    I have never been a big fan of the 40 S&W round.I got rid of my last 40 last month because I have just not been able to shoot the 40 very well compared to my other calibers.
    As of this month I no longer had a 40 or a Glock. But yesterday I made a trade for a Glock 23 with a co worker.I can shoot this gun better than any 40 I have ever shot.I like it so much I shot 850 rounds out of it the first day I had it.
    I am now going to use it in my Defensive Class this summer and I am going to use it as my Primary Carry Gun.
    I am in love with a 40 for the first time ever.
    I am a happy man!!!!

    Congrats. I like the 40, I have more ACP and more 9mms but I still like my 40s.

    Thats good! I have a Gen4 22 and I don't shoot it as well as my Gen 3 17. I even prefer the Gen 4 grip. I can shoot the 22 fine, but I certainly can't hold as tight of groups with it. Could be the gun, not the caliber though.

    Congratulation! I enjoyed reading the "happiness" in your post.

    There is nothing like owning a gun that you can just shoot and hit what your are aiming at to put a smile on ones face.

    Love my G22 but would have gladly chose the G23 if it were the same price and condition of the G22 I bought used. Enjoy.

    What can I say... I grow on people.. :)

    Seriously though, I don't know if I would have used the .40 much if I hadn't first experienced it out of the g23. It's a really great way to launch the 10mm kurz, or the 40 short & weak.. lol

    Congratulations, the G23 is a fine pistol; very versatile also, like the G22, but easier to carry.

    You may want to shoot that first otherwise you may come to hate the 40 again.
