    First, allow me to thank everyone here that provide so much information.
    I picked up my first Glock (G23) just before 2010, and am once again hooked on firearms. I grew up hunting and shooting, but have been away for ~15 years.

    I look forward to becoming a part of the forum. Thanks again.

    Now...Time to post my first "question" type thread.:supergrin:

    Welcome and congrats! G23 was my first firearm ten months ago and I couldn't have made a better choice.

    Great choice. I love my G23 it was my second glock. It's very versatile. You shoot 9mm if you want by getting a lonewolf conversion barrel. You can also interchange parts with a G19. Now just keep shooting it and enjoy it.

    Yea--I've already put ~350 rounds through it. I let my friend who owns a a G27 fire 2 magazines, and he must have been limp wristing b/c he got 2 or 3 FTE's. No prob with me though.

    I have 200 rounds with me for after work at the range today too. I gues I have a slightly obessesive behavior, b/c I always become addicted with any new (and cool) purchase. The G23 is no exception. I just enjoy "being able to enjoy" my stuff to the fullest. That's what drew me to this forum--the knowledge and support that is available here has already made my firearm re-introduction much better, and more enjoyable.

    Thanks again for the welcome.

    An OD G23 was my first glock, I pick up my second on Sat(G34) but I think I am going to build my custom as a 35 just for the barrel and caliber options.

    Good choice on the 23. It's my first, and currently only handgun. 900 rds and no problems here.
