Hi All,

I am in the 10 day waiting period for my Glock 22. Gen 4 pistol.
I haven't owned a Glock before but when I felt the gen 4's smaller grip in my hand I knew now was the time I wanted one.
I am super excited to receive my new pistol and couldn't wait to join the forum. Maybe i can get some good tips & advice from experienced shooters on my new purchase.

I owned a HK usp c. Great gun but never loved the grip. The G22 is replacing that. I currently have and a Beretta 85 .380
I don't carry or have to worry about ccw but I do enjoy getting out to the range 4-5 times a year. I own for home protection.

Glock has a different lower profile in the hand to what I'm used to, any tips for a new Glock shooter?
Are there any snags or don't do items I should be aware of to protect & maintain the pistol ?
Or protect my hands when bringing the firearm to a firing position? I wouldn't want to get pinched on my first round :)

Thanks for welcoming me to your forum.

S

Hello SAfrica, and WELCOME to the Forum!

Where are you from? Just curious about the username. Looks like you are using an iPhone, did you download the App?

Cheers!

Thanks for your warm welcome to the forum

I am an Ex-South African, living in California. Different gun laws here. Some better, some worse, mostly stupid everywhere though.
Still have to wait until next week to receive my G22 and then next weekend to go shooting :cool:
