Greetings from New England

Howdy folks.

Though it wasn't planned, I purchased my first Glock, yesterday. While perusing the inventory at my LGS, I bought a G19 with night sights, on impulse.

I am normally act in a very deliberate and thoughtful manner, but yesterday I snagged that G19 like a kid might buy a piece of bubblegum.

I watched a few YouTube videos and field stripped the pistol several times. I'm going to clean and lube it tonight, and hope to get the range, as soon as Hurricane Sandy has passed.

I'm looking forward to browsing the forum, and learning from the seasoned pros. If you have any "must read" threads, please point me in the right direction.

Onward,

Roland

From a fellow New Englander. I'm in Rhode Island. You think bac's 71,000 posts are impressive? Wait until you see his gun collection.

Advice for your Glock. Clean, lube scantily, shoot the heck out of it. Repeat.
