My two fav glock to conceal are my 19 gen4 and my 27 gen3. never have a problem with ether one. The only difference is my 19 is a lot more enjoyable to shoot at the range so I find myself choosing it to carry more often b/c of all the trigger time. I highly recommend the 19 for your first choice.

Depends on what you want. Start with a desired caliber then go from there. My suggestion is:

9mm: G19 or G26

.40: G23 or G27

.45acp: G30, G21, or even G38

Those are the three calibers that i am familiar with. All these are carry friendly except maybe the G21.

Used to be but not any more. It was most generally with the .40 everything is good to go as far as I know. I own a g17, love it

To the OP:

Have you shot the Glock? Or were to advised the Glock was the best choice?

Don't get wrong. The Glock is highly reliable, but also has ergonomics that are NOT for everyone.

If you are sold on Glock from experience, I would suggest the 30 as it's a .45 and what everyone should be carrying.

Great advice, handle lots of guns before choosing. Consider caliber very carefully. 45ACP, 40S&W and 9mm are the most popular calibers and I have guns in each one. For the Glock I went with the 40S&W 23Gen4 and have been pleased with the gun and caliber. A great compromise in power, size and capacity.

Get a Glock 19 for your first. You will never get tired of it and its by far the most versatile and balanced weapon they make. Buy different models from there based on your needs
