    Been debating between a 26 and a 27, so I rented a G26 Gen3 from a local range and gave it a shot. They didn't have a 27 rental.

    I like the 26, a lot. I wish they had a 27 for me to try out. I'm in Indianapolis, so if anyone wants to let me shoot theirs the next time, hit me up! =)

    Sorry about the blurry pics, taken with my Evo.

    Glock 26 Gen 3, 10 rounds per target, @ 20 ft.

    Hit the bullseye on my FIRST SHOT EVER with a Glock,
    I was very pleased with that.

    Nice shooting! The G27 and, G33 are just as accurate IMO.

    I can't speak to the G27, but the 26 is quite an accurate little pistol. Mine really likes 147 gr ammo.

    Good shooting on the first time to shoot that gun. I'd recommend that you try the G36 before buying. Mine shoots very good and I can't tell much difference in recoil and muzzle flip from that of a .40 cal.

    Good shooting there...looks like you have to shoot the G27 to find out for sure. They are both great pistols for your arsenal.

    Nice group dj! The subcompacts are nice. I have the g27 and love it. You will have a round advantage with the 26 if you like the 9mm. They are both great shooters and will do everything their big brothers will at self defense distances. Have fun!

    Have you seen Hockok45's GLOCK 27 videos on Youtube yet? I don't have one yet, but he makes me want one.

    Two words: twenty six

    .40 deserves a full frame. So does your wrist.

    IMO the main reason for a 27 is if your full sized weapon is a .40.

    I've shot a friend's several times. With 180gr bullets going around 950fps (the classic FBI load) the model 27 is not much of a challenge to shoot. With some of the nuclear loads in vogue right now that push the limits of the .40, its a handful.

    I own a G26 and I shoot it very well and it's easy to shoot, but I shot a G27 for the first time recently and I really liked it. But in the end, the differences are so minor in 9mm vs. .40, so just pick whatever works for you (whether that be accuracy, price in ammo, etc).

    i have shot both the 26 and 27 and feel a tougher snap from the 27 from the recoil. I can put more rounds accurately with the 26 than with the 27 because of that that. With the calibers so close in stopping power the choice was easy for me.

    Excited to hear your experience. Good shooting so far

    I had a G19, didn't care for it, shot real low. Got rid of it, 6 months later bought a G26 and it is my absolute favorite. Shoots right on the money. I also have a G30 now and its spot on as well.
