it all started over ten years ago. LGS and range had a used G23 for sale that was in good condition and foolishly I touched it to see how it felt. The damn thing followed me home and infected me with the wants for more. Long story short, I have had several and did the barbie thing to some. I like some and keep those but others just don't 'fit'. But they do what they are supposed to do and I like that, so does my wife. She was mad when I traded off the G26 but loves her new G19! I like it too but I like the G23 multi-cal (9mm, 40 S&W, 357 sig) even more.
