Glock 26 vs Glock 27?
 
I was wanting to buy a glock 27 but I've heard some people have problems shooting them due to recoil. I am 5'10 147lbs small hand's. I want to know if some of you have had this same dilemma. This would be my first glock and my concealed carry gun. Thanks

The 27 is a bit snappy, I'll give you that. My daughter won't shoot mine, and normally she is not recoil sensitive. Personally, I love it, and I'm no big beefy guy myself. See if you can find a range that rents to try them both out.

Yea I been wanting to do that I just haven't had the time to do so. I have a 9 mm I just want a different caliber and I know the .40 is a good self defense round.

I've never shot the 27 but I have the 26 and I don't think it is ratical at all.

I went with the Glock 27 (and 22 & 23) and don't find the recoil to be a problem. Later I got a Lone Wolf G23 40-9mm conversion barrel that lets me shoot 9mm in the 23 and 27 (reliable but not recommended for self defense, just range use). I'd choose the G27 again if I had a "do over".

40S&W is easy to find, even during panic buying, which is something to consider.

I bought the 26 bc the gun store didn't have the 27 and I got it for a fair price. If I was u I'd get the 27 and if u wanna shooter cheaper ammo get a 9mm barrel for the 27. Then u have both guns.

You will like the 19 a lot more than the 26. The 26 is advertised as a sub compact but it is larger than many full size guns (weighs as much as a ruger p95...thicker than any other popular sub compact). If I am going to buy a full size gun I want a full size gun with at least a 4" barrel. The 17 has a grip that was not designed for human hands. The 17 points at the ground when I shoot it. Hickok 45 had the same issues with the 17.

If you have small hands you will like the M&P a lot. My Dad has bad hands and my wife's hands are small. They both own and love the M&P.

I used to have pistols of various calibers. Every time I got ready to shoot one of the pistols I had no ammo. Finally I sold all my pistols except 9mm and 357 mag. I buy ammo by the case at great prices. I made this decision in 2008. I haven't noticed the last ammo shortage. I am still shooting $8 a box 9mm ammo.

Would you care to list these "full size guns" that are smaller and lighter than a Glock 26!!! Glocks do have a fairly thick slide but their subcompacts still are small, light and concealable.

Not everyone is able to warehouse their ammo since 2008 so that's not going to hold water when recommending that a new person avoid using more than two calibers.

That's actually a good idea. That might make me get one quicker then expected.
