    I was looking to buy a handgun and a LE friend recommended the Glock 19 or 43, so I went to a local shooting range two weeks ago. I got to shoot around 9 different handguns starting with a 22 with almost no recoil and worked up to the 9mm Glock 19.

    Loved the Glock 48 and 43x, so I bought the 48 they had in stock (passed on the 43x that had pink swirls on the barrel) along with some target and Hornady Critical Defense ammo. A week later I went to another shooting range and bought my 43x. :dancing:

    Would love to get my CHL now, but we are socially distancing, so it will have to wait.

    I'm open to any advice and recommendations on accessories, etc. Thank you!
