    I can't make up my mind on them. I love my M&P-15... But the story on the handguns seems to be hit/miss.

    In for the results.

    Hoss, the long version is ugly as fuck, and you gain practically nothing over the regular full size.

    I'm interested in this torture test. My M&P9 doesn't really get cleaned anymore, I put a little oil in the mechanism every once and a while.

    no, better because i can say with confidence that you'll never have to worry about your gun being submerged in fine grit sand, ice water, salt water, dragged from a truck, or dropped out of a plane :hsughno:

    glocks arent bad, they're just not my first choice :dunno: as i've said in other threads, i'll have a Gen 2 Glock 19 some day :hsd:

    I'd rather them leave it bone stock, so that if it does screw up, they can't blame it on anything else but the gun.

    The aesthetics of a gun, should be an afterthought. (Example: Glock)

    Also, sight radius, a heavier muzzle and muzzle velocity will be very different, and for those that understand it enough, it is of value for them.

    you honestly expect only 20-30k out of the average glock? I honestly would have expected 100-200k easily........

    because I do approx 1k a month, so you're saying my glock is likely done in less than 3 years? I just don't see that hapening.
