    I'm torn as to what I should get to replace my stolen G27.

    Here are the options...G26, G36, SP101, or another G27.

    I liked my G27, and I've got a ton of ammo for it. I've been thinking of a G36, to simplify my ammo supply, since my HD gun is a G30SF. But then....45s have been hard to find, lately. Which has tempted me to sell/trade the G30SF for a G22 or 35. But then, I've been contemplating switching to 9mm...since my wife would be able to control it better if she ever needed to use it.

    The reason the SP101 is on the list is because I loved the one I had. I traded it for the G27, but lately I've missed that gun. I wish I could just buy them all...

    Considering your wife, I would opt for the G26.

    My wife will go no where near my .40s. I have a G26 with an AA 22lr. conversion kit for my wife to practice with. I normally have her shoot some 100-200 rounds in 22lr. and then finish up with another 50-100 rounds of 9mm.

    G26. Your wife will be more comfortable with it.

    My wife and both my daughters (in their 20s) love to shoot my G26.

    My wife's shot my G30 a few times, and while she'd use it if she had to, she hates shooting it. Something like a G34, or any other 9mm, would definitely be more manageable for her.

    As far as my carry gun goes, she'd never need shoot it so I don't worry about recoil because I don't have a problem controlling the .40. I know there's quite a difference in recoil between a G26 and a 27, but how much of a difference is there between the larger 17/34 and 22/35?

    Go for the 26, the 27 is snappy. The 26 would be more managable for the ladies.

    Glock 29sf... FWIW... I just replaced my m27 with it... Thought it was gonna have more recoil but I said what the heck and got the 10mm anyway... Well I shot some 180gr buffalo bore and if you ask me it feels like it has less recoil... Maybe its just a different kind of recoil... Just doesnt feel as snappy as the 27... Im very happy with the switch...

    Looks like I'd also buy another 27.

    When or if you wife wants to shoot 9mm, just get a drop in conversion barrel. Problem solved!

    If you on the other hand want to go the other way and want more of a "bang" so to speak, get your self a drop in .357SIG conversion barrel (and you can use the same mags).

    So in short, if you get another 27...you can fire 9mm, .40, and .357SIG (and .22lr I believe). Everyone's happy! :) Good luck, and sorry to hear that your baby got stolen.

    My advice to anyone that sells a gun to buy another, is to not do it again.

    No more problem

    I will highly recommend the G26 if you want the wife to be able to shoo it well
    I'm not saying that she can't handle the G27 as my wife first Glock was the G27

    Not really one of the pistols you mentioned, but what do you think of a G19. That way your wife can shoot the more comfortable 9mm, and many people feel like they have more control with the more complete feeling grip of the G19.

    Actually, I like the idea mentioned above, of getting a G23 and then a 9mm barrel and magazines, too.

    get a G26, its been hard to find .45's around here but .40 and 9mm its regularly on shelves so what I did was to get a G21SF with about 2300rds total, I also got a G35 and I get the ammo as I go to the range since I can find that any time. just recently pick up a G17 gen4 and 2300rds, that way I cover the posibility of always finding ammo.
