    Talking Uh oh... I took the plunge!

    My dbay was 11/19 and I decided to go shopping. Given the looming frustrations from the incoming administration and the fact that I needed somthing and it's my bday I found this...



    I know, I know. Seen one glock you've seen em all but, dang it, this one's all mine. She's a third gen G23, Night sights, and two hicap mags $425 out the door. And the shop owner even gave me a box of 180gr Magtechs and said "Happy Birthday". A buddy is letting me use his old Crossbreed IWB until I can aquire a holster of my own.

    I've been eyballing Glocks for a while. I've shot many and always liked them but have never had one of my own. I normally am a 1911 guy but this deal was too good to pass up for me.

    Happy Birthday to me.

    Put a set of Big Dot 24/7 sights on it and really trick it out.

    Congrats.

    As to the holster, why not buy the CB from your friend if it's as you say his "old" holster? It's going to be hard to find a holster that's much more comfortable without a search and a long turnaround time.

    Ugly is as ugly does. If you like her (or him, for us females ) it doesn't matter.

    Have a happy and safe birthday. You're taking her out to the range, aren't you?

    Well his wife has a G17 and when she gets her permit back will most likley want to use it. Also I like the Crossbreed IWB, Ive had 2 of them so I think I'm going to spring for a SuperTuck.
