I was considering the G27 or XDS too. Went with the XDS. I prefer .45 and the 6 round mag doesn't bother me. 6 in the gun and a 7 round mag of .45 acp in my pocket will do the trick. I also like the grip safety plus the darn thing is the exact same size as my PT709 Slim 9mm.....no new holster needed. Conceals very well. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
