I am brand-new to Glock Talk and Band of Glockers, and this is my very first posting! I am a Filipino-American and by chance came across this forum. My parents are from the Philippines although I was born here in the USA. I speak and read Tagalog very well (even though I've been to the PI only once, when I was 5), and make excellent lumpia (which is important, no?). I love my heritage and want to further enhance my appreciation for our rich culture, while at the same time share a common interest in Glocks. So why not combine the two? I also like the postings here - they remind me of my family. he he he I am naturally a pretty good aim/shooter - or so I've been told, and judging from the last set of hostage and other targets I shot. I enjoy going to the local club and shooting a rented Glock 17. Very relaxing. I don't own a Glock yet, but when the time comes for a decision, I am hoping for some guiding and input from this community. Salamat po! ;?
