First Time Gun Owner!

Hey everyone. I just bought my gun. It's a Glock 22 Gen 4. I rented it at the range and I fell in love with it.

I bought it new from GunBroker.com and I should be getting it in by Wednesday, hopefully!

I live in Illinois and I live in the wonderful state of Illinois and I live in Cook "Crooked" County.

Hopefully, I'll become a familiar face and I have tons of questions of my Glock and gun maintenance!

Welcome to the Glock club and forum.

One piece of advice, go ahead and start saving for your
next Glock, they're like those danged potato chips,
you can't have just one.

I see the new Oldsmobiles are in early this year.

I never buy ammo in Cook County. I either get it from Cabelas in Indiana or I order it online. Indiana is 25 mins from me and I live 3 mins from the next county over.

I agree with the rest in saying start saving for your next new glock. My second word of advice would be to move out of Illinois lol.

Haha. We all hate Illinois. My buddy and I might go half half on an AK 47. I might also buy a Mosin Nagant 91/30. My other buddy has one and they are amazing!
