I searched and have read pages and pages of blogs in the last week. I can't find one that has my situation. I only own a G26. I'm getting my CCW soon and when I do I want another gun to have as a home defense pistol (and it's a great excuse to get another ) I've been reading 9mm vs. .40 debates and thats the last thing I want to start here but the simple fact is that I love the size of the 19/23. I shoot the 19 really well, better than my G26. At the same time I don't feel that a G19 can do anything my 26 cant do. That being said I'm debating on either the 23 or 19. I already have a 9mm so should I go ahead and get a .40? I also reload 9mm but I could easily get a .40 die set for around $40. Then I'm thinking well if i go ahead and get the 23 maybe I should just go ahead and get a 27 instead so I could CCW a bigger caliber pistol. I know I could always do a conversion but I really do not want to go that route. I want whatever gun I buy to stay in that configuration. What do you think?
