Welcome, Rene, and congratulations in advance on your Glock purchase!
In purely functional terms, the Glock is an exceedingly well designed pistol. You will only need to know if it is comfortable in your hand, and that is more a function of your hand geometry than anything else. Remember: you can never accurately shoot a gun you cannot comfortably hold. Given that it is comfortable for you, you will find that it is a fantastic piece of engineering...something worthy of betting your life on! Again, Welcome!
thank you happysniper1! yes! i will be gettin my G22! only thng is i dont know weather to get gen3 or gen4! iv heard that the gen 4 has many problems. and for fifty to sixty gollars more i dont think so! the problems bein like extractor and guide rod spring assembly and what not. i think im goin for gen3!
Myself, I love the 3Gen. Had a chance to carry a buudy's 4Gen RTF for a day, but by noon my skin burned from the textured grip rubbing on it. Summertime so I did not have another shirt on underneath. I do love the positive feel of the RTF, but it is (sadly) not for me. Maybe if I lost a coupla pounds?
Many on the members on this forum will recommend renting the weapon being considered if your range offers rentals. Then you can get the feel for the different grips in relation to your hands. Me personally, the Glock 23 is that perfect fit "for me".
Good luck on your choice and keep us posted on what you decide.
