Hello from PA

In the process of shopping for my first Glock, this seemed like a good place to research.

Not new to guns by any means...I've just avoided Glocks until now.

Currently looking at a gen 4 23 for EDC, but my local dealer is trying to convince me to get the 26. My opinion is by the time I add the mag extension I might as well have the extra bit of barrel for accuracy to go with it.

I'd welcome any suggestions from the guys carrying these ccw...

Thanks!

What's up from Delaware! I love the Glock 23! Just bought a brand new Gen 3 last week. I'm picking up a new Glock 36 for concealed carry today, because its slimmer than the 23, being that its a single stack. Plus it's .45. Can't wait, but the23 is an awesome gun. Good luck and have fun!

I know...that's why I have so many AR's and shot guns. Lol

I'm usually pretty picky with carry weapons. I pick one and stick to it. I've carried my Taurus since 03, every day without fail. I haven't even looked for something new until it started giving me grief. Now I don't trust it for EDC. Since I'm moving up from 9mm to .40 I was concerned about reacquiring target with the smaller 26...but I really like the gun. I felt more comfortable in the 23, so I got it immediately. I can spend more range time with the sub compact and get comfortable with it before going to EDC with it. Maybe I'm weird like that...but I've always felt if I can't take my target and control my weapon I'm more dangerous than the bad guy was to begin with.
Now I just have to find an iwb holster locally so I can send my Taurus back for repairs.

There's a ton of threads about good IWB holsters you can check out too. I had a Taurus PT140 for a while until I traded it in. Was a good gun, but like you I fell in love with a Glock. I went with a 19 but a 23 is on my list lol.
