And no, it’s not professional shooter Jessie Abbate – although she’s hot enough to deserve my attention. I do, however, have a crush on my newly-issued city Glock 22.
I spent yesterday at the PPD Pistol Range for my annual re-qualification. At the start of the day, the instructor asked if anyone wanted to update their 9mm Glock 17s for a more powerful model. The 40-cal. Glock 22 was available, so I jumped at the chance.
I’m glad I did.
The Glock 22 is a mirror image of my old Glock 17 – with more powerful ammunition, obviously – and it actually feels lighter. What’s more, since the new magazines hold three less rounds, the city gave us three of them, instead of the two 17-round mags from my old Glock. I was able to put it to the test through two rounds of qualifying, and it shot like a dream. I shot a 99 each time.
So, if you need me, I’ll be spending quality time with my new friend.
