Hey, I have a glock 26 which is what i currently am carrying with Hornady critical defense loads 115 gr. , I was just wondering, and I have never shot a G23 by the way, but I just really like the compact glock size, and I was thinking about if I should have a 40 cal with me instead of the 9mm. Now, I know that most people are going to say they like the 40 cal better, or that I should try them both and see which one I like best. What i want to know are these questions: Make an unbiased statement on the following: Do you think... There would be very big difference in recoil, holster options, etc. and also, Is the wound channel really that big of a difference to feel short changed with a 9mm? Should I feel like my 9mm IS NOT ENOUGH??? I just want to know that IF someone were to threaten my life, that I could stop the threat in their tracks to the point to where my life is safe, and they are not gonna pursue their attack any longer.
