G22 is a great weapon. I carry one on duty. Off duty, however, I carry a G19 only because it's easier to conceal. The G22 can be concealed, but it takes a little more effort.

I work for myself, so I can dress how I want to. In Georgia, I can print. I don't try to, but I don't really get freaked out if I print a little. I've never held one until today. Not much bigger than the 23. I think I'll get one or two.

I CCW a G20 with +2 mag ext. I am a lean 160, and have no problem with concealment, or EDC.

With the right holster it can be done. Not a bad choice IMO.

Sure they do. Leg and foot shots are rarely fatal.
Here's an amusing video: One shot, two Feds hit

ETA - I bought a Glock 22, a police trade-in, for $320. Nothing wrong with it, but I don't shoot it with lead bullets. (I only shoot 155/165 –– not 180.) And remember the Four Rules of Glock Safety:

1. Keep your finger off the trigger.
2. Keep your finger off the goddamn trigger.
3. Keep your goddamn finger off the trigger.
4. Keep your goddamn finger off the goddamn trigger.

I CCW a G22 most times, and a 17, 19, or even a G21 (when I go down to houston or some other 3rd world city) the rest of the time.

You have to dress around the gun, I use button-down shirts with a good undershirt and leave the bottom button undone for easiest access to my strong side. I have found it much easier to cant the pistol up along my side rather than out the back.

I bought a G19 for EveryDay Carry, and I kinda regret it. I have since experimented with the G17 and found I could conceal it just as well as the 19, but it's a highly individual decision.

I would recommend going to a gun shop and trying both models in various holsters to see what works for you.

ETA: I'm not a .40 guy either. Ammo costs more, higher recoil, lower capacity, arguable difference in effectiveness, shorter service life on guns...

Ensure that you check the recall S/N ranges and get the recall taken care of if applicable. I have personally seen the mode of failure at a IPSC match and it rendered the gun completely inoperable. This was a federal employee who was shooting his duty gun, which the dept. had not bothered to check for recall.

If you join the GSSF you can buy a new Glock for LE prices. The GSSF costs $35 for a new membership, but you can easily save $200 off the cost of a gun. It makes those used guns look meh...

Thanks for the tip on the Serial numbers and the recall. I checked the GSSF site and I don't see anything about discounted glocks on there.

You can tote that G22 to a GSSF match and they'll check and update it if needed. I've carried a 22 or 23 daily for years. The 22 is a good carry gun as is. I'd get the bladetech iwb.

I'd personally not be worried about a recall if it works.

i have a 17 and love it but was thinking about the 19 for EDC

why dont you like the 19 for EDC? it should be easier to conceal than the 17, a little less capacity but easier to CCW I would have thought being shorter, etc...
