    Hey guys, new guy to the forum and just bought my first Glock!

    I went and shot 50 rounds through it after I bought it, and had fun (I obviously need some practice, but at least most of the rounds hit the target) I went ahead and got an extra mag (giving me a total of 3), and some .40cal snap caps for practicing my trigger pulls. This thing is sweet!

    I'm hoping in the future to do a 3.5lb trigger, and tritium sights. Thanks for the sweet forum! :supergrin:

    The gun:

    An artsy shot because I couldn't help myself:

    The dead target (I'm sad they didn't have Zombie Bob). *This was at about 7 yards I think:

    Thanks guys! Here are the holsters I got for use at the outdoor range here. They're nothing special, just a couple of Fobus's:

    Great choice, I've been carrying my 2nd generation Glock 23 since 1997. Thousands of bullets launched down range and still going strong!
    Also, thanks for taking the time to post some photos.

    Welcome aboard Mastacox and congratulations on your new Glock set-up. Looks like you got it goin' on! The only thing that can beat that new Glock feeling is that FIRST new Glock feeling. I'm way jealous. BTW my first glock was the nib G-23 I bought back in '04. It is a shooter I'm here to tell ya!

    Happy Glockin'.

    G23 was a very happy addition to our family - served as my ccw for many years and never failed to go bang when the trigger was squeezed. May she serve you well my friend and welcome.
