    Should I trade my G26 for a G27? I've had a hard time finding 9mm around here but the local stores are overstocked with .40 at decent prices. I had a Kel-tec P-40 and the recoil wasn't a problem so I don't expect any problems with the G27 recoil.

    I own both. Keep it. I love the 27 but I wouldn't trade in a 26. The 9mm round is becoming more available lately. Hang in there.

    I would keep the 26. 9mm can be found all over the internet.

    Buy a G27 and get a 9mm conversion barrel from Lone Wolf. You can shoot BOTH .40 S&W and 9mm with this set-up.

    No dont trade your G26! At least not if its based on the availability of the ammo. Shoot the G27 and if its more comfortable for you, do the trade.

    Same for me...40 ammo is much easier to find. Ideally, it would be best to hold on to the G26 and still get the G27. If forced to choose between the two...I'd stay with the G26.

    Keep the G26 and order your ammo online.

    .40 S&W is EVERYWHERE around here........same can be said for .357 SIG. As for .38 SPL, 9mm, .380 or .45 ACP.......YEA....in your wildest dreams. Good luck. I find that I shoot my .40s more often as ammo is more common. $29.98 for 100 rounds of WWB 180gr .40 S&W at my local Wally World.

    9mm is great for small guns !
    Decent stopping power, and more rounds.

    9mm shoots better for most. So, get the 27 if you need and/or want .40sw... no other reason. Me, I'll stay 9mm: Citizen: Caliber Acedemic?.

    IMHO it depends on how well you can handle the 40 cal recoil. For some it is not an issue, for me it is.
    If I were able to shoot 40 cal and 9mm equally, I would definitely opt for the 40 cal, and the 27 is an excellent weapon.

    One thing I will add, is that I've shot my mothers XD Subcompact .40, and that sucker to me, has a lot more felt recoil than my 27. 9mm is my favorite single caliber, but .40 is very, very close behind it. Try shooting a 27 before you make your decision.

    I have gone through this for about 4 months now. Flip flopping back and forth thinking about trading in my 26 for a 27 and buying conversion barrels for my 23 and 27 to shoot 9mm. I've decided it is not worth it. I like to have at least one gun in every type of major caliber for SHTF scenarios , and my 26 is the only 9mm model I own right now. I am saving up for a 27 to purchase probably sometime this year.

    Keep the 26.

    I have no ammo shortage...

    I have a reloading press :p

    Just gotta stay stocked up on primers. Everything else is reasonably easy to find, and .40 ammo only costs me time, and about $10 per box of 50.
