My first post, my first Glock, my first pistol. I grew up hunting, and had some experience w/ handguns in my youth. I shot in the USAF w/ the M9, but not much in the last 19 years. My brother has the 17 and a buddy of mine got a 1911, so I got the jones a little. The 17 seems to fit my (large) hands really well, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I'll be shooting my new rig for the first time tomorrow. I also got the AA 17-22 conversion, as my 12 yo will definitely want to shoot, and my wife has expressed an interest in learing, too. I thought the .22 would be a good introduction to handguns without the recoil associated with a larger caliber pistol. It will also be fun for just burning some ammo at the range without burning a hole completely through my pocket.
