Hello everybody. Just want to introduce myself to what I expect to be a helpful and supportive community. So I've purchased my first gun and am now a proud Glock 17 owner. I'm really looking forward to picking it up on tuesday from the gun shop here in Los Angeles. I feel like I got screwed for some money with these California handgun prices/fees but after doing some "post" research on my Glock, and reading on how reliable and durable these guns really are, I really don't feel too bad about getting taxed for being a California handgun owner. I'm glad I found a place where people share the same interest as me. Thanks in advance!
