Just wanted to say hello and thanks. So far this site has been very informative and very friendly in researching on firearms that I am interested in getting. I finally narrowed it down on getting a Glock 17 in the next month or so and be an authentic Calguns forum member.

Welcome to Calguns. You definitely can't go wrong with a Glock 17.

I tired a bit a searching but I am coming up with no luck. So I am hoping you guys can shoot me into the right direction. I am wanting to take a handgun safety class to be educated about handguns and for peace of mind. So far I saw Reed's Indoor Range has a 2day class which is 140$ and includes the HSC test. Don't get me wrong the class sounds very informative but 140$ seems a lot and I could use some of that cash towards the glock I want to pick up. Are there any other places that have a handgun safety class, at a cheaper rate? Thanks in advance.

Welcome!

IMHO, a two-day class for $140 is a good deal, especially if it includes range time with the instructor's firearms (many do). You might find a one-day class for a bit less. Ask about this class on this board. If you get good feedback, consider going for it even if it stretches your budget. You may learn something that will influence your handgun choice (Not to steer you away from a Glock - I have G17 and a G30).

Another quick question, is there any holidays or special time of the year where there are good deals or sales? And as far as ammo goes... what brands should i look out for or stay away from? What are average prices and or whats a great deal? Thanks again, I am also searching for these answer in the forums and on the net. Thanks
