I have carried a 2nd Gen G23 for 13+ years now and it is a excellent choice for CC. I have gone through a lot of holsters and sights and ammo so take some knowledge from me and save yourself some time and money. I would get some night sights, all carry guns should have a good set, over 85% of all SD shooting happen at night. The TFO sights are hands down the very best I have used, and I have used almost all of them at one time or another. Ammo, the Federal HST is in my opinion the finest SD round on the market, but can be hard to find. Still trying to locate some 9mm HST. Hornaday critical defense is good stuff as well as the old Hydrashoks. Speer gold dots are also excellent rounds for SD. Now holsters, what works for me may not be right for you, but the best rig I have found is the Bianchi carryloc, it has carried my G23 for the last 6 years or so, excellent carry rig. I don't find IWB carry comfortable, much prefer OWB. I have also tried a lot of custom leather and still like the Bianchi better. I would also suggest some of the Glock +2 magazine bases, this will give you 16 rounds of 40 cal, and that my friend is some serious firepower, I carry a extra mag in a kydex mag carrier. I hate kydex holsters but it is the best way to carry a extra mag. If you have any ? feel free to contact me. Oh, check out the Hogue Handall, makes the grip much more comfortable, I had one until I got my Crimson Trace laser grips for the Glock, now it rides on the new HK. If you have smaller hands check out the AGRIP, I have heard good things about them.
Carry as much as you can because when seconds count, the cops are just minutes away!!
