Thanks for all the responses to my earlier post about the grip size of a 30SF compared to a 19. Now I have another question. Long story short, I am going to be getting a pretty good (1 time only) deal on a new handgun from an acquaintance/gun shop owner. I am afflicted with small hands and have found that a 19/23 feels OK in my hand (my trigger finger ends just a smidge past the trigger guard). It feels a little awkward on the trigger but I think that may be due to the trigger safety that I am not used to yet. I was recently given a brand new Streamlight TLR-3 which I really don't want to go to waste. My ideal caliber is the .40, however, I keep hearing horror stories about G23's with mounted lights. I am not a huge fan of the 9mm and considered going to the G30SF. Unfortunately, that is one of the weapons my friend cannot get me a good deal on. I am considering going with the G23 and just attaching the light when the gun is at bedside and not when I am at the range. It is my understanding that the issues with the G23 w/light occur only after firing rounds with the light mounted. Is this the case, or does the weapon become unreliable even if the light is attached and it isn't fired? If I do start having issues with reliability, will Glock do anything to remedy the problem or am I just SOL? Also, how common are these reliability issues with the G23, it seems like the gun for me, but reliability is a concern for a home defense weapon. One last question... If a person with small hands were to buy one gun that wasn't a glock for home defense and wanted to spend around the same amount of cash, what brand/models are the most reliable? Thanks in advance for all the help!
