    Hey everyone! I would like to know what your choice would be for the best Glock for a CCW. I have a G35 and I'm a pretty big guy, but I think I would like one of the smaller versions for this. I like the G27. That way I can stay with the same caliber. But, I also wouldn't mind the G26. But, I also like the G36. You see my problem...

    I have to go through all the BULL of taking a CCW class and getting my permit first (not to mention, selling my wife on the idea ;J ). So, it will more than likely be a while. But, I would like everyone's opinion so I can keep my eye out for a good deal ;)

    Thanks!!!

    Yet another: 27
    Great little gun. I carried one for a few years and they conceal beautifully. Why don't I have it now? I foolishly sold it. I'll bet 2/3 of my posts are me lamenting that sale :(

    My vote is for the Glock 23, small, yet fits my hand and is more accurate for me. In the right holster, it conceals good also.

    I had considered the G-23 before I bought my G-27. I, too, dislike curling my pinkie finger under the grip. I decided that the slightly shorter slide/barrel wouldn't handicap accuracy too much (I wasn't looking for a target pistol, just a reliable and REASONABLY accurate carry gun). The shorter and LIGHTER slide/barrel of the G-27 was a definite benefit when concealing and carrying all day long. The shorter slide/barrel also means I can "clear Kydex" faster.
    My solution? I got the G-27 (Mep night sights), put a Pearce grip extension on one of the 9 round mags (it doesn't add to the length of the backstrap---the part of the pistol that "prints" most!), I put a +1 on the other 9 round mag (when wearing slightly bulkier clothing). Then I bought a pre-ban, 13 round G-23 mag with a A&G sleeve.......presto! The best of both worlds. And I can always get a flat floor-plated 9 round mag.
    Get your self a Sidearmor IWB with the J-hooks, and you're set to go.

    G23 is it for me! Those G27's are nice as a back up but nothing more. The G23 is the best all around CCW weapon with a 13 round capacity. My G23 has Trijocon night sights, Lasermax, Agrip grips, Extended mag. rel. and grip plug. ;) ;c

    I have both the 23 and 27, and I'm also a big man.

    In the summer, nothing conceals better than the 27 - period. Forget the mag extensions and all of that, they just make the 27 harder to conceal. The rest of the year it's the 23.

    If I had to choose between them, I'd have to go with the 27 for year round CCW and actually, I shoot it a little better than the 23.

    Good luck with your permit.

    Personally I have to say G23. I like the size better (I'm big too).

    Yes the G27 is about five times easier to conceal, but I like the fact I can use the 23's taller grip as an impact weapon in a really tight spot. The g27 just isn't as tall

    G27

    I carry two of them everyday with no problem at all

    If you're interested in the Glock26 then do like I did and buy the 9mm Conversion barrel. I can shoot very cheaply with 9mm ammo and it is still very accurate and reliable.

    G27 all the way if you are worried about concealment - I dress business casual everyday and when I'm casual it's boot and jeans.

    Thanks ;f to everyone for the comments. I think the G27 is clearly in the majority. That suits me fine since it is a .40 like my G35 ;) I think that was probably my route anyway, but now I have the all important backing of GT!!!

    I agree with the above, the 23 is all around better and Im large as well (6' 6", 235). although I toyed with the though of getting a 27, but my hands are to big. Best of luck to ya!

    G27!

    It is powerful, controllable and concealable. I also have a G27 but for whatever reason I score better with the .40 S&W version of the little gun. It also feels more assuring knowing there are 11 (Pearce +1 grip extension on mag) .40 caliber, 155g slugs ready to clock out of the 3.4 inch barrel at 1,250 fps.

    In the cooler months, I wear my G-23 with a belt scabbard OWB, just because it conceals better under a sweater or jacket. In warmer months, I wear my G-27 IWB since a shirt hanging out will conceal it. If I am wearing shorts and a t-shirt, I take my j-frame in a pocket holster. Of course, if I am wearing my burgundy shoes, I take my G-30 because it has a burgundy holster. My black suit goes well with my G-31, since it has a black beltslide holster. Sometimes I aslo carry my G-32 for a change of pace. My wife has both of my G-19's, so I don't carry those anymore. I do like my G-34, though, it is sooooo accurate. Uh, what was the question again?
