I've been looking for my first handgun for awhile. I was going back and forth between the Glock 22, XD-40.....decided to go with the Glock 22....mine is on layaway right now and should be picked up shortly - i'll just have to settle for using my buddie's g22 for now!. I actually liked how the glock felt in my hands, and its def. hard to argue with Glock's proven track record. Cant wait to take this thing to the range!!!
