    After months of lurking and looking for info I decided to finally join GT. Lifelong Chicagoan (not for much longer lol) and huge fan of glocks. First glock and first handgun was a 17.5 that I picked up at 8am on my 21st birthday. Been infected with the bug and since then I have grabbed quite a few more including another 17.5, a 19.5 MOS, a 26.5, 34.5 MOS, and a 19x.

    Looking forward to learning and sharing info with ya'll.

    Welcome!

    Nice collection you have going.

    Our condolences on your local political leadership.

    I bought my first pistol on my 21st birthday, too (S&W 5906 for me).

    Enjoy the site!

    So
    X

    White Sox if you want to go actually see a baseball game. Cubs if you're just looking to go get trashed.

    I've considered Hammond a few times. Gotta stay close to work though.

    I've been out of the Windy since '86, rooted for the Sox in '05, and was ridiculed by my northside friends. In a Cubs-Sox showdown...CUBS.

    2016 was a fairy tale, a dream come true.

    Of course, we can only dream about a subway series!
