It really doesn't make a difference but...
I have a pair of Glock 19s. Like your 23s, one has a glossy slide while the other is dull. I find the dull slide easier to grip (malfunction clearing, etc.) and believe that this may be beneficial at crisis time with potentially sweaty/bloody hands. For this reason, I carry the dull one. OMO. YMMV.
That's interesting and something I never even considered. So I pulled them both out and it turns out I can get a more positive grip on the less glossy slide. I had my wife cycle through a few dummy rounds and she found the same. This is important because racking the slide isn't always the easiest thing for her to do. I think I'll carry the glossy one and leave the one for her that's easier for her to operate should, god forbid, she ever have to.

I don't care if it whines, yelps or yells at me for snoring, as long as it goes bang everytime.
Did your wife ever shoot the 23? I would make sure she can handle it before you make it her home defense gun.
When I took my wife shooting, she shot the 9mm much better and no flinching as with the 23.
Good luck, great weapon

Put them in a hat and the one you pick you carry, the other you leave at home.
Let your wife keep the glossy one. Women like shiny things. :)
First question, do you have a Sig? If so, put your Glocks in your safe and strap on your Sig. Otherwise, carry either Glock.
Alright, I said all that to incite the Glock loving crowd. Attack away!
