The G23 is the very good choice in that it is .40 unlike the G19 9mm that is the exact same platform. The G27 over the G26 for the same reason. A 9mm should work, but the .40 ballistics are way better than the 9mm.
I carried the G23 for a long time and moved to the G30 because it was the same height and length, give or take a 1/4" but of course fatter (1.18" vs 1.27") And I gave up 3 rds to the .45, but the .45 make me feel better. :>)
A G23 and night sights for around $550 is not a bad deal. And it's a Glock.
Good Choice.

Best sights are Tru-Glo TFO's. They look same in daylight as night time.

Looks to be an H&K USP, probably a compact.

If you want a CCW gun go with a shield. Its way easier to conceal. Reliability is the same don't even pay attention to that stuff. If you actually shoot your gun the trigger works it's way out. These trigger jobs aren't necessary unless you shoot competition. If your impatient have a smith smooth out the trigger components and it will be fine trust me. Get a good CCW then for home defense or plinking just shoot glock & S&W or whatever and pick your preference.

I had a G-36 and love it . Not a huge fan of the .40 cal , but both are sweet..!

Tuff choice , If you don't like , call me ..!
Or call me! I have a G23 and really enjoy it. I aspire to acquire a 27 and a 30 I am not that fond of 9mm, my personal preference only. But a 26 is a wonderful CCW. I could get used to it... 23 is wonderful. The only issue I have is now the availability of ammo lately. I hope that changes soon to more normal levels.

I would go with the Glock Model 26 since you want a 9mm. *Select good Defense ammunition!
I have carried a Glock Model 27 in 40 Cal. S&W for years. Great carry with plenty of power! Carrying Hornady Critical Defense ammunition in it. They also make it for the 9mm.
This post may be a little late but maybe the suggestion on ammunition will be benificial! The 23 is also a fine pistol. I also have a 22 in 40 that was my duty gun they gave me on retirementme which is the full size 40 cal. l love to shoot it! You will enjoy your new pistol! Good Choice on the 23.
