Glock’s 33-Round 9mm Magazine — Practical and Tactical

While there are floorplates and such that add up to a 19-round magazine, in the Glock 9mm the 33-round magazine is the grand-daddy of them all.

Getting Started in 3 Gun

Getting started in 3 Gun is about as easy as it gets. You do not have to have any special equipment or skill. Any 9mm, shotgun, and long gun will generally get the job done. Best of all, while having fun and learning the ropes, you will develop and hone a multitude of skills that can be applied to other shooting sports or, more important, self-defense and home defense applications.
