    :supergrin::supergrin: I finally own my first .40 cal. A Gen 4 G23. I got this to hold me over until I get my G38. Ive been applying at some local police agencies and want to get familiar with the cal. the local leo's carry. I have shot many of .40 cal handguns but never owned any I think it was a good first start. Ill try to get some pics up soon.

    Cool, my primary right now is a G19, my first glock. had it a while know. I believe the new G23 may take that over and retire the G19. So far no probs with it at the range with mixed ammo, 250 rnds. I was a little scared of what may happen do to the Gen 4 horror stories. Thats out the window now and i love it.

    I will also note that I love the Gen4 grip with NO backstraps, I have big long hands and it just fits so much better for me. The 38 im getting is a gen4 and I think I may need a 19 to finish it off

    In my opinion I wouldnt say its to SNAPPY. To me it has more snap than a 9MM but its still very controlable. My wife was a little concerend about shooting it becouse what others have said but after a few rounds she said she likes it and its very nice to shoot.

    Congrats. Mine is a gen 3 and a typical Glock--reliable as the sun rising in the east.

    I love mine, had it pre-ordered for 6 months before they were out for sale. I carry it every day and I haven't had a problem out of it.
