New to me glock 21

I haven't bought a glock in two years. So sad i know. While browsing yesterday I looked at a few glocks on consignment. I picked up a gen 3 g-21 otd for 400$ it looks very lightly used previous owner either didn't shoot it much or was picky about keeping it clean. Does anyone here use a g-21 for concealed carry. I just ordered a seemingly pretty nice iwb from Winthrop holsters.

New to me glock 21

I have carried them openly while on private land, but they are a bit too big for my 5'8", 160 lb frame to conceal.

I did with my G20 which is the same size. Its too big for daily carry unless I am outside in the woods or wearing a coat. I lke the gun better for woods use where open carry is much more comfortable.

I concealed a G21 daily for about a year IWB with a crossbreed supertuck deluxe , nonissues. I'm 5'8", 150 lbs and slim. I recently switched to a government sized 1911 because I prefer the slimmer profile...

I love my G21. It is not a concealed carry weapon in my opinion. It fills the "service pistol" role.

That said, I purchased mine to have an example of the full size Glock and am very happy with it. I love the capacity and soft recoil.

I am sure that some have successfully carried one concealed. It's just not for me.

It is difficult to conceal a G21. They are nice guns and very reliable.

A G30 is MUCH easier to conceal and you still can have 10 rounds.

A G19 is another nice choice if you like 9mm.

Yup. I used to..With Trijicon HD sights. Still have it. Love that darn thing. I have a +2 on the mag too so it was 16 in the gun and 2 spare mags, back when I worked in Liberty City.

Now I carry a Glock 19, have been for the past year. Also with Trijicon HD sights and 2 spares.
