    Hi, from Minnesota! I was never a Glock guy. You know the same old, they are ugly, plastic, I don't believe the hype, Did I say there ugly? lol).

    Then a few years ago at the library, I picked up a book "Glock: The Rise of Americs's Gun". I was intrigued. I spotted used G22's online at a local retailer and went down to take a look. I drove down and ask to take a look at one. The sales man handed one to me. It was used, some wear and minor scratches. I "played" with it and asked "is this what I can expect as far as condition? He replies "let me go get one". I guess the one I was holding was the "display". He returned and say's "this is the gun tour taking home with you today". What was supposed to be "used" was a new Glock G22. He said it was from a supply they purchased from an arsenal and this one was never issued. Out the door for $386.00!

    I was hooked! Now that I have several Glocks,
    I think I'm turning into a Glock-oholic!

    Anyway thanks for the add.

    As far as Glocks I have a G22-4, G23-3, G38-3, G39-3, G17-5, G34-5 MOS (added yesterday :notworthy:) and a G44 for my daughter to shoot. The G38 & 39 I picked up cheap because they are .45 GAP, and the store wanted them gone. My buddy say's I'm obsessed. I argue that no matter what caliber I go to shoot, my "hand" already knows the gun!

    My favorite carry guns I have are my G22, and my G38.
