    I bought an OD Green Glock 19 3rd Gen on 4/30/10.

    I used to hate Glocks because of the "boxy" look, and I wanted a Beretta M9 (M90-two to be exact). Because of the external safeties mainly.

    After I did some research and came to my senses, I wisely chose Glock. I don't need a bunch of external safeties probably killing me should I ever need to use my gun.

    I said all that to say this: I LOVE my Glock, it shoots great, recoil is at a minimum, and looks awesome too. I am getting some Glock brand night sights this weekend, just to make it that much better.

    I do not yet have my CCP, but plan to get it soon. I am also 1 of 4 people going for 3 open positions in a local PD.

    I look forward to learning alot from the people here. Thanks!

    Welcome :wavey:

    I don't mean to be all up in your bizness, but are you sure you want your first and last name along with city, state and agency you are applying with in your post? Be easy for them to find you doing a background check and also easy for a pissed off bad guy looking for revenge to track you down on down the road if you get the position. You can't be too careful...

    Also, good luck! :)

    Hello. I kind of agree with you about safeties and the Beretta. My M9 is accurate, reliable, and good-looking, but for CC or HD I depend on my Glocks (22,23,17).

    lol yea, I guess you have a point, oh well. There's MUCH more info about me floating out in cyberspace that if someone wanted to find me they would, whether I put it on here or not.

    But thanks for the concern and the good luck wishes!

    I'd drop the "88" at the end of the name if I were looking into LE. Google it if you don't know the meaning.

    Just googled it, yea, I'm a Nazi alright :upeyes:
    It's my birth year, that's why I have 88 at the end.
