I just got back from my second range session with my new G23. It has had 36 180 gr PDX1's and 39 180 gr Win. Whitebox FMJ's run through it so far. Last range session I fired the JHP's. Had one hit my forehead on ejection. This session I fired the FMJ's. No failures today of any kind. I did notice that some of the finish is missing on the front of the ejection port though. It looks like some of the ejected brass bounced off of the front of the port. If it's cosmetic, then I don't care. I see the gun as a tool for SD. I would like to know if this issue makes it more probable to have a failure like a stove pipe in the future though. Also, I noticed that the brass today was slightly buldged where the round is unsupported due to the feed ramp. Is this to be expected, or is this a problem? Thanks.
