    Ok I’m very intrigued with the 23 I’m looking to get another 40cal seriously looking at the 23 and 2.0 40c. I’ve shot both several times. Just can’t make up my mind. I know buy both but I can only afford one. Decisions decisions decisions. Feed back very welcome.

    I have several Glock 23’s including two Gen 4’s...
    Very nicely balanced, lots of firepower..13+ 1..rounds...in my opinion...one of glocks finest..

    Agreed. Have had several .40 cal Glocks, including the 23; great guns.

    I actually did opt for the 23. It's my truck gun now. Just put night sights on 20191030_213515.jpg her.

    Since you already have another Glock in .40 I'd go with another Glock because of magazine comparability. If it was your 1st .40 and you were looking at a 23 sized .40, I'd go with the M&P 2.0 compact. Having owned 4 G23's, I think the 2.0 is softer shooting.

    I no longer have the Glock 22 I traded it for my current pistol a Gen 1 M&P FS 9mm. A friend told the 9mm is as good if not better than the 40 anymore with the better technology of the 9mm round. But I just really like the .40 always have. Also he said follow up shoots are much easier with the 9 vs the .40

    If you intend to use a WML, go with the S&W. Since it is a .40, I’d go with S&W anyway.

    Lots of deals to be had on used/exc condition Glock 23s. I’d snag one before a S&W M&P in a heartbeat.

    I've been carrying a G23 for 20 years-patrol, SWAT, off-duty. Never felt under gunned. I never shot the Smith, it may be a good gun. Very confident with my 23. Make your choice and train a lot.
