    If it's between a G26 or a G27 which one would you choose. I already have a G36 and a G21SF.

    26 with some Gold Dot 124+p or Win Rangers. Cheap to practice with and light to carry.

    You can't go wrong either way, I chose the 26 since I have a 19 as well. As mentioned above, the ammo is a lot cheaper too.

    Always 9mm, especially as the gun get's smaller.

    I was in the same dilemma and ended up choosing the 26. My reason was for the extra rounds it could hold and ammo was cheaper. Good luck with your choice! I'm sure you'll be happy either way.

    Guess I'll go against the grain and say the 27. I prefer the extra punch of the 40. But you can still get pretty darn close with a 9 and some good ammo. I just happen to think 40 is just right in feel. Plus you can always get an x-grip for another 2 rounds.

    And a back up magazine helps as well. I always carry one.

    Just my experience... But I started off carrying a G27 cause I wanted the .40 power... But I ended up getting into a G26 because I could put more rounds on target both quicker and more accurately... but your results may vary.. :)

    That's a good point. I haven't shot the 26, but I would imagine you would have increased accuracy.

    If you only had to choose between the three models. I would say the 27. You can convert to 9mm and 357 sig with a barrel swap.

    I agree. But having a 33 and a 36 (which you have) I find the slimmer 36 better for IWB conceal/carry.

    G27,I got 6.180gr sxt with a 2 G22 mags as back up is a potent package.In 9mm a G26 with 147gr sxts and 2 G17 mags as a back up is cool also.I don't have a G26 though.'08.

    I live in FL as well, so I know what you're thinking with the heat, but my opinion is, unless you have tiny hands like that guy in the burger king commercials some time ago, get either a G19 or a G23. Once you put finger extensions on the subcompact (which most people do) the grip (where it would print) is basically the same size as the bigger frame, but you have sacrificed sight radius and barrel length, and capacity.

    As for which caliber, I would say shoot both and make your own decision, how someone else shoots it will mean absolutely nothing to you.

    The most versatile way to go would be to get a G23, and buy a 357 sig barrel and a 9MM conversion barrel and it will be like having 3 guns in one.

    Just my $0.02

    Side note- If you ever start shooting outside the static range, and on the move, you will quickly realize how hits where you want/need them are much more important that how big the bullet is.

    I carry a 27. The .40 S&W round is superior to the 9mm Luger.

    I run Golden Sabre 180 grain rounds in her.

    Flip a coin.
    Head's it's the 26
    Tails it's the 27

    When the coin is in the air, catch it and put it in your pocket, whichever side you wanted to come up won.
