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.

Either one. I carry my 2nd gen 23 that is 100 percent reliable.
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
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

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!
