Hello everyone Of course i'm the new guy. I've been lurking around this site for weeks now. Reading diffrent post and threads. I needed information on, to help with my weapon selection. I have been wanting to buy a Gen4 G23, or a Sig P229. I really want a brand new gun. I'm leaning towards the Glock because I really don't want to spend the extra coin on the Sig. The only issue with that is, every gun store I've been going to is trying to sell me on a Gen3 G23 not a Gen4. Now none of these stores even have a Gen4 in stock. All will have to be ordered. I was told the gun has issues with the guide rod, which I already knew thanks to this site and Youtube. Ive been told that they are hearing that the frame has cracked on people. Haven't heard that at all until I walked in the store. I've also been told that they tear up Police uniforms and holsters. I'm like, ***, where is all this coming from? Good friend of mine is telling me to just grab a Gen3. Now, I'll be honest I don't have a good reason for not wanting a Gen3 except me wanting the latest and the greatest. (Gen4) I'm just being honest. So, what do I do? Get Gen3 or Gen4 or say screw it and go for the Sig. I know this is a Glock forum but you guys seem honest in your other post so that's why I'm asking. Hopefully someone helps me out and gives me some good information. Thanks in advance Pun!
