Hey there fellow Glock nuts...

At first I hated a Glock, but If you'd have asked me why, I would not have had a good answer. I started my collection with a Baretta 96. I thought that it was a tried and tested pistol and I had not done a lot of research...I just knew I wanted a pistol for self defense. Well, I'll tell you now that I personally do not like a Baretta. Don't like how they fit my hand, and they get slippery after a few rounds. My second pistol was a Jericho 941, because I wanted one. It was not a good choice for carry, though. Very large and heavy. I still have it and love it...but it's something for the house or thaw range. Then I started doing some research and found that a Glock may be what I wanted. I saw a video on you tube where a guy had buried one for two years, dug it up and put 500 rounds through it no problem. Then I saw the 10000 round ammo dump video. Then...I went out and shot one at my local gun range. I went back to the same gun store a few days later and traded my beat to crap Baretta for a brand new G23 Gen 3 RTF. I bought a Blackhawk Serpa holster a short time later. I know carry it almost everywhere I go. I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Glad to be part of the forums, and look forward to learning lots.

Hey, JollyTrooper, WELCOME to the Forum!

Glad you finally saw the light and Glocked-and-Loaded! Funny how that works, isn't it, that the antiGlock sentiment is often unfounded?

Welcome, again, and know that over here you are among friends!
