;a ;f;f ;a Earlier today, I bought my first glock pistol. It's a glock model 23 40 caliber. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet but I plan to over the next few days when the time permits.

This model 23 is first glock that I have actually bought for myself. It's brand spankin' new and I already love it. I already own a glock model 22 that I inherited from my dad when he died of cancer back in 1999. It's a good pistol but I wanted something a bit more compact so I went shopping for another glock that would more suitable for CCW purposes. When all was said and done it came down to either a model 27 or this model 23. I liked 'em both and wanted 'em both but I could only afford one so I chose the 23 because I liked the longer 4" barrel (which I think will give me better overall ballistic performance).

FWIW, the ammo that I have decided to use is a 180 grain winchester sxt's and some winchester white box 180 grain jhp's. This is the same ammo that I use in my dads glock 22 and I see no reason to make a change now. I'm more than satisfied with winchester ammo but in the future I would like to try some of the georgia arms 180 grain gold dot ammo just to see what it's like in the accuracy and power department.

By the way, can anybody recommend to me a good IWB holster that won't be too hot or to unconfortable to wear in the (ungodly) hot:cool: (and humid):cool: georgia sun? I also need a good, leather pistol belt too. Any advise would be welcomed. Thanks in advance.

Good choice on the 23.
I have mine in a Sidearmor IWB. Very comfortable, and w/ the j-hooks easy to get on and off. I'm actually going to be getting another one in the near future to set up for cross draw. It's easier to grab another holster than to take the time to change the j-hook over. The belt I've been using is a work belt I got from my company. It's not made for a gun belt, but is nice and sturdy. I can't even fold it over between my fingers. The stamp on it is A&E Group St. Louis, MO.

Good grab, I have a Gen 2 G-23, I carry a G-22/27combo, but the G-23 is what I should carry.....why I don’t I have no clue as it fits the best of both worlds, carry and concealment.
Mine is very accurate.

I shot a 23 many years ago, probably not too long after they came out. I just remember it being quite snappy. It was a good shooter of course, I mean, hey, it's a GLOCK. I might have one some day. The compact GLOCK is my favorite frame size.

Check out Bravo Concealment for holsters. I think they have a two for one sale right now and you could get OWB and IWB holsters for a bit over $50. I have several of their holsters and like them a lot.

I believe the G23 is the best compromise between size, capacity and punch there is. I thought that was true in 2002 when this thread was started and still true today.

It's too bad that Glock Talk threads don't automatically die PERMANENTLY a year after the last post is made. :)

ElevenO the Mod 23 was my first Glock also. Back then the Beretta 40 caliber was my issued pistol. So I had access to plenty of 40 S&W ammo. I found I could shoot the 23 very well. I carried it in an OWB dillon leather holster for it. I now use Simply Rugged leather. The 23 has been replaced by a Gen 3 21sf. I wish I still had that 23.
