Glock 23 or Glock 27 for CCW?
Depends, if you live where you can only have a 10rd mag, then you might as well have the smaller 27. Otherwise I like Spray & Pray #23
I vote full-size or compact over sub compact for primary carry.
Glock 23 SC?
The G23 to me offers all the advantages of the G22 with the added bonus of being more concealable. The G27 however just feels weird and I am not comfortable shooting it enough to say I would carry it over a 23.
I carry either or. In the winter the 23 is fine and I can carry it without printing. I prefer the 27 in the warmer months just because it conceals nicely IWB with just a light button down shirt. I will say that depending on your frame you may have a hard time IWB or OWB carrying either one because on smaller people they both tend to stock or grip print when seated unless you have on a jacket.
Performance-wise either is a winner.
As for my frame, I'm 5' 7", 165 lbs..
Actually I would prefer the Glock 23 ported
Please, Don't tell me about how the extra muzzle flash is gonna make it so's I can no longer retain my nite vision. Instead, shoot a 40S&W at night, then tell me how great your nite sight is
G23 or G27
I had the G19 and went to the G23. Will never trade it or sell it. Hits hard and grouping is more than adequate from point blank to 12 yards.
I am a short guy and can easily hid ethe G23 where a full sized is tuff to hide
Damned be all those experts with countless thousands of hours of training and experience!
****I could use those vise grips to remove that 1/2" bolt, even though a box end wrench is better suited for the task.........
I have a 27 I bought for carrying in light clothes during summer months. My next will be a Gen 4 23...I really like the 23 as an all around gun.
My guess is the 27 is going to be a much better choice for you. I would test it out. Even the bigger stores will let you get a feel for a firearm and they usually have a holster or two handy. I would guess you will print the 23.
I'm actually leaning heavily toward getting the G27 for just that reason. Now, New Year's Resolution: Find the funds to buy one.
No. With the proper holster, he wouldn't.
I've got a buddy his size that carries a ruger p90. And that's one chunky ass pistol.
Sometimes I carry a 5" 1911 or a G20.
What holster? I'm 5'11" 225 and I can't carry a full-size IWB or OWB without printing in warm weather. I wish I could. It sucks waiting for jacket/coat season to carry something full-size.
Ill ask him, but its likely a crossbreed supertuck.
I use AKJ Concealco LLC - Concealment gun holsters, personal defense related equipment, and other gunleather.
I would vote for the g23 as well. I had a sub-compact for years and it didnt bother me at first but after a while its like my hands grew too big if that makes any sense. Anyway, after holding the compact like the g23, i fell in love, its like the perfect size for me plus its still conceal friendly.
My current pistol is a chunky Sigma SW9VE.
I like my 27 for two reasons. I got a crazy deal on it and I have a conversion barrel for it so I can run 9mm. Total package was around $400 with Bianchi IWB and mags for 40 and 9.
Glock 23 .
