    I went with my future son and law to get him a gun and brought back a G23 for myself. Wife is out of town so I haven't broken the news to her yet. I saw a gen 4 22 at the show and actually I like the gen 3 better. The family is growing G35, G17 now G23. Don't have pictures yet. So EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have but after holding this one I really do not think it is necessary, because I would have to get an extender and would make it practically the same size except the small difference in barrell length. Besides I have to break the news to the wife about this one before I go for another LOL

    No need to "break the news", just do like I did last weekend. Came home from the gun show and set gun case on the kitchen table while taking off my jacket. Wife walked out, looked at gun case and gave me "the look". I convinced her she "needed" to hold it (which she did eventually), and we both carried on with our day. Perfect! :supergrin: Did I ever mention, I've got a great wife! :supergrin:

    Congratulations! My wife broke the news to me just before Christmas. I saw a Glock 23 for a good price in my favorite gun store and she said "why don't you get it?" Then she said "I am buying Merry Christmas"!

    She's a keeper! After 40 years of marriage she still makes my heart race and then she buys me a new pistol to boot! :supergrin:

    I love the 23 and I tend to CC it more and more. I like the snappy recoil! In fact I love it!

    I hope you get years of shooting pleasure out of your new pistola!

    God bless!

    Robert

    Nope...IMO the GAP floorplate is much better than an extender. It provides a very secure grip and still maintains the the sub's more concealable size.
