    Glock 19 or Glock 32

    I am considering adding to my Glock family. I currently have a model 23, 27, and 29. I am trying to decide between a 9mm model 19 or a .357 model 32. I already have 3 other pistols in 9mm (S&W 6906, Kahr PM9 & Kahr CW9), but the model 32 would be a new caliber for me. I do have two .357 S&W revolvers (model 386PD & model 620) but the .357 Sig cartridge is intriguing. Wouldn't my magazines for the 23 also work in the 32 since that .357 cartridge is a necked down .40?

    Any input/past experience would be appreciated!

    I'm not a Glock owner but I think that you can just buy a different barrel for your 23 to make it shoot .357. I think that you can get a 9mm barrel as well. It would certainly be the most economical choice.

    I can't speak about the 32, but the 19 is a solid gun. It feels great in my hand and shoots like a dream.

    Another 9mm (dependability proven) gun saves on stocking new ammo. OMO

    Stay armed...limit the ammo choices...stay safe!

    I LOVE my G32. I can get around 1400fps with a 147gr Gold Dot. That's an amazing power factor of 205. No .40 or 9mm+P+ will reach that status. With the G32 you can drop in a 9mm conversion barrel and a couple of G19 mags for cheap shooting. I've long been a .45 fan, but the .357 Sig load amazes me!

    No need to buy a G32. All you need to do is buy a G32 (.357sig) barrel, it'll drop right into your G23.

    Alternatively, you can buy a G29 .357 conversion barrel to drop into your G29 so you can shoot .357 rounds.

    I chose the 32 only because I already have a 19.

    Me too. Otherwise I would have gone with the conversion I discussed above.

    Why not get a G33 barrel for your G27?
    For about $120.00 you can have a 357sig.
    I love my G33 ,its my EDC.

    Just buy the .357 barrel conversion for your current Glock, as stated in an earlier post. No need for a new gun

    9mm

    just for the purpose of ammo availability... both 9mm and 357 sig are good sd rounds but 357 is harder to find.

    Can't vote since I would go for the G19, and I already have one. I'm going to say that sticking with the big three counts for me. (hey! that rhymes!). Biggest factor for me is sticking with the ammo I have and what I have. Not really interested in starting on another caliber even though it might be tempting. Let's just give a 'for-instance'....if i got a Glock in a caliber I didn't currently stock, I'd pretty much double the price of the pistol to allow for storage, range ammo, and SD ammo costs up front. On the good side, the Glock models with the exception of the 45's and the 10mm's will all fit in similar holsters one way or the other.

    Good choice. That would be the most bang for your buck. IMO everyone who owns Glocks should have a 19 in the stable.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    I would buy some Glock 32 Magazines for your 23 too.

    The 23 Mags work, but I've noticed a tendancy for the last round to "hang up" if you're shooting 357 Sig out of a 40 S&W mag. I would also get the Glock 19. It's the one Glock every Glock owner should have, IMHO.
