First, they come out with that .45LC rifle which y'all know I bought. Which is a perfectly fine rifle right out of the box. But it has this full length picatinny rail and a whole bunch of M-Loc slots. So I had to get an optic. Then some big stick Glock mags. Then a WWII pouch and web gear for the mags. Then a linear comp. Then a sling. Then a foregrip because of all those empty M-Loc slots. Then today a Magpul bipod. Still a lot of empty M-loc slots! When will stop? :eek:

I need one of these, but didn't know Glock made .45LC magazines.🤔😉

Same mags as the Glock 21, 30, and 41 use. These are not Glock factory mags, but made by SGM. They work just fine for the Ruger LC. They also carry the 13rnd mags.

Yeah, this whole gun hobby is just one big racket as far as I'm concerned...I frequently spend as much, or more on accessories and accouterments than the actual firearms they go with!

Just got a n LC Carbine 45😉 too, gun is awesome!

An excellent performance review of +P loads in this rifle. MV and energy, etc. Of course the usual YMMV applies, so slightly different results should be expected with different rifles. I wish he had included Hornady Critical Duty (220grn +P) in this. It's been a favorite of mine for 9mm and .45acp for a long time.

I've seen this👍
My main use for this carbine is as a truck gun on my property. Loads of feral hogs to sort out, I figure a good +P 230gr load should be pretty effective up to 50yds or so.

MS has a good size herd also (around 700k), but I haven't seen any on my property - yet. Although they are in the neighborhood.

If you're looking for deep penetration on your hogs, I'd suggest the 255grn hardcast from Underwood or Buffalo Bore instead of a jhp. :)
