Howdy friends
Just checking in here to get some straight-skinny from the experts.. that would be you folks!

I am just a shootin' fool who loves poking holes in paper, cans as well as busting clay pigeons. I'm Retired NAVY but all the guns I saw while in the service were measured in inches or those old anti-aircraft 40MM. Now that I am out and in the country side (Missouri) I am making up for lost time.

Do we speak reloads here too?? I need to make rounds as my habit is awfully expensive.

Also I am looking at a Glock 17 which is advertised as a 1st Generation gun.. It's cute like a "water moccasin" and fairly expensive $550. He says it's a collectors piece.

Where can I check out the info of a Glock via the serial # ?? You know date of Mfg and number built that year & so forth.

Also Looking for a site to get owners manuals and repair guides or disassembly manuals etc.
Hope to hear from you Guys..(or Gals)
Regards

Hello fawlty1, welcome to gunslot. Owners manuals, call or write any manufacture for one and more than likely they will send one for nothin. As for the glocks go to a glock web site on collectors series and or blue book of gun values also, should have what your looking for. good luck and again welcome.

Im also looking to buy a glock. this website helped me out

http://remtek.com/arms/glock/index.htm

also if u want a manual for it and u have Adobe Reader go here and select glock and u will have it.

http://stevespages.com/page7b.htm

If this doesnt help just google "glock PDF owners manual" and u should find one to ur liking.

U can have my gun when I'm dead and cold!!

Hey folks thanks for the welcome... and two Michigan boys as well... my original home state.!! Born in Flint raised in Cadillac (near there in the woods) and then shuffled off to Grand Rapids.
Went off to Sail around the Carribean after that and after 20 years of doing that came back to Missouri.. Long story.. we'll need Beers.
Thanks again for the advise.
