    Side note. Does the first pistol drop mags freely? Cause he put tape over the mag catch..
    I tried one of those rubber grips that slipped on. Kept getting in the way of the mag release so I pitched it in a drawer somewhere.

    I’d really appreciate it if you’d ask before you post pics of my guns.��

    Must have sent them to you because Dewey was all booked up and couldn't get to them.

The guys who were in Afghanistan in 2003 will remember all of the creative uses they found for duct tape and paracord. Their equipment often looked like an abomination, but it worked. Now some people will look back with nostalgia and associate those fugly guns with being a legit warrior.

    I prefer my guns clean. But some people seem to actually like them ugly. Those two could win a prize if ugly was the contest.
    normally i would understand and agree, but i've also seen grip tape from baseball bats, or even tennis tape. i've also seen the odd shrink fit bike inner tube. when this guy sent in his 2 g19s back in 2020, it was pretty much the same story, except he had a UTG optic mounted to one of the slides.

    on these, the wayward grip tape i could excuse, aside from covering up the mag release, but the fact that they are used to hold things in place that arent designed for use with the frame in the first place, like the aftermarket gen 3 beavertail held in place with grip tape on top and 3m hook mount tape underneath. then theres the 1/8-1/4" deep holes that he poked underneath the trigger guard. thats all before getting to the non-adjustable point of aim lasermax guide rod and the dotor 3 cover with the wire and small piece of velcro that i can only assume he has the other piece attached to his belt since unless hes running an uncle mikes, theres no holster that will accommodate the recover tactical rail adapters with olights

    That's exactly how I am. Even as a tinkerer/builder. I train with the platform til I can figure out EXACTLY what needs to be upgraded and changed vs left alone. It's a lot less wasted time and money that way.
    Plus it helps if you actually buy QUALITY ie S.I.
