Would a Glock 21 with a bar sto barrel be any good for 1500 ppc
It was used by previous owner for ppc

Kris,

a Glock has a very safe trigger what it makes terrible for precise shooting.
It will work on short distances, but at 50y it will be difficult.

Why he is selling the gun?

Kris, what ppc available guns do you currently have?

Myself, I use a MOJO smith and wesson revolver for 1500 matches.
it's based on a model 64. many based on model 10's abound, most will shoot 2" from a rest at 50 yards.

for a semi-auto, I'm using a Springfield Armory 1911 loaded in 9mm. Currently using it indoors, but, when the temperature goes up oh, say another 60 degrees, I'll be testing match loads outdoors for 50 yd matches. I've currently put in a Nowlin 9mm match barrel that I've yet to test out.

I'm going to play around with 147 gr Hornady xtp's , but, I know I have a good load using Hornady 115 gr HAP bullets.

and, the great 45 acp is renown for accuracy potential at 50 yds.

good luck!

Jim Chapman

Kris,
Just an ole mans opinion, if you are seriously into PPC, you are wasting yure time and money on anything less than a 1911 foundation style pistol with a substantial investment for accuracy and quality. For what I have seen price wise for the Sig you can get into a fairly decent 1911 platform and get some decent accurizing done. I of course don't know what your situation is in Canada about getting different guns, so the Sig might be a good choice on your part, definitely will outperform the Glock. Again just an ole farts opinion.
Stay safe.

Kris, try and contact fellow canadian Gerard Pouget. He's from somewhere in Ontario, Sarnia, or Windsor. He shoots in many of the Michigan Police Combat Pistol Association (MPCPA) matches. He's very knowledgeable and might be able to help you.

Jim, would you be willing to share what your load is using the 115 grain HAP's? I know any information is only for what works in your gun and I need to work up a load for my guns. I just like to learn what others are using and what kind of groups they are getting.

Thanks,
Tony

Thanks for the replies
I was looking at a ppc 9 and an x5
The x5 will be with me on Friday at the range for a test fire I can get the x5 for cheaper than a ppc 9
