Default Shoot better with Glock 27

A G26/G27 is a good example of a subcompact that should be up to the task of some really high mileage. With that said, when it comes to defense with a pistol (at home or otherwise), you'll almost certainly be better off with something bigger than a subcompact. A SC is always going to tradeoff a degree of performance for convenience. That's why my PF9 would be about the last pistol I'd reach for in a home defense situation, even if I carry it quite a bit and can shoot it adequately.
I was actually kind of shocked (see link below) to see that I shoot the Glock 27 better than I shoot my Glock 17. I guess I'm lucky to more accurate with the sub-compact.

First 18 Rounds With Glock 27

Subcompact guns need frequent spring changes every 500 roumds or so. They arent designed to shoot lots and lots. Most will.go.the distance but you have to be mindful of maintanence and do frequent inspections.

There just is not enough slide mass. Thats why they have strong springs. Ill fire 50 rounds thru my colt new agent now and then for familiarization but the manual of arms is the same as my full.size series 70
