40sw. In the order you list them- full size, compact, subcompact.

Glocks are fine and so are .40's, just so long as you're a fine shooter with them. And if you're not, try a different brand and/or a different caliber.

The 22-23-27 Are all 40 Cal S&W Cal. And they are fine shooting pistols and reliable. I have a 22 & a 27 in 40 Cal. They are very reliable a durable and great for a service or CCW pistol. I have an extended magazine on the 27 Sub Compact which also adds one additional round in the magazine. The range in size with the 22 being the largest followed by the 23 and then the smaller 27 to follow. The 27 shoots exceptionally well also.

I Carry a glock 23 gen 4 and am very happy with it. I previously owned a 9 mm and made the conscious decision to go to a lower velocity round in hollow point, for fear of over penetration in a then apartment defense scenario. I am now in a house but it is still in very close proximity to my neighbors. Just remember that if you happen to miss your target, or over penetrate it, you are still responsible for what you hit. If you decide to go with 9mm or another high velocity round look into glasser rounds. They compensate for over penetration. Over all I love the glock 23, it has never given me a problem and I have put a few thousand rounds through it with no issues. Good luck on what ever you choose.

The subcompact glocks have a nice grip, although you can only get two fingers around it, it feels natural. I don't know what all the fuss is about for everyone needing grip tape and grip extensions, but the grip extension is about 15 bucks per mag. It feels more natural to me as it is without the extension. That's just me, though. I can't stand those cheap keltec subcompacts because the grip is way too small. The glock has a beefier grip, but it's short. The back strap is replaceable to change the contour to fit your hand. The .40 caliber has a rail, also, under the barrel for mounting an accessory like a laser or light. I have the G26 9mm and there is no rail, but I didn't want a laser.

The subcompacts will also take extended mags like the 30rd Glock mag. I think the .40SW shares the same mag as their .357SIG (could be wrong on this). Stick with the Glock manufactured mags. Korean mags are a waste of money.

I have the full size 40 model 22 and love the heck out of it!
I've had it for a few years and have never had any problems and it performs like a champ! All I have done to it is add some night sights and a slide release extender

Trust me, you cant go wrong with a .40 Glock. I own the G23 and love it; thats my EDC. Now, with that being said, i may get a G27 but not before the G30 (.45acp). I am hearing that the G27 has this short grip and it makes it harder to shoot especially because it has that snap. I really enjoy compact pistols because of the versatility. After my G30, i will look at the G27 and the Springfield xdm 3.8 .45acp. If the G27 sells itself to me than i probably want both. I love the grip on the G23 so, the grip factor will definitely play a factor.

I just purchased a brand new Glock 35 in 40 caliber today for sport shooting. Its my second glock pistol. Tried it at the indoor range with 20 rounds on a black and white target with a maximum of 200 points, under competition conditions. Came out with 182/200 points. For a stock pistol right out of the box I am impressed with its performance. The recoil factor was not as bad as was being said. I do intend to put a tungsten guiderod in it by next month to see if there is really a significant reduction in recoil. I also intend to put a 6.7oz magwell on it. Its a great gun and you can feel the punch it provides. I am happy with my choice for the new year.

For lots of target practice, 9mm are cheaper, but for improved ballistics the .40 is the one to carry.
