I have always LOVED my Glock 45's. However, I decided to get a G23 gen 4 (.40 cal) as my new primary carry gun. It's the compact version, slimmer and more light weight than my G30SF. I got a Blackhawk holster with the extra lock (you can't remove the gun from the holster without pushing the button on the side of the holster). Plus I got two of the matching mag holsters. The problem is...I HATE this gun!!!! The recoil is SO different from my .45s. It pops upward which is very different than my .45s. I should have asked around, because everyone I ask, says, "yes, the.40 cal. really pops"! I can VERY accurately shoot my .45s one handed, but it takes two hands to shoot the .40 and I'm not nearly as accurate. I know that with enough practice, I'll get better, but I hate that I'm not as accurate as I am with my .45s, especially when it's my primary carry gun!
Some have said that having the .40 cal ported will greatly decrease the upward the recoil. Others have said that it will only make a minimal improvement. Anyone else have this problem? Anyone have their .40 ported and did it make a meaningful difference? Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!
