    Bought 1st new glock

    Well, After shooting a Sig 220 Combat only, I decided to get a smaller framed carry gun and bought a Glock 27 today. It feels great to hold, balances well with a full mag. Can't wait to get to the range. Never shot a glock before.

    well, after stripping it and just handling it for a while, It certainly is not a Sig, but it's not a POS either. Should be shooting it on Friday eve.

    Certainly not. It has a lower bore axis and a shorter trigger reset, so it's better.

    The compact Glocks just don't suit my hand. I bought a Glock 20 last week, my first Glock, and I love it. Full sized, but lightweight. 15 + 1 round of 10mm is a whale of a lot of power to have in one's hand, and the recoil is really manageable, even for someone who isn't king-sized. One of those "medium" guys.

    I'd consider a compact Glock in 40 or 45 if the trigger to palm geometry was different. For now I'll settle for my Taurus PT145 or 650 snubby when I need a CC gun. A lot of talk here has me thinking a 9mm in a carry piece might be a good choice, though. This 45 and 10mm ammo sure doesn't encourage one to practice a lot! And 38 to use for practice in the 357 mag snubby seems to be getting scarce and more expensive. Who woulda thought?
