First of all, if there's a better place to post these questions, please let me know! New member here, up in the Seattle area; I shot a fair amount as a kid with my dad mostly rifles and shotguns but some small-caliber handguns too and now with the kids out of the house, Im a proud owner of a new Glock 27. Shot a number of handguns in my search process and chose the 27 because of its concealable size, reputation for quality and minimal frills, and larger-caliber stopping power (which hopefully Ill never have to exercise). The grip fits me pretty well but Im still experimenting with the backstraps. Looking forward to learning a lot here. Ive gone through the manual in detail and will do so again, but I do have some questions and if anyone cares to chime in, feel free. - The cleaning/maintenance schedule seems to have a very high CYA factor (from Glocks perspective) to it, and I cant imagine a gun like this, typically in my glove box or in a nightstand, needing anywhere near such a heavy cleaning/maintenance schedule. I can see how regular on-person concealed carry could warrant more cleaning, with lint and dust and etc. Otherwise, though . Thoughts? - Looking for recommendations on some top holster/carry options, too - I plan to get night-sights on it thatll show up better, you know in the dark! - Gotta say, I do NOT get the rationale behind the Glock safety feature double trigger mechanism. At the end of the day, its still a trigger that, when pulled, fires the gun. Its not a big deal to me because I plan to be the only one wholl ever have access to this gun, but really, whats the point, maybe other than to make that first trigger-pull a little difficult, maybe, for small hands (and of course, thats barely a safety feature at all). Why dont they just sell their models with a standard trigger and say theres no safety on the gun? And really, I do look forward to some enlightenment here because I figure Im missing something. Im here to learn; thanks all for any assistance you care to provide! :embarassed: (And yes, that is an actual photo of my face....) Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
