    It is a common back-up gun in departments that issue the 22. Most articles only talk about the primary weapon so it doesn't get much press.

    Our detectives are issued (if wanted) G27s.

    One day while visiting the parents in Chicago, I was talking to a deputy at a burger joint. He had a G23 on his hip and a G27 in an ankle holster.

    Depending on their assignment, FBI agents carry them.

    My local Special Agent carries one every day and talked me into mine.

    I have started carrying my 27 for EDC. I think the 27 is really gaining in popularity as I see more and more mention of it in the rags.

    Good to hear the 27 is getting some props...When I started looking for a small carry weapon I knew I wanted a caliber with some substance and did not want a new caliber so it was between .40 and .45. I remembered talk years ago about baby glocks, after lots of research I went out and got my first glock the G27. Very happy with this choice.

    The G27 has always seemed to be a decent seller when it came to LE/Gov sales.

    I've seen a number of our folks choose them. I've also seen some folks from other agencies and the occasional non-LE/private citizen choose them.

    I've seen more G26's chosen as personally-owned off-duty weapons, though, even among users/owners of larger .40 pistols.

    I chose the G26 myself, after quite a bit of experience with both the G26 and the G27.

    I still ended up picking up a G27, though, if only because I came across a deal which was too good to let slip.

    After having fired more than 10,000 rounds through both the G26 & G27, I'd still choose the G26 if I were going to have to choose between them for whatever reason.

    I don't have to choose, though, so I'll continue to keep the G27 as well as the G26.

    Suit yourself. I do. ;)

    I carried a G27 as a back up when a was a patrolman back in 1996. I carried a G23 as my primary siearm. I now carry a G26 as a back up and a Sig229 in .40.

    The 27 is a great backup. I still have to slow down to get it into action as fast as my 30. My hands are too big I suppose. They are very accurate as well.

    G27 is a pretty standard backup gun / plain clothes / off-duty gun for police and federal officers that otherwise carry the G22 or G23.
