    You are doing fine in English. I know only Chio-chao? in Portuguese, but look at women's backsides just the same as in Brazil.

    I shot a G23 for 2.5 years in IDPA and USPSA until I bought a G34. G34 is faster for me even though I like the G23 for best feel in hand.

    When are you coming to the USA? And where are you shooting?

    What gun is best depends on what sport and what division you will shoot in.

    Ciao maybe on spelling? Hello-How are you? Hello baby? Ciao? Is that correct?

    When are you coming to the USA? Phoenix, Arizona and possibly one of the large Texas cities have many action/practical pistol matches per month. I can shoot 8 or 9 matches a month within 100 miles (160KM) of my house.

    And yes, I know how to begin.

    A start will be to look at the "competition" section here on GT.

    E-mail a hello to me and I will send shooters links from the USA.

    Links to IDPA, USPSA, Brian Enos forum, GSSF, and several parts suppliers have been sent by e-mail.

    Reread previous posts for comp. divisions that I shoot.

    Being an international shooter is no problem for membership in the 2 major shooting disciplines. Getting a pistol to shoot will be the large problem unless you have a friend here to get you a pistol.

    Join USPSA and IDPA in the USA from Brazil or after you arrive in the USA. This is dependent on what you plan to shoot. You may know better after you look at the links I sent. The links explain each club schedule and location. There are several clubs close to Orlando and more clubs within easy in driving distance from Orlando for weekend club matches.

    I suggest you make arrangements to get a pistol after you arrive in the USA; unless you have someone to send your pistol to here prior to your arrival. I am not really qualified to help you get a pistol into the USA or to help get a pistol for you to shoot in Florida.

    I shoot a G23 and have no desire to switch to any other Glock.
