Was browsing the usd guns at a local gunshop, and saw a 36. I asked to see it, as it looked new. I had to have it, the serial number ---036! Walked up and ran 100 rounds down range and it performed just like it should. Thin easy to conceal and the best fight stopping round made IMHO. My off duty carry has been a 36 for some time now, but yes I still love my 27's.
