    Just for talks, what's your .40 and on what competition have you used it?

    I have only shot IDPA with mine, but hope to try some other comps this summer.

    Going to my first local match tonight. Will try to use my 9mm conversion if they let me, but have my .40 barrel ready for my G27.

    I just use my .40's in my local IDPA style matches, IDPA like in rules and all, just not "official".

    If I had to pick one round to own, it would be the .40.

    G35 (loaded minor) - IDPA - SSP and ESP, USPSA Production, Steel Challenge, Knock Down Steel, Action Steel (Pro Am style)
    (I have shot Major for Limited and L10, but prefer the heavier STI for this)

    STI (wide body) build by Millennium Custom - USPSA Limited and L-10, Knock Down Steel

    STI (single stack) home build - USPSA Limited-10 and Single Stack, IDPA ESP, Steel Challenge, Knock Down Steel, Action Steel.

    Admittedly, the 9mm is better for the steel challenge as it can be downloaded even further when there is no minimum power factor, so it's more common for me to use the 9s for this. However, at the "minor" loading (IDPA and USPSA Production), I feel the .40 shoots softer than the 9mm. However, it does cost a bit more to shoot even when reloading, and bullets always go up in price, never down.

    My .02.

    IDPA Marksman remains a challenge for me with my G27. I achieved Marksman with my G17 about a month ago, and have been trying since, with the OEM .40 barrel in my G27. I'm getting closer, but recovery time is longer than with 9mm.

    I'm finding I get quite a few "keyholes" using WWB 165 gr. May have 3 or 4 during a 90 round "Classifier".

    I used to shoot mainly 40, and used two G23s (Gen 2 and Gen3) & a 40 Hi Power for most of my local club IDPA matches; and back when, a G24 a few times. We also ran local combat matches where those pistols did well. The G23 and Hi Power both have their own strong points.

    I started IDPA in January this year. My G22 was the best candidate and I improved my shooting and SD abilities and mindset pretty quickly. As I took to the sport I picked op a new G34 and a better holster. I'm still moving up and for my 9/7 birthday I got a Lee reloading setup that I'm about to load my first 9mm 'match' rounds through. Project 1 - equal or better my current 9mm competition ammo. Then SD 40 - then 223 / 5.56. After that...

    Onward!

    I shoot my G31 wit my OEM 22 barrel in at at my local IDPA. Also shoot it as 357sig which is my favorite. I don't shoot 9mm unless it is my Dads 17 so I am just used to the flip associated with the 40. With a fully-rolled-over wrist lock grip I can get follow ups on target in a timely manner

    what are your repeat hit times, on the 10" vitals circle, at say, 5 yds? If they aint sub .20 second, it's not so "timely".

    I shot a couple IDPA matches and both outdoor and indoor GSSF matches using my Gen 3 G22.

    It's stock, expect for a factory (-) connector and Trijicon HD sights, which I LOVE for competition.

    Ok Jerry Miculek!

    It is just as fast as I can at that distance with my Dad's 17 or with my G21. Yes it has more muzzle flip... Still a good caliber. Obviously sales show that!
