I have been carrying a 26 for a couple of years now. I like my 26 just want something with more power. I have looked at the 27, 33 and 39 but have never shot a 357 Sig or 45 GAP before. Plus I think I can still use my 26 holsters with the 27, 33 and 39. Also thought about the 30S or a 357 mag revolver. I'm a smaller guy too so can't get nothing real big.
