Never had an interest in the past

I don't know why but just never had an interest in Glocks in the past. A few weeks ago I spoke with a friend who started telling me about them in detail.

Well, I bought one that week and a week later I have 3 Glocks.

I am really intrigued with this platform and I came here to learn more.

I hope I can be an asset to this forum.

Which Glocks did you buy?

Have you taken them to the range yet?

Have you decided upon which one is likely to be your daily carry (EDC)?

I have the 17, the 19 and the 26. I have not fired the 26 yet and I'm not sure if i will like it. I do like the other two that I have shot.

Thanks to everyone for the welcome.

This may not be the right place to ask so if someone could point me in the right direction. Two questions off the bat, most recommended spare parts to keep on hand and is using Froglube ok on Glocks?

Like I said, this is probably not the place but if someone could point me to get started.

Thanks again for the welcomes. I hope things slow down so I can spend more time learning about this site.

Thanks

Welcome to your new home! I would suggest asking those in the GATE (go ask the experts) sections. I am not certified, but I don't think frog lube could hurt anything! They don't need much lubing though...

Shoot the 26, you will most likely love it! Prob be your EDC. I'm sure Froglube will be fine, though I only use Ballistol on my guns.

I use FrogLube on my 26 and it is fantastic.

I was in exactly the same boat about 6 weeks ago when I purchased my first Glock, a 23. I liked shooting it but it did take me sometime to get accustomed to the trigger. 2 weeks later I added a 17. Thus far I have added night sights to both and a 3.5 pound trigger kit to the 17. Have not got to shoot it with the kit yet but was disappointed. Prior to installation of the kit the pull was 7 pounds and adding the kit only dropped it to 6. The reset is much better. I have been considering a 26 or 27 as well but have not pulled the trigger on it yet. Right now my eye is on an H&K UPS in 40...
