    Hey guys! Im new here and semi-new to firearms. Anyways, got a nice tax return and decided to purchase a brand new Glock 22 RTF2. Got a great deal on it at $550 OTD. I LOVE the RTF grip. It feels real stable and comfortable in my hand. I am hoping to use it as a carry gun but I don't know if it will be to big or not. Anyone successfully carry a g22 daily? I will probably go with the Crossbreed Supertuck. Here are some pics. I know everyone loves pics :supergrin:

    For me, the full-size Glocks are too big to conceal. You may have different results. I can hide my G19 under a loose shirt or light jacket with ease.

    Congrats on the Glock. Go shoot it. You'll be hooked. I have.

    welcome! excellent choice on the RTF. I have the 19RTF2 and its my favorite grip on any gun I've fired yet.

    I sure hope that in the future they offer the RTF2 grip as an option or something.. i love it that much.

    Congrats on the new Glock and now go put some rounds downrange. If you have any beginner handgun courses in your area, maybe a NRA safety course, I recommend taking it.

    It's a huge responsibility carrying a concealed firearm and you owe it to yourself and those you protect to train and educate as much as you can.

    I recommend a good holster maybe something from Comp Tac or RAVEN to start.

    Have fun and be safe!

    Thanks for all the replies. I love this forum. I put 100 rounds through it the day I bought it and I was in love. I went back to the range about a week ago and did another 150 rounds and I actually had a double feed. I cleaned and lightly lubed it after the first 100. I was a little shocked but it possibly could have been an error on my part :shocked:.
