    Hi Guys,

    I've visited Glock Talk a few times in the past, but never really pulled the trigger to become a contributing member. That is until recently. A buddy of mine convinced me to give the new Glocks another chance to win me over.

    As a life-long 1911 fan, it was a tough sell. I'd purchased a G17, what I now know to call a Gen 1, and almost immediately sold it years ago. It wasn't anywhere as ergonomic as my beloved 1911s and felt like a plastic brick in my hand, so it had to go.

    That was then, this is now. I never thought I'd do it, but I pulled the trigger on another Glock!:wow:

    Just picked up a new Gen 4 Glock 17 with adjustable sights. Didn't like the fixed sight version and didn't want to hassle trying to regulate point of aim with point of impact. Didn't need night sights and the extra cost was a turn-off as well, so the adjustable model fit my needs ideally.

    So far I'm enjoying the new pistol. As I get to know it better, I'm sure I'll be posting/contributing more here on the forum.

    See you guys in the funny papers!:wavey:

    Great White North = Canada! I'm actually located in its easternmost province, Newfoundland. I see that you're near Philly. Well, about half the light-sweet crude oil all those tankers are off-loading into the holding tanks for your oil refineries in PA, started out from our off-shore oil wells about a week before. :)

    We sell a lot of hydro-electric power to New England also. (Put it this way, if we took a couple of turbines off-line at our Churchill Falls generating station, the lights go out from Maine to New York. A lot of American hunters head here for moose, caribou and black bear hunts, along with world-class Atlantic Salmon fishing.

    A lot of Newfoundlanders headed south in the early 20th century and helped build much of NYC. Newfies and Mohawks didn't have a problem working high steel (we were used to working high in the rigging of the thousands of Grand Banks fishing schooners that used to prosecute the banks Cod fishery back then.) Others hooked up with Mass., RI, NY, & Maine lasses when in port and married 'em, eventually settling in and becoming transplanted Americans. Believe me, I've got tons of "American Cousins.":patriot:

    Anyhow, thanks for the warm welcome guys! Feels like coming home! :)
