Vanity: I bought my Glock 19 today, and I simply wanted to say thank you!

I know I posted a thread a few days ago about a handgun (below), and my interest in a Glock 19, and I sought your thoughts and comments.

Knowing I tried it before I bought it!

Well I did my research and I went and bought the G19! That's a freakin' awesome handgun!

I took my Dad and he fired it too! And he was amazed by it (He owns a 1911 and I know that's no comparison, I know that).

I just wanted to say thanks for all of your comments! I tried a Sig and some others, but I'm sticking with what I bought! That's a freakin' awesome handgun!

So thank you all! Now I need to get me a great rifle!

Does anyone have any thoughts on Armalite (AR-10)or S&W M&P?

Welcome to the G family.

I have a Model 23. Have been considering a 27 for quite some time but keep buying musical gear! I don’t think an amplifier will provide much in the way of self-defense though.

Congrats! I recently picked up a Smith and Wesson M&P 45 ACP.

Congrats! I bought my first gun today- a Ruger.

Wanted to get it just in case Obama wins and tries a gun grab.

My local Ranch Supply and Outfitter was selling all ammo for 10% off. I stocked up on everything!

I didn’t want to spend alot....and I wanted a Safety for my fiancee, so a GLock was out of the question.

I’ll be going out this weekend with my dad to shoot, and my brother when he gets home from Fort Bragg.

.....and hopefully my fiancee as she has never shot a gun. I grew up with them, but have not really shot for 20 years or so.

I have had a Glock 22 .40 cal for years and it has never failed to go bang when I pulled the trigger. I have more expensive and exotic guns but the 22 is still my favorite go to gun. Congratulations. Keep shooting and practicing. I quit counting at 2k rounds a long time ago.

I keep hearing about a really cool convenience store but I can't find a local franchise! It's called "ATF" which stands for "Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms." That's what I call convenience!
