Finally got ot shoot my G23.
Yesterday, I finally got a chance to get to the range with my G23. I finally SEE what all the fuss is about. Man, what a really nice machine. Only ran about 100 rounds through her but she didn't hiccup once. I fed her 50 rounds of Independence Ammo 180 gr. FMJ that I bought at the range and then I ran 50 more Winchester "Ranger" 155 gr. JHP. that I picked up when I bought the gun. I was able to get a little grouping thing going on from just pointing and shooting. I did aim a few rounds and was very pleased with the guns performance. Lately, I've been reading some stories about the recoil of the G23 and how it's convinced some folks to go with a G19. The G19 is a fine gun and 9mm has been proven a very effective caliber for many years and I'll never talk bad about it. AND...I'll admit after reading all those reports re: recoil, I was a little apprehenseive before shooting the G23. However, upon shooting...all I can say is, I think I made the right choice for me and my CCW purposes. That might have something to do with the fact that until I got the Glock, my only other CCW piece was a S&W 642. Now if you want to feel something "peppy" in your hand, load you up one of them little rascals with some +Ps and commence fire. IMHO the G23 feels tame compared to the 642. I still plan on carrying the 642 in certain circumstances, just because it is lighter and smaller than the G23 when fully loaded. However I will be packing the Glock whenever possible. Anyway I just wanted to submit a report. Thanks!
