I got this Glock 23 nearly the day it came out back in the 80s. It seemed like an ideal carry gun. I loved the ballistics of the then-new .40 S&W. It conceals really well and has a potent 13+1 capacity. When it came time to buy I was debating between it and a Colt Commander and as much as I like .45s (which I also carry from time to time) I can't say I made a mistake. (For a full account of my history with this 23, go to Glock 23: My longtime pal gets a trigger job--finally).
I got this Glock 23 nearly the day it came out back in the 80s and it has stood the test of time.
