    very nice, carry it well and be safe!
    My reasons to OC
    1. to raise awareness of the legality of open carry in Michigan
    2. To raise awareness that good people carry guns
    3. A deterrent to people so that I won't be targeted
    4. Because it's more comfortable than CC in most situations
    5. Because I can and want to
    6. Because it's perfectly legal
    7. Self defense

    Yep I got a new one recently too, it was.... another G17. But this one has a green frame. What can I say, I like magazine compatibility.

    I wants me an fnp-40

    Reason for 40 and not 45 is I have over 1000 rounds of .40 and no .45

    I hate having a million different caliber guns.

    A fine choice. I know a character that went by the handle of glock9mmoldstyle. He carried/carries multiple glocks & a folding sub2000 9mm carbine. Concealed/discreet carry = G26's small with lots of firepower - with a simple mag add-on +3 = 13+1. G17 with plus 2 mag add-ons gives you 19+1 and you can find 33 rounders that work in all 9mm glock pistols / and their carbines. Choice is good, and Glock gives you lots of options. They are the LEGO's of the pistol world.

    I think that glock9mmoldstyle guy is a mythical beast...like unicorns and the Easter Bunny.
    I agree on the versatility of Glock. It's been my choice for quite a while but I have switched to my P64 for OC at work; a bit more discrete than my G23.

    Funny - I went the other way and picked up a G21-C just before they stopped making them. 13+1 or with the +2 add-ons 15+1 in 45acp Oh & the compensator works great! Not only does it nearly eliminate muzzle flip, it works great for roasting marshmellows too. . Yeah that G9OS guy is an urban legend, like panthers roaming around in the milford, wixom area. Never happened...

    The only thing I could imagine hating on is selling your Glock 22. It was my first gun as well and I don't think I could ever get rid of it. [Slight sarcasm in this]

    ETA: Still a great gun you're switching it out for and I like the picture.

    My glock 22 will be missed, but I had to make a choice... Unfortunatly I'll have plenty more Glock down the line
