I'm getting ready to buy a G23, but am not really sure if I need gen 4 or not. I do know that the gen 3 fit my hand well and I shot it well enough... and as we all know it's a very reliable pistol. It is going to be my EDC unless it's hot as heck, then I will use a CW40. I will most likely put 500 rounds a year down the pipe for practice, otherwise it will just be by my side. My question (to those that have shot both gen's).... Is it really worth it to buy the gen 4 or is it mostly for bragging rights? I know the differences, I'm just not sure the differences will help me.... whaddya think?
