    I know this is an old over asked question but I need some help. Due to work being slow I plan on just keeping my Buckmark 22lr and one Glock.....need the $.
    I plan on keeping either my G26 or G27. The 22lr is shot alot at the range, the Glock isnt lately. I need a ccw,housegun,and mostly a trail gun for hiking alot.
    Which would you guys keep the 26 or 27?

    I shoot the 26 a bit better, but I keep thinking the 27 would be better for the woods and ccw........

    For me it would be the 26. No reason other than I have just never been a big fan of the fautey. The nine will do the job if you do yours. It has less recoil and is less expensive to shoot, so you could get more range time given that economics is an issue. Of course, if you shoot one significantly better than the other that is also a big factor.

    Tough one. You won't go wrong either way.

    Different strokes...I suspect you prefer one over the other. Pick it.

    I'd keep the G26.

    But then, I'd sell something else that's not a gun first.....boat, motorcycle, jet ski, guitar, golf clubs.....etc.

    Considering part of your issue is funding, consider the cost of ammunition. I would keep the 9mm over the .40 S&W on that basis alone...

    I am a huge supporter of the .40. I personally think that in the 155-165 and select 135 flavor it really out shines the 9mm. However, the 9x19 is a solid cartridge. Nearly every thing the 9mm does the .40 does a little better. Anything you can do with a 40 you can probably do with a 9mm. I like the heavier bullet and fast velocity of 155 and 165 40 rounds, but I would probably keep the G26 if I was you. On the other hand you could sell the 26 and buy a 40-9 conversion barrel and there you have a 9mm for the range and a 40 for carry. Boom I fixed your problem.

    OR......

    You could sell both and buy a Glock 23. Perfect size for HD/CCW/WDC. Then pick up a 40-9 barrel for it. You will probably get anywhere from 400-450 for each pistol you sell, that gives you a profit of about 300 when all is said and done.

    They are both awesome, that would be a hard choice. Go with your gut on this one and then pm me the selling price on the one you choose to part with. Good luck.

    I'd keep the 26, but both are worth keeping.

    26. Ammo is cheaper, and you be able to shoot it more often.

    My vote is for the 26. For every 1000 rounds of 9mm, your only going to be able to shoot 500-600 .40 rounds. Also, the 9mm does will do everything you need it to with some mean Winchester Rangers in the tube. Like the +P+ variety, 124 gr. I do alot of hiking in the WA state cascade region, and every hike I bring my Glock 19, 9mm in an open carry fashion. I feel like it is capable enough to defend myself from bad people as well as cougars or raccoons. Maybe not cut out for an angry black bear, but those are few and far between. And in that case, I am thinking a .40 would fall short as well. Regardless, I carry one magazine of HP and another FMJ when hiking, just in case.
