Greetings from Chicago

I've been shooting and "collecting" firearms for the better part of two decades. All of my shooting has been related to military time (USMC) and my career. Despite this, I have become a "gun guy" only in the past few years. I'm not sure why it's taken that long.

Since this is an introductory post I'll keep it short and on point. I am a huge fan of Glock pistols. My EDPOC (every day pistol of choice) is a G23. It's stock with no mods. I have recently transitioned to a Galco shoulder rig, but before that I was using a Blackhawk Serpa.

I choose Glock because of the ease of use, ease of field stripping and confidence that I have in the pistol and in me using it.

I don't claim to be an expert, but will share my thoughts should someone have questions. I'll be asking questions also. I look forward to being a part of Glock Talk!

Welcome from "south of I-80". My favorite old pistol is a G23 I bought in the 90's when I lived in Blue Island, IL. I think it's the most reliable thing I own!
