    Glock 19 for CCW?

    I have a G19 and would like to know if this might be too big for concealed carry? I'm a big guy. I'd prefer to appendix carry but 330 is ok if necessary. I can't invest in another firearm at this time and wouldn't want to part with my Glock anyway.

    IMHO, you've got a winner there.

    Carry it. Theres nothing better. The 19 could be the most popular carry pistol in the world today.

    Nothing wrong with a 19. Get a Versa Max and carry it.

    I carry my G19 IWB every chance I get, most of the time in shorts and a t-shirt. You my friend have arguably the best CCW weapon out there.

    Compact size Glocks

    I have a Glock 19 and the similar Glock 23. I have often carried them OWB at 3:30 in a Kramer holster. Glock calls these guns "compacts" and they do conceal quite well because the grip is fairly short (compared to a 1911 or similar) and their weight is light, just over 20 ounces empty. The guns are also fairly slim - from 1.0 to 1.1 inches thick. You just need a good belt and holster, and an ample cover garment.

    For IWB, get you a Comp-tac MTAC and a G19 wil practically disappear.

    I think it depends on your clothing style.

    I'm a 110 lbs woman and I conceal a G19 very easily.

    Clothing style matters a lot more than size, in my humble opinion.

    I routinely carry a G23 AIWB

    The Glock 19/23 series is just about the perfect size, imo.

    I recommend a High Noon Public Secret or Dale Fricke Archangel for AIWB holsters

    Just took mine off...if it's not the 19 it's the 23 or 27. I can actually tell the few oz difference, (lighter) between the fully loaded 19 and 23.

    It's a great carry gun!
