    Pretty open-ended question...what's the purpose for the new piece?

    And, what do you mean by "....not the loaded I wanted..."? You consider a Glock 23 "loaded"? Help me out here.

    You can't expect much useful advice without knowing how you'll be using the new pistol.....

    I can attest to the accuracy of the G23! I love mine. I will never get rid of it.

    And, my son has decided after firing mine that he wants a G23 as his first carry gun. (He is 16 years old now.) My 12 year old daughter also likes it but right now, the grip doesn't fit her hand very well. Give her a couple of years and it will be just fine. She's as good a shot as her Mom.

    I would whole heartedly recommend the G23.

    1911...Or...G...

    Either works...I carry either my Kimber Ultra or a G-36...both have great grip feel, accuracy, great concealment...either is a winner for me!

    You obviously like the .45acp, have you considered the G30?

    All purpose gun

    I won't disagree with the Glock 23 as an all purpose gun for $600 or less. I have one and it is an excellent choice.

    Since you are accustomed to a steel 1911, however, I will assume that you are not deterred by a little weight in your gun, and you might like another possibility besides the Glock 23. I would recommend you also look at the Sig P229 in .40 caliber - possibly a used one if you must stay under the $600 mark.

    I bought a used Sig P229 about 7 years ago for $500, and it is one of the best guns I have ever owned. It is absolutely reliable, holds 12 + 1 rounds of .40, and has a better trigger feel and ergonomics than my Glock 23. It is no accident that so many Federal agencies use the Sig P229 as their standard handgun.

    Don't rush a gun purchase you will only regret it. Gun show prices can be easily beaten most of the time. The Glock 23 is a great gun. It has been my primary gun for 11 years and has never let me down. CDNN had some great deals on them. I would check them out. But slow down and make sure you buy the right gun for you.

    Forget about the gun show; browse the internet for reputable online dealers, then receive your firearm at your nearest FFL holding business (i.e. a pawnshop) - you'll make substantial savings that way. Do a search on the subject and you'll find lots of dealers online.
