Just two things......

Don't lie about long you've been here, and always remember Florida before you remember that "OTHER" state "up north" you used to live in before coming to G-d's country. (And yes, this of course most certainly includes those 'transplants' from Georgia too. ;-) )

They are on the N side of SR60 in Valrico, behind the Goodwill Store, on the second floor of a shopping plaza back off the road in the back.

Welcome to FL to the new folks on GT.

Once you settle down, you have to choose up sides and decide which FLORIDA team to support. As for me, GO GATORS!

Hello all, my name is TJ, I live in Okeechobee, FL. I've been here since birth, 23 years ago. Currently, shooting IDPA at the local range with a Glock 19. I'm hooked. I've been lurking here for quite a while and just decided to join.

Hello fellow Floridians..Jimmy checking in from Jacksonville..I grew up around guns but really caught the bug back in 2004 again and haven't stopped since then.

I was always a 1911 type and the first Glock I ever shot was a G21 and it just didn't feel right in my hands..i figured all Glocks were like that so, never gave them another shot (literally...LOL)

I started competing in FDCC and CFDCC and found that mag capacity limited me in some regards and it seemed that almost everyone was running glocks so, I tested out a G17 and ABSOLUTELY fell in love...That was about 8 months ago and now I have three glocks and my G17 is my EDC..I can't believe it took my this long to see the light..

I frequent other forums and go by the same screen name (AKA Jboy723) so, hopefully I already know a few here..Just wanted to expand my knowledge on the Glock platform cause I forsee that the Glock is going to be my side for a VERY long time...

Hey Glockers, names Garrett, 25yo. I live in Orlando, and have been trolling GT for a long time. Hope all's well, hope to meet some of you sometime!

Not a comp shooter, but definitely proficient with many firearms. Been shooting since I was 7 or 8 and haven't stopped since. Went from HK to Sig to GLOCK! Thanks for all the helpful posts.

New here and new to guns. I've always wanted a gun and to learn about them but other hobbies took first. Found out a neighbor who also does a lot of track driving with me knows a lot about guns and he took me to the range to see if I liked it. This was last month January 6th and at that time all I wanted was to learn to shoot and get my concealed permit to carry a gun sometimes due to my work travels, late night driving and basically living in hotels.

Well that day at the range and my friends coaching realy took and I fell into a new hobby that I'm trying to absorb everything I can about. I joined my local range and have been going to the range about every 3-4 days for a couple of hours. I bought a Glock G27 and took a lesson and took a concealed course and am waiting for my license.

Now I want more guns. The G27 is a little small for lots of range work so I'm thinking of getting a full size 9mm for the range, full size .45 for home along with a shot gun. I got to shoot my friends Mossberg 12 gauge and had a blast with it.

Anyone else from Tampa...hit me up....if you go to the range at Shoot Straight in Tampa maybe I'll meet you there.

Mike

Welcome mdrums - Sounds like you have caught the disease of gun ownership.

+1 on your G27. Great pistol. I have one, and know several who do. I know two cops who carry the G27 as a backup to either their G22 or G23. If you want something bigger for range work, try a G23. It's a bigger handful, but still small enough to conceal. Some foks conceal a G22 too, but your mileage may vary (they are a popular police uniform pistol). If you go for a G23, you have ammo uniformity with the G27, and it's plenty enough for a range or night stand pistol.

+1 on the shotgun too. I sold mine when I left police work a bit over 20 years ago. I finally bought a new shotgun this past December, a Mossberg 590A1, 18.5" barrell. Nice shotgun.
