Hi! I'm a new member and this is my first post. I'm just days away from my first Glock purchase. I've decided on the Glock 22. I like the .45 round, but only in a Springfield Armory 1911. But if we were all rich, we'd have all the weapons we want. For home defense, shooting, accuracy and reliability - I believe I've made the right choice on the G22. I don't care for the lighter, higher speed ballistics of the 9mm (and .357 SIG for that matter), so the .40 S&W makes a logical choice. I've fired a .45 before, but never a .40 or 9mm. What can I expect? I've handled both the G22 and G23, and favor the larger frame G22. Also, what are your takes on the ported vs. unported. My theory is 'If it ain't broke, don't put holes in it.' Now granted, I have a Smith & Wesson Performance Center 629 Hunter (Not that ugly green one that they're putting out now) Its ported, but its also a .44 Magnum with a 6" barrel. I excited about the Glock. Its cold in Pennsylvania right now (and snowy), so I may not get to the range right away . . . . But I can't wait!
