    I took the day off on Wednesday and drove 70 mi to the “Blue Label” dealer to pick up my new G23. :)

    I had a tough time deciding between the Gen 3 and Gen 4 but after much deliberation, I went with the Gen 3. I waffled back and forth on this for a long time but the straw which broke the camel’s back was borrowing a Gen 4 from a work buddy. I wore it most of Monday and Tuesday. The skin on my side was raw. Anyway, here she is.

    Now let’s see how she shoots. For the first range trip I grabbed a bunch of old personal defense ammo as well as an assortment of target grade ammo – 360 rounds in all.

    How’d she do you ask? Not bad. It’s going to take me a while to get use to everything but most of my shots made it into the kill zone. :)

    I’m pretty pleased with the performance of the pistol. 100% reliability and zero cases going anywhere but to the right. :) Here’s a family shot of the G19 and G23.

    Thanks for looking!

    Good deal, I dont like the finger grooves, 2nd Gen only for me, but I do like to carry and shoot my "CUG" prefix 2nd Gen G-23.

    Same here, the 23 is my first Glock and I like it a LOT.
    The only mod I've done is the extended slide release, which helps my ol' cold arthritic hands quite a bit come cleaning time.

    Thanks for the replies everyone! Put another 150 rounds through it and it continues to perform. :)
