    Hello everyone. I just wanted to drop a line to introduce myself to fellow Hoosier Glock owners. I just bought my first Glock (and gun for that matter) a couple of weeks ago.

    It was a really hard decision for me to figure out which gun to buy for my first one (almost bought the new Ruger SR9) but ultimately, went with the Glock and couldn't be happier. Everyone's posts on Glocktalk helped make the decision easier.

    Anyway, just been trolling around for a couple of weeks and thought I would say hello.

    I went with the G19 Homeland Defender package (extra magazines, Glock light, night sites, extended magazine and slide release...and a little badging).

    I had been looking at the G17 but am really glad I got the G19 b/c it seems to fit me really well. Unfortunately, I had the hardest time find a place to rent different caliber of Glocks to shoot...so I did not get a chance to try out any of the other ones besides the 9mm. Hopefully, I'll be able to put a couple of rounds through a .45(GAP/ACP)/.40/.357sig etc. to find out which one should be the next purchase...

    The hardest thing to do now is to wait for my CCW and to find places close to me to practice with the G19.

    Sounds like some interesting advice to keep in mind about fellow Hoosier Glock owners...it seems like Indiana has one of the most active State boards on Glocktalk.

    I am located in Greenwood. Work in Bloomington. Drive around North/Central Indiana a lot! I even braved the cold weather at Atterbury last week just so that I could start to break this G19 in.

    On a related note. I was really impressed with the two gun shops in Greenwood: Elmore's and the Outdoorsman Shop. Both had great people and good selections (different selections). I didn't release they were as good of stores as they are until I started actively looking for a new gun.

    Welcome aboard!!

    IIRC, Outdoorsman charges close to full retail on firearms. Try AAC Guns in Mooresville or Plainfield Shooting Supplies, located oddly enough in Plainfiled, just east of the old Galyan's building.

    Both are 10% over dealer cost on new guns. I've worked at both shops, and you'll get good trade-in value and (usually) good advise :supergrin:

    Eagle Creek range opens March 1st. I hope I'm still able to be involved with it.

    In my defense, I do have two Glocks in the safe, but my wife carries them. I like them, it's just that the Springfield is more comfortable in my hand.

    You might check out Marion County Fish and Games' website...
    They have some kind of bowling pin or steel shoot every Sat morning-
    I don't think it's much $(like maybe 5 bucks)..it'll give you some cheap trigger time...
    FWIW I think the G-19 is just a GREAT midsized pistol-(my favorite)

    I am really glad I went with the G19. It seems like a great first gun to build a collection around.

    My wife carries a G26, which is the subcompact version of the G19. She loves hers.

    Welcome to the Indy HTF.

    I am biggl35, aka bigcraig, I don't own any guns, their icky, I am just here to stalk rhino and sjstill. I use to stalk KSFreeman, but being the lawyer that he is, he filed a restraining order against me. Also, KSFreeman really likes to be called "That wacky Brit", really! :whistling:

    That was my first, too. I built a collection around it and about 6 years later, it's one of the only few I have left. Good, all around pistol. Welcome to the forum!!
