    Been carrying a G23, so thought I'd try a G27.

    Loaded it, set the target at 10 yds, from a muzzle down position I raised to quick double taps.

    I like the way this little thing shoots.

    Think I'll put it in carry rotation.

    (I'm no marksman, but with practice this will work)

    You should practice at the 5 yard line until they all go into one ragged hole. Most all encounters are within 5 yards, especially for civilians.
    Once you have it all together, start moving the target out until you can be sure of hitting in the zone at 15 yards.
    I do most of my shooting inside 7 yards. That's is where I will be if it is for real. At 50 feet, the better option is probably to run like hell and find cover. For a civilian.

    that's good advice

    I was just half-way shooting it today while I concentrated on the Smith 41 at 50 yds.

    But, at my age and with my vision, I will never make 10 shots into one ragged hole even at 5 yds when I'm just pointing and shooting quickly.

    I wasn't even aiming today, just raising quickly, pointing and double tapping.

    Just bought a CT laser for the G27 and put my G23 up for sale locally.

    G27 just got carry duty.:wavey:

    Use your sights. The only time you would not use your sights is in a Zimmerman/Martin situation where you basically put it up against the other guy, or you have to shoot from the hip the instant you draw. Other than that, if you have the gun up, use the sights, at least the front sight. A millisecond later hit is way better than a faster miss.

    Congrats on the 27. My wife bought me one for Christmas to go with my 23. Great shooting gun. My 27 out shoots my 23.

    Congrats on the G27. Especially with the CT grips. I have the CT grips for my G27 and my G23. Love them both.

    Perhaps I misspoke.

    I was using the front sight, but not taking the time to really focus and line it up with the rear sight like I do with the G23 or Colt CCO.

    (Note how I was grouping low, then made an adjustment to shoot higher into the chest area.)

    With the abbreviated sight plane of the G27, it was more instinctual, if that makes any sense.

    I learned from Brian Enos that the front sight is key.

    Today, I was just raising and banging two shots mainly to see how the gun felt in my hands under recoil.

    The trigger, amazingly, is as smooth as my G23 with it's 3.5lb'er and a polish job.

    I'm really impressed with the gun overall.

    I'm not gonna mess with it, just shoot the livin' fire out of it.:cool:

    Love my 27 also, but I'm not as good a shot as you! Have a few holsters but got my Supertuck in the mail today. My 22 carries nice in it also....... DOC

    Looks plenty good to me. (Point shooting essentially.) Congrats on the 27!

    You're too kind. I'm really not a "good shot", but I love to shoot!

    I have a fancy dancy custom leather pancake holster for my Colt CCO.

    Truth be known, I carry my Glocks in a junky Fobus with home-rigged leather on the paddle.

    It works perfectly for my needs. :embarassed:
