Totally depends on the purpose....

I don't like even the idea of 40s&w, so for me is obvious, but if you've already got a 9mm and you're not trying to replace it, get the 40!

I prefer the 19 over the 23. I think in that frame size the 9mm is a better option. There's little recoil opposed to the sharper recoil of the 40.

Buy a 23 and drop an extra $120 on a Lone Wolf 40-9 conversion barrel. Now you've got both!

Both are fine guns, and essentially identical. I have Glocks and am happy enough with what they are. The XDm is my polymer of choice, however. But nothing is going to be cheaper or easier to convert (if that's at all a factor) than a Glock.

Can you use the 40 mags on a 9 conversion

Congrats! Now you ought to get a 9mm to 40 S&W conversion barrel.

Oh yeah, they don't make that.

I have a G19 and large hands, after about 200 rounds it starts pinching my pinkey where the mag meets the grip at the front. It seems there is just enough gab between them, anyone else have this issue? Sorry to hijack the thread OP....

I've heard several people complain of that same pinch though I have never noticed it. You might look into one of the grip extensions like people use for the small frame Glocks ( I think the one on my 27 is made by Pierce?) it doesn't add an extra round so it doesn't make it harder to conceal just gives a different feel.
I think mine was about $8 so might be worth a shot.

I really liked my 23, felt it was a great size w little trade off. I have owned mostly .40 s&w so the recoil is normal for me.
