    Joined the Glock Fanboy Club Today (finally)

    So I got my hands on a used but not abused Glock 27 with factory night sights (that still work) for $400 clams out the door. Maybe not a killer deal, but I am happy with it.

    I am a staunch 1911 supporter, but I always find carrying them to be fine, but not super great. This one packs a wallup with 11 rounds of .40 S&W and is light and easy to conceal. And it's a Glock so every time I point and pull the trigger it'll go BANG!

    Anyways, I know some people say the Glock is ugly, but I find it quite attractive. And BONUS! My Galco King Tuck for my M&P fits this firearm almost perfect. A little hair dryer time and remold of the kydex and it'll be perfect.

    Glad to be a "Glockophile", can't wait to add more to my "collection".

    Welcome to the club. We still have plenty of room for those of you who will be joining in the future. $400 for what you got isn't bad, at least around here.

    G27 is an excellent carry weapon. Good choice and welcome to the family. As for ugly, I just don't see it. It's a beautiful gun to my eyes. If I ever meet a new "friend" in a dark alley, I'd love to show it to him.

    Glocks are not ugly to those that understand what they are capable of doing in the right hands. Congrats on the G27.......

    and look at my sig line for my take on Glocks.

    That's funny. Especially since in the past I have hated on Glocks and loved on Kimbers. And while my Pro Carry 2 is a beauty and I carry it, I find myself migrating back to the lighter, polymer guns for most EDC situations. But unlike the Kahrs, the Glock feels like a bigger gun in my hand. I like it. Hopefully I will get to shoot it this weekend.

    Nice find!

    You can always drop a .357 barrel into it and have the ultimate "pocket rocket' the modern .357 Snubbie.

    20 years ago, the owner of a gun store in Texas was trying to get me to buy my first Glock. I couldn't stand them, and ended up with a Ruger P89 instead......and then a buddy let me shoot his G19
    at an outdoor range where you could really wring out the Glock in rapid fire. I was hooked and over time, they are the one gun I have come to respect and admire for what they are, not for what they
    are not. As OklVet stated: Just Deadly Serious in Apprearance......and in function.

    Congrats on the new Glock. Looks nice. I woulda paid $400 for that pistol in a 'NY second'.

    I recently joined the fan club myself, with the purchase of a G34 Gen4 to be used for IDPA and other competitive shoots. Prior to this, I was a devout 1911 shooter. The grip angle of the Glocks is a little different than a 1911 - takes some getting used to.

    I did a meticulous "25 cent trigger polish" (just Google the phrase and you'll see a million links) on mine and it really smoothed up the trigger action........

    Congrats, enjoy. The 27 is a great carry option, and $400 is a good price for it IMO. I agree with many others here. I like the look of Glocks. It is kinda like the looks of an M1 Abrams. It isn't designed to "look" sexy, it is designed to be very capable, leathal and functional... and THAT is what makes it sexy!

    Too funny, I traded in a Ruger P89 towards a new Glock27 two months ago. Goes well with my Glock23's I keep at the house.

    I might actually do this, especially after seeing that guys wound who popped his own leg with one. What is the recoil like with .357 sig?

    Funny enough, the G27 is noticeably more comfy up against my side than the M&P9c it replaced. It is remarkable actually.
