Hi everyone, I've been off of GT for quite a few months now. I've been activated for almost a year and in Iraq for about 6 months. This has been my first real chance to get back on and say Hi. We've had all kinds of stuff happen. Mostly IED's (roadside bombs), and about 15 people killed from my batallion, but we've been shot at some...and shot back some. The shooting we've done has been almost exclusively at vehicles. It's been pretty quite lately except for many very inaccurate mortars falling harmlessly. Anyway. I've seen alot of Glocks over here, but they've all been civilian contractors...and almost all have been Glock 19's. In fact, I don't think I've seen any full size Glocks at all. I did see a few young soldiers with Mk23's. I was shocked, and when I asked them about it, they had no idea what an incredible gun they were carrying. They were in a Forward Support Batallion. They were all carring them in their pockets or belts because they couldn't find any holsters to carry them in, and they had no .45ACP ammo for them anyway. I was under the impression that only Special Forces / Operations units were using them but apparently they a few lucky soldiers got issued them somehow. Coincidentally, the SF guys that we occasionally work with all are carrying Beretta's like mine. Go figure! I would love to trade in my Beretta for one, but I have another 6 months before I can play with a Glock again. Well, that's it for me. I really just wanted to say Hi since it's been so long and I used to be on GT every day.
