Default G22 or G23

Just turned 21 and I can't decide weather I should go with the G22 or G 23 I just want it for home protection and the range maybe once or twice a year.

If its just for those purposes, why not get the fuller framed 22? I mean if size is no object. More rounds in the 22 factory mag too...

The G22 is the full size .40 S&W. Remember you can buy
a .357 Sig barrel for the G22 and have two calibers to
play with.

For range and home defence, The full size G-22 hands down. more control, higher mag capacity, less felt recoil, more accurate at longer distances. With the reight holster, you can even carry it for CCW. My G-22 is my primary carry.

It doesn't matter, hell, some people will tell you the gen3 is the better pick of the two. The classic "if it ain't broke don't fix it" approach. I have both gen3 and gen4 and the only advantage I get is the interchangeable backstraps on the gen4. The grip stippling doesn't matter cause I use a grip glove by pachmayer anyways. Have no fear on the gen3.

Just got my tax money back, and made up my mind to buy a glock in 40 s&w. i cant make my mind up as well the G22 or G23c. Things to consider I have my ccw. But am very happy with my light keltec pf9. I also gave a xd9 sub compact, judge public defender, and a sig 1911 22lr. If the G23 is easy to conceal I would perfer it then. But now I didnt know in G22 u can get .357 sig barrel. Thats awsome. Any input would be great.

Great idea! Or go for the trifecta like I did: first got a G22, then G23 and finally a G27.

I was looking at the new CDNN catalog that came today and they have LE trade-in G22 Gen 3s with night sights for $370 in very good to excellent condition. They also have G22 Gen 2s without NS for $340 in the same conditon but the extra $30 is worth it.
