    In your opinion what are the first three things that should be everyones short list to buy after purchasing their first glock. Or even more specifically in my case an OD green G32.

    Assuming it's for concealed carry:

    A GOOD holster of whatever style you prefer, but not a cheap one. One that's molded to fit YOUR gun and covers the trigger completely and has good retention. (NOT one of those soft nylon one-size-fits-all POS's that has a mag pouch made onto the holster)

    Second, a spare mag pouch.

    Good night sights if they didn't come on the gun. Preferably TruGlu TFO's or XS Big Dot's, but it's really your preference.

    If you want more, I'd say extra mags, plenty of practice ammo, some good SD ammo, cleaning supplies, targets, possibly a channel plug (if you like them), a range bag, and as much stuff as you can get.

    It's really a personal decision on all this stuff...this is just what I consider most important. But you can't really limit it to just three. There are several things you're going to need right away.

    1) A good gun belt (e.g. The belt man www.thebeltman.net sharkskin 1.5 "):

    2) A good holster (e.g. Tucker "The Answer", Milt Sparks VMII, Mitch Rosen, many others -- I cannot list them all. It depends on where you want to carry it, in the pocket, IWB, OWB, etc.)

    Milt Sparks VMII in Black Horsehide, 1.5" belt loops

    Mitch Rosen Tito's Revenge cross-draw holster in Best Cowhide, 1.5" belt loops

    3) Glock's are great stock so all other upgrades are just icing on the cake. I would pick night sights if they are not already installed and would also either go wth the Tru Glo TFO's or the XS Big Dot's, personally, I have the Tru Glos and love them!

    Good luck and be safe!

    without knowing what you're going to do with it it's hard to make an informed answer. i'd say sights, holster, and mags.

    A decent gun belt and holster are usually the weak links in the chain.

    This said, a 3.5# connector, night sights, and a nice 25 cent polish job would be the first things I'd go for. :thumbsup:

    Regarding a gunbelt...

    Don't think you have to go to a gunshop or police supply house and buy an expensive, police-style belt made especially for guns that's 2 inches wide and half an inch thick.

    You can get a good belt almost anywhere. You do need a fairly heavy one, though, and wider than your average thin dress belt. Mine are fairly thick, wider than a dress belt, and stiffer than a lot of belts.

    It makes it a bit easier if you use a paddle holster, since your pants are also holding it up and not just the belt, but I also use a belt slide holster with my heavy Wal-Mart belts with no problem.

    Bottom line: Not necessarily a special "gunbelt", although there's nothing wrong with that, just a heavier, thicker, wider, and especially stiffer one than you would normally wear. You'll know after wearing your gun for a day or so, maybe sooner, if it's going to work.
