Figured it was time to overcome my fear of firearms. After much reading and research I came to the conclusion GLOCK was the way to go. Just received a 19C G3 order through Gallery of Guns and I'm anxious to go to the range upon my return home from a brief business trip abroad. Reading the different forums in Glock Talk helped a lot to encourage me to take up the sport with higher caliber firearms after enjoying my Crossman 3177 air gun in my back yard trashing soda cans. That' fun too, but nothing like the real thing. Having read a lot in the past months on the subject of firearms there is no doubt there's a great deal of responsibility involved in owning and using guns. I hope to enjoy it as much as I enjoy fishing and photography here in south Florida.
