    I need to start by saying several years ago I was completely against Glock and could not understand why anyone would want a plastic gun. Fast forward to today when I own several and the newest pup in the litter is a G27. I have a G26 that I carried for awhile but here in Montana we wear down vests from Sept to June and I was concerned about stopping power. The G30 was a 2nd attempt but it seemed so boxy and I wasn't carrying it very often. So I used my expiring GSSF certificate for a night sight G27, bought a cheap Galco IWB holster and a pair of Blackhawk mag pouches.

    Took it to the range and ran 200 rounds of Federal 155gr HP though it and at 10 yards kept them in the A-B-C rings of a D1 (tombstone) target from a low ready. Next range trip will be with a timer to test draws as I have a Blackhawk shoulder holster and a Blackhawk paddle holster as well as the Galco to try. I don't wear it very often but I have an IDPA vest to try as a concealment garment.

    Just took the armorers class now the question is what do I get to go with a 17, 26, 21, 21C, 30, 24, 24C and the 27. I'm thinking about a 22RTF2 because I am not a fan of the Gen 4.

    Congrats. I love my G27 but it's not for everyone. A bit snappy and can be punishing on the hand after lots of rounds.

    My thoughts also. I carry mine still but not a fun range gun.

    Congrats on your new G27! Mine was my first, and was my dedicated EDC until getting a little rest this winter since I rotated carrying my G30.

    Accurate, small, easy to conceal, G27...what's not to like?!? :supergrin:

    Congrats!!! Got my first Glock (23) a few weeks ago and I've already ordered #2 (27). I love'em!!!!!!
  7. I carry a G27 as my off duty piece and when we qualify we are required to us departmental mags with flat bottoms (I use Pearce grip with no extentions on mine) I find it's harder to hold on to w/o the Pearce grip, but not to the point I would get rid of the gun.
