G23 vs G22

    Poohgyrr trout fear me!

    For some reason I just shoot the G23 better then the G22. More practice would probably help, but until then, the 23 does it for me.

    What about you guys?
  2. Well then, you ought to try a G27. Alot of folks here claim they shoot that better than the G23. Including myself.

    I shoot my 30 better than my 21. Anybody else think there might be something to the idea of a dual recoil spring.
  5. That's an interesting thought.

    Speaking tor myself, I sold my G27 to a friend, who likes it.

    And the G30 shot soft & accurate for me.

    I also prefer the compact Glock to a full size, though I like 9mm much better.

    I shoot the G22 better than my G23 but like the G23 better for carry.

    I shoot my G22 a bit better, but my G23 is my go to gun.
  10. I love all GLOCKS!!!! but I just feel better holding the compacts! Not to big , not to small, just right!:upeyes:
    I just traded my G29 for a TAURUS PT1911 :shocked: I know what was I thinking!:steamed:
    Then traded the TAURUS for a M&P AND NOW i SOLD THE m&p AND got myself a GLOCK23 to add to my GLOCK 38! And let me tell you, I am sooooo happy with the GLOCK23!!! Now I want to trade my G38 for the G27!!!! They are just so good together!:embarassed:

    I will never let go of any of my babies again!!!! I promise!!!!

    If I could only have one gun and I mean only one it would be the G22. I can hit a silhouette at 100yards with it and I can put rounds on target fast at closer ranges. The ultimate SHTF firearm in my opinion. That being said, I like them all. The 27 is one of my EDCs and I never feal under-armed with it.

    The 23 fits my my hand well. But I also want to have the 22.

    Ditto that ^^^

    I love shooting my G22, but no matter how you tuck it, the butt is in the way somewhere! I EDC my H&K .40 USP now, great mix. Same length of the G22, however the butt is sized like a G23, much easier to CC.

    If the world went to s**t though, the G22 would be the first gun I'd grab, then the 12ga, then maybe the HK.

    This gun is too big for me, and the flash! Woooo!!!
    I have 7 mags, box and stuff.
    Anyone wanna trade for the g22 or g23??

    I once owned a G22 and didn't like it. I carry a dept issue G23 on duty now and I really like it. I shoot the 23 much better than the 22. My wife just bought me a new G27 for Christmas. I LOVE the 27. It's way more accurate than the 23. That may sound crazy but in my hands it's true. My 27 will out shoot my 23 any day of the week. It's very accurate. Today I put my G32 barrel in it and shot 357 Sig for a while. It was a mean looking gun with almost an inch of barrel sticking out from the muzzle end. 357 Sig is a handful in the baby glock. If I could only keep one of my Glocks it would be my 27. Although it would be hard parting with my G19. I bought it several years ago when you couldn't find a 9mm Glock and they were importing Glocks from Austria. My 19 was completely made in Austria and has all the Austrian markings. I think it's a keeper.

    For HD or OC you will not regret it. IMO, the finest pistol ever made

    I've got a line on a pristine, like new 22 RTF2 with gills that I may buy today. I've been looking for a pistol to do a RMR red dot setup, and this may be it. May buy a slide so I don't have to mill the fishgill slide.
