OK I know I was supposed to do this before I started Posting but hey I spent 7.5 yrs in the Corps and I rarely do things the right recommended way! I bought my first Glock in 1988 from a co worker (G-17). I had no interest in Glocks but the price was right and I figured I could use it for trading material. Shot it a few times and loved it and have had them since. My Daily carry gun is a G-30. I hail from the Great Gun State of Arizona but I was Born in Texas and have lived all over the west!
