Hey there, new to the forums, new to shooting, just picked myself up a Gen 3 Glock 23 earlier in the week. It will become my every day carry once I can afford to get my permit. I plan on doing competitive shooting with it as well, more for the giggles and being able to meet new people, than to try to win. I used to do paintball, but got really fed up with all the immature little kids that frequent it. So I wanted to trade one expensive hobby for another, and since I'm in Texas, I might as well exercise my rights and make my voice heard, otherwise these rights might go away. So I'm getting into firearms, and it's way too addicting. I plan on getting multiple firearms and will eventually start reloading my own ammunition. Of course, that's once I become rich and famous and can actually afford to do everything I want to do.
