I have had a Glock 27 for 10 years and love it. I have never been recoil sensitive, but yesterday I shot a newly acquired Gock 26. WOW! It shot like a dream and was very pleasant in the recoil department. I never realized how much my 27 recoiled until I shot the 26. my shot recovery time was much faster with the 26 and it was just as accurate. I may switch to the Glock 26 for off-duty and backup carry. It makes sense because our duty weapon is the Glock 17 so the mags will fit in the G-26.
