I have a love hate relationship with glock. I generally carry a G23 and I compete with a G35. While the larger framed glocks are slightly more ergonomic in my hands, the compact glocks feel like I am holding on to a cranky crab. My fingers don't fit in the finger grooves, the trigger slaps my pointer finger, and if I shoot it for a while my middle finger gets a huge blister on my first knuckle. After last speed steel match using my G35 I also got the dreaded glock knuckle but it was the first time it had happened so I am going to attribute that to having not shot it in a couple months. Why keep it you ask? If the thing feels like a piranha is attacking your hand every time you shoot the thing sell it to someone who does not have those problems. Here is why I love the G23: Light weight Small stature 13+1 Reliable Low bore Axis Fast shooting Cheap Mags Huge holster variety Can shoot 9mm, .357sig, .22, and .40 all with a simple swap Huge after market support In addition, the G23 is my carry gun. I practice with it, but if I ever need to use it I will most likely shoot a few rounds and that will be the end of it. I do love The little 23, but after shooting it today, there are still some things I need to do to make it work for me. The trigger slap is still there, and not on my G35 whatsoever. I tried to shave down the trigger lock thing and sand off a bit of the trigger serrations, but I think my next move is to buy a G22 trigger and swap it out. Here is what she started life as. (web photo) The first thing I had to do was to rid the gun of those horrible finger grooves. In my hands they sat right in the middle of each finger; did not work. After sanding them off I wanted to make the finish look uniform so I went ahead and stippled it. I am not sure I am I huge fan of the stippling. At first it was very rough and I ended up coming back in with some sand paper to smooth it out. it feels nice but it fills up with gunk and when it is in the IWB holster it rubs the he!! out of my side. Now, it feels better not having those finer grooves on it, but I still can barely get my entire pinky on the grip, I still get glock knuckle, and trigger slap. After some inspiration from Boresight Customs I decided, what the he!!, lets try to make it a bit smoother on the underside of the trigger guard. I ended up taking a lot of material and gave it a pretty severe undercut. I must say that this was by far the BEST modification to date. The gun feels entirely better and I can get a much better grip. I am still trying to figure out I can make the sanded area match the other rest of the gun's finish. Is it just me, or do any of you also have these same issues? Do you find the compact glocks to be comfortable after extended shooting? I am tempted to just buy a PPQ and never have to worry about comfort, but I would gain some weight, gain some girth, and not gain any capacity or ability to easily change calibers.
