Howdy,
Getting a Gen 4 Glock 27 soon, thought it would be good to get with some like-minded individuals on here. I've shot Glocks a bunch, but this is my first one I've owned. I'm in the Fort Bragg area if anyone knows any good shooting spots. This will be my first .40 cal, if anyone could suggest a couple good practice and carry rounds that would be much appreciated as well. Looking forward to being on the forum.

Welcome! Been carrying the G27 for around 2 years now. Love it! Loved it even more one I got a crossbreed holster. Lots of good info here.

I like the 180 grain UMC FMJ for practice (250 round box) from WalMart. For carry - Speer Gold Dot 165 grain JHP- are supposed to be the best!

Any name brand hollow point is good for self-defense. I carry 165gr Winchester Ranger Ts. For practice, I use 165gr FMJ; I've got CCI Blazers and Federal American Eagles on hand right now. Both are good, but again, most any name brand should be fine. Personally, I like practicing with the same weight as my carry round.

Got the Glock

Got the Glock 27 yesterday, really like it. Will shoot it Friday, wife set up a shooting date for us. Got a Defensive Concealment Kydex Holster, great retention and concealment, carried it today and it's very comfortable. http://www.defensiveconcealment.com/...lster/#reviews
Got the Wal-Mart UMC 250 rnd box for practice and Speer Gold Dots for carry.
Ordered a Glock Factory +2 mag extension and that works well to improve grip.
