    I have a Glock 17, and I'm pleased with it as a CC Weapon. But to feed my gun habit, can anybody suggest a better EDC, so I have an excuse to buy another Glock? Please tell me why you recommend it for CCW.

    I am very fond of the Glock 26. It is appreciably smaller than the G17 and more than one guy herer has suggested that they shoot it as well or better than bigger Glocks.

    I too am a fan of the subcompact frame. Whichever caliber you choose, the 26/27/33 is awesome for concealed carry. Add a mag base plate from Concealable Control or whoever they are and a set of night sights and you're in business. I have a 27 with those baseplates and a set of green/yellow Meprolights from Lone Wolf. Very happy with that gun.

    The G26 & G19 are both great carry guns in the 9mm format and I have both but my everyday carry is a G30.
    It is what I feel comfortable with and I dress around it even in this blazing hot spring/summer we are having so far.
    "A" style T-shirt, open or closed button up shirt and shorts with an OWB is what I am comfortable with and I can usually make it work.
    What is best for you may depend on age, body shape, flexibility, dress style and other situations.
    Good Luck!

    No question, if it has to be a Glock it would be the 26. Incredibly accurate and easy to shoot.

    Both the 23 and 27 work well for me. Not at the same time though.....usually ;)

    For me it's a G37/38 in the winter and a G19/26 the rest of the year. One or the other, not both at the same time.

    For me I like the G30sf for EDC. Other then that I CC 38 spec. when the G30 will not work.

    I concur the G23 is a ton of firepower in a little package...the 27 would be slighty more concealable, but god I can make my G23 disappear w/my CBST holster.
     
  12. I have a G17, G19, G26, and G36. I carry the G36 as it conceals the best. With a GOOD holster, I can conceal the G19 almost as well. I would prefer to carry the G19 because of greater firepower.
    I can't conceal the G17 easily due to the big grip which prints.

    Whichever one you can comfortably carry, conceal, and shoot well. :wavey:

    My suggestion would be either a G19 or G36. Almost the same size with a Peace +0 extention on the G36 mag. I carry either one OWB under a t-shirt with no problem. They both give you a little more grip than the G26/27 size guns. That could be important if you have bigger hands.

    You need an excuse for an EDC that's smaller, more compact, and delivers the same or more power than your G-17?

    You've come to the right place for the answer, I'm sure.
