    That is what I have been carrying for the last couple years.

    The only thing more reliable than a Glock is a good wheel gun. You're good to go as long as you dont mind CC'ing a Rubiks Cube.

    Marginally reliable, yes.

    Glock is considered one of, if not THE, most reliable weapons you can get.

    You would do well with a G23. Lots of people carry them.

    Are there better options? I would say yes but you will get lots of differing opinions on which gun is best. If you already have a 23 then by all means carry it ( if you are legal ) but if you don't currently have a gun then I suggest you go to a range that allows you to rent guns and find what works best for you.

    And make sure you ask questions on this site if there is something you aren't sure of.

    Not only is the G23 reliable, it is easy to conceal, light for the capacity it carries, easy to master and apply with the proper training and mindset. Anything mechanical can fail, parts wear over time, weapons need to be maintained, lubricated and cleaned. A GLOCK 23 Gen. 4 is my most frequently carried gun; good choice.

    Cool

    It is my EDC and has been for several years.

    Compact, powerful enough, reliable and easy to conceal.

    I carry mine in a High Noon Public Secret holster.

    Good choice. The dimensions are pretty close to my HK 45c, which is very comfortable and easy to conceal. And you can't get much more reliable than a Glock.

    I also like mkh's comment: if you already have one, congrats. If not, get to know some guns. There's a lot to the idea of finding the best fit for you. But yeah, if you had to just pick one to start with, that's a good choice.

    Good luck, have fun and be safe,

    The only way you can determine if the gun you have is "reliable" or not is to put a lot of rounds through it.

    But generally speaking, I think most Glock owners would say that Glock produces a pretty reliable handgun.

    The wife and I shoot/carry glocks, 5 different models 15 YEARS later ( same guns), 1 jam in her 26 at the range , and it was because my
    reload was a little funky, not a bad ratio a?
