So I had a moment of weakness...

Test fire date of 3/21/13, UNU prefix. I did notice the 'cheaper' foam that others in General Glocking have posted about, but the G20 itself is schweeeeet.

So anyways, on with the (somewhat crappy cell phone) pics:

The 10 Ring

The 10 Ring

All in all, I'll probably get a Gen4 when I see one, but I think this will do for now.

Very happy, indeed.

I almost left out the best part:

I went into the shop, and there sat the owner - We BS'ed for a while, and I talked to him about the 10 rounders being kind of a bummer, among other things (also drooled over an M1A SOCOM he just got in)... When it was time to cash out, I said to him "$575 cash otd, right"?

He looked at me and said "You've been a good customer for a long time. Make it $550 out the door and we're good."

I smiled all the way home. Truly a good day.

I could see how a slimmer grip would be useful. I just thought it was more.

I wasn't very clear in my comment. Mine is an SF so it is a little slimmer. It's a handful and when your hand gets a little sweaty it doesn't have much grip. The Talon grip makes it feel really good in the hand.

Get it. I just ordered a G20SF OD green from Glockmeister. One more for the collection.

I see a G20 full-size and I'm thinking it may be a better fit for me. I have the 29SF and my trigger finger gets pretty hammered, in part because there's no way to shoot the gun without wrapping a bit of trigger finger around the trigger. I think the full-size may allow better trigger finger placement--uh, by 'better' I mean less finger extending past the trigger.

I always thought I had small hands with short, stubby sausage fingers. While frequenting an international guitar-centric music site, we took a poll. We specified how to measure the hand, and had all the members (about 15,000 I think, at the time) measure their hands. I did the data analysis and my hands were dead-nuts average among that group. And I can tell you, I have short sausage fingers.

I don't know what a full size looks or feels like or if it's really that much fatter. But, my thought is that, with the awesome, unimaginable power that is the 10mm, a little extra 'fat' in the grip would be very nice.

Well there is the matter of having control over the gun and some of us prefer to have "The gun IN our hand" as opposed to having "our hand ON the gun".

Of course, since it has the lanyard hole you could probably use that and some 550 cord to lash your hand to the gun before unleashing a 10mm round.

I wear a L/XL glove and I think the grip is too big on the non-SF model. I'll probably try to trade my Gen3 for either a Gen4 or a RIA.

My wife is a small lady and she can shoot my G20 FS 3rd Gen and smile all the way to the kill zone with full house ammo.

Whats up with the 10 round mags? I would not buy it if your in a free state. But man-o-man a full house 10mm is sweet!

Congats! Your new G20 will be your weapon of choice real soon. The King of Glocks,,,, IS THE BEST GLOCK!
