    Just picked up this Glock 27 .40 S&W today. I've never owned a Glock before but have fired this model that belonged to a friend and it seems like it will be a good carry option. My regular carry guns are a KT PF9 and Kimber UC II.. I have Beretta 96 already so ammo isn't an issue.....grandson and I will take the 27 out this week and put a couple hundred rounds through it. It is a little thick though isn't it?

    That's a good sized pistol for concealed carry. Enjoy!

    Other than the Beretta 96 and trying out a friends G27, I have not had much experience with a .40.....I'm more of a .45acp guy (garage, attic, closet, etc is full of brass!!). I like the Keltec due to the size and weight but, in my mind anyway, like a bigger bullet.

    I'll provide a range report later this week. One of the best parts of a new carry piece is looking for a holster....will be cruising the internet for a Desantis and/or (probably both!) Mitch Rosen.

    I like the fact I can change calibers so easily with the G27, not that I will right away but I can smell a 9mm barrel and mag and a .357 Sig barrel in the not-so-far future! That was an unexpected but very pleasant surprise!

    Congrats on the new purchase.

    I am buying a Glock 29 10MM and maybe a Glock 20 also.

    Enjoy your new pistol, sounds like you're proud of it, as you should be. Good choice for concealed carry.

    I don't like the 40 S&W, it's just not a comfortable round to shoot. It has the stopping power needed but just not a fun caliber to shoot.

    I can shoot 45ACP all day and not have an issue. The same can be said of the 9mm but the 40 is a much snappier round and after 3-4 mags I'm ready to go and get an ice-tea.

    You have a nice gun there, and I hope you enjoy it. Keep us in the loop with a range report.

    That is one butt-ugly picture james_black and I don't care much for the picture of the pink 1911 either!

    I'm not sure about the .40 yet either and will have to give it a chance I suppose. I've fired a fair amount out of the Beretta but a full size pistol is a lot different than this lightweight. I fired one box from my friends G27 and yes, it is pretty snappy. I've always been partial to hammer-guns and thought I'd at least give a striker-fire a go for a change plus a lot of people sure seem to like Glocks. I have a safe full of "perfect" carry guns that are now queens so at least it won't get lonely if I don't like it.

    Amazingly, my gf, who has a lot of trouble with slides (carries a S&W 360 M&P), has no issues with the G27 slide and may want it for herself IF it is decided I don't/won't. Keltec's break her nails and a 1911, in a jam, would only serve her as a hammer/rock.

    I appreciate the comments folks and will provide a range report once the grandson and I hit the range later this week....calling for rain through Saturday though.

    Well, to beat the incoming weather, we took it to Thunder Range this morning. It functioned flawlessly for the 100 rounds we fired. Mags are a little tough to load without the load-assist (left at home!) and it was printing about 3" left of center at 20 yards with Rem/UMC 180 grns. Nice firearm though and I like the trigger.

    We'll give it another 300 rounds next week and see how it does.

    A very good day at the range as always and the G27, Kimber UC II, Buckmark, and Mosquito all got a good work out....my grandson enjoyed it immensely.

    As long as you good deal, there's nothing wrong with Glock pistols. Many folks don't like 'em cause of many of their owner's attitudes. No pistol can be "ghey" as as someone stated. . . only their owners can be.

    I have had Glocks in the past and never had problems with their function. Not my favorite pistols, but they do their job.

    Hell, I might get another one someday if the price was right. . . :rolleyes:
