Intro. from Arkasnas

Hello the forum.

I'm just Tommy , a guy in Arkansas who stumbled across the forums while looking for info. on a Glock.
I recently horse traded for a Glock 22 (40 S&W), 4 magazines, about 400 rounds ammo. and hard case.

I've never owned a Glock nor anything in .40 S&W before... but this deal was too good to pass up. I've not convinced myself that I want to keep this pistol........ yet, anyways.

Otherwise, I shoot when I can, have shot some NRA HP rifle matches in the past, piddle with a couple old muzzle loaders, an RWS54 in .177, etc., fish (badly) on the lakes around Hot Springs, and ride my '96 Kaw. 800 and wrench on it when I have to, and read quite a bit.

I'll likely be reading here a lot more than posting, particularly for some while now.... lots to learn I am thinking.
Any other questions, no prob.
Tommy

SE Ark. has some nice areas too, although I'm pretty much a hillbilly at heart.
Spelling names and places, eh?... I lived in Louisiana for 14 years. Now, THEY have some real doozies.
Thanks for the welcome.

from another G22 owner. I'm real pleased with mine. There are also barrel inserts if you decide you want to shoot something other than .40, though I don't have any experience with them myself. Bulk ammo on the internet is the way to buy if you like to shoot. There's also a strong bunch of reloaders on the forum as well.
