My Gen 4 G19. It fits me perfect for CC, ammo is cheaper for plenty of range time, and it just feels right in my hand.
I've been handloading since I was 19, that's 32 years so it's pretty much old hat to me. I can load a box of 45acp with Home Cast bullets(don't worry, I'm using a Lone Wolf barrel to shoot em' in) for $2.50 plus my time. Of course my free source of wheel weights has dried up so I'll be paying .50 cents a lb. for em' from here on out but still, I'd say I'll still be around $3.00-$3.50 a box even then.ammo is cheaper for plenty of range time
I agree I want to get a g23 next month assuming everything goes well with my ccw application. .40 cals are still a very large round and from a few ballistics testings I've seen that .40 cal has the deepest penetration for whatever type of hollow point they were using. I would guess that's true for any ammo with same powder loads but I don't really know for sure.iShoot said:I too vote for the 23... I did a lot of research before making my purchase a few weeks ago. Here's my reasoning: .40 caliber has more stopping power than a 9mm, more ammo capacity than .45, it's the in between round. Second is size, it feels as comfortable to shoot as a full size pistol, yet small enough to use as a everyday CCW. Although I think the 23 is the best do everything pistol, the next one I save up for will probably be a 21!
