Hi DCG group,
I'm new to the group and handguns, own a Beretta FS92 (given to my wife for Mother's Day!) but want a little bigger gun, maybe a 40 and I like the feel, the targeting of Glocks but when I move on to practical application practice I wonder if my left handedness will slow me down. I'm sure the handedness issue has been dealt with in other threads but I want to know what other leftie Glock owners have to say. I can't do much coordinated things with my right hand...
Now that I have my first Glock (19) I want more ! (a 21)
The 23 is a good way to go Glock. Congrats on the new addition to the family!
Ahhhh..... GlockVader is most pleased.

I am a lefty and have never had an issue with a Glock. Extended slide stop made it much easier to actually use the slide stop, although I usually grip and rip. Slight adjustment to grip and I can actuate the mag release fine, Gen 4's should resolve any of those issues regardless.
I rejected the Glock pistols a few times. After reading this and a few other forums, I have come to have a great respect for the Glock line of pistols. the purchase I will make WILL be the G23, for my carry option. I know I will not be disappointed.

GLO, I honestly don't think you'll be disappointed. Worst case scenario, if you find the G23 just isn't for you, Glocks are some of the easiest pistols to sell, their name alone sells, and they retain their value even after thousands of rounds. Post pics when you get it!
GV, I have had one in my hand, but was stuck on aquiring a SA XDm chambered in 9mm. I had a change of heart and wanted a heavier load/caliber for a carry all. I started looking at the .40, and then the Glock actually shined brighter for me. Thanks for the input, and I will post the family pics....

on the newer Glock's you can switch the mag release, but the slide stop is still for right handers. That would not be an issue if all you do is slingshot when you insert a new mag.
On the other hand, M&P's are completely ambidextrous and are very Glock like with regards to reliability. Both are fantastic and are top notch in my book. If I were to make a choice it would be an M&P or Glock third gen.
Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!
