    Just picked up my newest Glock, a G23 Gen 4, test fired January 10, 2012. I think I got a decent deal on it. $525 for the gun (couple boxes of ammo through it, perfect condition) and everything it came with new, a cheap cloth holster, and 218 rounds of ammo (50 rounds of Federal Champion, 82 rounds of Blazer, and 86 rounds of hollow point ammo marked R P 40 S&W--no idea what this last one is. Reloads?). It is my first Gen 4, and I'm very excited to see how it fires!

    It looks like people on this forum are generally happy with the 4th gen G23s. I have a 3rd Gen Glock 22, and I love the feel and the kick (almost a snappy feeling?). My Glock collection now consists of a 19, 21sf, 22, 23, and a 30sf. I'm very excited but already thinking about what's next on the list. I wish Glock would come out with a gen 4 20 soon!

    Congrats on the new Glock!

    I am also holding out for a new Gen4 G20 or G29...although I must say that the G20SF I have is doing just fine. I actually prefer the RTF4 grip, along with the larger magazine catch.

    Glad you're happy with the 20sf. If Glock doesn't come out with the 4th Gen 20 in the next couple months, I might just go with the 20sf. Is there any way to find out when Glock is coming out with new guns?

    Congrats on the new G23 Gen 4! I only have a G17 now but have Glock Fever. I'll probably get a g22 AND g21 Too. Just have to save my pennies.

    Love my G23 Gen 4. All this talk about Gen 3 or Gen 4, bottom line it's a Glock.

    Remington. If they look like the ones in the picture below, they're not reloads. These are Remington Golden Sabers, with a brass bullet jacket and nickel plated brass casing:

    Here's another JHP design Remington has used, I don't know if they still make it or if they ever used it in .40SW:

    And another JHP that looks almost like a Hornady XTP:
