I know all my Glock guys probably own more than just one but, which Glock would be a great compliment to my G23? I was thinking G27 but not sure about the short grip. G21 cross my mine but then i gotta buy for two different cals...decisions decisions. I also thought about just getting another G23 but a gen4. Any ideas??

I say get a Gen 4 23, sell the gen 3 23 after you decide if you like the gen 4 (you'll like it, a lot). Then buy a 17, 19 or a 22. That's what I would do Don't really need to buy the tiny Glocks unless you have a reason for getting one .

I own only two Glocks, the Glock 26 and the Glock 27 both of them are Gen 4, and they're really the only Glocks I have a need for or want to own. What I would do in your case is go to a few local shops and compare some of the Glocks, and if they're are some ranges that have rental programs I would check them out too. I think that if you find you can handle the short grip of either the Glock 26 or Glock 27 then I would strongly recommend either one, but if you can't then I suggest the Glock 19 or maybe the Glock 21.

Regarding ammunition, if you decide that you don't want to have to buy two different types of ammunition then I would suggest the Glock 27 (if you can handle the short grip), or the Glock 19 if you can't handle the short grip. With the 9mm you'll be able to get more trigger time with either the 19 or 26, and the ammunition will be a tad bit cheaper than the .40.

On another thread you mentioned Hickok45. I would check out his Glock models video for some more insight and help, and his Glock Fab Four video too.

If you are comfortable carrying your Glock 23, then I would say get a Glock 35. I really liked mine, and think it is enough different to be worth purchasing. If you think you could use something smaller, then get the Glock 27.

I love my Gen 2 and Gen 3 Glock 19. The G27 is good size for CCW; but, last time at the gun shop the G27 was just too small. I would get G23 based on my hand size. Currently the price of ammo, I am staying with 9mm rounds.

Like other have said, the G27 is an excellent compliment to a G23 if you like baby Glocks. I have a 22 and 23 but in handling the 27, the small grip bothers me. You just have to handle and fire one to see if it will work out for you.

How about a 19? Cheaper to shoot and it's the same size.

I've never been very comfortable with the babies. I can conceal my 23 just as easily as it's tiny counterpart and it fitsme much better.
