    I'm looking for a good recommendation for a .40 caliber pistol for concealed carry. I have a Glock 19 and it works really well for me. I was thinking about getting a Glock 23. Wondering if anyone has any other suggestions for a good concealed carry size .40 cal pistol. Thanks for the input.

    I'd vote for the Bersa .40S&W. They offer it in Ultra Compact (10+1) or High Capacity (13+1). Their Firestorm Mini .40 was my first pistol (same as the Thunder with cosmetic differences) & it's been perfect from day one.

    Glock 23 is another good one to think about.

    I know some people don't like Taurus but I have the 740 Slim, no problems and no complaints. It is lite and concealable.

    The glock 23 is a good choice and what I carry, although I'm really thinking about picking up one of the new G27 gen 4's. Besides the newly designed double recoil spring, I like the feature of being able to change the back strap to customize the fit.

    Glock 23 and 27 are hard to beat. That said, I have an M&P 40c and it is a great gun.

    +1 on the M&P 40C, I have the M&P 40 FS, and it is one of the most reliable and accurate pistols I own, that being said, I don't think you could go wrong with the XD or XDm service, Sub Compact or 3.8 either.

    Sig P239. I have it in 9mm, but it is available in .40 and .357Sig.

    Single stack, very concealable, DA/SA with decock.

    I also have the 740. Have had zero problems with it. A little snappy on the recoil with 180 grain. I carry the G-22 most of the time.

    You've got a G19, so a G23 is the same size and all. I also have the G27. Rotate them around, depending on my mood and such.

    I've done the Ruger sr40c, Springfield XD40, Kahr pm40, and Glock 23. BY FAR the best for me was the Glock. Next in line will be a 27. The Ruger is a close 2nd, but in my opinion, the 23 is the ultimate semi-auto carry.
