Started a new job and have to purchase a duty weapon. No restrictions on what it has to be other than full size... That's were I'm stuck, looking on thoughts and opinions....
I prefer the gen 3 .357-.40.... Here's why. I felt the g21 had a fat grip compared to the g22 IMO.plus with the .40 you get the versatility of 3 calibers .40,.357,9mm.although I would not use the 9mm in self defense for this application cause I've experienced a few jams with my g23 in 9mm.(none in .40). The reason I would go with the gen3 over the 4 is I've heard people talk about issues with jamming and breaking recoil springs.where the gen3 has already proven its reliability.but this is my opinion take it for what it isJHC said:I would probably choose a recent production Gen 4 G22. The terminal ballistic performance with good loads is very close but more ammunition is never too much. It's a close call between that an a Gen 4 G21 or my RTF2 Gen 3 G21SF.
