    If everything was equal in terms of ammo prices, types, and both short term and long term availability, mags, parts, other costs, etc, which baby Glock would you choose- 26, 27, 33 or 39? Please don't say a G30, G23, G19, etc. or another brand. Just the baby Glocks. Thanks!

    Given those criteria I'd say a 33. Or a 39 for the big bore factor.

    I don't understand the question.

    Get whatever caliber you like. I like 9mm for carry. So, 26 :)

    G39....Biggest hole wins. Not sure why I don't have one,
    but the G27 is my current "baby", and I don't see the love
    affair ending any time soon.

    G27 or G33
    G26/G27/G33 all have the same size grips.
    G27/G33 can both run three calibers (9,357,40) with barrel & mag changes.
    I'm thinking the G27 is more popular, plentiful and sometimes cheaper.
    But either one will do the trick.

    Eh, 26 would still fit the bill. .357 sig and .45 gap might be a bit harder to control in the subcompact line. I would like to fire some .45 gap, but with the G26 I would still have 10+1 and 33 round back ups!

    My favorite is my Gen4 G26. I like it more than my M&Pc and SRc.

    Glock 26 for sure. Ammo is available forever and is inexpensiive. And 9x19 +p+ ammo is available also.

    In the sub Glocks the Glock 26 is hard to beat.

    Thanks for the replies and please remember that in this fantasy ammo for all of these is readily available, the same price, and will be forever. I'm trying to determine if cost/availability of ammo alone drives most of these choices.

    The G26 has a great reputation for power and accuracy.

    26 with no qualifiers. I have a spare 26.

    I have all but the G39, because I'm waiting it out for the Gen4 model. The larger mag catches, along with the smaller grip options (plus the extra magazine) are the key differentiating points for me.

    G26 Gen4
    G27 Gen4
    G33 Gen3

    I almost had a G39, but the slickdeals "deal" ended up being a blue label which they could only sell in-state up in Ohio, and I'm down here in Texas.

    I'd go 26 just cause I have a 34, 17, and 19 currently.

    I would have to say the G33. As others have mentioned, it can run .40 and 9mm with simple swaps and the .357 sig is a VERY fun round to shoot. I actually shoot it better than my G19.

    The one I have on now, at the library - the G39. I'm amazed at the folks that choose a particular caliber because the cost of ammo is inexpensive. My 45GAP Hydra's, Ranger's and Gold Dot's cost around $1.25/ $1.50 per round. My life, and those of my loved one's, are worth that slightly extra cost. How much is your life worth? Cheers.

    27 or 33 would be good choices.
