Not sure where else to post this, but I Just wanted to give a shout out to shocktec. They are a gel padding company, and so far I am really happy with them. I used their lightweight gel to make some trauma pads to run behind my plate carrier. I'm going to make some insoles, and knee pad inserts with what material I have left. I talked to the owner last week, he's cool as fuck, hooked me up with some of their higher grade gel as free samples. It's pretty dope, lots of testing data posted on their website showing how effective it is for absorbing blunt trauma. I know the company has some millitary contracts as well. Check them out if you wanted some good trauma padding.

I was curious @Crye Salesman I know basically nothing about glocks, but I'm wanting to put one together. My thought was just an x300u, sro, and maybe a striker control device since I've seen a few people who I trust on other firearm stuff recommend them. Are things like aftermarket slides and stippling worth it or is it better stock?
