Shot my G17 and G23 yesterday..

I went to the range yesterday and shot my G17 and my G23 back to back for the first time. I honestly think I like the G23 more. It maybe because it fits my hand better. Just seemed like shot placement was better and the recoil wasn't nearly as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Anyone else feel this way about these two specific guns?

I own the 23 g4 and I love shooting it. I have shot the g19 like the 23 more. Recoil is abought the same and the 23 seems to have better accuracy.

I have a Gen 3 of each and prefer the G23 which I carry pretty extensively. The G17 is a range only gun for me. 9mm is not one of my favorite rounds to shoot, prefer the 45 and 40, but it is cheaper to shoot...

The G17 was my carry gun until I ended up with this G23. The G23 is much easier for me to conceal. I am also more accurate with it for some reason haha. So I am like you and the G17 is my new range gun. I will be getting the 9mm conversion barrel for my G23 eventually though. I like to be versatile

I prefer 9mm, but also own quite a few 40S&W pistols.

i started out with glock 40 cals, but have migrated to the 9mm. I still own and shoot my 40s but for competition and practice i prefer 9.
