    Either are great! Depends on you're needs. The G27 is easily concealable. Since you have large hands, you may want to consider ordering the finger groove extension or a magazine extension. Both are available here;

    i have a g27, and if your going to carry inside the waistband i say get the g23, it's not all that much bigger.

    I have the G30. While it is a pretty "meaty" little gun, I like it. I have had good luck with it at the range. Also, I was shopping for a G26 a couple of years ago and ended up going with the S&W M&P9c. Very comparable to that G26 / G27 platform.

    I've got a 27 and like it. The difference in grip length does make a difference in concealibility between the 27 and 23 (which I also have). The 27 is typically carried just to the right of zipper (appendix carry?) while the 23 is carried strong side IWB.
    Get both.

  8. I have had a G23 for 10 years +. Love it. both are fantastic, you can't go wrong with either (or both!)

    Last year, site unseen, I ordered the G27 (also with CT grips)
    when it got in, I didn't like the "2 finger" grip on the G-27,
    so I got a mag extension...at that point - it was basically the same size as my G23 anyway...

    traded it in for another Smith snubbie with CT grips...try before you buy, if you can!

    I have both the 23 and 27's. Just depends on what you want and how much concealement you want. I can carry my 26 or 27 in a Kramer Pocket Holster in my front pocket or a jacket pocket. I have to have a finger extension on the mag, because I have a big set of meat hooks. If I carry in the waistband, I'd probably go with a 19 or 23. Like I said, just depends on what you want.

  10. Go with the G23. Great carry gun and is also a great range gun. The two fingered grip on the 27 gets old after a hundred rounds or so and as said above, the G27 with finger grip on the magazine makes it a G23 anyway. I carry in a holster outside the waistband most of the time but when summer comes, IWB carry is prudent. I use a summer comfort IWB holster and the G23 hides just fine.
