    I have got a lot of info here, and i appreciate all of the knowledge I have learned, which lead to my recent purchases. I now have all the proper permits and the guns are in the mail! I am grinding my teeth daily and trying to find a close by range.
    Living in Mass it was a mission!
    I thank you and introduce myself now-

    The two Glocks that are in rought are a G22, at the FFL Dealer, and the G17, still on the paperwork trail. I cant believe that gun is a 1988 Gen 1! 25 year old gun... mint

    I do not know what the average person would pay for one, but this appeared almost new and def. was a Gen 1... I really went for it because of its age and is significane to Glock.. The first year the Serial #'s started with A , B , C ETC and the AA, BB, CC and this one is a BB so it was shipped out just the 2nd year Glock was exporting their pistol. Kind of cool, still waiting on transfer though.

    Will do, still coming, he received payment and I talked to him Wednesday, so he said he would mail the next day... I am weary of using the computer for a gun transaction... but you can't find the selection anywhere else.. Hope it turns out as I hope... or I may post no picture! The Glock 22 gen2 is locked and loaded, I put 100 round of .40 cal and 100 of 9mill, she works perfect, only flaw was that the front "night" sight popped off while shooting, fixed and back at home, I will post picks of both ASAP.. thanks for the friendly greetings-

    The G17 is in, but when I was at the FFL they called and are needed "more time to inquire" about my background... shame the hoops we have in MA. Should have it in 3 days or so, and at that time I will post pics.
    I was unaware that the Gen1 had an adjustable sight.. and the original box has a spot for ammo storage right in the GLOCK carrying case. Will be happy to get pics up ASAP. thanks for the warm welcome-

    One more thing, in the gen2 22, if you turn the slide upside down there is 2 small notches worn out of the metal about half way down... guess I will have to put a pic on here, at the shop the black smith never seen it before on a glock, but the owner of the shop said it is very common?? Any knowledge of the "wearing" to anyone else??
