View Full Version : Finally got my Glock 22!

This is my first firearm, and I must say that it has been great fun at the range. My first time shooting it was yesterday, putting 349 rounds through it. Not once did I have an issue.

Anyway, I was very happy with the way the G22 felt in hand. The new rough texture finish is perfect. Not too aggressive, just enough for a good grip. Everything felt very smooth, and shot amazing out of the box. My choice was with the stock Glock fixed sights, as extensive shooting at the range with stock Glocks has made me a little biased. However the desire for upgrades has me interested in Night Sights.

Currently the G22 only has an extended slide and mag release- as well as a 3.5lbs connector.

Here's a photo a took not too long ago:

Nice pickup. I have a 17 in RTF2, the texture is great, especially when it is cold/dry and your hands seem like they slip off everything. The texture can get a little irritating after 300 or so rounds at a time towards the end of a range session, not sure if you noticed that too or not, but it hasn't been a significant problem at all.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Just put another 100 rounds through it tonight.

I have noticed that actually, but being that it's still all new to me- my hand will eventually adjust to it.

My first handgun as well. Ive been so back and forth on the thing, thinking I should have gotten something like a 23 or a 9mm glock that is fully supported, but in the end I always love it. It's a fun shoot. Enjoy it

Thanks guys! This was supposed to be an early birthday gift to myself. However I am now looking at a Ruger 10/22- something that I could shoot all day and not worry about ammo prices.

The shooting range I normally hang out at has a 10/22 Carbine for $229
