I also think the conversion from .40 to 9mm requires a different ejector - but don't quote me.

But it is 2011 so you just know it would be wrong not to buy one this year.

You might want to buy a reduced weight recoil spring, but for plinking the occasional FTE isn't a big deal. That said, I wouldn't feel comfortable using any conversion-ware for self-defense, personally.

I have a Glock 26 for my EDC. I bought it because it's the gun with which I score best on the first two stages of the IDPA classification match. The gun is amazing for double taps and Mozambiques. For some reason almost dead stock (with a +0 Pierce pinkie grip extension) it's just the perfect balance of weight and recoil to make 1/4 second split double taps that are always within 2 inches of each other. Get the first one in COM, the second one will be right there with it - get the first one in the head part of the target, the second one will be right there with it a quarter second later. It's an awesome gun for close quarters SD.

I'd love to carry a 27, and I'm certain the .40 is a better cartridge "if", and it's a critical "if", I could get as good shot placement as I can with a 9mm. In my case I can't get even close to the shot placement accuracy with the .40 that I can with the 9mm. Yes, it's "only" a 9mm, but the combination of 11 rounds capacity, good shot placement, decent concealability, reliability approaching that of gravity, and COR-BON DPX or equivelant ammunition make it an excellent choice for carry and SD.

My G26 produced a G21! Now they're in the corner conspiring about a G32! LOL

I had a G-27, but.....I sold it and got a G30.....love it love it! G-30 is pretty smooth shooting and rattles less than the 27. But if you want to conceal the 27 is the way to go.
