    I've been looking at these forums for awhile now and finally had a chance to create a user name. Currently don't own any guns but I plan on purchasing a Glock 17 for HD/Range sometime this month!

    Hello and welcome to the forum!!! What part of California? A glock 17 is a perfect choice for new gun owners and veterans alike.

    I also have a 17 and it was my first handgun, I LOVE it.

    I live in Northern California near Sacramento. Still debating on what I should do to it when I get it. I really want to polish the barrel / pins and get a stainless steel guide rod to match. I'm not sure on the 3.5lb trigger pull though.

    Great I am in the Bay Area. I would first suggest running a bunch of rounds through it and determine what you need, when I bought mine I had all kinds of plans but I found all I needed was a extended mag release, extended slide release and night sights which I haven't done yet but there next on the list.

    Welcome to the forum and I hope you enjoy your stay, you will find there are quite a few things to do with your Glock to modify/customize it, I suggest using baby steps and taking your time so you get exactly what works best for you :)

    A G17 is a great choice for a 1st Glock as it is a classic, you won't be disappointed and I hope you enjoy feeding her many rounds :)
