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

    Way too late for that, we have 2 Kimbers, a Rock Island, a Springfield, a WWII Remington that was my Grandfathers service sidearm and a complete set of WWI Colts with there display boxes. Promised the wife we would hold off on any more 1911's for a while.

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

    Mine didn't. Most people don't need a different ejector, from what I've read, however some people do, in fact, (choose to) change the ejector. If you plan to shoot light target loads in 9mm with your .40S&W Glock, however, you'll be facing the same recoil spring induced FTEs that (early) G17/19 owners had. 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.

    Cheers!

    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.

    My Glock 19 won't do that nearly as quickly. For me at least, my hands, grip, the match between the dynamics of the gun and my body, the 26 is the perfect SD pistol for me. I have the 19 for HD because it has the rail for a light (I think a rail light is essential for target verification on an HD gun most likely used at night).

    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.

    YMMV

    Guess I can't complain though, she got me a shotty for my B-Day and I think I can have the 19 back.

    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.
