Only on the job 5 years. We are allowed to choose between a Glock 22 or 23. I initially chose a 22. About a year ago, I formally requested to carry a 22C. Because all the inner workings were the same, and because I stated I would buy it personally, the request was granted.
I think the difference is very noticeable. The .40 cal "flip" is really reduced, and I think follow up shots are faster and more accurate.
The drawback I find is when shooting from retention. The muzzle blast is much more noticeable. I have learned to really cant the weapon away from my side in an attempt to alleviate this. It helps, but feels somewhat unnatural.
