    G23C or G26 - it just depends on the amount of room i have to spare IWB, tucked in shirt, suit vs. jeans, etc.

    I have 3 on my permit, A Kimber Pro BP Ten II .45ACP it is a polymer framed double stack holding ten rounds, A springfield XD .40 S&W, and a 2" Rossi in .357 Mag. The revolver is the gun i carry when I dont feel like carrying a gun. My only issue with Wheel guns is capacity.

    I don't have a CCP yet but once I get one I'll be carrying either a full size Springfield 1911, a 9mm Glock19, or a .38Spl Ruger LCR.

    I have several but don't carry often anything from ruger alaskan in 454 to a 25 colt auto.
     
  6. Handguns, shotguns, carbines, SBS's, SBR's, AOW's, you name it, I've carried it.

    I am looking to purchase my 1st CCW. Would you recommend the G27 or the G30.
    I was leaning towards the 30.

    How about "it depends" for a lame answer? The 27 is smaller and easier to conceal. The 30 has a larger ammo capacity (9+1 versus 10+1). However, ammo for the 30 is more expensive than the 27. From personal experience, I find the 30 easier to shoot accurately and I have no difficulty carrying it concealed.

    I recommend finding a gun range where you can rent each, shoot a couple hundred rounds through each and buy the one that you are more comfortable with.

    Yep - you never when you might have to defend yourself against a light-infantry platoon.

    Thanks RickD6023
    How does the 30 SF compare to the 27?
    I think I prefer the .45 ACP over the .40 S&W.
    I have read hundreds of articles, but like you said, grab it ,shoot it, and go from there. Thanks for the advice.
    P.S. I was stationed at George AFB back in 86-87.

    I was in the 20TFTS training Germans to fly the F-4E at that time (84-88) and then in the Academic squadron as a civilian contractor through 91.

    The only time I handled a 30SF and a 36 I felt that it was too narrow for my paw.
