    Which would you choose for EDC?

    Kahr CW40 or Glock 32 .357 Sig? Price is the same but I DO have about 500 rounds of .40 ammo and all the loading supplies for the .40...

    I would mainly be carrying IWB but occasionally, especially in summer, I would be carrying in my Maxpedition Fatboy.

    Get a .40 barrel for your 32. But I would just buy some new ammo and carry the 32 as is.

    In your specific case and circumstances, I'd say stick with the .40cal. (and I'm a Glock guy)

    Neither, the Glock-23...you already have the ammo.

    Both would make excellent weapons for concealed carry. If you like both of them about equally, I would go for the Kahr simply because you already have ammunition and dies to reload for it. Another thing to think about is that .40 is cheaper and easier to find than .357 Sig. Plus the Kahr is a single stack ;)

    The reason for the 32 is there is a used one on my dealer's shelf...but no reasonably priced .40 Glocks...funny, I'm NOT a Glock guy, always hated them...but I have kinda fallen for the 32...

    I like the 357Sig round, but there are some definite draw backs to that caliber. I wouldn't buy one simply because there is a used one for sale.

    Since you're already set up for .40 caliber, I'd find a Glock 23 or 27. In my opinion .357 Sig offers no advantage over .40 for defense, and the .357 ammo is expensive and hard to find. There may be a reason why that used .357 Sig Glock is priced low at your dealer's store.

    The Kahr is also a good gun, and offers the advantage of smaller size and slimmer profile over the Glock. It all depends on what you can conceal and how they shoot for you.

    Get the 32...pickup a .40 barrel for it and you're set.
    I was toying around W/ the idea of pickup a Sig 229 in .357 Sig....ended up W/ the G32. Expensive ammo...but fun on the range. Having another tool in the toolbox isn't a bad thing.
    Carried it Tuesday...it was the first time in a long while I actually forgot I had a gun on.

    I really am leaning towards getting the 32 and buying an aftermarket barrel. I'm interested in it just cuz it is there. I REALLY like that gun!

    +1 IMO, this is the way to go.

    I'd get the CW40. Better carry gun. Less weight and a lot more comfortable because of size.
