Hi,

Thank you for all the information on the forum ... it's a good read.

I'm a teacher in Johannesburg and found your forum while doing research on what handgun to buy after I found my neighbour bleeding in the street; he was pistol-whipped in a home invasion.

I have owned a G17 Gen 4 since September last year, have run about 4000 rounds through it (without any cases hitting me in the face ) and I am doing my IDPA new shooter orientation and shooting my first classifier tomorrow morning.

Looking forward to being a "real" member of Glock Talk.

Tinus

Thanks BD43. I have been training people for most of my career, but I have been teaching full time at Monash University for only about a year now.

It's supposed to be summer, but we have not seen the sun in two days ... lots of rain. I measured four inches of rain in the past two days. Temp at around 77 - 80 degrees.

No shooting ... it's too wet.
