She's right... So..ive never done this before ..this is my 23 3rd gen with a laserlyte rear sight and lone wolf barrel. Enjoy.
It's all good!
I hated plastic guns when they first came out and were all the rage, as I came from the revolver generation. That is until I was promoted and needed a smaller duty weapon to carry in soft clothing. I decided to buy a model 23 on a fluke, as a guy I worked with won one with three L/E high cap mags at a gun shop drawing.
Once I started carrying and shooting the weapon,,, I never looked back.
I now have a safe full of pistols and revolvers made by other manufactures, but Glock is what I carry! Just make sure to replace your mag springs every two years if you keep them loaded!
Mine were three years old when all three mags started to FTF on me at the same time! The guy I spoke with at Glock said the springs go bad when the mags are kept fully loaded, as Glock loads their mags to the point that the springs are compressed to the max.
