    I can vouch for this ^^. I was involved in a SD shooting 4 years ago inside a vehicle. I was using a G31 and even being in a vehicle I heard nothing. Saw the muzzle flash, but that was about it. Had I not seen the flash, I probably would have squeezed again thinking I hadn't shot the first time.

    Needless to say, I no longer give people I don't know a ride anywhere.

    I understand the concept of auditory exclusion but even though YOU don't hear it, I have to assume your ears did. IOW, the sound waves were still produced, they reached your ears which were still affected by them but your brain decided not to process the sound for you as it normally would because of the stress of the moment. As such, auditory exclusion or not, I assume there's still potential for damage to ones ears. I'm curious, those of you who experienced auditory exclusion, did you notice typical symptoms of being exposed to a loud noise after the fact, such as ringing in your ears, temporary diminished hearing, etc?

    FWIW, I've ordered a G32 barrel for my G23 and I'm hoping it will show up soon so I can try it out. I suspect the .357SIG will become my favorite caliber.

    I didn't experience any ringing of the ears or any noticeable effects, but that's not to say everybody else is the same as me.

    Congrats on the 23. I love both my 23 and my 32. I shoot 40 more, but find the 357sig more accurate. I reload my own so it is actually cheaper to shoot 357sig due to using 9mm bullets. Either way you would have gone it would have been a good choice.
