You'll love that little 27. I bought one used about 5 years ago and it remains one of my favorites. I'll never get rid of it. Everyone who shoots it loves it. Perfect for my Galco ankle holster backup. Damned accurate for it's size too. It gives my 4" Kimber Super Carry Pro a run for the money...

I can already tell that I am going to like carrying my model 27 much more than my model 30 because of the concealability factor.

Btw--I'm carrying it in one of those blackhawk Serpa holsters that's actually made for a model 22 and it works fine. I may get an ankle holster too.

Between my wife and I, we ran about 140 rounds through my new model 27 a little earlier this evening. I just used the standard grip--I have smallish hands. I was pleasantly surprised that I seem to hit as well with it as I do with my model 30.

Couple of things to note--my hands are on the small side for a guy and I didn't have any trouble with the 40 cal in that small size gun. My wife and I both shot it pretty well for us (not that we're expert shots).

Great to hear that you like your 27! But tell me...did you clean it before you shot it? ;}
The thing I notice about the Glock grip is that, even though it doesn't feel that I have enough purchase on the grip, I can still control it well (I, too, have smallish hands). ...are you going to clean it now? ;}
In truth, I would dismantle it & inspect it for anything that looks out of the ordinary. Wipe out the chamber, wipe off the feed ramp & follow the instructions on lubing the gun. Unlike 1911's, Glocks are not "wet" guns & work well with the minimum lube as per the instructions. Here's to many more good shooting sessions with your wife & your new G27!

Thanks Rukha. The guy running the gun shop at the range assured me there was no need to clean first. So I went ahead and shot it. I bought a Winchester cleaning kit for pistols & Rem oil at Walmart last night but haven't opened it yet. Also I got a hoppes snake.

I was really surprised. I believe in Murphy's Law that anything that can go wrong will go wrong.

I love and collect Colt SA's and even with their weaknesses I have nothing but good to say about them, but a friend of mine purchased a number of years ago new from the Colt Custom Shop a real beauty. While shooting it for the first time the cylinder jammed before it reached the next chamber. It turned out the loading gate got loose and moved forward stopping it dead in it's tracks. So even a gun that I love a lot can screw up. It was easy to fix but in a life and death situation it could've been fatal.

It doesn't require expertise to realize, just common sense that any gun can fail to function. I just think that with the Glock you have much less of a chance. If you own the Kel-Tec and it's worked flawlessly for you that is great. We all have what we feel works best for us. All I am saying is that Kel-Tec would be at the bottom of my list of weapons to be carried for SD. The Glock on the other hand is one of my preferred conceal carry weapons and I do mean just one that I prefer.
Other than the typo do vs. due, I couldn't agree more. Perfect logic and well stated. I love the classic pistols and carried the Colt Series '70 Government Model 36 years. It has been an excellent choice for 100+ years but this old dog couldn't ignore that the Glock 22 offered 16 .40 caliber rounds to the 45ACP's 8. That's significant, and if lost, stolen or confiscated it's easier to replace a Glock than my old Colt. Since then I've added the compact G23 and subcompact G27 so I have the right size pistol for the occasion. I still love the classics and trust them but the Glock has earned the status of classic too. I trust them and can't see going with less, even if you can save a hundred bucks.
