Hello from Georgia.

Hello there,

I got my new Glock17 a couple of weeks ago, took a safety and handling class before I bought it and another class for beginners after. Being going to a shooting range every time I have a chance and extra money to buy ammo. I read and try to learn in ways that you guys would not believe it so thats why I'm here. See ya.

In what ways do you learn that we would not believe?

Glock 17 is one of my favorite guns

That's good.

Have you heard yet about the most common way's to AD?

A. Not checking the gun before dryfire. That's why I suggest a triple check. 3 checks in a row, to provide a mental break before finger goes on trigger.

B. Not keeping a Glock type gun securely holstered. For my Glock's, I treat a quality kydex holster that fits well and covers the trigger guard as part of the safety system. Not taking the gun out to fark with it much goes a long ways toward staying safe.

See how well that attitude fits in with those you observe. In addition to the 4 basic safety rules Hopefully you already know those 4 rules by memory
