New hand gun owner from Minnesota

Hello everyone. I am glad I found this site. I purchased a
Glock 19 Gen 4 about 5 weeks ago, or, should I say, I ordered it. Still waiting. I am planning on taking a course in a couple of weeks, since I really want to be an informed and responsible handgun owner, and I am a strong believer In Our 2nd amendment rights. I am looking forward to my new Glock, and learning from everyone here in this forum. Thanks.

Steve

Hmm, the OP is saying all the right things. But I don't know, he could still be a Packers fan

Congratulations from the Republic of Texas. New handgun owner? I love it. The more responsible gun owners; the better. You have made a great choice. If it works, never trade it. I wish I had every handgun that worked well I have traded back. When the urge hits for another, wait until you can buy it outright. Handguns are like lays potato chips----you can't have just one.

Just took my NRA basic course, learned a lot of great information. Went to the range with the class, and we shot 22's from 15 yards from bench and standing position. I pretty much sucked at this, all being below bull's eye, but at least I had them grouped. Than our instructor let us shot his Glock, Now, keep in mind, I have not shot any kind of handgun in 40 years (except for my pellet gun). From standing position, 15 yards, all within 1.5", and two in bullseye (only 5 shots) but man, made me feel pretty good about my new purchase. Still waiting for it to come in, but it is going to be worth the wait.
