I remember my first handgun ever was the Hi-Point .40 caliber pistol. While it was pretty heavy, it functioned flawlessly through the 100 rounds I put through it, before selling it. After that I really never looked into getting another 40 caliber handgun, until recently. This time around, I chose the Glock 23 to keep my Glock 19 company. I figure if I got the 23, I could use the same holsters I have for the 19, and wouldn't have to worry about buying new ones. I went from hating Glocks to owning two of them. I have a feeling it's not going to stop there. G23 and G19 together!
