Good point here- Practicing both ways is a good idea. I actually keep one magazine stock and one with the PG-30 in my glove box. The shorter mag goes in most of the time when I'm just tossing the G-27 into a pants pocket, while the mag with extension goes in if I'm tossing it in an IWB. Either way, the 27 is my "quickie" CCW. If circumstances and apparel permit, I generally have my 23 on me. But the G27 gets a lot of work if I'm just making a quick stop for an errand on a week-day, as opposed to being "out and about" on the weekends.Guess I'll give the contrary opinion. I have very large hands, but I've intentionally focused on learning to shoot the Baby Glock as well as possible without any extentions. Makes it much more convenient to carry, either in the pocket or in a holster.
Try it, you might like it.
You've really got to push it or use a mag loader with the Glock +2. They gave me one when they swapped out the mags for my 27. It now rides on a 22 mag, so I have a 17 round backup magazine when I'm carrying my 27.These give you a little more grip than the Pearce: http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct/?productNumber=397818
They are made by GLOCK and are +2...although I can only get 11 in mine:supergrin: It's basically the same as mentioned by 'elde' but you get a complete mag...and you can never have enough of those!
The GAP floor plate doesn't extend the grip at all (if that's your intentions).
