    Glock for the CCW?

    I have a smith and wesson 9mm which i like but is not a subcompact frame. I will be taking the CCW course in Ohio and debating which glock i should get.

    I would like to get some expert advice on this, as it will greatly influence the handgun which i will purchase.

    .357 Glock 33
    .38 Glock 28
    .40 Glock 27

    I am leaning towards the .38 or the .40 not so much the .357 but ide like to hear what you have to say.

    I want to stay away from a .45 since i feel that is too big of a caliber for the CCW and since i have a 9mm already i would like to have different caliber.

    G27 was my everyday carry---well, until I got my G19 that is.

    Considering the cost of practice ammo, and the fact you already have a 9mm, I'd say 17, 19 or 26...

    I've owned a 23 that was a great gun (.40Cal).

    Pick your platform (sub compact, compact, or full size)
    Pick your caliber (anything over 9mm)
    Pick your number! All the Glocks are good.

    Then buy a Springfield XD45 and don't look back.

    My opinion,

    Dismiss the puny .380 immediately. There is no point in carrying a .380 the size of any Glock, when you can just as easily carry a 9mm or larger caliber in a gun of the same size. Anyway, the 28 isn't available in the US.

    There's about a nickel's worth of difference between the .357 and .40. Either works fine, but both have snappy recoil and are expensive to shoot. I'd choose a 9mm over either, which also works fine for defense with good HP ammo.

    the glock 38 is a 380 and is not imported to the usa
    i would choose the g27 from your list but actually i own and would choose the glock26 in 9mm
    more bullets in the pistol and with the glock 17 magazines in your pocket for backup you have a lot of capability there

    I'd vote for the Glock 19. I don't find it any harder to conceal than the 26 and you get 5 more rounds. Just my opinion!

    I'll pile on with the rest and say G-19 or 26. Just use a cheap practice ammo with the same weight bullet as your defense HP round. If I was going with the .40 I would get the mid size MP-40 as it has a little more weight and can tame the the .40 round right down. Good luck.

    From a fellow Ohio resident, I would suggest a G19. It's a good base to build on. FWIW, I have found the Galco Concealable to be the most desirable OWB holsters. I am not a fan of IWB.

    Don't overlook the G26, and I would also consider a G30SF. As you can see from my signature, I like variety.

    Good luck.

    I know you wanted to stay away from a .45 but I like the Glock model 36. It's a single stack .45.

    I voted for the .357Sig, simply because I love to shoot mine. I've got a 32C and it is quite possibly the best shooter I own, after plenty of practice, of course. Control over a caliber has, in my opinion, alot more to do with practice practice practice than with wondering how cheap its going to be. When it comes to performance and it's ability to get the job done, I'll go with a more expensive round that will deliver a bit more performance and just absorb the cost somewhere. 357Sig is a great round.

    The G27 is just about perfect for me. Either that or my G30 when I feel like toting the xtra wt.

    I carry the 27 with 180 grain hp. I was concerned about recoil. It shoots like a dream and handles great. I double tapped it several times with no problems. I stippled the grip and also reduced the frame myself and it came out great. Now I am looking at the g 21sf as an addition to my gun family. If anyone has comments on the 21sf please advise.
    Thanks
    Tom
