Imagine this scenario:

You are limited to 3 pistols for your permit to conceal carry (California). You only have access to Gen 3 Glocks. What 3 Gen3 Glocks would you put on your permit? Obviously I would love a G43 but don't have access to that model and not willing to pay $1,000 for one on the secondary market

I am in this same situation here in CA. 3 guns, 10 rounds, go big or go home. Glock 29 and 30 are on my permit. A 9mm Shield also when I need to really conceal, especially in summer.

Easy, leave commiefornia! If that very good advice is not possible, 26, 26, 26. Why not three of the same, why do they HAVE to be different?

Yes I am considering the Shield as well as the best choice for a single stack 9mm in California. Then thinking maybe the G19 and G21.

I can see the G19. But the G21? I have one and it is just too big to conceal. Well, it’s possible but why bother when the G30 exists. All my opinion of course

I am in CA. Glock 26, Glock 19 (EDC) and Seecamp 32 (occasionally). Be safe my friend :fred:

They don't have to be different. In fact I would probably be carrying the same one the majority of the time. I'm just trying to think ahead for any possible situations, from outdoors fishing and camping to formal attire for special events like celebratory dinners out at restaurants. I have a feeling the G19 will be the one carried the majority of the time. But I have also been tempted to replace it with a G23. I don't really find the 26 conceals too much better than the G19 for me, the width is the same and I like the additional grip surface of the G19

In most CA counties you get three handguns on your CCW Permit. So cold weather carry, hot weather carry and extreme concealment carry. I think that should be obvious. :homer:

Ok, then stick with that size. G19, G23 and....G38.

You are covered in all calibers if you get a .357 Sig barrel for the G23.

26,19,and 17
You don't think the 19 and 17 are a bit redundant? I figure I might as well just have 2 19s

How often do you guys in free states rotate between models? The annoying thing about California is the permit is tied to the weapon, so you can't just pick up a new gun and decide to carry it for a bit then swap it out for something else you find in the store. The permit only allows the exact gun you qualified with during the test, by serial number. So the decision is a bit tougher because you are basically committing to the gun for 2 years (the duration of the permit)

Same for me. I ended up carrying my Glock 19 Gen 3 24/7 365 except to doctor or dental appointments, which I have many as a senior with health issues. Then the Seecamp .32 goes unnoticed in my pants pocket.

G19.

Then put the money for the other two towards moving expenses.

That's the beauty of America. You don't have to tolerate oppressive laws. Vote with your feet.

I had to try out a couple different states before I found one I could call home.
