I've got the laundry list of questions.
1. Got a decent holster? A good holster makes a huge difference.
2. Got a gunbelt? If you're using a wimpy belt carrying just plain sucks.
3. How long have you been carrying? It takes awhile to get used to having a gun on your side. It can take a long while.
4. Do you carry daily or occasionally? The less often you carry extends the length of time to get used to carrying a larger heavier gun.
It took me almost 3 years to find the combo that really works for me. I carry only on weekends due to no carry laws at work. I started out with the gun I wanted to carry (G26). Bought an MTAC IWB holster. Made a good choice right out of the gate there. Takes a while to break in but very adjustable! Tried a couple of belts, used a Wilderness 5 stitch for a couple of years, worked good but kinda ugly. Now I'm using a 5.11 casual, tough as nails and looks like a normal belt. I give that one two thumbs up! I've added a set of Duluth trading suspenders recently since I have got no a**! Suspenders may not be for everybody,but I'm getting older and have no fashion style anyway!This setup allows me to carry a G17 with complete comfort.
I hope you put in the time and effort to make your G23 work for you. It's well worth the effort.
Obviously there are times when I can't carry one of my Glocks but I do if it's at all possible. When I can't I carry a Taurus TCP738 in my pocket. But it's not often.
