    I carry 357 Sig more than anything else, but awhile back I had the opportunity to shoot a G41 and loved it. Next thing I know I took one home...

    Slide milling, BUIS and trigger from Suarez International. I undercut the trigger guard as I do all my Glocks, it just makes shooting more comfortable to me. The gun balances and points very well, much like a G34.

    Most of my time is spent shooting at reasonable self-protection distances but I do think it's important to develop long range shooting skills with pistols. The 45 drops a lot more than others but 100 yards is easy with this gun. Longest shot I've made with this one was around 180.

    My heart just lept in my chest. Wow, what an awesome pistol. Looks like you chose some sort of gray Cerakote?

    Thank you. I like that pistol a lot, and I thought the pic turned out well :)

    That is Titanium Aluminum Nitride. It's a metal plating that is supposed to be even tougher than Glock's melonite process. It has more lubricity than a stock Glock slide (though I still grease the rails) and makes cleaning even easier. And it happens to look nice. It's not really necessary but after getting the slide milled for the RMR I prefer the slide to be refinished.

    Ceracote is nice for different colors, and it's great for corrosion resistance, but it doesn't stand up so well to holster wear.

    I agree about Cerakote. I milled my competition slides, then Cerakoted them. Since I compete whenever possible and dryfire practice all the time, those slides get hundreds of draws a month. They show the wear, very much so!!

    Some folks like that look, which is cool. It's not my thing though.

    I've got an old Gen 2 Glock with NP3 by Robar. It's got some holster wear over the years but it's mild. It has held up extremely well.

    The look of wear I mean. I think brand new ceracote looks great!

    That's a fine looking machine. Who said Glocks are ugly? I've got a 34 and happen to think it looks like one tough SOB.
