    Howdy! Does anyone carry a Glock 27? Was considering buying one, but I wanted to know of your experiences with it. Please let me know how you feel about the G27.

    G27 is my carry weapon. I removed the +1 mag extension. very easy to conceal.

    I likewise have a g26, but tried shooting the g27 which, to my surprise recoil was very manageable...I dont know if the gun club here in the Downtown area has a weak load but i enjoyed shooting it.

    I have a G26 for carry and as back up to my G17. Had the chance to try a friend's G27 and was surprised with the recoil. It not as hard as I expected, more of a push to the rear compared to the snap of my G26. Some say the recoil of a G27 is more manageable than that of a G23 due to its dual recoil spring. If your are going to devote it as your carry gun then I recommend that you get one.

    i opted for the 26 as well. i figured that the lower recoil of the 9 would be better for a small package.

    it is concealable, but because it is fat, it can bulge and "print". with a single stack even a t shirt can hide it.

    Thanks for the replies. Already ordered onelast sunday. I'm just eagerly waiting for it. Will use it for EDC as well as back-up to my G22. The interchangeable mags will be a big help too. Thanks for all your relies.

    Knowing that you already have a G22, with more reason that I recommend you get a G27 as your CCW and back up to your G22. Much as I would also like to carry a G27, I settled with the G26 considering that I regularly shoot production using a G17. Its prudent practice to have consistency with the ammos and magazines our Glocks. My G26 hides well uder my barong using a Milt Sparks or Sidearmor IWB holster. Glad to be of help Panyero.:)

    Neil, thank you too. Actually, that was the biggest consideration, the fact that the mags of the G22 and the G27 are interchangeable. At least I can carry with the regular mag, and then just have a G22 mag with +2 as spare. Siguro naman okay na yun. And yes, I agree with you that we should be consistent with the ammo we use for practice and carry. I guess this is the best compromise. I really wanted to use the G22 for everyday carry. However, due to its size, its not really practical unless you're an LEO. Thanks again!:)
