I Hopefully will be buying a new 40 soon im leaning to a G22 because i own a G19
right now and i love it and its reliable. Just one big question is a G22 a real accurate weapon
compared to say a M&P 40 i had one at one point and got rid of it. The gun was lemon im sure of it
well your input is much appreciated thnx.

If you are committed to the 40, enjoy. If not, check out the G30SF. Many find it easier to shoot than the 40.
As usual, YMMV

I would like a 40 because i have a little stock pile right now.
Is the accuracy of one compatible with most other 40s?

It's as accurate as the 19, don't know about compared to the M&P. On average the Glock isn't considered one of the most accurate pistols but I don't target shoot anyway. I shoot for multiple hits center mass, lotsa lead on target. I have 3, they all work great. If you're going to carry it, I would get the 23, same as your 19. I have lights on the 22's and use them for nightstand/house guns, carry 23's and 27. I always check my brass and have never had a bulged case.

Its definitely not to carry i quite carrying my G19 because of weight and size of gun
now i carry a CW9.

Have you thought about getting a 27? It would be a little more compact for Summer time.

If you have the 19 why not get the 23? They are the same size and it won't be much to get use to. My 23 has been used to compete for years and it's plenty accurate. I shoot ipsc and idpa from time to time.

I'm not into .40. If I was in the market for a .40, first on my list would be a SIG P229.

If you want to stick with Glock, I'd get a 23––all your holsters and training should translate well.

I like to change it up a bit i don't want a 23 to close to the 19 i want different guns not just
calibers. I don't want to carry it thts why i have my CW9.

another great option is the HK USP series

I have a CZ75B in .40 that shoots like a dream and have a .40 SP01 on layaway. I love the .40 round but not a lot of the pistols that are in .40. The SIG 229, Steyer, and CZ40B are about the only other .40s I want. Except the 40B because we already have that one.

Well, I have a G22 that I like a lot, but my M&P 40 is rapidly becoming my favorite pistol. Maybe take another look at the M&Ps, they were supposed to have some bugs in them early on, but smith has them worked out from what I understand.

you could always get the 23, buy a 9mm lonewolf conversion barrel for it to have so you can shoot 9mm and 40, then sell the glock 19... My duty weapon is a g22, I really like the gun alot. fairly accurate as well. I would have never given the .40 a chance but our agency really pushed us to adopt it.

If you already have a 19, get a G35. Longer barrel and sight radius. I love mine.
