Glock 23 for me!! I am still amazed that the 9mm is so far ahead. I mean if it has to be a 9mm, the 19 is the perfect size. I'm tempted to ask all those who tote a 9mm, "don't you guys care about, you know, stopping power, not having to shoot a guy 16 times to get them down, etc" but I won't. (although right now I do have tongue planted firmly in cheek). Everything you read or hear has the 9mm as passe', that the "wondernine" is gone. It's hard to accept the fact that the majority of Glock Talkers......nevermind. They are obviously the silent majority cuz you never hear from them. I hear about the .40, the .357, the 10mm, the .45 ACP, the 45 GAP. Maybe I should try a Glock 9mm, or better yet, find a way to get me one of those Glock 28's in .380, then we'll see who has the quicker follow-up shots and less recoil.

(Please don't take me serious, just kidding around. I was hoping my 23 would be the winner. I was never really a good sport about losing.)

I know how you feel. I'm the same. Want proof? Go to:

http://glocktalk.com/showthread.php?threadid=525601

I am "americandude". Yesterday I was "student7777777". I changed because I don't like the sound of "student7777777". I posted that thread because I wanted to get everyones opinion on the G23. So far, the G23 seems to be a good all-around gun.

Voted for the 17.

Though it seems like the 19 is the most popular. Makes me want to get mine back!

to all the 9mm bashers. We are strong!

I couldn't decide between a 9mm or a .45. Then I discovered .40
"Awsome" says I!

Also, for hikers, a 9mm is to small. If you want protection from cougar, etc. Get .40 or larger. 9mm has taken down even bear. But it is not something you would want to try.


Americandude, I read the thread you sent me to. It was in interesting question. I see that what you posted above was a summary of all the replies that you got. You truly are a good student, your other name fit. LOL, j/k. I'm not laughing at you I'm with you cuz that's the way my mind works too. Keep asking, that's the only way you learn. Although this does remind me of that scene from Jackie Brown where Robert DeNiro and Brigette Fonda are talking about how much Samuel L. Jackson's character knows about firearms;

(They're watching a video called "Chicks Who Love Guns" which shows a bunch of babes in bikini shooting full auto AK's, Augs, Tec-9, etc)

Melanie: Boring isn't it?
Louis: Eh, I could sit through it once.
Melanie: He thinks he's "Joe Gun" now.
Louis: Well, he seems to know a lot.
Melanie: He's just repeating ***** he heard. He's no more of a gun expert than I am.

That's what it reminds me of. You're repeating stuff you heard, but you're still a newbie.

You're cool man, love your choice of the G23. It would be good cougar medicine, but it wouldn't be my first choice on bear. The thing is, I like balance. The G23 represents balance to me. Bigger than a 26/27 smaller than the 22 and much smaller than the 20/21, size is just right. Small enough to conceal, but large enough to be controlled and maintain its shootability. Also the .40 has proven to be a good killer (why mince words). A mere 1mm larger in diamenter than its "Nazi" counterpart, the 9mm Luger, it's ability to handle bullets ranging from 135 up to 200 grains, makes this, IMHO, a very effecient cartridge. It has a synergy that's hard to explain. I'd go so far as to say it is like the .30-06 of the pistol world. (BTW, the 06' brought down its fair share of Nazis! See the connection?) <insert America the Beautiful>. Also, is firepower. 14 rounds total, 2 less than the Wehrmacht offering, and 4 more than the all American .45 ACP in the nearest G23 equivalent the G30. There are so many reasons for choosing the G23 over the G19, but I won't go into them all. All I know is I would rather use a cartridge developed by S&W, than one used in a Luger. A Luger, a gun used to shoot at our boys in two world wars. A Luger was something you brought home as a war trophy, not something you stuff in your GLOCK! I don't know about you, but I say "Make Mine An American Caliber" "The G23 is for me!"

Thank you. Not everyone is thinking the same thing about me:

http://glocktalk.com/showthread.php?threadid=526124

I guess they may be right about the post being stupid. But just the same, I'm learning from it. I have to make mistakes, something for me to learn from.
Nice to have someone stick up for me.


It's a good all-around gun isn't it.
I love the balance you speak of!
And firepower...check this out...he he he:

The G24 because it can launch the bullets with ammo-manufacturer velocity. And I also love longslides.

Favorite Glock? Well, the 27 for carry, the 35 for IPSC Limited, the 17 for GSSF and IPSC Production... Overall favorite has got to be the work-horse Glock 17.

Why don't we go around on GT and brag about our 9mm???? We are confident in our abilities to end hostilities quickly and do not seek validation from others in our choice of caliber. The 9mm will work and work well.

the 9mm is passe'??? ROTFLMAO! You mean the the most popular cartridge in the U.S. and the world? Please refer to Websters dictionary for the meaning of passe'

Also, not trying to flame with you. Glad you like the American made and conceived .40S&W caliber in your Austrian made Glock.
