Hello from Sunny Phoenix, AZ
I am new to this Forum but not to the Glock family of firearms. My first Glock was a G19 Gen 2 LEO Turn-In, replaced a faithful friend (Ruger P89) for a more compact every day carry firearm. Best part, turned around and sold the Ruger 30 minutes later. Wound up with $40.00 out of pocket when all was said and done.

Wife liked the G19 so much I gave it to her. I upgraded to my current every day carry G23 Gen 3 LEO Turn-In.

Replaced my daughter's .38 special snubnose with a NIB G26 Gen 3 recently so I guess you can say a family of Glocks.

I hit the range as often as I can to keep my skills up.

Take it easy everyone.

Thank you bac. As I stated in a message to Eric. I had been trying to register since I moved to Phoenix and purchased my G19 Gen 2. Kept getting a screen message "Your IP Address has been banned" however, I had never tried to register nor held an account before my move. Learned the guy from the cable company had set up my service to permit he and his friends to hack into my account and my computers. I have to wonder if this is why the IP Address was banned. :crying:
Either way, I am honored to be a member of this forum and look forward to gaining information, learning from fellow members as well, maybe I can share some of my knowledge here.

Will be back in Phoenix tomorrow evening, hoping that I will still be able to log into my account. Open message to the Administration and or Moderators. How do I make contact with you once back in phoenix if there is still an issue with my home IP Address?

Respectfully submitted,

Pipedreams; Havasu; SGT HATRED, Thank you. My Bride and I are currently located in the Western part of Phoenix. A comical short story for you all. When looking for a house to rent, we would look at the surrounding area using google maps to see what was nearby. When we visited friends in Mesa we would look at neighborhoods also.

When we saw the house we are in, we zoomed out, saw the mountains and what appeared to be agricultural farming. Boy were we mistaken. Driving down W Broadway towards the house we saw not crops but Dairy Cows. Yep, the ladies provide nature's perfume for us. lol
We make the best of it though. Drive past and tell them good afternoon or good evening, made it into a game.

We hope to move closer in this coming Summer; Mesa or Tempe area.
All that being said, I do admit, Phoenix has grown on me and I am glad we made the move to Phoenix for our "New Beginning" to get our marriage back on track. Leave the negative inNorthern Virginia we promised each other and work hard on our marriage from now on.

Thank you ca survivor, glad to be here.

Okay, am back in Phoenix now. I am a bit apprehensive about logging out then trying to log back in per the ip address issue I mentioned. If I have problems logging in, who do I contact, how do I make the contact with them? DO I use the Contact Us feature on the log in page?

Welcome! We used to live in Gilbert! Loved it!

Challenge to you. Go take wife to Joe's BBQ and then walk around that area.. On Gilbert Road. Great place to live. Great neighbors and schools! Safer than Other places in the valley! Good luck!

Welcome to the cowboy state! Check out Ben Avery, if you haven't already. Excellent outdoor range. Shooters world is probably closer to you on the west side at cactus/60
