    I've had a G23C since about 2000. Im in the mood for another pistol and because I shoot reloads I was gonna get something other than glock. (too much internet reading about Kabooms, i've since satisfied my fears with further research) After handling the XD and M&P lines I found I was just too used to the Glock and decided another Glock it is. I'm all set up with components to load .40 and don't want to go through the cost of starting another caliber. So I'm trying to decide between another G23 or a G22. I was leaning toward another 23 for CC but since I ordered a noncompensated lonewolf BBL yesturday, I could use my current .23 for CC and get another .40 S&W like the G22.

    I guess my question is...

    Is 2 G23 > G22 and G23 ?

    What other options would you recommend?

    Im looking for input, to tip the scales.

    Thanks, and hello from Utah.

    I typed out a similar mmore detailed thread yesturday but I think it went into the new member Mod approval black hole. :crying:

    I'd opt for a 22... I love mine!! Your 23c and that new 22 will go together like peas and carrots!

    Hum... 2 G-23 would be one for each hand! If you like the G-23 and shoot it well, you would probably enjoy another G-23. Last year I bought a G-22RTF. I have been very pleased with it. For me it is an excellent choice in terms of size, accuracy, capacity and power. Look at what you want to do with the pistol and then choose accordingly. Sincerely. Brucev.

    Honestly, I believe a G20 is a great companion to a G23. Get a conversion barrel (but use 10mm mags) to shoot .40S&W in the G20 and share ammo, but have the ability shoot .40S&W long, aka 10mm.

    I have back-ups for all of my serious guns. I'm a true believer in redundant systems, 3 is 2, 2 is 1, 1 is none. I'd go with another 23. I have four G17's (if you count my 17L as one) two 19's and 2 26's.

    But, that's me. I kinda like the G20 recommendation since it would give you options...and options are good!:cool:

    One thing to think about is that you can use 22 mags in the 23 but not 23 mags in the 22, buy another 23 and you will have more mags that work in both of your guns.

    Either way you really can't go wrong. I'd personally go with the 22.

    +1, its what I did. I think you can use some of the same reloading equipment on 10mm that you use on .40 but I"m not sure since I don't reload.

    If you get a 22 you can get the new gen 4 22

    I like this thinking too, HMMM now i'm getting some options.:supergrin:

    10mm uses the same dies and bullets and so just some brass is needed. HMMMM

    Try an FNP-40. Good shooter and overall nice quality gun.
