is out of 9mm and needs to borrow some of my stock pile. I happen to KNOW he's got 5 boxes on the way since we got together and made an online bulk buy, so I'm loaning him a box of 9mm and gonna go break in the daughters G23.

Hey bud, hate to break it to you but 9mm won't do you any good in a G23. It's .40S&W.

I hope he sees this before he runs out the door.

I guess they could have a conversion barrel to make it 9mm. But a stock 23 is a .40. I had my eye on a ported one.

Its a .40 caliber I own one, They do make a conversion barrel to shoot 9mm but those run $109 and you need G19 mags.... So I think that its maybe a type-0.... No way she got all that for $529...Concealed 27

I know a 9mm case will fit inside a .40 case. I'd think a 9mm bullet would fall completely out of the .40 barrel. I'll go verify that. BRB.

Sho enuff! 9mm falls completely through a .40 barrel.

Have no fear dudes. The 9mm was for HIS Beretta CX4, NOT for my dauhters G23. She had plenty of .40 already. All I took to shoot was my G23 and P89 9mm.
