Glock 23 vs. Glock 21 ( .40 vs .45)

I've got a Glock 23 .40 caliber and have a chance to get a good deal on a Glock 21 .45 caliber. Any thoughts on which is a better gun/caliber, mostly for self-defense? Pros/Cons?

You just shot an unarmed man. Well he should have armed himself!!! Clint Eastwood.

The G21 has a bigger grip. Have you held one? Does it fit your hand?

As to what is better...I dont like .40 but you are giving up capacity going to the G21 which is also a fullsize gun, harder to conceal.

With a good bullet that is designed to kill bad guys, you or them will never know the difference. The 21 is a full size pistol and will be heavier and harder to conceal. Pick the one that you can put hits on target.

Are you concerned about carrying concealed? I have a Glock 23 and it is very difficult to conceal during the warmer months. I ended up purchasing the newer Glock 42 (.380). Here it is compared to my 23.



Rumor has it Glock will be coming out with a new single stack 9mm at the next shot show.

Glock 21 is very difficult to conceal. I have one and love it, but seldom carry it due to the need to having to be "dressed correctly" to conceal it. I can carry my 23 will little problem. 1911 compact is even easier to carry.

Don't let our differences defeat us.

Speaking of the Glock 9 single stack...

I'm holding off buying a XDS in hopes it appears fairly soon.
