New G23 Gen4 range report / review

Well hot damn I am one happy camper!! Just took my new Glock 23 Gen4 to the range yesterday and it was amazing! If I had more money in my bank account I would've drained it on ammo, that's how much I loved shooting it. Put a 100 rounds of PMC bronze down range and it mowed down the targets flawlessly. I was so amazed at the difference in recoil from previous gen glocks and an incredible difference from my s&w .40 cal. The accuracy was simply amazing as well. I just found the gun I will be carrying on me every day of my life, and I tell you all of a sudden I feel a whole lot safer!!

I was surprised right off the bat at how close I was able to group together shots, quite a few times double tapping bullseyes and constantly kept every follow up shot right next to the last one. <--And I am by no means an expert shooter, so me being able to group together bullseyes and have nearly 100% on target accuracy through all 100 rounds really is a testament to how easy and accurate this Glock is! The grip felt great too, felt perfect in my hand and shooting on target felt natural. Definitely like shooting this gen4 more than previous models that were friends glocks. By far my favorite gun I have ever came across from top to bottom.

Already jonesing to get back to the range to shoot this bad boy some more. Tomorrow just might be my day! Supposed to get the day off work, if so I will be taking my CCW class at noon! and then heading to the range with my new Glock!

Also loved the little goodies that came with the Glock package. Best part was 3 magazines! and a good ol speed loader, extra back straps, and even came with its own phosphorus brush. I'm happy to be apart of the Glock family now!

And I tell ya, When I walked away from the range 100 rounds later I felt a million times more confident in my ability to defend my family and myself from any enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Great idea. The G23 is a heavy hitter.

Glad I'm not the only one that thinks the Gen4 G23 is more shootable than the previous ones!

Congrats!

Gen4 G23 here as well, and just as happy after a year of ownership and 2,000 rounds down range. Gotta love that dual RSA soaking up the recoil! I just completed the trifecta: 9mm/.40/.357sig barrels. Can't beat 3 calibers in 1 gun! My EDC, bedside gun, and new favorite Glock.

Awesome story I'm glad you are happy. I'm pretty sure I've read this in the past but if I get a lonewolf 40-9 for my g23 gen3 it will work in the g23 gen4 as well?

Congrats on your new 23. I've been carrying mine every day for about a year now. (G19 before that) and I love it.
