    What's your favorite polymer carry .40 S&W?

    Like the title says, What's your favorite polymer, carry-sized (-ish, as in Glock 27 to PX4-sized) .40 S&W? Why and how does it feel to shoot? Please put more than the model name, give me some idea of your experiences and thoughts.

    In the middle of long mental debate and I'd love some outside input. Thanks all!

    Glock 22, be a man and carry a real gun.
    When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid.

    Glock 23, It's very concealable, very shoot-able, very accurate, very dependable, very affordable, and just a dang nice gun.

    In every thread I've read lately, It seems like it's Glock vs. everything else. It also seems like most of us Glockers have alot of love for G23 & G27.

    I vote G27. I'm more accurate with it than my G23 or friends G22(haven't figured that out yet). For me it's the perfect mixture of power, size, weight, dependability, accuracy. (I think my wife just went from being jealous to concerned)

    Seriously- great gun.

    Glock 27 due to conceal-ability mostly since I prefer concealed carry.

    It also is a very accurate easy to shoot sub-compact IMO

    Glock 23. Ugly as sin, too damn fat for IWB carry compared to my 1911s, but it shoots a decent round and it goes bang every time... even after rinsing it in mud. Recoil has a different quality than the .45, and muzzle rise is higher, but recovery is on a par with 1911s in .45. I also shoot this gun pretty well, so yeah, it's a keeper.

    G27 gets the nod for EDC. I carry my 23 at work in a duty holster. The 27 is a little lighter and easier to conceal off-duty. However, I have been know to tote my 23,19 or 30 off-duty as well.

    A high % of the time it is the 27 for off-duty EDC.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    XD40sc. Fits my hand well (grip size and angle) and easy to shoot accurately for me. I carry it both IWB and OWB with no problem. Comes with both a flush 9 round mag and a 12 round extended mag with grip boot. Breaks down very easy and easy to clean. Has loaded chamber indicator, cocked striker indicator, and grip safety which is not even noticable when gripping or shooting.

    XD9sc or XD40c. I absolutely, positively LOVE the feel of the 40 in my hand, and it is a great gun. I picked up the 9 cheap from a guy who needed to pay his rent, and because it is more concealable I carry it more. Because I shoot from a modified Weaver stance the grip angle of the XD line just feels a lot better than the Glock grip. That said, Glock makes a good gun.
