    Hello Everybody,

    I'm new here and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Sam, I'm 28, and I live in South Florida (Davie to be exact). Currently I'm a security officer (I carry a Glock 17 in a Safariland 6360 Level III Duty Holster at work) and I'm trying to become a police officer. I'm married (got married October last year) and my wife has 5 kids. I've taken the 3 boys to the range with me a few times. For guns I own a Mark VII Desert Eagle in .357, two Beretta's (a 92FS and an M9), a Taurus PT1911, and three Glock's (a 17, 22, and 21). I've been thinking about getting a Glock 37 but I'm not sure. I like the Glock 34 and 35 as well. I used to be a full time musician. Toured the US and Canada a few times playing guitar in different Rock/Metal bands. That's a little bit about me. Thank you for reading, and I hope to make some new friends here.

    Welcome to the Glock Forum Sam! Stick around, I bet you'll like it around here!

    Care to admit what band you were on tour with?

    I was in a few, but I was in a band called Human Factors Lab and we toured with Mushroomhead... I've also played shows with and toured with Vince Neil, Blue Oyster Cult, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, 16Volt, Dee Snider, and a few others.

    I've attached pics of all my guns... I'm probably gonna end up with either a Kimber Custom II, Sig P226, or another Glock in the next month (either a G37, 34, or 35).

    My opinion Kimber is overpriced...

    Hey, Sam, just an an afterthought:

    Good for you that you got your arsenal going before tying the knot...may be a little difficult to do so after.

    Happysniper1 I got lucky 'cause my wife is from Michigan and she's cool with guns... Plus... I got her shooting my G17 now and she likes it.
  18. I'm saving up for a 17, I won't even bother trying to get my wife to shoot my 30. She kinda liked my .22, but she hasn't wanted to go back to the range...

    My wife is from Illinois and isn't quite against guns, just doesn't understand them.
