You will get varied responses here on the .40 cal. I love mine, would not trade it or give it up for anything. Great firearm and excellent choice !

X2.

I did have to under cut the trigger guard to get my fat fingers to fit in the grooves though. Now it really works for me.

Once you get one, you will keep it. Although there are a few others on my wish list, my G23 has special value to me. Maybe because it was my first Glock but others will agree.

Hard to beat the G23, I love mine. I did handle both the Gen 3 and 4 side by side and had to go with the Gen4 though it wasn't a huge difference. I have average hands and liked the smaller grip with no added backstrap.

Hahaha, yeah man it felt okay in my hands. Wasn't like my 1911 springer but
It felt better than other glocks and I wanted something sub compact as a backup pistol. 4th gen is not available in Cali yet

Well I have a Sig P239 in 9mm and love it. The workman ship is really great. In June I bought a Glock 23 and really love it for a lot of different reasons.

I think the Glock 23 is the perfect self defense pistol and I love the 40S&W. Hard to top this combo. If you want I can later post a link to Hickok 45's new video of the G23. He compares his Gen 2 that he's had for years with the Gen4.
