I would go with the Model 27. I have carried it as back up, off duty and now as a retirement CCW for years. I shoot it as well as I do my duty Model 22 that the agency gave to me at retirement which was my duty gun. Every year it shoots a possible on my Presidential 218 Qualification Course, so it does very well for me. Certainly nothing wrong with the 22 or 23 it is all personal preference. But for CCW I prefer the 27. I have recently purchased a Springfield XDS in 45 ACP but reserving evaluation for later. Hard to park the Old Horse after all these years!
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
