    I was surprised to find that I was registered here, I don't ever remember posting, but then I've never owned a Glock. I'm currently saving my money for a Glock 19 to replace the M9 Steyr I'm going to sell. I like the Steyr but I've been shooting a friends Glock and I just love it. I have a P11 Keltec for carry and I will be carrying the Glock 19 also.

    I thought about a Glock in 357 SIG, however, the ammo is expensive. Neat round though.

    I'm thinking of purchasing a Blackhawk holster and a few extra mags when I buy it.

    I own a Steyr S9-A1 and I doubt I'll ever be convinced to part with it. I own a 3-Gen Glock and I feel the same way about that pistol.

    I'm so happy and satisfied with these two quality Austrian pistols that I'm becoming bored with the idea of acquiring any more handguns.

    I'm down here in Poplar Bluff; I used to be a recruiter in St Louis in the late
    80's and lived off of Lucas and Hunt...it was a mess then, but so is my hometown of Memphis.

    It's pretty quiet down here except for the families killing each other over a beer or a dog.

    I like my Steyr, but it's just not that great. But, I've found that if I hold off selling a gun I tend to keep it.

    I went back to the gun shop today and looked some more. I thought about it last night and I figure, I'm keeping the Steyr and going for a Glock in .45. I like the 21SF, but I saw another one with a shorter grip that held, I think 12 rounds of 45 ACP, a Glock 30?

    Anyway I can get it or the used 21 SF for under $500 with two mags. I'm thiking hard about that Glock 30.

    Welcome, lived just outside Cape Girardeau (on the ridge between Delta & Advance) for 10 years, then Columbia for 5 and I am currently "Colorado Rocky Mountain High". Missouri has some pretty good gun and Castle Doctrine laws, you should also check out the Missouricarry.com forum.

    I grew up in Doniphan, MO but I live in Poplar Bluff, the Cultural Capital of the Bootheel. Went to college at Cape Girardeau.

    I also served 4 years in the USAF in the early 70s and another 24 years in the Air National Guard.

    I think I'm going for the Glock 21. I think the grip is too short on the Glock 30 and this is mostly a woods or truck gun anyway.

    I'm on the Missouri Carry Forum. They have been very helpful.
