    Yup, there definitely is. I haven't even received my first glock yet. (G32 to be delivered next weekend) and I'm already trying to figure out which one I'm going to get next! I'm leaning towards the 26 BTW.

    I lived in NC and run a screenprinting/embroidery business. I work late some nights and have some shady neighbors in the area. Just bought it for my own protection. One of my best friends is a class 3 gun dealer so he's going to show me the ropes this weekend at the range. I also took the intro to firearms class last weekend at the local gun shop and had a blast.

    I'm learning lots as I read and look forward to getting in on the action soon.

    Guns are addictive. Having a friend that is a gun dealer = enabler.

    Watch out, your wallet might be in bigger danger from you :whistling:


    Have fun :supergrin:

    Me too. I feel the same way. The Glock bug bit me.

    He IS an enabler. He'll get me anything I want at his cost.

    G32 brand new = $440

    Why do I always pick the most expensive hobbies??

    Update: I have an appointment at a range on Monday for 3 hours of private instruction. I am so pumped I can't stand it. I will be sure to let everyone know how it goes.

    Order a Glock 23 barrel for the 32 and you can shoot .40S&W too! Good deal on getting some training. Welcome

    I admire that Uncle Ben and others that get training. I wish more people would.
    Welcome to the site too.

    I have 12 Glocks (including a G32) and I understand your situation! You might consider a G30 (not SF) next and then begin your 9mm hunt! Hang in there!

    By the way, my G32 is my most-carried pistol with the G30 coming next.

    Thanks guys. I figure that if I'm actually going to carry or possibly use something that could kill someone (or myself) I might as well know how to use it. I would really be scared to own a gun with no training. Maybe I'm wierd...or just responsible. Either way I think it should be required to have at least a little knowledge about how to handle firearms.

    In your rear view mirror.
    I almost picked up a G19 and a G27 yesterday. Ended up snapping out of it, and just bought a ghost 3.5# connector and 2000 rounds of ammo.

    Ask the instructor about IPSC matches. It's a fun and fast way to develop accuracy and speed after you get the basics down.

    Congrats (early) on the G32. Everytime you go to the range, someone is going to ask what you are shooting. Trust me.

    Once you get a taste of .357sig you may want to consider the G-33 for your second pistol. There's no question 9mm can handle most self-defense situations but the more powerful .357sig has a wider range of application.

    With a G-33 you can convert to 9mm or .40S&W (just like you can with your G-32) but with the G-26 it will always be 9mm. I own only two pistol calibers, 9mm and .357sig. While I have no qualms whateve about 9mm the .357sig is the one that can do it all.
