New Gun Owner

I've always liked guns and have fired different rifles and handguns over the years but never owned one. After the recent events in the news I figured it was time to buy one. Just picked up my new Glock model 22 last week. Would have been earlier but California has a stupid waiting period.

Welcome Steve! That's a gnarly Camaro in your avatar. Did you build it?

Fantastic choice!

My first was a g23. Be sure to pick up a 9mm conversion barrel and some g17 magazines if you want to shoot 9mm out of it someday.

from a fellow G22 owner. I hope you're as happy with yours as I've been with mine!

Sounds like you've had a great time with it! Most SB Camaros with AC don't lift like that!
