I was all ready to get a Glock 22. I've carried a P-89 for CCW for over 4 years, so the G22 would still be trimmer/lighter than what I now have. Upgrade time! The good news is that I live in Mesa, AZ ~10 miles from the "GlockMeister". I was all set to buy the G22 for the great price of $474. After some conversation it was suggested that I purchase an upgrade kit: Night Sights, bigger slide release, metal guide rod, etc... only $120 more. It's still a good deal. But now I'm looking at a ~$650 Glock (including tax). This puts me nearly within reach of Kimbers, and Springfield .45's that I've drooled over for years. Now I'm considering just getting the "NO-FRILLS" G22. Is the dang thing gonna break if I don't upgrade? Glocks were supposed to have the rep. that they were ultra-reliable right out of the box. Is the Basic Glock more bang for my buck than the $650 version. Would I be solving a non-problem by adding all this stuff? I've never wanted night sights. If it's so dark that I can't see my sights AND at such a range that I can't point shoot... Should I really pull the trigger? You're the .40 guys. What do you think? Money isn't the really a concern as much as the idea/principle of "fixing the Perfect gun". GM's prices are still ~$50 cheaper than anyone else's in town.
