    Hello from Georgia

    Hi, I am a new member from Georgia. I have a Glock 23 and I love it. I would appreciate some advice. I am looking for an advanced handgun book to read. I am more advanced than most I have seen. Does anyone have any ideas or good ones that you have read? Please let me know, I would appreciate it. Looking forward to being a part of the community. Thanks!

    welcome from massachusetts, don't know if you have the same advantage with glock that i have with smith and wesson who have a store here open to the public, but on occassion i have dealt with glock on the phone and they were very helpful and sent me a lot of reading material. i am sure you know they are located in smyrna. imo books are good for the technical stuff but gun clubs, other shooters and experience are the best teachers.

    Welcome to the site!

    Despite being a voracious reader, I tend to agree with 1jimmy, above, at least on the subject of advanced shooting. A good instructor or coach can teach things in an hour or two that a person might NEVER learn if they were to try to get and apply the knowledge from a book.

    That whole "picture=1000 words" thing has contributed to folks making a lot of videos on this subject, some of which end up on YouTube. Some are good, some are great (especially the ones from certain high-level competitive shooters), and some are really, REALLY bad. You also might try buying some of the shooting DVD sets available from the top-level shooting schools and competitive shooters; lots of good info in those, too, if you can give new techniques an unbiased-from-past-experience look.

    Thank you for all the welcomes. 1Jimmy and DJ Niner, thank you for the advice. I am looking for videos and have found a few good ones, thank you again, it was a good idea that I hadn't thought about. Here is a picture of my Glock.
