Might take a look at the CZ P-06. Comes stock with night sights.

A few weeks ago I got my concealed permit. The only pistol I have is a sigma sw40C. It's kind of older. It shoots great and I carry it at my current job on a regular basis. I am looking to stick with a 40 cal. FOR NOW as that is what I am qualified to carry where I work. I looked at a glock 27 I believe. It had an extended mag but it still seemed to small. I want a 40 cal. that I can conceal easily but something that will fit comfortably in my hands. Maybe ya'll can steer me in the right directions. I am totally open to any make. Thanks guys.

If you looked into Glocks, you might like the fit and feel of a G23. The G23 is the same exact size as the G19 and I conceal my G19 just as well as my G27. My G19 spent the day with me today in jeans and t-shirt (yes still about 74° here). Even made the trip with me to Outback Steakhouse! I'm 6'1" and 200lbs.
archer 51, thanks for the quick response. I will take a look at that gun for sure.
Ramrod, I'm 6'2 205 so we are about the same size, I will def. look into the G23 maybe it will fit better. 74 Degrees!!! Must be nice!! enjoy the warm weather! Thanks again for the input
Another vote for the Glock 23.
You can never have enough magazines or ammo.
Before you decide, pick up the S&W M&P 40c and give it a try, I think you'll be pleasingly surprised.

Any size handgun can be concealed, comfortably. It is all a matter of wardrobe, holster, and skill.
I carry a Baby Eagle full size (4.72" brl), 13+1 .40 S&W. This is considered a large and heavy carry handgun despite the name "Baby Eagle".
My holster is a variation of the CrossBreed Supertuck. I wear it at 3:30-4:00 tucked IWB. I am 5' 15", 165#. I very rarely if ever print either through my jeans or shirt.
My jeans are about 1" too big in the waist, and I blouse my shirt once I tuck it in (raise my arms straight up in the air and stretch).
If you like your weapon, can shoot it accurately, and are comfortable with the reliability, then stick with it. Just find a method of carry that will accommodate it.

I have been carrying a G23 for 13 years, check out the Carry Loc holsters by Bianchi, by far the best OWB holster I have used.

I love my Springfield XD .40c. I like the integrated safety features and I prefer the firing position over the glock. I am 5'10" 205 and it conceals on a OWB Galco just fine. I love this weapon; go shoot one and you might too.

I am just as nice as anyone lets me be and can be just as mean as anyone makes me. - Quoted from Terryger, New member to our forum.
I took the G23 over the sub-compacts. It's a decision that I have not regretted.
Another Vote for the XD. I carry at 45! But the concept is the same!! Great guns!!
You might be weak but God is Strong!
I also second or third or whatever the G23
