I knew it was time to purchase my first handgun but I couldn't decide what brand or model I wanted. Everyone I talked to let me know what they own but said I needed to go to the stores and put the guns in my hand and see what fits best. Well I did. The Glock 17 fit so perfectly in my hand, it was just meant to be. The store ordered my new G17 with night sights from Glock so I had to wait a few days to get it in. I couldn't wait. So my Glock 17 is my first handgun that I own and I think this is addicting cause I was looking at adding a G26 as well. But first thing first. Is there anything that I need to know about Glock handguns, especially the 17? I have read the manual about 3 times now. I field-stripped my gun and put it back together again. No issues. As always pictures prove it so here you go. Thanks in advanced for your input.
