The only problem is the silhouette is an ugly Glock, otherwise it's very cool, lol (at least there is a Chevy in the background

And the other problem is the sign is talking about.45acp. HA! My 9mm will go 1500FPS! But good sign anyways...

850 fps may as well be 30,000 fps. As one of those people who are "gay for glocks", I'll put my trust in the combat tupperware over any production gun out there. They haven't failed me yet.

First there is a picture of a glock. Second there is a Chevy in the photo too. The 45acp found I shoot don't fly at 850 fps., it is more like 1000 to 1100 fps..

there's something else wrong with this sign. The bullet shown, unless it is closer to the viewer than the gun is (curving the bullet perhaps?), is much to big to come out of that gun. Also, the pivot point of that trigger is much too far back, indicating the trigger is broken. Also, the slide isn't still cycling, but at 850 fps, if the bullet were that close to the muzzle, the slide would just now be starting to unlock. Well, and there's nobody firing it, but you couldn't fire and drop the gun that fast at 850 fps. But perhaps all these techical points are negated by the fact that it's just a sign?

Good call, lucky.

My Glocks are my HD sidearm and carry guns, so magazine compatibility makes sense to me. I will someday get a 2011-framed race gun and I hope my wife's aversion to revolvers will wear off so I can get a S&W 29-8 44 mag, but for serious work, the Glock 9mm guns are all I need.
