Tried out the Glock this morning, no official targets and since my horses are kind enough to leave targets that react when hit that’s what I shoot at

Using plain jane Winchester ball ammo and after a few test shots at the close “targets” I started shooting at targets further away. I’m impressed, was whacking horse turds at 40-45 yards with ease, it is a pretty straight forward gun. Did try some double taps, that trigger safety bit my finger. Any advice or ideas to cure that?

Also bought some Ruger 25 round magazines for my 10-22, haven’t shot that gun in close to 20 years because I detest those 10 round mags and the Ram Line I tried once was a generic pile of garbage that actuall fell out while firing and wouldn’t feed well at all. That gun has sentimental value so instead of selling it I put itnin the safe and that’s where it stayed. Well these Ruger mags work well, feed well even when doing a mag dump. Forgot how accurate that thing was, again shooting horse turds and was popping them easily at over 100 yards with open sights, imagine if I scope that gun!

sounds like fun to me. Wish I had a solution for the bite, you're experiencing. I've not had that happen so wouldn't know how to correct it.

good for you dumping a few rounds is always fun
I am not sure about the trigger bite maybe some glock owners will chime in ,
as for the ruger the 25 round ruger mags seem to hit or miss some guns work great other's not so much I have always had good luck with he butler creek steel lip 25 round mags , I did buy a few of the Ruger 25 round mags but have not used them yet
the old ramline did not seem to hold up well I agree on that they use to replace them for free I had a collection of junk ones I called several + years back . surprise under new ownership the old good for life went away with the new owners and would not honor the broken old mag replacement ..

Lonnie, what you need are called finger cots. Here's a link to Staples.

After your first shot don't release the trigger all the way. Let it go just far enough to feel the 'click' of the reset. Your follow up shots will not have the long take up of your first shot.
Congrats on the new gun and welcome to the dark side!

The trigger issue you describe just takes a little getting used to. I would dry fire the gun a bunch and you’ll learn where to place your finger.

Or you could always disable the damn thing- but I wouldn’t recommend it.

And this is how you shoot striker fired guns.
