    I am a Ruger fan that purchased a Glock G44 for a new range firearm. I love rimfire shooting and tested this G44 and decided to try Glock out. I have looked for a G34 for a new range firearm project and have shot my daughters G19 and G44 in the past and have grown to like them. Glad to be here on this forum and hear from real Glock users not the internet gurus. Love my country and raising my granddaughter. Since my wife and I lost our son in 2015 I have been learning semi-autos and getting back into shooting. I love my revolvers and all my Ruger's but glad to have found Glock to my liking. I have been looking at this site for awhile and decided to join.

    Glocks are like potato chips. You can't just have one.

    Welcome!!! I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I lost my first wife when she was only 26. Today I am remarried and back on track but it took years. So kudos to you and your survival and awesome family. And welcome to Glock ownership. I just started with Glock recently. I already own two and I want more.

    Someone stated these Glocks are addictive. They are correct. Started out looking for a G34 or G19. Ended up with a G44. When the LGS finds me a G34 for the range I will also get a G19.
