Howdy!! from Texas

Just got a G23 Sunday evening haven't had a chance to shoot it. This is my first Glock and pistol in a long time. Had a Ruger 9mm several years ago. While the Ruger is a good gun I like my Glock like the trigger feels better and a much simpler gun that feels great in my hand.

Glock has its detractors & even some trash talk is bandied about....but they work! Now that's pure beauty to me.
Congrats on your new pistol & welcome to GT.

Welcome aboard! My first Glock was the 23. It is arguably the ideal semi-auto pistol. Decent capacity, easily concealed, fun too shoot and can take care o' bidness if/when necessary. I predict you're gonna love it..........

Oh lordy!!

What a sweet shooting gun. Changed the sights to Tru Glow had a trigger job done. One sweet fine little unit. Ran about 200 rounds thru her right after the trigger job. tightened my groupings up a lot.
