It's not the prettiest gun, but it is one of the most dependable. Shoots flawlessly and is built to last.

Bought this gun after buying my wife a Glock 23 and liking it so much, this gun has a longer grip than the 23 which is a lot better for me. Didn’t know how I would like it since it didn’t have an external safety but I do and I know when I point it’s ready to shoot.

"My duty weapon"
Through 3 different agency's, my duty weapon has been the Glock 22. I am not a fan of the 40 S&W round, but Department's require it. It has plenty of stopping power and magazine capacity for duty use.
The 40 S&W is too snappy for my tastes. Ammo is way over priced due to its popularity. With that said, more officers carry it over anything else. Small framed people can easily handle the weapon and the recoil. I just prefer a 10mm or 45.
As for the gun its self, not a bad thing can be said. 15 plus 1 capacity, small frame, very ergonomic and reliable as all get out. If you carry a Glock 23 or a Glock 27, the full size Glock 22 mags will interchange for use. My back up is a Glock 27. The ability to use my duty mags in case of a weapon failure is very comforting. They will stick out and look different, but its 100% functional.
Law Enforcement agency's around the country carry the Glock 22 for a reason. Reliability, stopping power and comfort are just a few of the reasons. Cops carry what works. This gun is a tank!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave60190 Not sexy...but my go-to gun
I own four handguns including a Colt .22 1911, a Ruger .45 1911 and a Beretta .9mm. All three are by far better looking guns. Which one do I like best? My "ugly" Glock 22! It is by far the best of the four...easiest to shoot, clean and handle. I keep it as my preferred personal defense weapon and my favorite target shooter. If your only going to invest in one gun, make it a Glock.

The one in the picture is a gen 2. a gen 3 has finger grips and an accessory rail for a laser or tactical light. Steer clear of the new gen 4 till they can solve the issue with the recoil spring. Glock just started a voluntary recall on gen 4's due to spring malfunctions.
