    Finally the day has come!!

    Yesterday, after paying the last payment on my layaway....The NIB Glock 23 was mine. I went directly to my private land, hung 2 targets and ran a box through it. Spot on, right out of the box. Today was the first day I carried in all day in my Crossbreed and lemme tell ya. First off, I drove well over a 100 miles today. On, top of that i worked a job on the side of the Hwy and walked over 6 miles. Not a problem in the world. I think, after lots of other weapons and many, many dollars later, i have found my perfect gun. For me at least. The gun and the holster dissapear and are great. Thanks to all of you who pointed me in the Glock direction. Plus, I've now made great friends with a new local dealer and got a great price! $505 out the door. I'll get pics up as soon as I can.
    God Bless America!!

    That would be my fav to.....I used alternate between my G23, G19 until I put the CT grips on work gave me, then i stopped using the G19. My LH grip isn't CT Friendly.

    I Carry in an MTAC at work when I where a collared shirt and have to tuck in my shirt, but when I can go more comfortable with a cover jacket VMII is SOOOO comfy.

    Just kidding... congratulations on a winning combo. (Now you need a G-27!)

    Congrats! I've had my G-23 for about 8 or 9 years now and I love it! Great weapon!

    I love my XDsc for my Bug too! Wanted to try the XD and I've been happy with that just as much.

    Great Guns!

    Glad you like the G-23... You won't regret it!

    I carry a G27 and a G22 myself. Glocks are great. I've carried one every day for about 10 years.

    Your local dealer wouldn't be a man named "Mike" who is a retired police officer, would it? If so, he is a good guy.

    I got my fingerprinting merit badge through him a long, long time ago (like just after they discovered electric light and all.....).

    I've never bought a gun from him, though. I'll have to change that. I did buy a friend's dad a CCL class from him as a gift once....
