Hello rom the bluegrass state
Hello everyone. Just bought my first Glock 3 weeks ago, g17 gen 3. I live in close to the river across from cincy. I'm used to revolvers so I had a couple of jamming problems my first 2 times out. I chalked it up to my lousey shooting technique and the third time I concentrated on my grip and had no problems. I hope that was the problem because I really love the gun. I've tried other semi- autos with the hammer and safetys and I love that the Glock doesn't have all that. I still love revolvers but if I'm going to shoot semi-autos, this is the gun for me. I bought the gen 3 because the person at the gun shop is ex-detective and he profers gen 3. So look forward to enjoying this forum and can't wait to shoot again.

Not a bad place to be... I head north quite a bit to check out the Reds (most of my dad's family is from Cincinnati)

Nice, the 17 is a great gun. Hopefully they were easy jams to clear.

Maybe a good cleaning will help.

That's cool... Been to Georgetown a few times myself

Had to use some effort to remove the mag to clear the jams. Last time out had no problems. Also been reading that low grain bullets cause some problems in Glocks which was what I was using. Hopefully it was my shooting technique. Going out again soon to test it some more. Thanks again for all the welcomes.

went shooting today with G17 and no problems. YAY! Feel much better now.
