    hi everyone,

    I've been lurking around this forum for quite some time and i find members so friendly so i decided to join and gain some knowledge on the sport of shooting. I really wanted to learn a lot and maybe its high time that I start to get involve.

    To start with, I just purchased a G17 recently (influenced by the positive reviews and comments from this forum), which I think is very much suitable for a beginner like me.

    thank you very much.

    Welcome aboard, Wally. Have you taken your G17 to the range yet? How was it?

    Thanks guys for the warm welcome.


    mikey177,

    Unfortunately the G17 will be arriving on November as what the guys said from the gunstore where i purchased the unit. Just made a reservation to avail their tempting discounts on their glocks. Hopefully by November i can take it to the range, familiarize myself with proper gun handling, and, join you guys to learn the basics of the sport, and most especially gain friends who share the same interests.

    Okay Wally, good for you.

    If you're free, try going to the 3rd anniversary of the Band of Glockers on Nov. 15. The details regarding the event are still being discussed in this thread.

    Why wait for your pistol, there are lots of guys who will give you a loaner, that way when you get your pistol you already have basic kowledge.

    Welcome Wally!

    The shooting ranges also have guns you can rent for 200/300 pesos. Ang tagal pa ng November ;f
