    Shot for the first time a couple weeks ago, i might be younger then alot of members but being 30 and never shooting a pistol might be different.

    Being so new i cannot remember the names of the guns i tried at the range over the last couple weeks
    Shot a couple different .40s (one magazine each)
    My friends g20 (4 mags)
    five-seven (2 mags)
    then onto the g17 and g19 both 3rd gen put about 100 bullets through each

    took delivery on gen4 g19 yesterday never shot the gen4 but while at the LGS it felt very nice in the hands so took a chance at it since the gen3 g17 and g19 were my two favorites

    hit up the range with friend and busted 7 boxes open (350) tried it with the 4mm backstrap and no backstrap seems great either way, i hold it differently though switching them, need more range time to see what i actually like

    love the gun, i picked up on shooting very well doing good groups at 7-10 yards after that i need alot of work

    purchased for home defense and hobby, figured i would join here to learn new things, and find out tips on the gun in general, shooting tips, maintenance and safety

    great presentation by glock, nice case, cleaning kit, lock, 3 mags, speedloader, user guide and of course IMO beautiful function gun

    Congrats on the great gun a welcome to the club. Sound like you are on the right track so far. One thing I would recommend is to get some training.

    my local range has a class but is booked for months last i heard, i spent a few days just watching people inside the range and asking the "range masters" questions about different guns, but defiantly want to get into a safety class or tactical class

    i respect the gun, and understand how most of it works, so at least i got a little bit to get me started, and some range time made me more comfortable, i wont lie the first time my friend took me to shoot his 10mm i had to use the counting technique :embarassed:
