Glock 19 vs Glock 23. This comparison experience is one of our most popular offerings. The compact frame Glock 19 chambered in 9 x 19mm vs the compact frame Glock 23 chambered for .40 Smith & Wesson. Customers are often undecided about which caliber to choose from for their personal defense weapon and/or carry gun.


To assist the decision making the Glock Experience event is run as follows: Approximately an hour in duration a certified firearms instructor will first take you through the essential details of both the Glock 19 and 23 semi-automatic pistols. Covering all aspects of safety and basic maintenance requirements. Both calibers will be discussed and the pros and cons debated as well as an updated review of current and newly released loads for both calibers. Following this initial briefing, the customer will fire a total of 50 simulated laser shots on a target using a Glock laser training pistol. This pistol has a similar weight and trigger pull to the actual pistol they will live fire. During this initial training exercise, your instructor will discuss grip, sighting, and trigger pull techniques with you.

The customer will then progress to live fire. On two targets – which the customer may keep –

5 rounds at target 1 Glock 19 – 5 rounds at target 2 Glock 23

20 rounds at target 1 Glock 19 – 20 rounds at target 2 Glock 23

Debrief and conclude the session.
