OK,
as some of you know, I am not a huge Glock fan, however, I am a big handgun fan. Well I finally bit the bullet on a deal that I couldn't refuse. I am getting a Glock 17 from a ppt. I'll post pics as soon as they are available. I am pretty excited. Anything that I should expect from it (i.e nuances and such that someone who hasn't shot glocks all that much before)? I typically shoot SA revolvers, and my beloved M&P.

The trigger will be a lot different then on your revolvers, on the two glocks i've shot (and loved) it's more of a snap then the long pull of a SA.

Congrats i am trying to work up to a G21 but cant make up my mind.........

I too have gone to the Glockside. Will be taking home two full size Glocks at the end of the month and a third one sometime in the near future.

You'll like the Glock. I'm more facinated with revolvers, but have Glocks for when I need more firepower.

What to expect? More Glocks and you'll be a 1911 hater.

Congrats ... what kind of deal came by that you finally broke down and went to the "Glockside"

Welcome to the family.

The trigger hurts my finger

my G22 does the same thing...sort of a pinch after a few hundred rounds in 1 session. Its a workhorse, so its not going anywhere.

Nuance is not something most people associate with Glocks. They are simple, reliable, and have a not so great trigger with an outstanding trigger reset. Enjoy.

Cute . . . However embellished that statement is and far from the initiated truth . . . And I am a owner of 6 Glocks, which I love. One of which is a gen1 G17.

OP, congrats to you on your first Glock. I trust you will find your Glock to be very reliable. The trigger feel is not the best when compared to others. However, mine afford good accuracy and they have all functioned flawlessly for many 1000s of rounds.

Congrats man. GLocks are one of the best firearms out there.

400 out the door. From what I understand this one has had a bit of work done to it so maybe the trigger will be nicer. Only time will tell. Damn 10 day wait.

Thats not gonna happen. Blasphemy!

1 In the beginning was the 1911, and the 1911 was THE pistol, and it was good. And behold the Lord said, "Thou shalt not muck with my disciple John's design for it is good and it workith. For John made the 1911, and lo all of his weapons, from the designs which I, the Lord, gave him upon the mountain."

I resemble that!

I started with my first Glock 17 in 1987...(the one on the end)

I have 13 so far....not counting the several I gave to my adult children; now my grandson is eyeing them.....He has a favorite (the 1992 Glock 17 with the extended Barstow barrel)....he says it's "Cool Grandpa".

You can never have too many Glocks. Really.

if you're right handed and shoot revolvers with your left thunb crossed over the back and around the other side...don't do that with the Glock, also might want to use the thumb indent for the right hand when gripping it.

I was not a big Glock fan until I ran across a deal I couldn't pass up. They are great simple guns. No frills all function!

Nice Glock. I only have a 17L I bought last year because a rep talked me into it. I used a 17 Gen 4 at a school and put about 1500 rounds through it. My only complaint is the trigger. After so many rounds it really starts to feel uncomfortable to me. I think I have about 100 rounds through the 17L with the 3.5 trigger. Not enough rounds. I prefer the 1911 to it! Glocks are good guns though, enjoy it.

I didn't think my Glock 21 was all that. I was just adding to my collection. Then I took a PC832 class. First week of range training I shot with my Beretta 92FS. I did okay. So I decided to take out my Glock 21 the following week. I did so well with it that I was the only student instructed to aim for the head by our instructor. Never looked back since.

Simple. Cheap. Goes bang every time I pulled the trigger. You're going to enjoy yours. Congratz.

Glocks are really good firearms. I myself am a fan. I have other personal favorite brands, but I cant say anything bad about them. Thing I dont understand is when people buy Glocks then complain about the engineering. Glocks are most reliable when left alone, as they should be. Congrats on your purchase.:D
