    Best Glock

    I want to get a Glock for concealed carry.
    I want a 9mm easy to conceal but my problem is I have a big hand .
    I have a sig p239 that I have been carrying for the past year but I want a single action and a bigger magazine.

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thanks
    Ray

    A G19 would fill the bill... only Glock doesnt make a single action.

    I think he meant only on mode of trigger operation...

    Another vote for the G19.

    I just bought a G19. My first Glock. IMHO, even the Baby Glocks (G26 & G27) are kind of "fat" for pocket or IWB carry. The G19 (to me anyway) is a good compromise in size. As cooler weather approaches, I'm looking at OWB carry options. For 9MM I still prefer to carry my Kel-Tec P11. It can be very comfortably carried IWB and in a pinch, with the right pants/pocket, can be pocket carried.

    i'v had my G19 for a few months now and could not be happier, if you have bigger hands i would definitely go with the 19 over the 26.

    The Glock 19 in a fine weapon. It is my primary carry because for me it is the perfect combonation of size, capactiy, reliability, shootability and stopping power. Im my oppinion the only negative of glocks as primary CCW's is the thickness. But this will generally be the case with any double stack weapon. To carry a glock comfortably you will need a quality holster and a quality gun belt. But those are two things you should have for ANY gun.

    My suggestion is the Glock 19

    Very nice pistol, 4 inch barrel, 15 round mag's
    I have a Gen3 G19 that i carried for a very short time a couple years ago, then turned it into a training/range gun & added a lightened trigger, better sights, extended slide release, grip tape kit, etc..
    I dont think i'll ever get rid of that pistol. I cant tell you how many rounds we've fired through it but i can tell you that its never had a single malfunction

    Thanks again

    Ray, I don't think you'll be happier with anything else. G-19 is great choice!

    Buy a G19 in OD, they shoot better.
