Greetings from the UK

Evening all,
As you may be aware, The British Army has just awarded a contract to glock to provide the next combat handgun. (Gen 4 17's)

As my job in life is as an Armourer (different to the US army armorer job) I'll be responsible for around 600 of the things. Receipt inspection, annual, repairs and modifications etc.
Thought I'd join up here to get a heads up.

Member on a few other forums as well, I shoot over here, mainly shotgun at them moment.
Hoping for a chance to emigrate to Canada or the USA in a few years when I leave the army (22 yrs done in just over 3 yrs time)

I would offer my sister for marriage to get a freedom lover naturalized, but she is nuttier than squirrel dung and communist so that's out.

Welcome to the forum though.

Welcome! My son has just recently been stationed in your country (USAF.) I hope to visit there sometime in the coming year. Come on over to this side of the pond when you can!

Welcome to the forum though.
You're a good man, nursetim!

Now in all seriousness, (time to make a motion), I move we begin the GlockTalk reciprocity program. All those in favor of sending Piers Moron back, and replacing him with our new UK Chap who is about to be a Glock armorer, signify by saying "I".....
