Hi All: I have never owned a gun....I am considering the purchase of a Gen 3 or 4 G19 or G17. Before I decide I will be taking a intro course to hand guns given at a local shooting range. My wife thinks I am crazy for even considering the purchase of a firearm. I will be spending some time with a relative to shoot his Gen 3 G19 this week....should be interesting. I think the last time I shot a gun was 50 plus years ago.... I look forward to any "words of wisdom"........ Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
