I've had my GSSF coupon for 6 months and i've been meaning to take plunge but kept buying 1911s... Finally started calling around and apparently Glocks are on back order... I was set on driving about an hour away to pick up a Glock 17 (i figured a 9mm would be cheaper to shoot...) but figured i'd stop by the local GSSF dealer... 25 min later i walked out with the paperwork for the last Glock 36 that they had in stock. No other 9mm or 45acp pistols were available and i saved myself the headache of traveling in Friday rush hour... I have to wait for the paperwork to be processed since MD only allows me to purchase one handgun every 30 days (and i just recently picked up a Compact Springfield 1911.. but im itching! I cant wait to ensure its reliability and leave the LCP at home. I have no complaints with the Compact 1911s in terms of reliability or accuracy but they are heavy... the idea with the 36 is that i'll have all the goodies of the 1911s, with less weight.. and arguably a more durable finish. Giggity!
