Ok guys called around all the local stores and visited my local "shoot straight" and got the low down on inventory. Only gen 4 glock I have found in Orlando is a g27 (well they have the .45 and 10mm but I'm not looking at those calibers). I was sort of trying to stay away from the G27 because not a big fan of the short grip (although I know I can get a grip extender which would nullify that issue). The same store also has the gen 3 G23. Only 50$ difference and note that the gen 4 comes with a 3rd magazine. I'm torn between the 2 and tomorrow is payday and therefore purchase day. Excited either way! But still can't make up my mind.
