    Hello from South Africa

    Hi guys,

    Just a quick hello from South Africa.
    I am starting the process of applying for a license to own a firearm (quite a mission here, but certainly better than it used to be).
    I'm looking at either a Glock 19 or Glock 26. On the local gun forum a lot of people suggested I go with the 19 so that is probably what I am going to go with.
    Hope to learn a lot from these forums and hopefully be able to contribute one day.

    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    Hello, South Africa, and welcome from Missouri to this great forum. Good people & LOTS of info here! I'd say if it's a Glock you want, select the size that will best meet your intended use.

    Greetings from Massachusetts. I'd be fascinated to know what the gun laws are like in South Africa and what the process is like to get a license to carry there. We complain all the time here in the US (especially in states like Massachusetts) were the laws vary greatly from state to state and even city to city. If you get a chance, please share with us a bit about your gun laws and attitudes about gun ownership in South Africa. Enjoy the forum!
