I have a G22 and G27. Love them both. Every time I have let others shoot my G22 I almost have to wrestle it loose from their hands. A good friend shot my G22 a few times and went and purchased a G19. We took it and his two boys, than 12 and 14, to the range. Both of the boys tried the 19 put it dawn and took turns the rest of the day with my 22. Both said they much preferred the 40SW round.
