I vote g27. It's extremely accurate for its size and u get the glock reliability. My wife carries one daily and u can't even tell its on her.

Thanks for all the input. Didn't end up getting one today due to various financial reasons that came up. I will post pics when I do.

There are a lot of choices, take your time. Enjoy the hunt.

Made a huge difference for me.

I would also suggest that you consider 9 mm version of your options as well. As far a social interactions, (with proper ammo choices) 9 mm & .40 S&W are pretty much a wash where performance is concerned. If I were to go back, I'd very likely buy the XD9SC instead. Since .40 has little performance advantage, it's disadvantages need to be considered. Capacity being one. The other major one is recoil and general unpleasantness. There is simply no way to ignore it, little .40s suck to shoot with full strength ammo. Can one learn to deal with that? Sure. But I found it tedious after a while. You should do what you think best, just give it some thought.

I am partial to the Glock Model 27 40 Cal. I have carried mine for several years. It is very accurate even at 25+ yards. Will put all the rounds in the center square of a TQ-15 Target with no problem. Since I can not stand my pinkie finger hanging over the end of any pistol grip. I added the extension which also adds an additional round.

My favorite .40 is the small SIG P239.

Consider the Kahr CW40. I have a PM40 for CC. Very small and easy to conceal, but a bit of a bear to shoot often. Very reliable with all ammo types I've fed it. I've had it for about a year with about 300 Ross through it. I'm a large person tho' and recoil doesn't bother me.

not fired the ruger so i can not say.ruger makes great guns as i own a few..

.but imho the one and only thing that counts is will it feed and cycle any type of ammo each and every time.???

as a former gun shop owner and gun exspert in the calif court system i chose a glock....i use a glock 23 in 40 cal..i can take 14 different types of bullets/ heads and shake them in hand then load it in mag and fire each and every time...something few handguns can do.....hand guns where designed to take round nose bullets NOT wide mouth hollow points....a glock is in the same price range fyi...

having a gun jam up cyling or falurure to feed in life or death situation is wrong..i only have one life.

i know we was talking 40 cal..but background info..years ago i showed the 45 master dan dyer that my 45 combat govt could feed empty cases like his did..he was shocked lol...but to me a 45 cal spends to much time with mussel in the air vs on target..i went 40 cal with almost same end results
