    I've been shooting and "collecting" firearms for the better part of two decades. All of my shooting has been related to military time (USMC) and my career. Despite this, I have become a "gun guy" only in the past few years. I'm not sure why it's taken that long.

    Since this is an introductory post I'll keep it short and on point. I am a huge fan of Glock pistols. My EDPOC (every day pistol of choice) is a G23. It's stock with no mods. I have recently transitioned to a Galco shoulder rig, but before that I was using a Blackhawk Serpa.

    I choose Glock because of the ease of use, ease of field stripping and confidence that I have in the pistol and in me using it.

    I don't claim to be an expert, but will share my thoughts should someone have questions. I'll be asking questions also. I look forward to being a part of Glock Talk!

    Welcome from "south of I-80". My favorite old pistol is a G23 I bought in the 90's when I lived in Blue Island, IL. I think it's the most reliable thing I own!
