    Was browsing the local gun store today and they had a Glock 22 for about $420 that appeared to be barely fired. The magazine springs felt new, the gun itself had little to no signs of any wear. It looked virtually brand new. It comes with basically everything a new Glock comes with (2 magazines, manual, etc).

    Put down about $120 on it today and hope to pick it up by the end of the month.

    Had the chance to shoot it too - shot like a champ!

    Was considering the Glock 23, but I preferred the way the Glock 22 felt in my hand (I have fairly big hands) and shot it much better. The "snappier" recoil on the Glock 23 was kind of unpleasant to shoot (I'm sure it would improve with practice, but I just didn't like it as much).

    I'm pretty excited because this will be the first gun I will purchase. I was given a SIG P228 as a gift and love that little gun, but I figured I would expand my collection a bit :)

    I'm thinking of CCWing it - after looking at the 22 and the 23 side by side, it appears that the 22 is only half an inch longer at the muzzle (not much at all since I plan to carry IWB) and the grip is about half an inch longer as well. I'm 6'2", have an average build, and don't tend to wear super tight clothing so I don't think I'll have much trouble at all with it. The P228, which I understand is a little bit wider, fits right in there no problem so I'm suspecting the G22 shouldn't be too hard either.

    Anybody have any experiences with the gun?

    Only one of the best pistols ever made.

    Put a fresh trigger spring in just incase. $0.99 part. I like the crossbreed holster for that gun.
