The reason I was looking at the G23 wasn't really 9mm vs. .40, I know shot placement is key. I just thought that I should own two guns in different calibers. And since I am going into law enforcement I should get used to the .40, that is all they use around here. So G23, Sig P239, HK P2000 were my first considerations before someone threw the .45 in the mix.

    Crud, didn't see this post before I posted the last one. But if I took 220 sandpaper to it would it negate the polymids effect?

    I feel like if you are going into law-enforcement and will be carrying a sidearm, try to match that in your carry gun. I do realize that your duty weapon will likely be full-size, but if it is a Glock you could proabably duplicate most of the characteristics with a compact model. The more you practice with a single gun/caliber the better you'll be with it.

    Good luck.

    Thank you for the input. I am going to see what most of the departments around here use. I think most use Sig 226 but the Muskegon City use Glock .40 now.

    Um, that is the idea.

    I guess what I was saying is that if the polymids were not comfortable to the point that I would have to sand them down then why buy an RTF model?

    40 ammo is higher, and recoil is slightly snappier.

    Some may not agree, but the power difference between the 3 major cals. is so small that, alone should not be the deciding factor.

    All handguns for self defense are underpowered. Accuracy and multiple shots are the answer, IMO. Shot to shot time with 9 is slightly faster.
    I agree, but with a caveat.

    The caveat being, if I can't have one of my preferred 9mm loads then I want a .40 S&W. I do agree with what Evan Marshall says, "It's hard to find a bad bullet in .40."

    There is more "margin for error" with a .40 S&W round in regards to bullet selection, weight and brand. They all seem to be respectable in regards to how they work. That can't be said about the 9mm IME. There are a few select loads that work very well in 9mm, but if I can't get them I would prefer to move to a larger caliber than not.

    Also, the .40 S&W or the respective .357 Sig gives you more versatility over the respective 9mm handgun of the same size. Once you own a 9mm, all you have is a 9mm. With a .40 S&W or the .357 Sig you can generally shoot three calibers out of one gun. You may need to change some parts, but that's generally pretty easy to do.

    Just my $0.02.

    i have a G23 and a G36. those are actually the only two glocks i own. im all about both of them.

    the G23 seems to be more universally loved by its adopters and i suppose i can understand why.

    its easier to shoot and its got just over twice the capacity.

    still i do love my G36.

    Well, everyone is different. But....I have the G19 and G23 (now)....so.....I carry the G19, and I carry the G23. I've transitioned to the G23 this week actually after extensive range time with my G23 since I traded for it a little over a month ago. Know what? I'm more accurate with my G23 than the G19, and since I've been a fan of the 40 S&W caliber for a while, I actually think the cartridge is more inherently accurate and even more so out of a Glock!

    Which ever glock you choose you won't be disapointed. They are dependable weapons!
