Actually I agree. I believe for CC the 27 (for those that can't, or choose not to, handle the 29/30) is perfect. A lot of people will tell you that it doesn't hold as many rounds as the 9mm and doesn't have the power of the .45. However I turn it around and say that it holds more rounds than the 36 and has more power than the 9mm.
It's kind of like the V6 engine. Four-cylinders usually get better fuel economy, V8's usually have more power. The V6 (in the right package) is the best of both worlds, and can handle most jobs people would need it for and still gets pretty good gas milage.

Since my post, I have tried both the 26 and the 36. I went with the 36.The 36 just carry so much better than the 26, the 26 is just too fat for my EDC. To date I have fired around 1000 rounds thru it and it went bang each time I pulled the trigger.

Tough call. I like both calibers and both guns. The G26 and G36 are currently the only Glocks I own. Get both!

Just to clarify, you have had zero malfunctions with it?

No problems with my 36. I, too, found the 26 to be too fat.

I remember the saying, "In cold weather, the .45 is king." I think there is a lot of truth to that as far as the bullet defeating heavy clothing. I have a Shield in 9mm, but I'm looking at buying a M&P 45C for these cold-assed Iowa winters.

OP, from the fact that you ask this question, I would take that you are a novice or intermediate shooter. Nothing wrong with being a novice of course, we all had to start somewhere.

In that case I would strongly suspect the the G26 will be slightly easier to learn to master than the G36.

Guys, y'all need to actually read the posts, he got the 36.
OP, congrats. I actually like the 36. If the Gen 4 36 comes out I'll look at it hard.
P.S. I'm STILL waiting for the 36SF...

They are within .05" of each other in width.

The g36 is almost identical in size to a g19.

I used to own a g36. My g23 is the same size and holds twice as much ammo.

to me it came down to grip thickness and how it feels..I think the slightly thinner single stack grip was what made me like the 36...if it was Glock 23 size or bigger id not like it either(just as I didnt like my Glock 23 's grip..just to big and thick and always seemingly off centerline in my hand(and I wear a size L glove its not like I have small hands)

I think the 36 is going to be seen more favorable in the eyes of a person used to carrying a 1911 of some flavor, as opposed to a person who carrys (or wants to carry) Glocks.
I personally own a 36, and have probably carried it more than any other Glock. Lately I've been carrying my 27 almost everyday. I like them both.

I like my 36 but then again you have limited rounds. My 26 I always carry glock 17 mag as back up. On long distance trips I even pack one glock 18 mag. With the 36 you just stuck with limited rounds. By the way "Stopping Power" is a myth.

No it's not a myth. Ask someone who has been hit with a 45 slug and see what he says.

It would probably be hard to speak with most of them...

If you are concerned about 9mm stopping power then get a Glock 33 plus a 9mm conversion barrel. That way you get the stopping power of a .357 Sig combined with the inexpensive practice cost of a 9mm.
