Today is the day! I am a little excited too.
I have tried so hard for so long to not like Glocks. I had a 17 many years ago that was not a good gun. I think I got one of the only lemons ever put out by Glock. Sold it to my cousin less than 6 months or so I think after I got it. He finally got it working well enough to be a range gun but then he sold it years later. I just never liked the grip, it felt like holding a 2X4 to me and the angle was not right but I just can't get past the whole reliability and toughness reputation. I have to give them another chance.
A couple of weeks ago I was at a local gun shop and decided to hold a 23, since I had never actually held one of the particular model. Wow, it actually fit my hand pretty well. Now, part of that may be the fact that I no longer have sausage links for fingers and my hands are skinnier but the trigger reach on this Glock seemed less of a reach to me. So I started dreaming of .40 cal magazines with 13 rounds in them and the reliability of a Glock.
My wife insists I buy a new gun as a reward for the hard work I have put in and continue to put in every night to loose the 110 pounds I have lost and I am not going to argue with her. (she's a hell of a lady guys. I got the best out there, loves guns, carries an XD-.40sc and loves me! I Know I am one lucky guy.) And today I am going to go pick up a brand new, Glock 23, a holster and a spare magazine carrier.
I will take some pics tonight and post them and I will of course post a range report after the first range trip which will probably be tomorrow, Saturday.
(And no....before anyone asks, I will not be changing my screen name again. I still love my Sigs. :) )
And please, this is about the gun, not the weight I have lost. So, no need to tell me congratulations on the weight loss. I appreciate it but, I didn't post this to get adulations for the weight loss.
