    To be honest, I don't care for Glocks at all. I like the g19 gen3 in FDE and almost bought a blk gen 3 a few years ago. I'm glad I started looking for a Glock because it led me to my M&P's and my newly found HK obsession. So really my love of firearms is partly because of Glock. I may buy one some day but not soon. I suppose if the price was right i'd pick it up ASAP. I'm just happy to be here and am hoping to learn.

    Mostly the look and the grip angle. I know that I can train around the grip angle but I really do love my M&P's I am in no way bashing Glocks. I very well may need to buy a FDE g19 gen 3 so that I can make an actual opinion. Right now my opinion is based off of look and feel. If I shoot one and like it I will excercise my right to like them ;-)

    Thanks for the warm welcome! I'm normally found at Norpoint in Arlington. I used to frequent Sam's in Everett but I believe there's a reason they had to close the doors! Half the people there were cool and the other half not so much. And only being able to fire one round every 3 seconds is the most ludicrous thing I've ever seen or heard of. I want to train for the real world and I don't think that shooting a round with a 3 second pause before the next shot is conducive to muscle memory or when you have an adrenaline dump.

    How bout' you? Where do you shoot at?

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys! I've been a member here since 2009. I've just never posted since last night.

    I remember, clearly, I signed up for: glocktalk, mp-pistol, and xdtalk all at the same time.
