    I voted for the 23.

    I have 4 Glocks, a gen 3 27, and 3 RTF2's: a 22, 23, & 19. If (when) I buy another I'm thinking it will be a gen 4 17.

    I already have a 17 and a 19, and am not a .40 or subcompact fan, so the 29 will likely be the one I cash out my blue label card for.

    I voted 23.... I love the .40cal round... and since most Glock people say the Glock 19 is the best CC gun ever, why not carry it's big brother (round power wise) but same size....?

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    My first carry was a G26. Then the addiction set in. My G19 is a great companion to my G26 (mag sharing and what-not). Of course my G23 is a great companion to my G27. And so on and so forth. But tryo to get the mainstays in your collection as well, i.e. a nice 1911, a good wheel gun, a good shot gun, a good rifle, and a plinker or two.

    If I was in your shoes, I'd go for a 17 or 21 to have a full size option in one of the calibers you already have
    I'd also stick with 9 and 45 since you already have them and can stock up on interchangeable mags and ammo for your smaller companions

    Still giving it some thought... Looks like its going to be either a 19 or 17 :)

    Just worried that the 19 will be too similar in size to my 26...? Is the 17 difficult to conceal (I'm 5'8 and 185)...?

    Thanks!

    Love my 23 share carry time between that and a P238 can't go wrong, don't know if all the problems have been worked in the 9mm glocks
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
    And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

    If you donít already own a .22 pistol, that should be your next purchase so you can afford to practice basic marksmanship. There are aftermarket .22 conversion kits for Glocks, but they seem to be in very short supply and I cannot vouch for their performance. The next closest thing may be Smith & Wessonís M&P .22, based upon S&Wís copy of Glockís revolutionary design (sometimes referred to as a ďSchlockĒ). Otherwise, Rugerís classic .22ís are reasonably priced and work well.

    If you have that covered, I think you already own the extremes of the practical civilian CCW spectrum within the Glock catalogue with your G26 and G30. If you yearn for yet another Glock (and thatís certainly understandable), here are my suggestions, based upon decades of plainclothes law enforcement and even more decades of civilian CCW (in order of preference):

    1. Glock 27. Your 9mm G26 is OK for civilian CCW, but I prefer .40, once you master the recoil. Besides, now youíll have the three most common auto pistol calibers covered, should ammunition in one or the other calibers become scarce. (Just take care not to mix up ammo or mags!)

    2. Glock 36. A slimmer alternative to your Glock 30, especially if you donít want to get into another caliber.

    3. Glock 19 or 23, along with your Glock 30, these pretty much represent the practical upper limit for civilian CCW. I would, however, caution against depending upon using their magazines in their corresponding little brothers, as you can induce feed failures by applying pressure to the protruding magazine bottom with your grip.

    Everyone should have a 19 in the stable. It was my first Glock. It is the perfect size. I have the 17,19 and 26. The 26 is the easiest to carry of the three. The 17 can be concealed, I'm 5'10", 170#. But the 19 is not much harder than the 26 to carry, yet easier than the 17. If I could keep only one Glock, it would be the 19.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    It's not.

    Generally impractical for real-world civilian applications, but not impossible.

    If your going to CC it, I might suggest the G-36. It's just enough smaller and lighter than the G-30. I purchased the G-30SF and so far have found it too big and heavy to carry comfortably. I love it, I just don't carry it.

    At least for the 9mm, .40, and .357 SIG, the "compacts" do everything the full sizes do. You won't miss that extra size if you're not competing. I'm actually having the opposite problem you are. I bought a 19 (love it, by the way) and am looking to go down to a 26.
