    There is not that much more recoil with the G27 than the G26. If if you want to limit your ammo stash, the 26 would be a good choice. Frankly I have no problem with either and both are amazingly accurite for such a small firearm.

    Or if you got the 27, you could do a barrel swap and have .357 sig, which I feel, through extensive reading is a better caliber.

    But even if you have the means, spending the same $$$, you would shoot more with a 9 than a .40.

    I've shot the G26, G27 and G30. They are all good guns. I personaly carry the G27 daily. The recoil isn't much different than the G26 to me. Whichever you get spend the time practicing and you should have a fine weapon that you can trust.

    I have both the 26 and 27 and prefer the 27. I like the extra punch associated with the 40, needed or not. I don't see any difference in shoot ability.

Being able to use the same magazines means less investment is required to have two guns that are able to be used in bad situations. Making your first two handguns the compact and subcompact Glocks of the same caliber is a great idea. I wish I'd have done that instead of waiting so long to make it work for me.
    This really sums it up for myself...I have the Gen 3 in both the G19 and G26. They are my EDC, "go to" weapons. Common caliber in 9mm, ammo less costly and more available which encourages me to train more, interchangeable mags from G19 to the G26 in a worse than imaginable scenario... Train with both weapons and when you are satisfied that you have expended all of your resources in obtaining all of the training you need, and your preparation for self defense/SHTF scenarios are at a maximum readiness line, THEN and only then would I be seeking additional weapons in additional calibers to "play" with...The 9mm is more than sufficient to stop a threat providing you have maximized YOUR abilities with your weapons...JMO
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Is it too late to vote for the G26?

    Maybe I'm just a huge wimp but my hand hurts already thinkingof shooting 40s&w through that small of a firearm.

    I've shot a .40 sub compact. It's not fun.

    I have 1911's for "fun" shooting. My G27 is for those "not fun" situations.

    You got that right. They are for keeping someone off of you! Like you, I have plenty other toys to keep exercised.
