    Well after watching countless videos about the greatness of Glocks, and hearing rave reviews from Hickok45 on youtube I decided to see what the fuss was about. A coworker sold me his 3rd Gen Glock 22 with Meprolight Trudot Night Sights, 6 15rnd Mags, and a 100rnd box of Winchester White Box target ammo for a measly $300.

    Couldn't pass it up. Not the prettiest gun but it goes bang every time and before I got a hold of it it only had about 50 rounds through it. I'm pretty pleased with it overall. I can see why it's used by law enforcement the world over.

    I'll try and post a pic later when I get some free time. Just thought I'd share.

    I really enjoyed it last weekend. Put that 100rnd box through it without issue. It's a nice pistol. Well balanced, and I like the way it fits my hands with the finger grooves in the grip frame. I couldn't argue with $300, I practically stole it.

    Great deal! You are even luckier it is a 3rd gen. I personally can't stand the 4th gens.

    They changed the grips on the 4th gens didn't they? I think the other cha nge was something with the spring if I remember correctly.

    Great pistol and they just work. You got a great deal!

    If you ever go to an NRA convention or anywhere Glock has a booth set up they'll refinish it for you. I took a Gen3 G17 police trade to them. Looked like it was dragged behind a truck for years. $50 later it looked brand new. Did the same for a Gen2 G19 that was a former range rental. $100 and it came back to me refinished and replaced internals. Glock is awesome for customer service.

    Glock was a little to big for my hand so I went with the Smith and Wesson 9mm

    I know , I already posted this pic but just in case you missed it.

    Ooh. Rock out with your Glock out. Great guns. However, since there is no pic, you did not make this purchase.
