So ever since I shot my father's Gen 1 G17, about 19 years ago, I have been hooked on shoot. He unfortunately sold his to a pawn shop before I was of age to buy it from him, but I finally found one at my LGS. It's not pretty in anyway, but in 8 more days (CA) it will be mine. Once I get it home, I will strip it and post some more pics. I was able to get a really good deal on the gun, but I believe that is do to how many guns I have purchased with said LGS.
