    Went to a gun and knife show today, for $3 entry fee you never know what you might find. The one shop that displayed the most pistols at the show had a G21 Gen 4 that I've been eyeballing since I got my G26 a little over a month ago. He said he'd be willing to look at my XD for a potential trade. I wasn't having luck selling it and none of the other shops would consider it as a trade because they didn't like how a gun smith didn't install the trigger, and the other one would only do a consignment and said it would be a tough sell since she has the XDs .45. The guy with G21 is also the same guy I traded my XDm to for the P-07 and he gave me a fair price then. Maybe it would happen again. It won't hurt to bring it in and throw some numbers around! I wouldn't mind having a G21 to play with this weekend :cool:

    Also go to fondle some new guns. The M9 felt good and so did the P2022. The FNX felt great but the trigger was extremely gritty and rough. The Walther PPX felt good to and had a sweet trigger so I can see what the hype is about. Handled a GP100 4" stainless that will be one of my next guns. The wife still doesn't understand why I need more than one gun :rolleyes:

    We've had this discussion several times. She says she doesn't understand. I have to drive it into her head that she doesn't like like them like I do so of course she doesn't understand. If she doesn't understand, who is she to tell me I should only need one!:x She'll learn one day...maybe.

    Remember Carl's wise wisdom: All Glocks look the same. So, 5 Glocks is the same as 1 Glock when it comes to the Mrs! :wink:

    And locking blocks are unnecessary

    Yeah, when I was at the show I could have swore I was handling a G42. It was when I saw G21 on the side that it dawned on me.

    What's a locking block:confused: :p

    I feel honored, as for having a third leg, I thought that was a glock requirement until the g42.:oops:locking blocks are silly.

    Get the FNX. Seriously, run a few hundred rounds through it and the trigger will smooth right out and you've got a really nice gun. I've got friends who have them in 45 and they are fine shooting guns and being hammer fired you can get a much better trigger.
