Hopefully this is specific enough for this forum. I'm not yet a Glock owner (or a shooter for that matter) but I can't imagine that my first pistol won't be a Glock. After lurking for about a month on the boards and doing some searching of the Valuable Info archives I've got some idea but I was wondering what the essential tools to have/use a handgun (for the sake of the thread rules specifically a Glock in this case)? Here's what I've come up with so far. 1) The gun (duh!) 2) Locking case for transport 3) Trigger lock (seems to be necessary in most states) 4) Rags or other cleaning cloths 5) Lube 6) Solvent 7) A bore snake and/or a cleaning rod for cleaning the barrel 8) Trustworthy ammo and a good supplier 9) A good place to practice (range or a large isolated area owned by yourself or a friend) In addition Connecticut, for some stupid reason, also requires you to have a carry permit or a certificate of eligiblity to own (but not to rent at a range or borrow), both of which take about 8 weeks to get. I didn't want to add that since that didn't seem like a universal requirement. Did I miss anything and/or are any of those not absolutely necessary?
