While focusing my practice for competition with my G34 I hadn't shot my G23 carry piece for a couple of months. Then when I pulled it out I was horrified to find how bad I was doing with it. I was just catching the side of the paper.This shouldn't be the case with a weapon I trust my life with. Personally I believe that we should be more familiar with our carry piece than anything else we shoot. I'm shooting the G23 weekly now and I feel confidant with it. How often do you shoot your carry piece? Could you get the job done if you had to put it to work? If you haven't shot it you really don't know.
