I bought my G23 the last week of 2009, and have been to the range about 6 times, and am nearing the 1000 round mark. I have had several malfunctions with FTF seeming to be the main issue. I also had one where the fresh round actually looke like a stovepipe, w/the front of the unfired bullet pointing straight up. At this point, I've probably had ~8 total malfunctions including 2 while a friend was shooting. It's tough b/c there are so many variables, including my stance/grip-which I admit may be to blame. I've been shooting a mix of winchester white box and Federal range ammo--no re-loads. Anyway, I guess I'll number my magazines (just got 3 new ones) and see if there is a magazine issue. I just had hoped that the gun would be more flawless--as many have posted here regarding firing reliability. Am I being overly concerned? When do most become suspicious of the actual gun having a problem?
