    Starting to see ammo on the shelves again. A local range posted they're flush with 9mm and .45.

    They're still limiting it to 5 boxes per customer but its a good start.

    At 7:30 this morning, I stood in line at Academy Sports and managed to get a 500 round box of 9mm and .45.

    Slowly, it's starting to happen. Just be patient. Or get up early and wait.

    I can get some from the local range, but it's usually reload or junk ammo that's not the best for when you're trying to break in a gun. If I didn't have a .45 with ammo I'd suck it up and get the junk.

    But since I have the .45 I'll just be patient.

    OK, watched a Youtube video and cleaned m G19. Is it as easy as it seemed? Is it possible to put it together incorrectly and unsafely?
    I pulled the slide, took off the recoil spring, and pulled out the barrell. Cleaned everything, put a coupel dabs of oil where the slide contacts the frame. Re-inserted the barrell, the recoil spring and re-attached the slide. It chambers a round and ejects it if I cycle the slide with additional rounds in the magazine and work the slide again. If itfunctions correctly is there any chance it is dangerously put back together?

    Yes, I probably should have done this process for the first time with someone more experienced then I...

    I don't have a Glock, yet. But the gun I do have is very very similar. I can't imagine there is really a way to put it back together incorrectly, but I am not the authority on that.

    I would guess with only, what 3 parts you take off it be hard to mess up. That and if it chambers and ejects properly, I 'd think you did it all correctly.

    That's kind of my assumption as well until HR tells me otherwise. I was told repeatedly how easy the tear-down/Clean up/reassemble process was, and it certainly seemed very simple. There really doesn't appear to be a way to get it back together if it's not correct.

    Thanks

    With no magazine in or any ammo, rack the slide. It should propel forward.

    With weapon pointed in safe direction, squeeze the trigger. It should "snap" with no rattle.

    Insert an empty mag and rack the slide. It should lock and not propel forward.

    Press the thumb catch. Slide should propel forward.

    Drop magazine, With weapon pointed in safe direction, squeeze trigger. It should snap again.

    Congrats! You've performed a function check on your Glock, meaning you put it together properly.

    Waited in line this morning for more ammo.

    Only got one box of 20 9mm rounds and a 20 round box of .223.

    Lame.

    Bring it on.

    Seriously, I only have 1,500 rounds in the safe. It's starting to look like a Soviet grocery store.

    I can see you now.




    On another note. This could be another thread but with the low activity here it could stay too.

    Do you think the NDAA stays as is or will there be enough lawsuits or pressure to change some of it?
