Welcome and congratulations on your first Glock. My first Glock was a 23 and it is still my EDC.

They say the same thing on the Polaris RZR forum I belong to. Those toys can empty your wallet in short order! LOL.

Welcome. The weather is nasty, and I'm home with the crud that's been making the rounds.

Did you pick up a Gen 3 or Gen 4 gun?

Curious as to where you shoot? Tillamook, or other State Forests/Lands? Or at an actual shooting club/range?

I used to belong to an indoor range. But WAY too loud, and the often unsafe shooter soured the experience. I can usually find an out of the way wilderness area to practice my three/four times a year.

Cheers.

One nice thing about a lot of the coast, where there is logging, there are logging roads, where there are logging roads there are gravel pits
