new to the forum..any philly area glockers here?

hi people...

im new here. not new to glocks but did just buy my first OWN glock considering i recently turned 21. got myself a glock M22 .40 s&w.

i was wondering if anybody here lives near hatfield PA or philly and know of good places to shoot...i go to a gun shop called target world that has an indoor range but would like to check out other places too...would also like to meet new people who are into guns as much as i.

found this gun at my local corner gunshop for $459 used...got him down to $409..this is the most up to date glock with the new extractor...it looked as if it only had a few rounds threw it cause even the top of the barrel still has blueing and its not scratched up bad. tell me what ya think

im happy with it...i wish they would have had a 21 but i have alot of experience with the 21 and im glad i went with this gun cause i can fallow up shots alot faster...and ammo is a tad cheaper...but it still has badass energy on impact which is all im lookin for.

Welcome! Great gun to start with. I'm not in Philly, but love the cheese steak sandwiches. I hope you get a chance to start your own Glock gun club!

Welcome,
i am from s.philly.
there are a few places to shoot.

in the city

The Fireing line,
the place is kind of beat up,but the guys there know thier stuff,
they will usually charge a range fee, plus you have to shoot thier ammo.But there are ways around that.

South phlia acrchery and gun
really nice place,nice selection ,clean range.
the staff is not the most knowledgeable.

Classic pistol
very nice range, you can shoot rifles also.
very knowledgeable staff.

French Creek state game land
its free,
25,50 and 10o yrd range, unfortunately i have seen alot of idiots there.


Delaware valley field and gun,
this place has everything,rifle\pistol\blackpower\rimfire\air rifle\trap.
you need to be with a member or have 2 memebers sponsor you for a membership.
my only complaint is some people thier are more worried about what you are doing than actually shooting.


hope this helps,
feel free to contact me.
-G

yeah i dont want to be a member of a range cause of the bull that fallows with it!

thanks for the suggestions...ill look them up! i dont like the idea of haveing to use there ammo...the whole idea of shooting a gun at a range is to improve your skills with the particular ammo of your choice...not some generic crap that they can make a buck off of.

I'm from Philly too. I shoot at Security Programs inc. in Northeast Philly. The place is nothing special, but they've got good guys who've been really helpful to me as I'm very new to guns. Even going as far as giving me an in depth clinic on how to clean my 23, and tips on grip. There's also Colosimo's in Center city. This is where most of the cops go. Both places require you to buy your ammo there.


BTW is that a beaver tail you put on your dad's gun? That's different, I've never seen that before.

Well, welcome to the forum.

I'm from NE Philadelphia. I haven't gone out in a while, but I go to Classic Pistol (www.classicpistol.com) and Wicen (outdoor range http://www.wicenshootingrange.com/). I recommend either one, even though Wicen is a bit of a hike. You can bring your own ammunition to either and neither require a membership.

Welcome!

BTW, I like the paper towel background.

Bounty and Glock: One is the quicker-picker-upper, the other has a striker & tenifer upper.



I need some sleep.

IMHO you should not go there unless you have a deathwish, but that's just me.

imo colismos is a thief, did you ever check some of his prices out, there outrageous! im from south philly and there are a couple of good ranges a couple blocks from my house, firing line is right around the corner from me and there good people, i really like there range because it feels just like a back alley. philly archery and gun is good too and they have a good selection of weapons to rent if you ever want to try something out.

I'm living in Center City Philadelphia but am a transplant from Chester County.

Avoid Colisimo's. There is nothing positive I can say about that place except that it's in a convenient location if you live in Center City ... and I'd say it's worth the extra mileage to get to The Firing Line or South Philly Archery & Gun.

Colosimo's has the worst pricing I've ever seen ($900 for a NIB Sig P226 last time I darkened their doorway -- 1995 or so) and their staff don't have a clue as to even simple things like where to find a decent hard-sided pistol case.

They get a lot of business from LE and that's what keeps them in business. I can't imagine any other way they would stay afloat.
