REMORA everyday everyway love it
Greetings all. I have a Glock 23 for quite some time now and I just bought a concealed holster and it feels like this gun is not concealable. Can any of you guide me to the best concealed holster for a Glock 23? I would prefer one that goes just inside the pants. Thanks!
IMHO the G23 is not very concealable, there are some good holsters out there that'll improve but I am unable to conceal my brother's G19 at all almost with the wide variety of holsters. You might consider trading for a 27 and using a cozy partner holster. Extremely concealable and comfortable
Though I can't comment specifically (I don't own a glock) I can say I like my blackhawk I have for my m9. I have no problem concealing it. And its a bigger gun than most. But it all depends on how big you are physically. I'm big so obviously I can probally get away with a less slim set up.

For IWB carry with my Glocks, I use several older Blade-Tech holsters (not sure of the model, or if that model is still made), and a Vanguard 2 from Raven Concealment Systems.
Not sure what you meant by "not concealable", but many folks have trouble with the grip pushing out to the rear on their clothes when they carry a larger pistol. With any large-gripped handgun, to assist with concealment, many experienced shooters/instructors recommend angling the butt forward and the muzzle to the rear. If your handgun is pointed straight down at the ground when holstered, the butt sticks-out to the rear the maximum amount, and tends to "print" on your cover garment; with it angled so the base of the grip is almost directly above the end of the slide, you will minimize this rearward projection. It takes a bit of practice to get used to this angle, but it is worth the increase in concealment, in my opinion.
Here is a link to an online concealment holster article that you may find helpful:

I agree with DJ Niner, with the GLOCK 19/23 I find it easier to conceal IWB at an angle. IMO clothing also has apart if someone will print or not while carrying.
My crossbreed conceals my 23 with no problems. It helps that I'm 6'3" and 350lbs.
