    Hello, all. The Voice of Reason here.

    Yeah, right. Reason on an open forum?

    Anyhow, I'm retired Air Force (almost 20 yrs now) and recently obtained my CWP in Fl. I usually don't partake in forums as there's just too much arguing going on. Glock Vs everything. Everything Vs Glock, etc. Heck, just shoot what you like! I'm just looking for good info about guns, shooting, reloading, etc. I can pass on the political aspects, et cetera.

    I currently own a Glock 30, which having never shot semi-autos before (Ruger Blackhawk man, myself), I'm still getting used to it. Between practive with a .22 conversion and .445 loads, I'm starting to get more comfortable with it, and the groups are beginning to close up. No 3-inch groups yet, but a man-size target at 15 yards is in serious trouble.

    A Blackpowder Blackhawk taught me to shoot revolver.
    A Glock is a persuasive friend to have when things are really and unexpectedly unpleasant.

    Welcome OldVet from Central Texas!!!!!

    If you don't like the Glock wars you probley will not like the caliber wars or mouse gun battles.
    It goes bang bang bang bang but most of the time it is friendly.

    Looking forward to your posts.

    from Ga. Welcome to DC.

    Got the G36 myself and love it. Good round and great platform to fire it from.

    You'll find a surprising abundance of reason here, actually. That's partly why this is my favorite forum!
