Ya IM thinking bout it but my 23 is. A 40. And has good stopping power for its compact size tho.

So does a 9mm with the new ammo. Higher quality ammo is making 9mm just as viable for SD. I'd say do it!

I was going to say, just do a Lone Wolff conversion barrel, should work fine I think. Same size. I'm a big fan of the G19 of course but it might be less expensive that way.

+1 That makes the most sense & then you could buy a .356 sig barrel later ... that would be :cool:

I love my 19 .. but want either a full size or a long-slide .40 for that exact reason.

My initial thought of was also the conversion barrel. Unless you want to EDC 9mm. I wouldn't do that with a conversion barrel, just for reliability sake. If you're ok with EDC .40 cal, then get the 9mm conversion barrel for practice. That's what a lot of us have done.

Since the frames are the same size, the only difference is caliber.

All of the service calibers work or fail about the same. Calibers are options. If one was truly superior in stopping humans every one would use that caliber only. Choose the caliber you shoot best at speed with accuracy. Today's modern ammo has leveled the playing field. Terminal ballistics wise there is little difference between a 40 and 9mm. A properly placed shot with a good 9mm that fails to stop would yield the same results with a 40 under the same conditions. After going through all the calibers in many years I am back to carrying 9mm. Never felt under gunned with 9mm going into harm's way daily. Bill
