So much of this depends on how you dress. I were carpenter jeans and cary the G27 in my front pocket with a desantis pocket holster.
I caried the G23 in a IWB Milt Sparks holster.
For me the G27 is much eaiser to conceal. I have a +2 on the mag so I can shoot it well with or with out it.. I have a Crimson Trace grip on the 27 and Love it...
If I had dress up I would go with the G23 and a IWB of some sort...

Of course, the baby Glocks have their place too but I opted to postpone that buy until later on. I figured I could carry a G19 primary and a G26 BUG (or 23/27 combo if you prefer .40 S&W) and use the longer mags for reloading both.

I have been through all the Glocks at one time or another and finally came back to my Glock 17 for carry. I use a Fist thumb break pancake holster and it works just fine I just had to learn to dress around it. Use Gold Dots for carry and white box for practice
