Default Compact vs Sub-Compact for C.C. (Glock)

Looking for general opinions from those who concealed carry compact & sub compact glocks. How well does the compact concealed carry IWB (I'm a small guy 5'9 -165)? Is it worth the increased size & weight to get the additional rounds, longer sight radius, accessory rail? Does it offer noticeably more control when chambered in .357 sig?

My off duty is a glock 33 357 sig sub compact. I carry in a galco king tuk holster my favorite by far. 15 yrs in dept. I also owned the glock 27 40 sub compact. I feel more comfortable with the 33 vs 27 ? Lots of talk down power

Not much conceal advantage in a Glock subcompact versus a Glock compact in my opinion.
Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. My rod is a GLOCK and it comforts me

I have a 26 and 19 and love them both. I bought the 26 first because like you i thought it would conceal better and a year later finally got the 19 because of the full grip, I actually wish I would have gotten the 19 first because after carrying it there really is no problem in hiding it and I have the 5 extra rounds. The compact models are still very nice to carry. I would go with the compact model over sub unless you want to carry in an ankle rig.

There's little difference for those of us that aren't that big. I'm 6'2 170 and my model 30 is just as difficult to conceal as any fullsize model. I actually finally gave up on concealing the glock and bought a sig p938 for size purposes.
