Well, went to the range today. Wanted to work up to the 50 cal for the comparison effect AND... because I don't get to the range much these days with the ammo prices. Started with a 22, then 9MM, 45, and onto the 50 cal. Come to find out, the Orlando Gun Club had no issues with the 50 cal in the range. I called ahead and asked. I usually try to get there at opening to make sure a get a lane, BUT I was the only person in the range at opening. I guess because of the ammo issues. When I was at the counter and they checked my ammo, he looked at the box of 50's and said " what are we shooting with these " - I pulled up my shirt and said Glock 50 cal. - he had that look of surprise and said " wow - concealed - I couldn't even tell it was there ". :oops:

I was pleasantly surprised with the Glock 50 !! It was smooth, on target and less recoil than I expected. I didn't have a lot of time and only had one box of ammo ( 20 rounds ) for the 50, would have liked to have shot more. The recoil actually felt similar to the Sig 45 1911. Not more ! My only regret is that I forgot to shoot it one-handed. Will get more ammo and shoot it again.
When I got home my 50 cal self defense rounds were delivered !

Awesome and great pic's also ! .. Yes regarding my s&w .500 , the first thing i did was to get a set of dies . I bought new brass [ 500 ] had primers and then all assorted heads . Copper heads from 270 gr to 500 gr. hard cast . p.s. - I'm wondering if my copper s.w cutter heads in 270 gr . would fit your .50 cal ? They should as they're the same actual diameter . Just trying to help you save some $$ (y)

I had to chase mine down the street the other day. :)
🤣 I think we all are having to do that lately! Food, fuel, ammo, the price of everything is going up significantly, which IMHO has a lot to do with the spending policies in D.C.! 🤬

Good report, of note is your opinion on it's recoil, that's very interesting.

updated range report....
shot the Glock 50 cal again today and alternated between the Sig 45 ,1911 and the G 50 cal...
The 50 has a very slight recoil difference and very slight decibel difference from the 1911. Also shoots fine one handed.
Been carrying for almost 2 weeks now and its actually more comfortable and hides better than the G19 or the 1911.
Course I have to use a leather Bullard holster for a 45 that hugs it closer to my body than a Kydex that I usually wear.
Pleasantly surprised at all these results 😎

I was just thinking wow that is going to be a big holster and quick draw is going to be a little slower than normal.
