Glock 26 Shooting VIDEO with Laser Demo

Had a great range session with my Glock 26, and did a demo on the utility of the laser sighting system. I've had my Glock 26 for about a year now and the ONLY problems I've had with it are due to ammo. For some reason, when using the 30 round Glock magazines, it does not like Mexican ammo and will FTF properly, but again only when using Mexican stuff in the 30 rounders.

Check out the video, it was almost my first outdoor range session using my new video gear. I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. See what you think:

Not that old WW2 Training Films on M1s aren't always enjoyable, here's the actual link to your video:

Thanks, I think it is taking a bit for YouTube to process the video.

Now, that I've watched it, and only since you asked:
The video was excellent, especially with the viewer being able to see exactly what you did.
A genuinely fine job.
About the shooting:
Hmm, well, all that rapid fire coulda' sure caused some collateral damage.
Hope there was noone anywheres behind ole' Bin Laden, who didn't deserve to get ventilated.

Not sure why people fear rapid fire....?

Very good video OP. As much as I like reading/writing reviews, I always like video evidence.

Re. collateral damage, not to worry, this was at the Arnold Rifle and Pistol Club. There were no humans anywhere nearby, or behind, the shooting. But, I do admit I probably took out some earthworms in the hill behind the target.

I'm rocking a 100 mgb connection at home, it always takes YouTube anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour to get things squared away.

Thanks for watching.

Rapid fire is ok if I can have the brass.
