I have carried a G36 for 4 years now. Don't even know it is there. Very concealable and even though it is only a single stack, having a handful of 45 hollow point at the ready is very comforting in any situation.
Now I would venture away from the .380. Unless you just want a gun to plnk with. I personally would shy away from the 9mm as it is too small of a round for my taste. Havent shot the .357 but it probably has a ton of recoil. The glock 27 shot pretty good. About the same as the glock 23 in my opinion.
Held a glock 30 sf today. Pretty bulky around the frame if you ask me. It may be better to check on the g36 sf with the single stack frame. Very comfortable. I would suggest either the 27, 30sf, or 36sf.
Heck I wore mine like that a few time. Pull straight up till it clears the holster then bring it to your side. You arent sweeping it across your body. Besides, like a guy at work told me. He likes his like that because he can reach back pull it out and hold it behind him without the person seeing it. Then it is a quick movement and it is in front of him. Or he can keep it hid if the situation ends up being he doesnt need it and then there is no fashing of a gun at all.
I guess it is a personal preference.
go with G27. Haven't had it long but love it.
I'm also looking for a CCW pistol and can't decide on the G26 or 27. I suspect that the 26 will have a more managable recoil but I like the power of the 27. Any thoughts?
+1 on the 27, same size as a 26 but big bore = bigger holes.
I voted the 27 also, size wise its the same as a 33 or even a 26. It makes bigger holes than all three of the weapons you chose. Ammo is cheaper and a somewhat more available(in my neck of the woods) A lot of people will say get a 26 or a 19 because of capacity. Also the ammo is cheaper. Anyone you choose you will not be disappointed in I assure you that.
youll love the 27, the 26 is nice too.
I have the 27 and the recoil isn't bad at all. If you think you have an issue with recoil then you should stick with the 26 but give the 27 a shot. Try to find someone that has one and see if you can shoot it. I love the 27 has a little more knock down power, but that is just me. :smt023
Besides for the cost of a barrel and a new mag you can convert the 27 to a 26 and have 2 very nice shooters. Someone correct me if I am wrong.
The OP posted one time in June of 2008. I don't think he's here anymore.
I voted for the .38 Glock trying to suggest a 9mm Glock. I didn't know Glock made a .38 cal.
I own a Glock 26 in 9mm and you talk about a sweet gun. Very small, easy to hide, very accurate and fairly easy to find and buy.
You might want to consider a Sig Saur or a Walther PPK in a .380 cal. same plus spec's as the Glock 26 in size, weight etc. just in a .380 (9mm short).
My wife and I both carry Glock 26's and sometimes and a Kahr PM9.
g27, 40 , my buddy has one , and ive shot it , feels real good
33 its 9mm from hell. Even though its 357 sig.
Glock 26, heavy but reliable with Pearce sleeve extension.
I have carried both the 26 and 27. Currently with the 27 but plan to buy a 9mm barrel soon for cheaper range visits. I will still shoot .40 but not as much.
G 19 is hard to beat.:smt023
easy killer im right handed but i also have a 76 inch arm span and its not that hard for me to reach around now and days i just carry a 26 in a pancake clip on holster in the pants that i got from dosborn:smt023
None of the above.
Go Glock 19 4thGen when they come out.
Replacing my Beretta Cheetah with a Gen4 G19.
I have in my plans to get either a 26( I already have 2 9mm so Id kinda like to keep it all in the same family) or a 27, and Im starting to really lean torwards the 27.....lately I cant find 9mm anywhere and 40 is everywhere.....the 27 is such a great gun, but so is the 26......I guess the only logical solution is to get one of both....
