    I used to have a G23 and being a bigger guy i had troubles concealing it around the waistline. I am picking up my new 27 this weekend, and i was wondering if anyone had suggestions for carrying for a bigger guy. i'm 6' ,310, built like a tree trunk head to toe

    I am in similar situation and found that I can carry anything of my Glocks in a Cross Breed Super Tuck IWB holster with no problem. The G27 disapears if I wear an untucked shirt. I also can carry a G22 or G30 in the same holster without issue.

    I have a smaller but similar build too. I like the blade tech iwb for easy carry but I've read on here that the cross breed is top notch.

    IWB, I like my 27 in a Comp-tac MTAC. OWB, I use a Galco Concealable. In either case, a 1-1/2" Beltman belt to secure things.

    ETA - 4:00 for me also.

    I'm a big guy too and the best fit I've had is the Crossbreed Supertuck. Just wear an untucked button up shirt over it and it can't be noticed.

    I am a large fellow Glockster and I pocket carry a G27 most of the time in a High Noon Holsters Pocket Grabber. I do wear khaki pants all the time and they have nice large pockets.

    For IWB carry, I use leather holsters from Nick Matthews #1, Gary Brommeland MaxCon V, Milt Sparks SSII, and Kramer Leather IWB #3, Mitch Rosen ARG. I carry between 8 and 9 o'clock or sometimes a little forward at 10. I am left handed too.

    just got the pistol tonight...wow so many holster options...i know when i had my 23 before it got stolen, i had a gould and goodrich pancake 3 slot and a fobus paddle holster...couldn;t conceal either very well due to my size.....had a S&W Jframe in a blackhawk serpa holster...that wasn;t bad to conceal but a tad uncomfortable.....so many holsters, where do you start?? i kinda have the "lovehandle" thing going on so 3:00 is kinda not comfortable
