    I'm a bigger buy (6'6 250) and recently bought a G22 b/c it quite simply felt better in my hands than a G23. Just curious if anyone here conceal carries a 17 or 22 and if so what holster do you use?

    Thanks.

    Galco Concealable or a Sparks VM-2. Been using both for better than 10 years. Primary is a G22.

    My friend does. A G17 in an M-Tac. He is not real big. 5 6" 180 which is a wild guess. He is smaller then me (6'3" 215). I carry a G23 in an M-Tac.

    I have. They are kinda big for my tastes, but just as light as a 26, so if it shoots better in your hand its worth the extra rubbin.

    Haven't been "made" in 10 years, even my wife has to pat me down to see if I'm carrying.

    Yep. I alternate between a G22 and a G23. Used to carry a USP40 or a 5" 1911. I prefer a full sized gun where it's practical. I use a simple wetmold leather IWB holster.

    I concealed that setup just as much as I OC'd with it so :tongueout:

    Just the right fitting jacket is all you need IMO.

    I love my SERPA but it takes a hell of a cover garment to cover my G22 in my SERPA-a tarp might cover it:whistling:
    Great holster-yes
    Great concealment holster-NYET

    :rofl:I just had to chime in with that comment. I was just busting on ya. :wavey:

    FYI: I also use a Blackhawk! Serpa for my Glocks when I carry them now too. Great holster, but I did need at least a jacket to keep it completely concealed. It is an outstanding holster though.

    6'2" and 245Lbs. I wear my G21 full size 45 in my Crossbreed Supertuck Deluxe sometimes. It doesn't hide as well as its little brother due to the G30 grip isnt quite as long as the G21, but the G21 is OK in the Crossbreed.
