    I really think the Glock G27 is one of their best models.

    For the novice CC girl/guy, a 40-9mm conversion and you have a great starter gun for most folks.

    Then as you gain more experience and confidence you can step up in power to the 40.

    And finally as an accomplished shooter.
    If you find yourself longing for a little more kick in the Champagne?
    The 357 awaits.

    Truly a weapon that you can keep and grow with.

    I can agree with you that the g27 is a very good, accurate and versatile handgun. I have the OD version g27 and a black g26. I wouldn't part with either.

    I would agree that the 27 is the best subcompact Glock, of course I'm biased because it's my EDC, and really it's like 3 guns in 1. I learned to shoot with a .40 and really have had no problem adjusting, it's a great caliber IMHO.

    Exactly why I bought it. I only had it 3 weeks now but I love it. First shot out of the box at 50' was perfect! Over 100 flawless rounds so far. With a 40-9 barrel I had 2 FTE's in 17 rounds, guess I need a weaker recoil spring. I did a $.25 trigger job, Ghost 3.5 Rocket, reduced weight firing pin spring and safety plunger spring. Trigger feels amazing. Money well spent.

    Inspired by barth, soon to be my G29 (waiting to get to the LGS) seems to be taking a similar path with .357sig and .40.

    barth gave me some inputs/advise on PM, and I thank you.

    Don't tell everyone I'm nice.
    I'll lose my street cred.

    Make sure you let us know how things go.
    And we like pictures here at GT - LOL.

    A couple weeks ago I bought a few of the x-grip extensions for my G27, with the G23 mags the grip feels like heaven. I still love my G23 by the way :supergrin:

    When you close your eyes can you tell which one is in your hands?

    Just does not look like enough to get my hand around.

    Stop looking and start shooting - LOL!

    Seriously,
    the real strength in your grip comes from two fingers.
    The pinky may feel good gripping, but really doesn't do that much for you.

    I know the baby Glocks look like they might be hard to hang on too.
    They are not.

    Rent or borrow one and find out.
