    Itchin for a Glock 27

    I got a itchin to bring home a G27 little brother for my G23. My question is does the 27 really conceal much better than 23? I can hide my 23 pretty well. It will print some in summer shirts. Will the 1 inch smaller 27 conceal all that much better in t-shirts and shorts?

    I really like my G27. That said, my most concealable EDC is a Walther PPS. It is so slim that you almost forget you have it on. It comes in .40 too. Mine have been 1000% reliable.

    Some will tell you no ,it will not
    But for me my G26 does conceal better
    than the G19 I had.

    As a rule a shorter grip will always conceal better

    You'd be surprised. I conceal the G19/G23 very well also, but my G27 just about disappears.

    I got the itch when they first came to market, many years ago. I carry mine in my front pocket with no issues. You won't regret buying the 27.

    I do find my G26 conceals better than my G19, even with the Pearce pinky (+0) extension on the G26 mags. The bottom rear corner of the grip is what typically prints, and that is what is removed from the subcompacts.

    You will never regret getting a Glock - any Glock.

    I think it conceals better. GAP Floorplates are a must.

    I've carried the G23 for a year and a half and have never had a problem concealing it in an M-Tac holster from Comp-Tac. I am a big guy at 6'0 and 245lbs and I wear khaki shorts and T shirts in the summer. Occasionally I'll pocket carry my S&W 642 or Ruger LCP but that's just because I don't want to go through the ritual of putting on a holster. I've looked at the G27's at the local shops and I just can't see giving up 4 rounds of firepower for less than 1" of grip (the g23 is 5.00", the 27 4.17"). Guess it all depends on your concealment needs. I still might get a G27 (or 26) down the road 'just to have one'. Cool little guns...

    My G27 conceals quite well even with the Pearce grip extension. The longest part of the extension is in the front of the grip pointing downward when holstered.

    I want one too, just to have another... I can say that a 26 disappears, and I don't feel I could hide a 19 in the same manor.. So the answer to your question would be YES.. It makes a big difference..

    I agree. My 26 is much easier to conceal than my 19.

    Carrying my 19 or 23 is comfortable. But when I take my 23 out of my holster and slide in a 27, you can definately feel the difference. The 27 is also easier to conceal.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
