Love my new G23 Gen 4 -- Range report/review


January 24, 2013, 05:51 PM
Well hot damn I am one happy camper!! Just took my new Glock 23 Gen4 to the range yesterday and it was amazing! If I had more money in my bank account I would've drained it on ammo, that's how much I loved shooting it. Put a 100 rounds of PMC bronze down range and it mowed down the targets flawlessly. I was so amazed at the difference in recoil from previous gen glocks and an incredible difference from my s&w .40 cal. The accuracy was simply amazing as well. I just found the gun I will be carrying on me every day of my life, and I tell you all of a sudden I feel a whole lot safer!!

I was surprised right off the bat at how close I was able to group together shots, quite a few times double tapping bullseyes and constantly kept every follow up shot right next to the last one. <--And I am by no means an expert shooter, so me being able to group together bullseyes and have nearly 100% on target accuracy through all 100 rounds really is a testament to how easy and accurate this Glock is! The grip felt great too, felt perfect in my hand and shooting on target felt natural. Definitely like shooting this gen4 more than previous models that were friends glocks. By far my favorite gun I have ever came across from top to bottom.

Already jonesing to get back to the range to shoot this bad boy some more. Tomorrow just might be my day! Supposed to get the day off work, if so I will be taking my CCW class at noon! and then heading to the range with my new Glock!

Also loved the little goodies that came with the Glock package. Best part was 3 magazines! and a good ol speed loader, extra back straps, and even came with its own phosphorus brush. I'm happy to be apart of the Glock family now!

And I tell ya, When I walked away from the range 100 rounds later I felt a million times more confident in my ability to defend my family and myself from any enemies, both foreign and domestic.

GLad you found the gun that fits you. It's not easy finding a gun like that seems like an extension of your hand. You were also very lucky to find one of the best handguns in the world with utter rrelaibility and performance. I have the G22 4th Generation and enjoy it as much as you do with yours. I have the G19 3rd Gen and thinking of changing it the 4th Gen only because I like the grip better. I decided not to since I shoot my G19 actually better than the 4th Gen G22.

I bought my "first" model 23 in 1993; a few months after the purchase Glock replaced it because of multiple problems. In 2009 Glock replaced the Gen2 frame with a Gen3 because of internal plastic breakage. They also replaced the original very problematic magazines. This was done 100% at Glock's cost. Since the frame fix in 2009, coupled with better magazines, mine has been flawless. It's the gun I carry most of the time and I have complete confidence in it now.

It's also the gun my wife used to repel a front door crashing intruder in 2007.

My only advice is practice, practice and then practice some more. Shot placement is king and there's no substitute for hands-on training.
