    I Have Been Assimilated

    Resistance is futile...






    What can I say...I like the Gen 4 a lot better than I ever liked the Gen 3. I might actually keep this one. If not, I can always sell it...LOL.

    Oh it isn't the amount of guns I have...the issue is, every time I have ever bought a Glock, I sold it. For some reason I have never been able to develop an attachment to them.

    There is something about these Gen 4 guns though...and this G23 feels pretty good in my hand and I think that has a lot to do with it. Also, the ones I have had in the past were before I got my CHL, so they were nothing but range guns and they got boring...so away they went with no regret. Who knows...I seem to like this one enough to maybe even look into getting another some time soon. I have been eye balling the G36 for a little while now as i wouldn't mind having a single stack .45...but we'll see.

    Well, say good bye to tap/rack failure drills. You'll have to invent things to make your range time suspenseful and exciting.

    I tried to like Glocks. I bought 7 in the last 3 years; some even twice. Just do not like the light trigger (I am an old time revolver guy), lack of hammer and safety. Your brain may be your best safety but mine isn't at my age. :)

    You are not alone. A lot of ppl have that feeling towards Glocks. Until they get a concealed permit and then it is back to the tried and true friend that is the glockness ;)The only thing I do not like with the Gen4's is the aggressive stipling they have on the grips, but that is taken care of quite easily by a 15 dollar purchase of the Talon wrap around rubberized grip ;)

    Just picked up me another Gen 4 G26 to go with my G4 19. Like the gen 4s much better than the Gen 3 or earlier. Congrats n the new G23. I'm sure it'll serve you well.
