    Although i have made a few posts already, i figured i would make a "introduction" post. i am 24, in the air force, been around guns since i was 8. just bought my first hand gun on black friday (glock 19). enjoy being able to open carry, waiting on my CHP. i just joined the VCDL as well.. i look forward to being an active, and somewhat helpful member of the community. even if it is just my smartass wit that wins you all over



    cheers!:celebrate

    I had a 2nd gen 21. Not my cup o' tea, so I sold it. If I had to have one, I'd pick one in 9mm--either a 17 or a 19--the best caliber for the platform, in my opinion.

    Oohh, oh, oh I see the problem here ... you obviously haven't taken the time to become intimately familiar with Springfield's fine line of XD pistols. Common error even among experienced shooters like yourself if they were brainwashed by several years using an inferior sidearm in LE. :P

    I'm acquainted with the Springfield line. Its a very nice gun. I just know and trust the reliability of my Glock....any Glock.

    Welcome cbackous - good people and good times here.

    When Glock makes an authentic 1911, I'll think about it ProShooter, if it is made out of iron.

    BTW - do you still have to pull the trigger of a Glock to disassemble one and isn't there a rule about keeping your finger off of the boom switch 'til you're on target?

    Oh I'm ready. I have plenty of brochures and help available both days. Just finalized our January dates so that we have a schedule available. Our December classes are virtually sold out. I'm anxious to see the turnout at the show.
