    Hey guys, I guess I'm one of the new guys. My wife and I just bought our first home defense handgun, a Gen 4 Glock 17.

    We did a lot of research and it seemed like the right fit for home defense and handling for both of us. I'm really excited about spending some shooting time with her getting used to it. I've shot a lot of different guns and love to go out duck hunting with my 12ga Browning. This is the first handgun I've owned though and I realize that the more info I have the better.

    I hope to find a wealth of knowledge here and maybe even throw out a couple of ideas I have. We bought a Barska Biometric safe and I got that set up today. Next up is finding some cheap ammo for target shooting and I'm thinking about the Hornady Critical Defense for at home.

    Im sure I can find the answers I need but any info on cleaning, oiling or what to do before the first shoot would be appreciated. If you've read this far thanks a lot, Good communities are hard to come by.

    Welcome. I also bought a gen 4 Glock 17 recently. I actually bought it from a fellow forum member. You will love it!

    It's hard to go wrong with a Glock. As long as you like ugly.

    Do you get extra points for having a pretty gun?

    Welcome to the forum. The G17 is a fine gun. Make sure you do get time to get yourselves out to shot regularly, and, if funds and time allow, try to get signed up for a defensive handgun course - it will be very helpful.

    Nope. Just for asking.


    Ok, I lied. You get extra points for pretty from some. But others seem to think it needs to be ugly to be good. I prefer both, myself.
