W/ 180 gr. HST it's a good stopper, w/ 180 gr. TMJ it'll punch through the brisket of a big hog. I carry a mag of each in the field and load'em as need be.
Shootable uncovered too. (although I wouldn't make a casual habit of it)
I'd sure like to see Glock come out w/ a .40 slimline based on the G36. Just use the same top end as the G23 but bevel the muzzle end, and stuff Nine (yes, I tried it) .40's into a modified std. G36 sized mag and frame.
I would buy a case of'em.
The more I research the G-23 .40 the more I like it. Almost identical to the 9mm G-19 with the exception of .40 caliber VS 9mm. Not sure why it weighs 1oz more than the G-19 unloaded as it has the same frame. Must be the barrel weight?
