    Howdy to everybody!

    I have been a gun guy for 30 something years, have never owned anything but all metal and I am now ready to take the plunge.

    Been wanting a high cap 9mm defensive handgun for a while so within the next couple of weeks I will purchase a Glock, most likely a Model 19 gen 3.

    I am looking forward to learning on this cool forum.

    Thanks everybody!

    And I see NJ is well represented here. This state sure is unique. Plenty of outdoorsy stuff, fishing, camping, hunting, the whole Seashore thing, great food and entertainment in the cities, man I could go on and on. We get a bad rap from others, but I wouldn't trade anything for my lifelong experience here.

    I am in NW part of state and love the rural life. Except for our silly gun laws, I like it here.

    Outdoor opportunities abound, but good food places, not so much. That's when a little road trip becomes necessary for some awesome pizza or Italian bread. But other then that, no complaints from me.

    As far a handguns go, I am really looking forward to getting me a Glock. I just feel that for a fighting type handgun, a Glock is pretty much the top tier. And that's coming from a guy with a couple of nice 1911s.

    OK, sorry for being so long winded.

    Thanks guys!
    Just put a deposit down on a G19 Gen4 this morning, but having some second thoughts due to a lot of negative opinions. I'm wondering if Gen 3 is the way to go.

    Hey jorj, welcome. I'm located in Morris county and shoot at RTSP in Randolph. Welcome to the world of plastic guns! :wavey:

    I hope you have a thick skin. There's a lot of NJ bashing that goes on here at GT.

    Hey GlockinNJ,
    Thanks for the welcome. I don't mind the bashing. NJs got good and bad, like everywhere else. Yea, some crazy stuff happens here, but it makes life interesting, ha ha.

    I do get a laugh though, when an out-of-stater lands at Newark Airport, and like a miracle, suddenly becomes an expert on everything about New Jersey and all who live here.

    Anyways, Glocks, Glocks, Glocks. I will make up my mind soon; gen3 or gen4.

    Don't worry, the newer Gen4's are good. When your in the store ask to check the RSA and ejector to see which on is in it. I believe the latest RSA is 043, and the ejector is 30274.
