Guys, I have a few glocks, in different sizes and calibers. But what I wanted to know is, what is the most popular size/caliber that you would carry as concealed? And it doesn't have to be a mini glock, though it could be. What size/caliber do you guys normally carry? I switch mine up all the time, and I can't find a favorite one! This is what I have:

The Glock 19/23/32 frame is the absolutely perfect size for occasions when one can carry something larger than a J frame. It's no harder to carry than the 26 or 27, and yet more compact than many other full sized 9x19 chambered pistols.

Second the 19. Perfect blend of being small enough to conceal but large enough to shoot well and holds 16 rounds of fairly potent ammo. If I could only keep one of my pistols for defense, it would be the Glock 19 with my 642 as a close second.
I had a 26 and a 27 and got rid of both of them as they were no easier to conceal than the 19, held less rounds, and were harder to shoot as well.
I've got a 21sf that I like a lot, but it wouldn't be near my first choice for summer carry.

I haven't used the ones you own except for the 19. I carry a 26 if deeper concealment is preferable, and a 23 if it's not (there isn't a huge difference between them, but sometimes the extra inch of grip catches the shirt tail). I use a CTAC slide holster so I don't have to change holsters if switching guns which is nice.

Glock 30 all the way. It is compact, holds 10+1 or 13+1 depending on how you want to carry, and is a soft shooting, accurate, wonderful little gun.
That is my vote.
I also have the Glock 21, but that is for the nightstand.

That is to much of a personal preference. What caliber do you like?

For me its the Glock 19 - I have no trouble concealing it with an OWB belt holster. Plenty of rounds to sling and I have no problems with 9mm.

The compact Glocks are the best. The G19/23/32 is IMO the PERFECT size for a compact pistol. I don't see how HK could call the USPc a compact.

Of the three listed, the 19. Of any Glock, the 26 or 27.

I have a 19 and a 30. I carry either one as they are pretty close in size. I just need to pick up a good IWB holster for the G30 sometime here soon.

I have a 19 and a 26. In the summertime when the ankle holster is the best option I go with the 26. Otherwise I usually carry the 19 in a belt holster.

Glock 36 hides easy shoots great.

I used to have a 23...now have a 17, a 17L, a 20 OD, and this little 26.
All are carried concealed (no, not at the same time), but this little fellow is my favorite easy hider. The short grip makes it simple.
I carry this 17 in this BearClaw holster a bunch
