Thought that I would get around to doing my intro post.  Won't be very exciting.

 

I'm a 44 year old network engineer in the DC area. A little under a year ago a buddy of mine took me to my first USPSA match and I found out how much fun it is to run around like a retard punching holes in paper and banging steel. I have been addicted since that point and wishing that I had picked it up years ago when I was a lot more athletic.

 

I shoot limited with the "Glock Perfection" (gonna catch lots of crap on that one).  Mainly because I had borrowed gun and rig from my brother for the first few months and I know how to work on them. I do keep eyeing the 2011s on the BEnos classifieds lustfully though. I have no clue about getting them to run consistently so I am hesitant. 

 

Got initially classified in the wonderful D class but have been making progress and should hopefully make A soon. Still working out the balance of accuracy vs speed and obviously just becoming a better shooter.

 

Took my gf to a match once so she could see how I spend my weekends and she thinks I'm fucking nuts for shooting for 15-30 seconds and spending 45 minutes resetting the course for 10 other people.

Well,,,your statement of not being exciting was quite accurate, but it wasn’t as pathetic as some other intro’s lately.

Don’t spend $ on a 2011, use the cash for moving to a better location.

Hehehe. Not a Glock armorer. I  have enough knowledge learned from Glock armorers to fix them in a pinch and run all safety checks.

2011 LIMITED guns shoot just fine without much tinkering other than finding what you like for initial setup.  Now if go to the dumb side of 2011ery and shoot OPEN you will find yourself in a rabbit hole so deep that alcoholics are looking down on you.  It's been well established that Glocks are dumb so if you really are a smarty pants IT nerd in DC it behooves you to make the SMART move to the 2011 even if it's only to piss off your girlfriend when she finds out you spent ring money on a gun.

I have shot a few 2011s but not enough to really get the feel for one. I'm thinking that a used Edge would be the way to go but I'm wary about doing a remote deal where I can't actually check the gun out for condition and to see if I like the balance, etc. Although, I did fall in lover with a tungsten sleeved Limcat not that long ago. 

 

The gf makes more $ than me. I told her I want a diamond studded cock ring if we get married.

Lots of dudes selling pre-loved guns that they experimented on, wore out, and are looking to dump on some clueless noob so they can buy a new gun from one of our many highly regarded 2011 gunsmiths. Have you considered a Night Shrike?

I am informed and modestly entertained.

I used to live near DC.

I award the smallest bag of dicks that I could find, as it matches the number of fucks I give about the entire DC-MD-NoVa area.

I would argue with GM-BatShit on this point. Most of the guys selling their "stock" 2011's are just trying to get back a little cash to help with the cost of their "new and improved ultra-high speed murder-chromed out Amazo-blaster" that's guaranteed to make them a paper GM instantly. 99% of the pistols on decent forums are solid guns. I'm somewhat ashamed to admit that I'm about 10 2011's in, and I've never bought a new one. Bought one with a small crack in the slide (advertised as such) for $800. Worst case is I have to have a new slide fitted for $500-600, that still puts me into it for only $1400.

Don't be scared of used guns. Do make sure that you have someone to work on it if needed. Usually, even if you have to spend some $$$ on it, you can still come out on top versus buying new.

FYI - This is supposed to be a link to youtube clip of a snickers commercial to better explain my screen name. Apparently, my attitude can get abrasive when I'm hungry and you're stupid.
