Aloha Hello

...from C&C of Honolulu, Hawaii.

After meeting the requirements to purchase a handgun over 15 years ago, I finally decided on a Gen 3 Glock 31 at the end of 2012, a few days after the buying surge... Lucky me.

Because of the surge, I almost ended up with a Gen 4 Glock 22 because the salesperson thought all the 31's were gone. I figured I could convert the 22 to 357 Sig rather easily. While getting a feel for the 22 I was scanning the display case and saw a .357 tag "hiding" on a lower shelf. Hmmm... standard frame... 31... HEY!!

Anyway, now I have to go shoot some lotta pistol rounds to catch up with all of my rifle shooting. Hopefully this won't generate any "what's wrong with me/my handgun" questions.

I know what you mean. The once-proud city is nothing more than a ghetto.

When I was growing up, a girl could walk through South Philly at any time of night with no fears. Today? Ha! Yoosta be Market Street, Chestnut Street, and Walnut Street were safe all the time. Today?

Sadly, all our once-great cities are now decaying from within. It's like a cancer.

'Nuff said. Don't want to hijack the thread.
