And my heart skipped a beat and I think I broke out in a sweat. A letter from the Il state police. Just 31 days after they cashed my check my FOID card is in my sweaty little hands. I do believe i'll be visiting a gun shop this week.

I'm torn between the G22 and G21. I'll have to go and maybe shoot them both tomorrow before I make the purchase. But i'm leaning a wee bit towards the G22.

What can I say. I'm picking up my G22 on Friday :wavey:

Congrats.... I just spent 10 minutes on hold with Mega Sports to see if they had a gun in stock before I make the trip. Never got anyone so I'll just make the trip and see.

I need to mail in my wife's application for her FOID as well.

Did you get the regular or rough textured frame?

Did you get the regular or rough textured frame?

The regular. I like it better then the RTF2. Some like the new. Hold it, see how you like it and then chose between both. The slide serrations are good but I don't like the texture on the grip.

I picked up the RTF2 about a month ago. Love it. Like you said personal preference.

Welcome to the addiction. Until I qualify with my 22 I'm carrying a 23 on duty. Also ordered a 27 recently but was told it would be 8-12 weeks for it to come in. Worth it for the LE discount.

Now I'm looking to pick up a 19 with the OD Frame if I can find one.

Nice...how many you got so far? Glocks I mean :supergrin: The G22 is my first handgun and first personal weapon overall.

Let's see..... Glock's, 2 in hand and the 27 on order. If I pick up the 19 that would make 4. Maybe I'll complete the 9mm trifecta and grab the 17 and 26 down the road.

I had a 1st generation 19 which I sold...... a 21 and 30 which also got sold when I switched to .40 cal.

Also in the safe is a S&W 642, Ruger LCP, and a Rock River Entry Tactical AR-15.

Don't tell my wife :whistling:

I guess she don't have the key to the safe :rofl:. Some things are better not to be said...right? :supergrin:

She know's the combination.....

Where did you pick your 22 up from and what was the asking price?

I got it from Gat Guns in Dundee,IL $539 plus tax cash price. Not bad compared to Bass Pro, Gander...they wanted $629+ tax....Crazy people :shocked:

I'm just outside Joliet so Dundee is a little bit of a drive...... but maybe I'll make the trip up 355. They are an LE Glock dealer so they should have some blue labels for the discounted price.

If you join the Glock Shooting Sports Foundation (GSSF) for $35 a year you can get 1 certificate per year for a Glock at the LE price ($398 for most 9's and 40's).......

Okay time for the Hawks game. Signing off for now.

Yes they had LE discounted prices. When I told them I want a G22, first thing they asked me is I was a LE. For the GSSF, that's not a bad idea I must say. Considering the "Glock Addiction" I might buy another one by the end of the year.

Did you got you gun ? I just came back from GAT. I have a new friend now :supergrin:

Yes I did. I was there almost exactly at hour 72. And got some good range time in. And I even stopped at Cabela's on the way home. I'm still trying to figure out how I can slip another trip to the range in. It sounds like we both had a good day.

Definitely a great day. I got there around 7:30, so I didn't have any time to try it out on the range. I'm very happy with my choice. I'm just like a kid with a new toy. It's my first gun and my first Glock.

Congrats guys.... I picked up my OD G19 yesterday. Hopefully I will throw some pictures up on here today.

Now the wait continues for my G27..... I was told it would be 8-12 weeks about 4 weeks ago.

I had to pull myself away from the gun cabinets yesterday. I was already thinking of my next purchase.

I know... I asked the guy to show me a S&W M&P compact .40 because I was considering the next purchase...... I didn't care for it. Next up will be a G17.

Got my G22 from GAT during their gun show.....499!!! Plus free night sites!!

Tikiwolf

So now when GAT is out of .40 ammo I think I know who to blame.

Don't blame me. The last time there, they were charging the same price for "range" ammo as "defense" ammo....I bought ONE box.

Don't ever buy range ammo at GAT. Their prices are HORRIBLE! Even higher than Gander Mountain in most cases.

Keep an eye out at Walmarts for ammo!!! Was just there this morning after work and they had over 2 cases of Blazer Brass 9mm on the shelf.I didn't need any 9's so I left it.This was at the Shorewood(RT59 and Theodore) Walmart

What is a FOID? We can buy a gun whenever we want one. Looks like a lot of the country needs to elect some reps who would give them the rights we all deserve.

The range is the only place that has the ammo, I haven't had any luck with Walmart. Although my 3 day wait ends Tuesday and i'll be in the market for .22 besides the .40.
