    I finally joined the Glock cult and bought a G23

    Two of them actually, one for me and one for the g/f. NIB at $489. I pick them up tomorrow. :) Lookin' forward to it.....from there it will be a quick fieldstrip and cleaning followed by 2-300 rounds. New guns and shooting make for a happy Mr. Geringer.

    Try the Glock M27. I'll bet you like it better than the M23. Best of all, M22 and M23 mags work just as well and you can even get spacers for a seamless grip on the extended mags.

    Thanks for the advice, and while I do like the G27, I think the G19/23/32 is the perfect size and best Glock design by far. The G27 is nice but I prefer service sized handguns.

    Glock Paste

    Remember when you field strip & clean your new Glock Toys NOT to remove that "special factory paste" that Glock factory lubes your firearm with.
    Does GLOCK still put that "Do Not Remove Paste" on their N.I.B. firearms?

    I've had mine for years and it's never had a misfire or jam. I also prefer it to the 27. Now load it with 180 gr Ranger T or 180 gr Gold Dots and you're all set.

    LOL(very good)...I didn't see that on the bottom of my Glocks. All hail Gaston Glock and his Drastic Plastic.

    Congrats on the new pistols. One of my gunsmiths has a saying and please do not take this as Glock bashing but here it is, "The only plastic that should come anywhere near a pistol is a credit card"

    The problem with that statement is that so many other pstols are now jumping onto the ideas of incorporating plastic into the frames. Look at the Springfield Armory XD series. Walther & Smith and Wesson's joint enterprise resulting in the new Smith P99? It's starting to make Glock look like a ground breaker in the field. What about the H&K USP series? A lot of SpecOps overseas are using these guys where the standard bearer used to be the venerable Bowning Hi-Power. Just a thought.

    ExSoldier, my Para's (3x) all came with plastic MSH's so I hear and feel you. That was rectified though.
