    Yes, it kicks more than a 9mm, but it launches a bigger bullet; regardless, recoil is ammo dependent.

    "Apples to apples":
    Glock 26: Ranger T 127 gr. +P+ @ 1,182 fps = PF 150
    Glock 33: Ranger T 125 gr. @ 1,280 fps = PF 160
    Glock 27: Ranger T 165. @ 1,116 fps = PF 184
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Glock 27: Remington 165 GS @ 1,018 fps = PF 168
    Glock 27: Federal 155 gr. HS @ 1,072 fps = PF 166
    Glock 27: Federal 180 gr. HST @ 930 fps = PF 167

    PF= power factor
    Bullet weight x bullet speed / 1,000 = PF
    Useful for quantifying recoil out of same size pistols
    I agree 100%. Not to get into caliber or anything, but I have found in watching gel tests at least that the 165gr .40 cal delivers the most penetration. Consistently 15-17" worth where the 180gr typically only go 10-11" deep. Interesting indeed. I just think the .40 was meant to be above 1000fps and 180gr loads are just too slow.

    My G27 is my usual choice of carry but some times do mix it up with a G30, G23, Kimber Ultra II and Colt Mustang 380.

    I personally carry a G27 when off duty and for some reason shoot it better than the G23.

    Tried it out, found out the SA XD40SC was about the same size, with less kick. For an EDC, I liked the secondary safety in the back of the grip as well. I also like the sights better than the glock.

    Still fire my G23 quite a bit, but I gotta admit, I've fallen in love with my XD40SC.

    This last weekend I went to the range with my Glock 23. I took a mix of 165 and 180 FMJ. I had only ever shot 180 gr before. The 165's were really snappy and just not pleasant to shoot at all. The 180's had much less felt recoil and I was much more accurate with them.

    I just bought one for a CCW. I still need to pickup a holster, but it does fit in my Remora. Need to shoot it a little and pickup some PD ammo for it. I'm looking forward to it, it feels very similar to my nano except has a much shorter trigger. I've always shot decent with a glock.
