    OK so I pulled the trigger and my new Glock will be ordered on Monday.
    A buddy dropped by today and gave me about 1000 40 cal cases, I had no choice. The known so far is G23 with night sights. I believe I will get it in basic black. Any suggestions as far as other options or color? Not really worried about generation 4 because the Glock already fits and I am right handed. I love the Talon grips and will either make my own or spend the $9. Then the holster issues will start. This will be my primary carry gun. The G23 will make nice companion for my G17 and G20. Other know issues. will get extended slide lock and release. No other mods will be made.

    You may have problems of inadvertent release of the magazine with the extended magazine release. Some people have filed theirs down a little to still be longer than the original, but not too long.

    There was another type of extended magazine release, made by Vickers if I remember correctly, that people really like. I think it has rounded corners, but I'm not sure if it's shorter than the Glock Extended Magazine Release.

    I have a Don Hume H721 OT(open top) fit code 36-4 over the waistband conceal holster for my G23 that I like a lot, but the end of the grip still prints a little. Been thinking of in the waistband holsters lately but haven't had a chance to try any yet.

    Corrected post did not mean mag release I meant slide lock and release. Thanks. I have been looking at the Hume holsters. I am thinking either another high noon or some type of pancake holster. I want to carry more IWB.

    I carry my G 27 in a Don Hume H721 OT. It is a great holster for the price.

    I bought this last month. If I had bought this when I first started carrying, I could have saved hundreds, maybe thousands, on holsters.
