    They are making everything else, I’m just not seeing the issue of concealment that others are having. Maybe I just figured out what clothes to wear? Idk..

    For me it would be like the 19X- not for concealment purposes, only for use with a compensator or threaded barrel at the very least.

    The only other benefit I see is coming out of the holster. I remember yoni used to push the 27 a lot for that reason.

    For the average consumer I guess it would come down to “comfort”...

    Personally I prefer to dress around a gun I shoot very well (G-34), not compromise on the gun for the sake of concealment unless I need to crazily low profile.

    The difference in draw time between a shorter slide and a longer slide (within reason of course), is so minimal that it isn't an issue. We're talking fractions of fractions of difference.

    Jordan, a guy that knew something about gun fights, wrote about this in one of his books. I don't remember his exact words but in a nutshell he said that longer barrel guns are not measurably slower than short barrel guns. Certainly there are reasons to pick one or the other but speed of draw isn't one of them.

    Mine looks almost exactly like this.

    If I could get a comp for my Glock 27, I would.
