    Get a good holster, cheap is tempting, but don't put your life line in a cheap holster.

    You know its not right to have a gun stored by itself; you must purchase another one to keep it company. Maybe a 1911 for a big brother.

    Welcome to the club brother. Always remember with any right, power or authority comes an equal mesure of reponsibility. I can not agree more with the above coments regarding training. Learning is a life long endever and no less so with firearms. If you cannot perfectly quote at any time the 4 cardinal rules of firearms safety then get there fast.

    1. all guns are always loaded

    2. never point a gun at anything you are not prepared to shoot

    3. keep your finger off the trigger, outside the trigger guard untill your sights are aligned on target and the decision to fire has ben made

    4. be aware of your target and what is beyond.

    No one of these is any more important than any of the others. You MUST now dedicate your life to living every moment with these rules foremost in your mind.-Jay

    Congratulations on a great purchase! I'd like to own a glock myself when more funds are available.

    Now you've gone and done it!!!
    Those peskey Glocks reproduce like dust bunnies! Worse yet, you picked up one of the best platforms.....my prayers go with you.

    My G23 'reproduced ' another G23 within the first year I had it. It's only gotten worse since.

    Welcome to the lifestyle, the lifestyle of those who are more alert and much more aware of their situations than the sheeple.

    As already stated, practice and keep learning.

    Well, the problem is they don't eat a $10/50# bag of rabbit pellets, they want these little pieces of paper with U.S. Grant on them. I tried leaving rabbit pellets out for my 19, but it didn't work...

    You could just also get a 9mm barrell for it from lone wolf and a 22 lr. kit from Advantage Arms. Because sooner or later your probably going to want to shoot 9mm because of cost of ammo, and then 22 since you can shoot your gun much more often with 22.

    Thanks for all the responses guys. I can see why you guys have a bunch of guns, I can already see the addiction side of it. I'll be heading to the range tomorrow, and out camping this weekend, so I'm sure it'll see a few rounds.

    I miss mine :( Had to sell it.
    For some reason the glocks have a major problem with the 'limp wrist' test. Keep a good grip on it :P

    Awesome!
    It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.

    Congrads, you big super Glocker!!!!

    Understand it well, and train with it and it should make you a fine carry weapon.
