    I figured it is a good starter gun.. I don't know much about guns (just love shooting them) but I went with the Gen4 model. I hope I made the right decision? Anyways, this site is awesome I can already tell I'm going to learn a ton from it.

    Honestly i'm really new to shooting. But the first handgun I shot was a G20 and G29, then a few months later a Ruger Alaskan somethin snubnose which my friend handloads really powerful .44s? i'm not sure, exactly what round it shoots but he said it is one of the most powerful pistols and if I can shoot that well (which took some practice.. the explosion out of the barrel is enormous) he said I can shoot any handgun now.

    Long story short, only shot maybe 50 rounds out of it so far but compared to what my friend^ has... holy ****, its a piece of cake. I don't flinch at all and I'm wayy more accurate now.

    Starting to rambel, just wanted to introduce because I'm probably going to become a regular here :tongueout:
    Any advice regarding using GT.com or even my G17 would really be appreciated.

    Now its time to find the newbie forum... :embarassed:
