I had the G26 in 9mm. Traded for the G27 in .40. Big mistake. The 26 was a sweet shooter, damn near perfect for me, the 27 was not (I fell for the "Its the bullet the LEOs are using logic"). I would take the G26 9mm over ANY .40 in any size. The forty is just not better enough to warrant the extra recoil and ammo cost and in a full size (or heavier) gun the nine is a high cap pussycat, and you can get a .45ACP if you want more grunt (why ask why on the 10mm heavy recoil?). Try a G26, please!
