    Hi from WA, Seattle area. Got a new glock 17 gen3 and excited. Also excited to join glock talk community- just had a question on sd ammo choice cleared up! I:wavey:'m completely new to firearms. I'm educating myself thoroughly in this space, watching lots of Youtube videos on gun cleaning and maintenance, how they work, safety etc. I'm a DIY type of person and now I have yet one more thing to keep me busy!

    Can't wait to start shooting classes. They're completely booked like 3 weeks ahead. Man, nowadays I sleep a little better!

    Thanks!

    You certainly started with a fine gun. Great choice.

    Welcome. I think the G17 is an excellent choice for your first firearm.
