    Best all around Glock for Conceal Carry???

    I am in the market for a sub-compact Glock......What do you think is the ideal glock for conceal carry and why. I am currently leaning towards the G27 (40cal). Is the sub-compact that much more conealable than the compact?

    My G27 is my most concealable pistol. It has been my go-to for EDC for a long time, until.......I got my G19. Now I switch off when the urge strikes me. The compact frames are concealable...the sub-compacts are ultimately concealable. I just finished putting in a G17 smooth trigger in my G27 this evening.

    I have a 19 and a 26. I have custom leather for both, and I still think the 26 is way easier to conceal.

    I have both the 26 and the 27. I would go with the 26 for the following reasons.

    1. Can carry more ammo
    2. Recoil is significantly less
    3. Cheaper ammo
    4. Exactly same dimensions
    5. 9mm is a world standard
    6. Reserved for future brilliant epiphanies
    7.
    8.

    I have found that the G19 is easier for me to conceal because of where the grips fall.

    I traded (sold) my G23 and got a G27. Any of the subcompacts will conceal just about the same. You just have to decide which caliber and how many rounds. I love the 27. Loaded it up with a Lasermax internal laser, trigger job - and might treat it with a custom slide plate just for that personal touch.

    OH OH! I know this one!

    Actually, my G26, and my wives G26 are our EDC's for exactly almost the above reasons, plus a bunch.....all of which revolve around the Glock question you already eliminated (e.g. 1911 JMB versus etc etc etc ad infintum ad nauseum)

    I have no problem concealing my 19 (or my 17 for that matter)...but I'd still like a 26 just for the heck of it.

    go with the 26. It'll do everything the 27 will do but you'll have more ammo on board, less muzzle-flip, and it's cheaper to feed.

    I have the G-36 (.45) and the G-26 (9mm)...I like the 'bigger hole' option, so its the 36, it also has the better grip (for me)...OMO

    Stay armed...make bigger holes...stay safe!

    I liked the 27 I had but I luv my 23. The reason is I shoot it much better. I gound my self putting pinky extentions on my 27 defeting the purpuse of a smaller gun. The 23 is still concealeble with mor accuracy.

    G27 is easier than the G23 to conceal, at least for me. The grip is shorter. Barrel length really makes little difference, it is the grip that sticks up and out above the belt line.
