You either get it or you don't. I loved mine so much I had my vanity LP made and enjoyed it secretly for years until my fever broke and my love has waned. I still love the concept and the weapon, there is nothing else like a Mark 23.
    That is awesome --- those not in the know probably think that is your name--- or a Bible verse!!!

    It is, and it is........
    when you go to the DMV and apply they ask "what does this mean" I said my name is Mark and I like the number 23. I figured they might
    deny my application if I said it was the baddest pistol of all time!!!

    Or even an OWB?

    At least the .50 AE guns have a ton of energy compared to the Mark 23.

    Honestly, I’d take a Glock 20 all day every day and twice on Sunday.

    Glocks are good as "throw downs".

    I carry a Glock most every day. Not a 20, though.




    But I like the VP, too.

    Redpillregret,

    At least you admit your mistakes

    The first thing is that you obviously DON'T HUNT. You don't even KNOW about or understand what it takes to go far afield to harvest large wild game. There are probably a lot other things you don't know about either.

    My nephew and BIL recently took a friend of theirs on his first elk hunt. He got a MASSIVE buck with a 12 point rack. And either my nephew or his dad WERE carrying the S&W 500 with them. WHY? Because the S&W 500 is a BEAR stopper.

    Just like the MARK 23 is a man stopper. Regardless of what other folks say, at the time, the MARK 23 was exactly what the DOD requested.

    Has time moved on and perhaps a smaller lighter pistol might be a better choice. I understand that the USP 45 compact tactical or the HK 45 compact tactical is becoming the favored pistol for spec op forces these day.

    Hey, time moves on. Things get better. No one is riding horses these days. Well, not to get to work or go to the store.

    There are better choices for transportation, just like there are NOW better choices for spec for warriors to carry.

    But as an FRACKING OLD GUY, I know for fact that my 1970 deuce is a great truck. Is it the 'NEW HOTNESS'?

    No it's not. DOES IT STILL WORK AS WELL AS IT WAS DESIGNED?
