    Hello the forum. :wavey:

    I'm just Tommy , a guy in Arkansas who stumbled across the forums while looking for info. on a Glock.
    I recently horse traded for a Glock 22 (40 S&W), 4 magazines, about 400 rounds ammo. and hard case.

    I've never owned a Glock nor anything in .40 S&W before... but this deal was too good to pass up. I've not convinced myself that I want to keep this pistol........ yet, anyways.

    Otherwise, I shoot when I can, have shot some NRA HP rifle matches in the past, piddle with a couple old muzzle loaders, an RWS54 in .177, etc., fish (badly) on the lakes around Hot Springs, and ride my '96 Kaw. 800 and wrench on it when I have to, and read quite a bit.

    I'll likely be reading here a lot more than posting, particularly for some while now.... lots to learn I am thinking.
    Any other questions, no prob.
    Tommy

    SE Ark. has some nice areas too, although I'm pretty much a hillbilly at heart.
    Spelling names and places, eh?... I lived in Louisiana for 14 years. Now, THEY have some real doozies.
    Thanks for the welcome.

    :welcome: from another G22 owner. I'm real pleased with mine. There are also barrel inserts if you decide you want to shoot something other than .40, though I don't have any experience with them myself. Bulk ammo on the internet is the way to buy if you like to shoot. There's also a strong bunch of reloaders on the forum as well. :)

    Thanks for the welcome. I own a Colt 1991... loved it ever since I bought it (in 1992).

    I lived in Fayetteville for 9 mostly good years. It sure is different nowadays than it was in the 80's! Then, I went to NW Louisiana... 'nuff said! <grin>
