    Are there any Glockers near Omaha, NE? I'd really like to find somebody around here that would be willing to help me out at the range with technique and whatnot.

    I just purchased my first handgun (G31) 2 or 3 weeks ago and have had to try and teach myself how to shoot. I won't try and say that I'm a good shot, at most I'm capable of defending myself in my home at fairly short ranges, but thats not good enough for me. I don't want to form any bad shooting habits.

    Anyway, if you happen to shoot up at the Bullet Hole at all please drop me a line, I'd really appreciate it. The only shooting my friends do is either with rifles or with MY Glock and I won't learn a thing from them.

    Thanks,
    Jeff Schjodt

    I would recommend coming to one of these bowling pin shoots. They are very informal, alot of fun, and you will have the opportunity to meet many other shooters in the area.

    I don't shoot at the Bullet Hole often because I live closer to Lincoln so I mostly utilize the outdoor ranges.

    There are about 20-25 members here on GT from Nebraska that I know of.

    Thanks for the replys guys. I would definately like to attend one of the bowling pin matches, even if it's just as a spectator for the first time.

    Seriously consider going to the bowling pin matches. If it wasn't for my work schedule I'd go to each and every one, but I can't so I only make it to a few of them. I need more sick days:) Your G31 will be a good gun for those matches. I loose almost every match and still have a great time, plus it makes great practice. Just this year I qualified at work with a perfect pistol score. I blame it on practicing with bowling pin targets (little human silouetts basically!)

    Thanks for the replies guys. The good news is that my shooting is improving, as I've been hitting the range very hard lately. This week alone I've put 600+ rounds downrange (357glocker, I'll save todays brass for you!).
    In 2 weeks or so I'm going to be purchasing at least 1 new Glock (but quite likely 2), who has the best prices around here? I paid too much for my G31 at Guns Unlimited because I was impatient and wanted it now! lol. Also, who has the cheapest FFL transfer fees in case I decide to order one?

    I am now absolutely hooked on Glocks and shooting in general. It's expensive, but oh so fun!

    ;f

    600+ rounds;P Maybe you should start to reload also! Call Carl Jarl locksmith on 114th and I. He does transfers and has always had good service for me. Best prices in Omaha, hmmm? G.U. always has run high on prices, might try scheels or keep an eye on the classified ads in the paper. Which model are you looking for?

    I want to get a G33 and an OD G19. New on both would be preferable. I'm also looking to get a shiney new Bushmaster rifle as well. :cool:

    Unfortunately, I know nothing about reloading. I'm sure I'll look into it eventually, but I need to learn quite a bit more about firearms, shooting, and ammo first.

    Have you tried asking at the Bullet Hole? I would imagine that they could pair you up with an instructor.
