I have a glock 19, I have shot many of other firearms, and needless to say I love my glock, everything about it. Sometimes I clean without even shooting it. I also carry so it gets a little dirty that way. My next firearm purchase will probably be a shotgun. Not sure but I want something for hunting and can still have fun a range. Any suggestions? Also I have a little money, but not a whole to spend on the gun

I don't have to choose I bought both. They shoot same but the 19 is cheaper. They are both great guns.

Try a 23 for pp and think of a conversion barrel to 9mm and get some 9mm mags. Best of both worlds!!
The 40sw extractor works good with 9mm rounds :confused:

Yep all day long. I wouldn't use it for carry but for range use it works just fine. I have shot over 10,000 rounds of 9mm without the first hiccup. you can also just buy a G32 barrel and use your .40 mags and shoot .357sig ammo.. I love my G23 its a good all a round handgun.. :D

It can. In any event this combination is often good enough for range work; but, deemed unreliable by many experienced users for self-defense.

(Me, personally? I wouldn't do it. If the barrel gets changed then so does the: extractor, SLB, magazine follower, and - nowadays - probably the ejector, too.) ;)

Wasn't this discussed in another thread?
I think that it is personal preference. I shoot IDPA with a G19 and do pretty well. That is the same model that I use for EDC. The .40 doesn't have that great of power advantage with the proper ammo selection. I also have several other makes of pistol in 9mm, so the 17/19/26 combo works well for me.

Glock 23

i like the glock 23 because it fits my hand really well. It sits just right in my hand, when i draw it, that i know i will have a solid grip when i need to use it. I also like the .40caliber cartridge more than i like any of the other calibers. 9mm and .45 are great, but i shoot .40 really well and thats why i chose to get the .40 caliber over any of the other calibers.

Welcome to the Glock Forum gunrunner !!

Both the models you have mentioned are great...

I would suggest you find a shop and handle ( and shoot if possible ) both to see which fits your needs better !

I got both.
I say go with a G23, more versatile with conversion barrels.
