    I have put aside $500 for a gun for work. I had discussed in another thread that I wanted a gun to keep inside the office safe at work. I had considerd moving one of my Glocks to that duty, but many people pointed out my Glocks are both sub-compacts (G29 and G33) and I would be better served with something larger and higher capacity in that role. Plus, I figured why should I pull a gun out of my own rotation when I can have the LLC pay for a new one. :)

    After a couple weeks of thinking it over, I am considering going with the Glock 23. This gun would allow me 14 rounds of .40S&W in a durable and reliable package.

    Another option is a Glock 32 which would be pretty much the same thing in a .357sig version.

    What do you think? Good choice? Bad choice? Have a better idea?

    .357 sig, regardless of the size of the weapon.

    I am quite fond of that round. I need to do some research into how well it performs out of a 4" barrel. :)

    As far as I understood, 4" was the optimum barrel length for that round.
    I'm in the market for a 2.5" barreled weapon chambered in .357 Sig myself, for carry. I wonder if that is sufficient.
