My first handgun was a Glock 17 Gen 4, and I have no regrets whatsoever. A lot of people don't like Glocks for reasons (real and imagined) too numerous to mention here, but these are the FACTS about...

+1 on PSA. If budget is a concern, but you still want quality, PSA has some of the least expensive MILSPEC-compliant AR parts available. BCM and DD are undoubtedly top notch, but those builds will...

PSA has good quality and good prices, but their service is very slow, and their "quality control" in getting orders shipped correctly the first time is poor. A barreled upper took me a month to...
