    A new gun in the house

    I just bought a Glock 23. Boy, does this make me a hypocrite or what? I always said I would never own one of those ugly things but after shooting a friends I had to have one.

    I felt exactly the same as you until I impulsively bought a Glock 30 from a guy at work. I liked it really well, but could not get the accuracy out of it that I could with my other guns (Kimbers) so I traded it for a Springfield XD40, which is very accurate and as reliable as the Glock. The only problem with it is that it\'s not .45acp :P

    Welcome to the club. I\'ve had a G23 since 95, and itís been my main carry weapon since I got my CHL. The finish now has a nice worn look to it.

    Since 96..and yes.its like a nice worn pair of jeans! Just too comfortable.

    And the XD hasnt proven itself "as" reliable as the Glock just yet...

    My first choice is the XD. I've fired a Glock and XD side by side and was in love with the XD. So, hopefully, in a few short months an XD40 in OD Green will swing my way.

    Congrats You to have been hit by the bug. I would not trust my life with any other weapon while I own a few of these a 1st gen G17 that I have has hade aprox. 125,000 rounds through it and I would carry and trust it if I had to with no doubts in my mind. I personally carry a G23 and/or G30 with me at all times and I'm confident if the SHF they will work every time.

    It still isn't here mtrapper. I'll call you when it arrives, but they haven't sent a notice of shipment. I'll call SOG Thursday afternoon.
