Hi everyone. I am very happy to find this forum and look forward to learning from and meeting other gun owners willing to share their experience.

Thanx for being available.

Welcome preacher

Hello and welcome to the site. I will not hold it against you for being interested in a glock.LOL I'm a 1911 or 2011 kind of guy myself.
Gunsatcost.com have some great prices for guns. Will have to ask my wife about gun ranges in your area. She is from So. CA. so she knows the area you are talking about. I would try the yellowpages for a gun range or gun shops around your area too. Hope this helps you out and again welcome to the site.

Thanks

Thanks fordvg!
I will always accept any suggestions on good firearms.
I also am impressed with the 1911 but I currently am recovering from radial nerve palsy and have to be very selective. The 1911 is a little big for me. As soon as I get more strength I would like to try it.

btw..Whenever I meet anyone who has served... I make it a point to say Thank you for your service and God Bless you and your family.

Thanks preacher

It has been a few years, I was 19 in my photo that I have up and that was 24 years ago. Hope you get to feeling better. Understand about nerve palsy I have nerve palsy to my left shoulder. Was injuryed in the Corp and still having to live with the problem.

I have a Glock 19 for carry. If I was you I would definately look at the Glock 17C, which means it has a ported/compensated bbl. It would be much less perceived recoil and bbl jump. Weight difference isn't that significant. But with your wrist, it would certainly be easier on you. Harder to conceal but better shooting.
The loaded Glock17 weighs 2 oz more than the 19. 19 oz vs 21 oz.
Wheras the 1911 loaded weighs in at about 48 ozs.

in fact most of the Glocks can be had Compensated. I also have a Winny 1300 Defender, but have never worked on it. Is the pistol grip legal in Calif?

when I went shopping for my glock i was never asked weather i wanted the c model..in fact i beleave my wife would have better control if i had the 17c instead..i asked for the glock17 and thats what they gave me...my fault for not being educated..lesson learned

I have reasons for the things I do, just don't expect them to be reasonable
