    ...and it's quite unfortunate that this state. along with some other states, has befallen upon such a tradegy to be subject to silly gun control measures that really don't do anything to stop bad criminal actors, but instead confuse civil and law abiding citizens [subjecting them to government tyranny] alas, simple people who just want to own some gats; but this false sense of security is the stuff that sells and gets manipulated by politicians and government officials... since it possibly makes people feel safer- the world's a stage and all you need is some security theater to make your average citizen feel as if some law(s) will suddenly make the world a peaceful utopia; clearly no matter what laws you may come up with, an individual or group of individuals will reivent the wheel and find a magic loophole.

    Anyways, I've been a long time aficionado of gats and gun ownership, but I've only received my first handgun [the classic G17] as of last summer, which means I'm a relatively new gun owner, but I'm quite thrilled to be a part of this community and it's pretty cool to be part of this forum that revolves around the magnificent Austrian plastic fantastic handgun :aod: despite it's outlandish reputation amongst certain gun owners, it's still one helluva gat.


    Thank you for your attention and for reading.

    Welcome to GT. The G-17 is a great firearm.

    Welcome to GT Sabbathblack

    Legal gun owners will self-incriminate themselves.
    That is how they`ll get your guns (RED FLAG LAWS)
    NY is the roll model for red flag laws. Leave NY as fast as you can!

    And don`t go to texas either. They`ll be flipped soon, to blue!

    I too am a New York born guy. Was a Nassau county Cop way back in 69-70 before going active duty Army to vacation in Vietnam.
    It's a shame I can never go back as I will not travel without at least a couple of handguns on me. Been carrying every day of my life with few exceptions.
    New York has become worse than the "nanny state" as it is now downright communist!
    The Glocks are habit forming. I started with a Glock 21SF that I was forced to buy for use on the Police range to qualify instead of my custom 1911's. Hated Glocks till I was top shooter on qualifying with that 21SF right out of the box. Didn't have time to even sight it in, but was #1 shooter! That kinda made me an instant Glock fan! Now I have quite a few!
    Enjoy this forum, and watch out for becoming a member of Glockaholics Anonymous!

    Welcome to GT. Glocks are great guns and are extremely reliable and I like the mode of operation that you can carry it with around in the chamber and it's good to go. The G43 is a good carry gun and 6+1 rounds is good enough for me. I've learned a lot about Glocks from this forum and I like the General discussions forums as well.

    I lived in New York when I was a kid in a town called Lockport on the Erie Canal near Niagara Falls and Buffalo.

    Considering the way the state is today I'm glad my parents moved away from there when I was about 11 yrs old but they moved to California and now it's just as bad but I was able to move away from there when it got really bad.
