    like glock 23 and glock 19. I know it's different size, but is there like a different feeling when you're shooting?

    the 23 and 19 are the same size. they are different calibers. the 19 is 9mm. the 23 is .40 S&W.

    you could try www.glock.com for things like that. as for what they feel like shooting, the larger the frame is, the less recoil you will usually feel. that's a general rule, there are exceptions. ammo will make a difference, and some calibers and rounds are naturally hotter than others, so they have more recoil.

    The G23 has a harder "push" to the recoil, but neither is a hard gun to shoot. i'd always recommend learning on a 9mm G19 instead of the .40 G23 though.

    The .40 Glocks are much more snappy than the 9mm Glocks. However, you can put a 9mm barrel in a .40 or .357 Glock, as long as it is not an OEM Glock barrel, due to the outside diameter not being the right size, and use that for practice, just have to swap out the magaznies. However, in doing so, your Glock may not be 100% reliable. But there really is no diff. between the two other than calilber.

    I prefer the midsize myself, but I carry the 26. I have shot all 3 side by side, and all three are accurate, it's just that I shoot different ones better on different days.
