Long time lurker who has finally decided to join. I figured it was time to since I became a Glock owner last week. I have a confession, I never have liked the way Glocks looked, so I sort of brushed them off and said I'd never own one. Then recently, I went to the range with a buddy and shot his 23 and loved it. Due to the economy and things being tight, I couldn't afford to go out and buy a new Glock, so what I decided to do was put my Shield .40 up for trade. I ended up getting a blue label 23 (100 rds through it and no signs of wear) with 5 magazines, box, papers and all the goodies in an even trade for my Shield with normal straight from the factory stuff. Needless to say, I was very pleased with the deal and now I'm sipping the Kool Aid. Can't wait to learn from you guys and gals.
