Another 29 or a new 23?

I've been a huge fan of the 10mm cartridge for several years now to the point where I basically shoot it exclusively. The only exception is my 1911's and my G30. I've been curious about getting into more glocks but I'm a bit hesitant because no other caliber has any advantage over the 10mm whatsoever. I've also been reloading for the 10mm and the 45 for the last couple of years. My question is, is it worth getting into like the G23 or even the G32? Obviously I love my glocks and at this point, the 1911's have become just range fun guns. Any opinions or suggestions?

I'd say definitely go for it. 40 S&W brass is so cheap and many powders,your 10mm reloading dies, and bullets from the 10mm are compatible that it's almost a no-brainer.

I just picked up 2000 pieces of 40s&w brass for $70. Just do it!!!!

Thanks Krumfola. I'm intrigued by the size of the 23/32/19. I wish they made the 29 with the grip length of the 23. I own both the 20 and the 29. Mag extensions on the 29 are a no go. Too much torque while gripping causes misfeeds.

If you buy a 23, add a couple of LWD barrels and you will have the 23, 32 and 19 all in one gun.

I have a 20, a 29, a 32, and a 34. I love my 10's but that 32 is a riot to mess with also. If you reload you might enjoy 357sig. Russ

You all know me to be a bit 10mm fan, but I do really like my 23. The 29 frame is wide, so the 23 seems more conducive to carry. I shoot about 90/10% 10mm and 40 SW though.

You can't go wrong with a Gen 4 G23. I have one and like it. It is one of my primary carry and home defense guns.

You could add a .40 S&W KKM conversion barrel to your G29. Maybe even an exotic length.

Since I've started handloading the 10mm for my 2 G20SFs, I've pretty much lost interest in all my other pistols. It's a shame since I have a number of other Glocks and a ton of brass for the other calibers. Nothing can match the fun and versatility of the 10mm IMHO.

I may end up getting a .40 S&W KKM conversion barrel for one of my G20SFs to take advantage of all the brass I have. Maybe a 5". KKM will make one to a custom length at no extra cost if you call and ask.

I'd much sooner go with a G19 over the 23.

I use the G23 Gen4 as my primary CCW. Only prob I've ever had was the ejector part deflecting hot cases into my face, forehead,etc. HQ sent me a replacement and that was that. Shoots like...PERFECTION. For me, it's large blackstrap and ambi features make it feel and balance just right. I use the KKM std length bbl. Ne'r a failure. Good size for IWB carry. I feel My G29 more due to the mild but perceptive width increase. The .40 SW is a formidable stopper, all things considered. The combo is a great balance in all aspects. I've shot it for 4 years and it is still a pleasure and reliable system. Only mod besides the KKM is a set of grn TRUGLO's TFO sites. Take care of it and it'll take care of you...Like most Glocks. Enjoy your new 23! ;-)
