    Glock 19, 32, 23 You have all. Which would you carry

    You have three pistols: Glock 19, 23, 32
    16 rounds 9mm HST
    14 rounds 357 Sig HST
    14 rounds 40 S&W HST

    Same sights.
    The pistols are equally accurate.
    Ammo cost, local ammo availability, nor wear & tear on pistol are factors in this choice.
    If there is a zombie apocalypse or societal breakdown while carrying you will not be able to scavenge ammo for any of them.
    That ^ funny statement is intended to eliminate the variable of obtaining ammo you don't with you, its not a factor in this choice.

    9mm has the advantages of greater capacity and slightly quicker follow up shots.
    357 Sig has the most energy.
    40 has the biggest bullet.

    Given those parameters which would you carry?

    Edited for clarity.

    I go with 9mm for low cost, commonality, easier to use for barter, plentiful availability, more ammo per mag, and softer recoil (consideration for arthritis).

    How about an added selection called "none of the above". I carry 9mm but not in any of the pistols mentioned.

    I've carried 9mm, .40, and .45. I'll stick with 9mm. But carry whatever you like.

    I have mixed feelings in this poll. While I love 357Sig as a SD around the poll specifically says a Glock.......

    Since the parameters stated that cost is not a consideration, I chose .357 Sig.

    I mostly shoot and carry either .45 or 9mm. I think 9mm is adequate but .357 Sig is better. Enough better for the extra cost? Maybe. If I ever did get into 357, I would have to learn to reload for that caliber. Some say it is just as easy as any other bottleneck case and others have stated that it is harder to achieve good velocity and bullet setback may be an issue. I really do not know. Since the OP is buying our ammo in his scenario, I will take the .357 Sig.

    Pass on the glock. Simple light easy to carry 9mm. 357 is for deer hunting and a revolver would do better. 40 just does not do that much better with today's ammo.
    Yes Taurus really does suck. But in fairness they sure turned it around fast on warranty repair. Time will tell

    Of those listed, I would go with the .40 S&W. I carry a government model 1911 in either .45 ACP or 10mm. Go big or stay home.

    I'm sticking with the 10mm.

    You left out a vote for THREE CALIBERS, ONE PISTOL. I vote Glock 23 with a 9mm conversion barrel, a stock 357 Sig barrel, and the stock 40 barrel. Why limit yourself to just one?

    .40 S&W. You asked. My answer. Choose what YOU want! I own 2 currently. Carry one daily. Yes, I own 9mm's. Just don't carry them any more. AS to one of the parameters you said "If there is a zombie apocalypse or societal breakdown while carrying you will not be able to scavenge ammo for any of them". Why would I switch mid-stream, if I can't have, but the ammo I already have? I guess you're wanting to know why .40 S&W. With out spending a lot of time, my simple answer is, I carry nothing under .40 caliber.

    9mm because that is what I will shoot best out of the options posted and it has the highest capacity.

    My one and only 9mm is a Sig P938 pocket gun which is carried in addition to the 1911 in either .45 ACP or 10mm. I only trust 9mm handguns for bad-breath fighting distances. For .357 caliber, I have three Colt Pythons and two Colt Troopers in .357 magnum.
