    Indiana State Police went with the G22 a few months back, they are already dumping them for the G17.

    One of the RCMP up here had his Glock .40 G26(? the small one) split open on him, I also know another guy that had a similar problem with the larger .40cal version. I know of only one person that had problems with a G17 and that was a crack in the slide near the ejection port and a fairly high round count.

    Just for what it's worth here is a link to an interesting discussion over at stoppingpower.net about this issue.

    I read thru that stoppingpower.net thread and was happy to find that the G23 in .40 Sweet & Wicked doesn't seem to have widely reported problems.

    Right now, I'm simply not worried that others don't care for my choice in a carry piece, or caliber. Works fine for me and I like it!

    Well, I can remember when the G23's 3rd generations came out with the extra frame block which is the one I bought.

    I have about 3,000 rounds through mine and it has also been beaten to hell all over the USA in many different kinds of terrain. I never had a problem. I always used factory fresh ammo and from a quality manufacturer too.
    So, FWIW I would and have trusted my life on my G23 .40 cal.

    Well I for one will continue to enjoy my Glock 22. Many rounds have been launched down range and never a problem. I am glad many of you shoot and enjoy Glocks as I do. I also am glad many of you don't enjoy them. That is what makes life grand.

    No problems here, Jack!

    I kind of like how some call it "Short & Weak" on the one hand, and then say they don't like it because it isn't controllable on the other. (Maybe it's the shooter who's Short & Weak.)

    But seriously, folks. . . I love the way the G23 shoots. After shooting 9mm for quite a while, the Glock (.40) seems like a "blaster." As for control during rapid-fire, I guess the gun just fits me well.

    Heck, it's all good!

    G32

    I recently noted that my G32 in 357 Sig would disengage the Glock Model rail light on the second shot of the fully charged magazine. I did not note this when using the G23 barrell with the same gun and light.

    Strange but it disengages the Glock Tac light and the dang thing falls off!!

    i dont even know how many handguns i own now (i outgrew my gun-safe, then i outgrew my gun-room, and now im rapidly outgrowing my gun-basement), and they all get shot as regularly as possible. of all my guns from all manufacturers the only manufacturer that i can claim has been absolutely 100% reliable for me has been my glocks. i have never had any type of failure from my g17, g19, or g33. my g17 has never been cleaned or even lubed since i purchased it new. after over 16,000 rounds it has been just as reliable as my g19/g33 that do get cleaned and lubed. if my g17 ever fails me in some way ill clean/lube it, but i dont expect a failure any time soon.
    my springfield TRP has never failed to feed or fire, but i did have an issue with one of the magazines failing to lock the slide back when empty. thats not a failure even worth mentioning i know, but it still makes it less than 100%. so far my stainless colt combat commander xse has been 100%, but i dont even have 1000 rounds through it yet so theres not enough data to lay any claims with it just yet.
    i resisted glocks for many years, but did a 180 after realizing the undeniable qualities of this platform. i dont care if they have no "soul", i dont care if theyre "ugly", and im even willing to accept the sucky grip angle because in the end all i want is a weapon that i know i can depend on no matter what.

    .....and for all glock owners everywhere, im in the process of building a glock owners forum at http://GlockCarry.com which i hope to have online this weekend.
