I am a belt and suspenders kind of guy when it comes to certain things. Home defense is one of them. Because of that, I like several options sitting by the bedside for dealing with social work, like evicting home invaders. There is a gear tree that sits 3 feet away from my nightstand that holds my 3-gun belt, my plate carrier and two long guns. One of those guns is an AR-15, and that is what we will focus on today.

How do you make the best even better? By combining the two of course. Read the full review of the Glock 17 Vickers Tactical to discover the details for yourself.
If the effectiveness of a bullet can be summed up in a single phrase, it would be “stopping power.” The more stopping power a bullet delivers, the more effective it will be at ending a confrontation in your favor. Make no mistake; stopping power and caliber do not share the direct correlation many people think.
There are times when you don’t notice a shift in the paradigm, but with the new Glock G17 and G19 Gen4 MOS (Modular Optic System) pistols the move is obvious and clear.

The Shooter’s Log writers are big fans of Armscor’s .22 TCM round. We were especially intrigued when we saw GLOCKs at the RIA booth.

With a barrel, guide rod and recoil spring, you can shoot the brand new .22 TCM 9R round through your GLOCK 17 9mm, using GLOCK mags.
