Haven't shot most of the Glocks you mentioned. I have shot all of the 9MM and they were fine. I just think that with a 9MM bullet selection comes into play too much.
I have a G22 and a G36. To me it is not much harder to conceal the G22 than the G36. The only time I ever shot the G27 was one month after having my thumb re-attached. I didn't like it. It hurt. Bad. I would like to give the G27 another look see now, due to size, capacity and the thumb has pretty much healed up.
Heres is my thoughts. I am 6'2", 230lbs.
G36 is about as hard to conceal as double stack Glocks.
When I IWB carry a Glock I have to use third hole on a 40" gun belt.
When I IWB a 1911 I use the fourth hole on a gun belt, plus I don't have the problem of the back of the slide printing.
If I am going with low capcity I go with 1911 or 5 shot 357. If I want more rounds I go with double stack Glock.
Seems like most other folks here are able to conceal the G36 easier than I can. Probably due to holster selection and body type.
In my opinion, if you are going to pack a Glock go with a double stack.
My G36 has been flawless and I have no intention of parting with it. I have had it since DEC and have only ran about 300 rounds through it. It has pretty much been a safe queen since I got it. I still haven't paid for it yet. I am buying it from my brother in law and he said give what I wanted to for it. Pretty sure that $400 will be a win - win price.

First thing that came to mind is...yeah from a litter of those ugly pug dogs...sorry. Carry on.
Speak softly, and carry a big stick.
The 36 conceals great but if you want a double stack go with the 29; go big or go home. Ha Ha

I would go with the G30 or G19.

If I go back to a Glock, for concealed carry, which is unlikely, due to hand-to-weapon fit issues, it will be a G29, with surgery to make it fit me. I loved my G29; the others were just Gluncks.
In principle, I would go with a 9mm Glock over any .40 or .45 Glock. So many Glocks I hear about, that are drama queens, are invariably chambered in .40, 357 SIG, or .45 ACP. (This includes the .40 Glocks I used for police duty.) Yet, 9mm Glocks perk right along. With modern premium JHP ammo, I don't think there is any significant difference in "stopping" power between 9mm and .40 S&W. I will take less drama over any slight increase in "stopping" power, any day.
Funny, I don't hear or read about issues with 10mm Glocks, either.
For small, the G26 or G27 gets my vote...I have a 26 and am saving for a G19..

IMO you're looking at the wrong breed of dog, Glocks are like poodles, over hyped and ugly.

I suppose I'll be "that guy" who recommends one that is not on your list.
A Glock 19 9mm is very, very hard to beat. Easier to conceal that a G30 because it's thinner, and I love having 16 +P+ hornets ready to go.
One more thing, and I don't mean this to be offensive or flaming, but I've noticed some negative posts that do not seem to help you with your Glock decision because of some folks' problems with the brand itself.
I say listen to them with a discerning ear. After nearly 30 years on the market, Glocks are not overhyped and they are not necessarily ugly. They are ESTABLISHED. This debate is long over. As long as the gun works, and Glocks have proven themselves during the past 3 decades to be at least as reliable as any other brand of handgun out there, I say ignore the detractors, buy one, shoot it, and sleep well at night.
I own the 23 - just ordered the 36. I was really torn up 20 get the 27 or 36. Something about a 45 - makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside
