Dang glock! I wish I could get in the range time that you do. (My issue is a 35 mile drive to the range.) That gun is a good example that relatively inexpensive guns can be accurate and reliable. It also looks good. Good shooting.

The range I use is 35.3 miles away!! There are ones closer but they have round count rules, no steel shoot rules etc, etc. Plus the range I frequent has a 1,000 yard rifle range - something very rare in this neck of the woods!

Well I guess I shouldn't complain then. Yours is about the same distance as mine. Outdoor ranges are few and far between in my part of the state.

Is this the same Canik you were shooting back in Nov.? They are impressive guns, especially when you consider the price.
I was driving 50 miles to a range for awhile, then it sold and the new owners closed it down. Then we had one open about 12 miles away which I went to as often as I could, but they didn't make enough money and closed down. Everything else requires annual membership fees and a big up front investment to join. How can we live in rural America and have such a hard time to find a place to shoot?

Good question. The range I shoot on is a private gun club and the annual membership went up this year from $135 to $150.00. The next closest outdoor range is North of Salina and is about 120 miles one way. There are several nice ones scattered around South Central Kansas, which is even farther.

Same model but not the same gun! The one I shot in November had a "titanium" coloring!

Both are nice looking firearms glock! Nothing wrong with 2 of the same guns, just different colors. A lot of the guys that are able to find Ruger Wranglers are buying one of each color - 3! At under $200 each, why not?
