    Hi all,

    I'm a total noob to the Glock family, as I just recently bought my 1st G17. I must say, I simply LOVE this weapon, I cant wait to get out to the shooting range on weekends and pull off a few rounds, a like a kid in a candy store springs to mind :) I hoop to learn lots from the old "guns" out there!

    I think the 17 is the best handgun in the world :)

    Hello! The G17 is a great platform. Grab some 33 round glock OEM mags! Stay away from promag, and scherer. Not sure if scherer is still around though.

    Just curious, can you buy a FA sear and selector slide cover plate switch in South Africa ? You can't here.

    Hi, from South Carolina.
    I never fired a Glock until I went to work (about 10 years ago) for an armed security agency. Then I had to qualify, and re-qualify quarterly, with a Glock .40 cal. We used the model 22 and model 27.
    I learned, very quickly, to appreciate the Glock design, as well as its accuracy and reliability. [They will eat anything in their caliber!] My aging hands now have a keener appreciation for the 9mm round, and I think you will love your model 17. After you've fired 50 rounds or so, give us an update on your love affair!
