Hello to all fellow Glock and firearms enthusiasts.i signed up a while ago, but mainly just been looking through all of the forums. I'm liking what I see so far. I currently reside in NC but am originally from Rhode Island. I am also currently enlisted in the Marine Corps since 2004 and am about ready to hang it up. Have owned multiple handguns, but I have to say, so far, I find the Glocks to be the all around best handguns made. I realize there are some people out there who would argue otherwise, which is why I state "all around". I'm a firm believer in purpose built firearms and some firearms being better in certain areas, but for ease of use, maintaining and functionality, I think the Glock is the best. I currently own 3 different Glocks. The 22, 23, and 27. If you couldn't tell, I'm a big fan of the .40 cal. I've rambled on long enough. Looking forward to chatting with y'all and debating topics.

Thanks for the welcome y'all. Vanessa, we're all noobs at some point in our life. Not being a noob anymore gives us a goal. Rickjames, awesome name. What did you use to paint the writing on your Glock in the photo? Haven't really done much to modify mine yet, but am always up for a project.

Yes I am stationed there. Have been for my entire time in and I have to say, other than some other Marines, it's not a bad place when compared to home.

I was there in the mid 70's. Courthouse Bay, Engineers, Mine Warfare & Demolitions. I liked it a lot. except for the noseeums. Hate sand fleas, & chiggers.

Anyway, glad your okay & stateside, enjoy the Forum.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. Man, getting more responses than I anticipated.... Surprisingly, Rodenbush does sound familiar. Courthouse Bay is a nice area. Kinda have their own area to themselves. Although they've built that up quite a bit. Thank you for your service Devil, left a legacy that's hard to live up to.
