Sorry, thought you were from Maryland, MD passed a new gun law limiting the number of rounds a magazine could hold, max is 10 rounds.

I have a two g23 and a g22 as well as some other Glocks in 9mm. I carry my Glock 22 daily during winter and a Glock 23 daily during summer.
I have ran both versions in handgun classes and never had a problem running factory and hand loads. My g23 had over 10,000 rounds through it before I cleaned it(use frog lube). Can't go wrong with the 23.
If I was you I would get a Ruger in .22 that's their bread and butter. A Ruger in .22 is like a diesel truck where as the Berreta is a Daewoo lol

Not too crazy about the angle of the grip though. Gone run down the street tomorrow and see if they have one I can hold.
I'll second the Ruger
The Mark II is an outstanding .22 Pistol. Durable, accurate, reliable and relatively inexpensive. I'd put it up against any .22 pistol including the S&W Model 41, the Browning Buckmark and a most anything else. I've owned several and they shoot better than most people can shoot them. They're also very simple and almost never break. If you do have a problem (like you drive your Jeep over it), parts are plentiful.

JBTJ - You're the first I've seen complain about the Neos (other then appearance).

I know everyone recommends the Ruger Mark series but the look of it really turns me off. Reminds me of a Nazi Luger. My buddy just ordered a Ruger SR22 which looks pretty sweet but I'd like to get something different since we'll be shooting together slot and we want a bit of a selection. As it is, he already has a Glock 22 which s basically identical to the G23 I'm getting.

What do you guys think of the S&W M&P 22?

S&W M&P 22 is a solid little pistol. I shot one a couple times at my buddies place. Mags are kinda hard to find, at least around me. They will shoot just about any .22 ammo you put in it.

Being I work on guns, for a living, well now retired, modifying and building I do know a little bit about them. Top of the line would be the Ruger 22/45 or MKIII with a bull barrel. All other .22's can't hold a candle to them. I have shot many .22's over the years and this comes from my experiences. Same goes for the S&W M&P 22. If you won't enjoy shooting dime size groups at 25 yards and prefer to shoot 2" groups at 25 yards then be sure to buy something other than a Ruger.

G23 was my first pistol, carried it on duty and put tens of thousands of rounds through it. When the dept began issuing 35's i switched and carried the g23 to and from work and the 35 on duty. So it still saw 500 or so a month. My last qual ever i had my first failure. The takedown spring broke sometime during the qual. I didnt know it had broken until after the course when i was going back on the street and was switching pistols. Framecame out, slide stayed in the holster. Gun still ran 100% until you dropped the striker on a ded chamber, then the slide would slide off. A year or so later i finally broke down and spent the $.25 on a new spring to fix it

Glocks arent my favorite for precision, far from it for hunting. But for duty and durability theyre my go-to. I keep all sorts of stuff secured, but i still have glocks close at hand at night.

I carried an expert rating my last 3-4 years, but never shot expert with both pistols the same day. It was always 1 or the other. My last qual was my last chance to do so, went 100 with the 35, 98 with the 23. I know i pulled a round but blame it on the spring breaking so i sleep better at night

JB - Thanks again for the input. How do you feel about the SR22 my buddy just ordered?

Also, I was looking at the he 22/45 over the weekend and thought it would be a good practice pistol since it is so similar to the 1911 (which I would like eventually).

I'm sorry I can not give you any input on the SR22 as I have never shot one nor do I know of anyone who has. But, for the design I would say it's not as good, as it appears to have a floating barrel. What to look for is the barrel to be screwed into the frame and basically non removable with out tools. This is the key to accuracy.

I have had a gen 2 glock 23 for about 7 years now it is a great gun. It is about the perfect size for a do everything gun. I use it as my carry gun in the winter in a kingtuck holster and a 5.11 belt with good results. The only mod I have is a SS recoil spring/rod I have never had a malfunction that was not the ammos fault out of a estimated 6-10k plus rounds. I don’t think the gun will let you down.

I also have a sr-22 is is a great gun we practice with it a fair amount (did before the obaomy scare) and it shoots very well. sometimes after 2-300 rounds you have to clean the feed ramp so bring some q-tips to the range thats its only flaw but not a bad one also it shoots bulk federal and blazer with no issues but stay away from winchester x-pert that stuff sucks hard.

I really appreciate the feedback guys. I'm new the sport and welcome any info and advice you all have to offer. (So please keep it coming)

The G23 is a done deal. Gonna wire up a Generator for his house in exchange for the Glock.

On the .22, I think I'm leaning towards the Ruger 22/45 Target. Lists for around $350-$400 I think.

I don't think you will regret getting it. I really like my G23.

I don't think so either. I've been researching and there aren't many complaints about it. Seems like a very reliable gun. I can't wait to get it to the range now. As far as a .22 goes, I think I'm gonna take a ride to see a buddy who works at a gun shop and see if they have something decent used. I'm also ordering a S&W M&P 15-22 just for fun. ;-)
