Hello from South Carolina. Although my wife has had a Glock 19 gen 2 for many years, I just got my first Glock a couple months ago. I tried USPSA with a borrowed gun and loved it, so I went all out and ordered a Glock 17 open gun from Bobby Carver. I love it, and it functions perfectly with both major loads for USPSA, and light loads for steel challenge. I also have found, like most shooting sports, that the people involved are great.
