    Just curious which Glock everyone conceal carries? I currently conceal carry the 43 but thinking of purchasing the 19. Is there a big noticeable difference in conceal carrying the 19 over 43? Thanks for your feedback.

    G43 or G26. In my opinion, yes. There is a huge difference between a 43 and a 19. I carry AIWB most of the time. 43 and 26 are great for this, 19 is impossible, for me.

    Out of 6,000 civilian shootings, over 99% are 3-shots or less, 5-feet or less and 1-handed.

    I suggest you purchase the G19 and give it a try. If it doesn’t work, you still have a G43 and a G19! Or, buy it so you can wear different guns for different attire. Either way, I doubt you would regret the purchase.

    Personally, I either carry the G23 or a G17.

    G30S preferred but G43 most practical. I’d get a G36 were it Gen 4 hoping it bridges the gap between practical and most Power with least shots fired.

    Glock 43 in the summer, Glock 26 in the winter, all IWB at 4:00.

    During business hours I carry the BG .380, back right pocket holster. Outside of work it is always a Glock.

    G30S OWB in a Galco holster with a good stiff belt with a slightly loose shirt and/or jacket over it. Never had a problem printing and great availability.

    My daily carries are the 32 and 33 for backup. On duty it’s the 31 with 33 for backup.

    I've got the following Glock models and might carry-concealed any one (or two) of them:
    G43, G26, G27, G19, G23, G17, G31, G34, G30.

    To narrow it down, I'd more likely be carrying a G26, G19, or G17.

    I think you'll notice the difference between a G43 and a G19 until you get used to carrying all the time. As I also mentioned, I might even be carrying a G19 and my G43 as a backup gun. When you have the time & money, go out and buy the G19(any gen), a holster, and begin carrying it (do shoot it, too, to verify function and your own familiarity, of course).

    43, 26, 23, 19....depends on the time of year, what I'm wearing and where I have to go that day. Some days and places I have to go with something even smaller than the 43 and not carry a Glock at all...like an LCP or DB9.

    G19 gen 5 or when it's warmer out a shield. There's definitely a big difference between carrying a compact double stack and a sub compact single stack.
