    Does anyone have good knowledge of Glock?
    I’m thinking of buying one but can’t decide on the model or cal.

    I’m looking for a good all around, competition, personal protection model.

    I don't particularly care for Glocks, but if you're looking for a personal protection pistol, I'd recommend the 9mm version (I think it's a Glock 17?).

    I don't care for the feel of the grip. I've never held one that felt comfortable.

    Glock 19's are a slightly smaller alternative to Glock 17's, both 9mm. I'm rather fond of the 19.

    The 19 happens to be the one I'm leaning toward.

    OK, gun owners, I'm curious, what does it take to own a handgun? What I mean by this question is, what is the process for owning a handgun?

    My guess is, send your fingerprints to local law enforcement (OK, not a problem, my fingerprints are already in Washington, DC, so another copy can't hurt), law enforcement checks for a criminal record, you have to take a gun safety course.... etc. What else is there? Plus what does a good handgun cost?

    I don't own a handgun or any gun, for that matter. However, my neighborhood is slowly becoming kind of, shall we say, Brooklyn-ized. More crack houses, shootings and so forth are in the news.

    I'm not seriously considering buying one right now, but if the day comes that I need one, I'd like to be prepared.

    It all depends on the state, Karl. There are Fed procedures/laws to purchase that apply to all states. Here it takes a backround check, short waiting period and thats it.

    Just a little advice from a former law enforcement officer..if you are looking for home protection go with a revolver...stay away from the autos...they are more expensive and require alot more maintenance...I would suggest a S&W model 66...it is a 357 mag and has alot of stopping power as well as being reliable...just go to the range regularly...one bullet one kill is the best policy!

    They can be purchased for around $350.00 on average!

    I should add this…that applies to purchase only. If you want to carry in public there are many more hoops to jump through.
