    Finally picked up my first! This will be my everything gun. HD, CCW, and range. ( until I get another by the end of the year! )

    Walking in I was going to get a G19 Gen 3 but by the time I walked out I had a G23 Gen 3:) can't complain! Now I have the option to get the lone wolf barrel in 9mm for it if I care to.

    Picked it up charged to card for $530. Wanted to build a relationship with the shop 2 miles away.

    And with out pics, no proof:)


    Can't wait to fire it this weekend. And then next weekend I have my CCW course! After too many to count trips to the range shooting, it's great to finally be an owner.

    Be safe-

    What are the 2 casings it came with from glock for? Just showing it was shot and tested? Was dated 1/5/11

    Test fire casings are sometimes required in some states.

    Just curious, what swayed you to go with a .40?

    I was 50/50 between the 19vs23. They ran out of Gen 3 19 last week and wouldn't have any in for a week. So being split down the middle I saw no loss getting the 23. Especially since I can make it a 9mm still!

    Honest answer, thank you. I'm between the 2 myself but about a month from purchase so I have some time.

    Best of luck. I could've gotten it cheaper online but as said I wanted to start a relationship with the LGS 2 miles away...especially since I've drooled in there a lot ha.

    Have my CCW course coming up so didn't want to wait and not be able to get a couple hundred rounds through it before.

    I was never a lover or hater of 9vs40. I adapt.

    Being my first gun, in the next 12 months I'll probably get 1 or 2 more pistols so one could be a 9mm

    Does anyone know when PZP date code was? My two test rounds were fired 1/5/11. I think the first P means august? So maybe agaust 2010?

    With the G23 you have the ability to go 9mm, 40 S&W and 357 Sig. Trying myself to get the G23. They have one on sale up North of me but I am still a few hundred short. Thanks for posting and the picture.

    At first I was still a little...ehh I should've gone with the 19....but it makes so much more sense now having gone with the 23. Having the ability to have three guns in one? Awesome. I'll probably still mainly use .40sw so I can become proficient in it (since it'll be my CCW)..i shoot ~1000/month at the range but when I get my first 9mm I'll also pick up a lone wolf barrel for the g23 so I have the ability to switch.

    I have a G23C (compensated). I've had it for years and it is still one of my most reliable pistols. So much so, I bought one for my daughter as a college graduation present. She loves it. However, her older sister is pissed off because she got a SW40.

    Good to hear! I just picked up XS big dot sights and installed them tonight but wasn't able to make it to the range, so tomorrow I'll be out for a couple hundred through it for it's first range session:)
