Hey guys,

Just wanted to share my recent purchases.

My first gun was a Smith and Wesson M&P .45. purchased it about 2 months ago. I picked up a couple extra mags for it as well, std SW mags.

Shortly after the month requirement expired I purchased a Glock 17. My cousin was home from Iraq and convinced me to get a glock 9mm. Have to say I love it. havent picked up any extra items yet, however I really dislike the ten round MAGS. Getting the last couple bullets in the mag really sucks.

A couple days ago I bought my first rifle. S&W MP15 ORC. Already picked up the Troy folding ironsights for it. Plan on getting an Eotech or Aimpoint optic soon.

I've always been around guns, dad had me shooting very young. But up until this year never really had an interest in owning one. Early this year I had an operation that left me out of work for almost 5 months. It wiped away my savings and put me into a rough spot.

Once I recovered I decided it was time to finally buy some of the things I had always wanted. Im back on the road of saving money again but I wanted some new toys before I got back to total reality.

Anyways, proud gun owner here! Great site as well!!

Welcome to the site! Nice choice of firearms, btw. Glad you enjoy them.

Don't sweat the Glock mags, they'll loosen up with use.

Shoot straight! :thumbsup:

Welcome! I have three .45 Glocks and am getting a Glock 19 soon, love them!

And I might as well be the first one to correct you, but they are magazines, not clips. Rappers, gangsters and the media have poisoned the minds!


Magazine: An ammunition storage and feeding device within or attached to a repeating firearm.

Clip: A device that is used to store multiple rounds of ammunition together as a unit, ready for insertion into the magazine or cylinder of a firearm.

This is the main reason I bought the glock 17. Well this and the fact that the glock 17 has soo many options. Huge clips, full auto :facepalm: all that jazz. I know I an't use that stuff now but if I ever move out of CA maybe then I could.

Great start!! My M&P45fs was my first gun purchase as well. I've got a Streamlight TLR1, Apex Duty Kit, and am looking at TruGlo TFOs. Great gun. Most of all, welcome!!

3 words for you.
Uplula
Magazine
Loader
This little device makes life a little easier. When I go to the range, I load my magazines the night before to cut down on wasted range time. I have enough 1911 mags to load 500 rounds and still have some mags left over. Uplula REALLY makes it easier and less painful. It's a small investment that quickly pays itself off. Look into one.
And welcome to the forum.

thanks Ryan, I actually picked up a Uplula with my first purchase. Niffty little deivce. the glock even came with a quick loader.

My comment was more aimed at the glock 17 ten round mags that are CA compliant. I've loaded the 19 round standard clips and they seem to be a lot eaiser to load the last few rounds by hand. I will make do, just a little something that I didn't like.
