"C" models???

Just wanted everyones opinion again. Looking at the 23C. Only bad thing I have heard is the possibility of ruining your "night vision" after the first shot while firing at night. Since chances are better someone will try to break in at night, this has me a little concerned. At the range, during the day, it seem like a great idea.
Also, having never shot a C model, I was wondering how much of a difference it really makes. I currently own the plain old Model 23.
I guess one option is just getting the C slide and switching them out, but I wanted and excuse to get a new pistola.

I don't like compensated, or ported, guns of ANY kind.

I have not shot a "C" model Glock.

I few of my carry guns are C guns. The night vision thing is pure nonsense spread by people with no personal experience.

They shoot a lot flatter than standard guns but still have a significant push.

Ram Jet, why not?

Matt, what do you mean by flatter?

I have shot several big-bore revolvers and a few magnum rifles with ported barrels and they are twice as loud as the non-ported variety and I've had some of them spit crap back in my face. They're also more of a pain in the ass to clean. All this to eliminate a little recoil? I'd sooner have the recoil.

I think that what he means by flatter is that the gun will not lurch upward as much when using the compensated barrel.

Its true that comps and ports make a gun louder. How much depends on alot of thing slike powder, caliber, bullet weight, gun design etc etc.

By flatter I mean less muzzle flip. The gun actually stays flatter while shooting.

Maybe my style of shooting differs from yours, but I always wear hearing
protection, and so far I've had a hard time telling if the gun was louder 'cause
it was ported or not. I've taken some snap shots at Wile E. Coyote with no
hearing protection, and with full house 10mm Doubletap loads. It's loud,
but my .44 mag 4" S&W is much louder. As far as flash goes, I've done plenty
of night shoots and haven't ever been bothered, or even noticed it. (my current
ported gun is a 1911 carry-comp in 10mm). This one works very well, and
shoots like a warm 9mm. My G20c with Hyper-Ported Bar-Sto barrel wasn't
nearly effective...Of course, the comp on my Delta is atteched to the barrel
where the Glock 'c' relies on passing gas.... ops:

My department issues either Glock 22c's or 23c's. First of all they don't destroy night vision because of two reasons. First, a"C" model or not ,your night vision is gone as soon as you pull the trigger. That is why most military rifles have some sort of "Flash hider". The "C" models send the jet blast outside your normal vision and into the periphial ( sp?) part. Secondly, In a high stress situation you loss your periphial (again sp?) vision anyhow. I have owned both a model 23c and a regular 23. Now in .40SW the "C" makes a difference in felt recoil. Just my thoughts ......
