    I really like my G27 and want either a 23 or 22 to act as a larger home defense/carry gun. I am leaning towards a 23 because if I chose to carry that over the G27, it would be smaller than the 22. If you could pick either the 23 or 22, and if it was for carry and home defense whcih would you choose if you could only pick one?

    Since you have a G27 i'd say G22, assuming it will be used more for HD than CCW. G23 if your gonna carry it more, but with the G27 i'll asume that will be carried more.

    Good point, the G27 will most likely be carried more anyway.

    +1. Then you can use the G22 mag for reload on your carry gun (G27).

    Ya I bought a G22 mag for a backup mag already. I guess if the sub compact Glocks will get 95% of carry, the full size models are a touch better for a strict House gun. I think I would go with gen 3 and then if I had too(like I have to do with my G27) a grip reduction is better than getting a Gen 4 and possibly not being able to get a grip reduction(the finger grooves have to go!). So for me, the Gen 3 G22 might be the ticket...

    This is a easy choice for me. The 23 is the only way to go IMO. I do not like the full size glocks. The compacts just feel so much better. Plus like you said OP it is a better CCW piece than a full size

    Buy them all. You know you're going to eventually.

    My opinion though, get the 22 first. Your middle finger on the hangle will be more comfortable when shooting since it is spaced that same as your 27. Count the textured rows on th 27 and 22. There are 3 horizontal textured rows for the middle finger grip as opposed to only 2 on the 23. I shot a several glocks before making my first glock purchase and the trigger gaurd hurt me delicate middle finger on the 23 after a few rounds.

    But the reality is the glock addiction is kicking in, so save up and buy them all

    I have a G27 for CC, and have been wanting a G23 for range/home defense.

    Never even considered a G22, but that is because i have a thing for compact type pistols.

    Keep us updated as to what you do get, and maybe post some comparison pics.

    either way, you are good to go!

    New guy here so I'll jump in here with my first post.

    Just recently bought a police trade in G22 to accompany the G27. All my holsters fit both guns and I've found myself carrying the 22 alot. I had a 23 and sold it for the 27 so I've had all three. Right now I'm of the opinion that the 22/27 combo works well for me. I thought I'd get another 23, but I think I like the 22 better.

    I'd go with the g23. It fits my hand better, has plenty of magazine capacity, and I like the barrel length.

    I am in the same boat as you. Leaning toward a 23C!

    I CCW a 27 and went with a 23 as well. The reason is simply that the 23 was available when I was ready to get one. I will add a 35 later

    If you like the G27 then I would say the G23. I am the other way, have a G22 and G23 and CCW both.

    I have a 23 and 27. I love both. I carry the 23 a lot in the winter and the 27 in the summer. My vote is to go with the 23.

    I have a G27, G23 and G35. The G23 gets less use.

    Get the full size.
