    2 great choices, I carry the 22 everyday for work and I've got 23s that I love for concealed carry.

    Yes true web....but figured I would get 2 rather than 1. Plan I getting multiple calibers. I live in the northern co area currently for school but grew up just outside of Denver. And yes I'm loving the 22 and the 23 seems to be a good sized CCW for me.

    Nice, I'm down in Denver now, getting ready to go get me a G34 Gen4 for comp shooting. The 22 and 23 are great guns. My buddy that does work with DoD uses that exact combo.

    Very cool I wouldn't mind getting a 34 in the future for some comp stuff. I just purchased a production belt setup for the 22 and plan on trying it here soon.I don't reload yet so I know buying ammo for matches is going to be very very expensive. Gotta get down to the gun shop I like down there to get so tactical stuff. Have you found any good ranges in Denver?

    Ya, http://www.blucoreshootingcenter.com/ . Best range in denver so far. And by Denver I mean Lakewood. No I don't work there but I am a member. $300 gets you unlimited range use and the ability to reserve a lane. No range fees after you pay the membership which I've not seen any range do yet. As far as reloading goes, DONT with the .40. Everything I've read said especially Glock to Glock reloads of .40 is bad news. To be honest, Walmart has the Federal Champion ammo cheap as hell. For me I drop $20 for 100rnds of 9mm. It's more for the .40 but not bad compared to all the looking I've done.

    Now anyone with experience on the .40 reloads feel free to correct me please, I'm just going off what I remember from reading here.

    Okay I will have to check that range out. Sounds like a really good deal. And ya I got a box of federal .40 for $27 which seemed like a pretty good price

    Ryan, welcome to the forum. The 40 is simply nasty (in a wonderful way)!

    I've been using the Remington UMC in my 21. Nice and cheap, and even though Webphisher claims it's so dirty he gets a case of black-lung every time we go to the range, I like it, and it's plenty accurate. You might try a box to see if you like it (~$100 for 250 in 45 ACP).

    Again, welcome and enjoy your new Glocks!

    Ya I will have to give it a try. They are always out at Walmart and big5 is too darn expensive so I just have to make a trip to the gun shop ( closest one 35 miles away) and see if they have any. They usually only carry LE type ammo (rangers, gold dots, hornady).
