I've been reading this forum for the last few weeks and just became a member here.
A little over a week ago I purchased my first handgun and it's a Glock 23C. I absolutely love shooting it. I plan to attend the state safety class in the next couple weeks and apply for my Conceal Carry License.
Thanks for all the good reading so far!
Thanks guys! Just signed up for the class a couple hours ago. I can't wait.
I do have question however.
I have read that the compensated glock is not recommended for carry. Can I swap the barrel with a non compensated one for carry?
Any compensated pistol has a big flash at the end of the barrel. In a low light deal it will cause you temporay blindness. If you have to discharge your gun in a awkward position close to your body it will burn you. Thats the minus side of them. Good luck.
Great choice for a firearm, you will love your glock for all time.Good luck on your CCW course ( I have had mine for 2 years).

Thanks for the info everyone. When I signed up for the CCW course yesterday I noticed a sign on the counter that had the discount for the NRA. This is at my local range and they offer the same discount along with 30 minutes of free range time. I was running late for a meeting so I planned on getting that taken care of this weekend after class. I love this country!
Thanks everyone! I made it through the class just fine. The shooting part was a breeze. I dropped two into the 9 ring just being excited to shoot. Everything else was either 10's or X's. The 23C almost shoots itself.
I went to a gun and knife show after day one and picked up a Walther P22 for plinking around. Two days after that I picked up a 10/22 for fun as well and ordered lots of parts to customize it. This has turned into an addiction already.
As far as the other things mentioned. I got rid of the wife almost a year ago... (for everyone else that hasn't went this route. It truly is cheaper to keep her)
The upcoming election. I've been voting in them every time since I turned 18. Unfortunately I think the poons out number us. Hopefully it will rain that day or the public transportation breaks down...
