I would like to know what kind of pockets your carrying a block 36 in. when I think pocket pistol, glocks would not be on my list.

Signing out, Alpha1victor.

yeah, I am not a gun expert or gun smith, so I wanted something that I knew would be very durable.

Default Glock Durability

Maybe there are more durable auto pistols. Maybe the 1911 or CZ but for durability you chose very well. There are lots of comparisons out there but really, the Glock is an all-round damn good investment. Mine is my carry pistol and weight is a factor.

Pathfinder8008 hit the nail on the head. The Glock is simply the best bang for the buck! I have other popular handguns but the more I use my Glock the more it has become my favorite. The Glock is reliable, accurate, durable, simple, lightweight and effective. The availability of almost countless accessories allow me to personalize the Glock to suit me perfectly.

have had this pistol for a week now, and still haven't gotten a chance to shoot it yet........I plan on shooting it next weekend. will probably take the wife, because I dont think she has ever shot anything before.

Here's a suggestion before your wife fires your G23. Go to the library or a used book store and get Amazon.com: Basics of Pistol Shooting (9780935998009): National Rifle Association: Books and make sure she reads it. Then find a pistol range where she can shoot a .22 cal pistol first. She might get surprized shooting a .40 cal if she never shot a gun before.

Where do you go shooting? I'm always looking for somewhere new.
CONGRATULATIONS!!
You got a good gun and I look forward to a range report.

My Dad was thrilled when he got his cataracts removed. He doesn't shoot but he was so excited to be able to read the newspaper again with his morning coffee. Life's simple pleasures...............

Thanks, Winds-of-Change. I do shoot, and lots!! Happy days. I can't wait. Friday is the day for number 1. I'll post after that as soon as I can.
