    Greetings,

    I'm more of a forum reader than a forum poster, but I figured I'd introduce myself.

    Originally from Upstate NY, I'm living in Atlanta now. Thought about owning a handgun for some time now and after doing much research before I was actually in the market, I decided on a Glock - specifically a Glock 19. Some range time and a safety course later, I made the purchase this past Saturday. Sorry, no pictures!

    I went with the Gen 4 and what a difference the backstraps make! Holding my own gun felt pretty small in my hands, but I added the large strap and it feels perfect.

    I'm not at the point where I'd be comfortable carrying everyday during every activity, but I am thinking about holsters and what I think would work for me.

    That's about it. Hoping to make it to the range on Thursday. Good Glockin'

    Welcome south and enjoy your new glock. Upstate NY is pretty but unfortunately it's still NY state
