    I would go for the G27. I carried an XD40SC for over 5 years. I bought a G19, and haven't carried my XD40SC since.

    Speaking as somebody who generally has to fight about every round he buys and every minute of range time, losing that Glock sounds like it was a small price to pay for a great wife. Give that girl a kiss and go shopping for whatever suits you best.

    I wish my wife cared enough about shooting to claim one of mine. You're a lucky guy! I have owned a bunch of guns, and sold or traded most away. I'm a big Glock fan and I think you're on the right track. You also have the right idea about same caliber- same mags. the grip angle & trigger are the same. So if you or your wife had to use the gun in a defense situation- you would perform best with that gun that you have so much trigger time on.

    I own both G23 & G27 and the difference is 1/2" in height and length. I have carried both for years (since 2007.) Both are awesome as most of us agree. I don't know why 1/2" matters that much, but the G27 is definitely easier for me to conceal in the summer. So that's my vote G27.

    You could opt for the NiB slide finish or an o.d. frame if you felt you wanted "something different."

    I like the idea of at least staying with the same caliber. I must say that the Glock 27 really is not much easier to carry than the 23. I have had both. What really makes the difference in carry is the holster. I love my Remora, but its for a very small single stack 9mm. I would stay with the Glock 23 and get a different holster.

    So, here's what I'm faced with, and I want some opinions on a new CC handgun: I loved the glock 23. It fit my hand, had a sold feel while I was shooting it, and I shot it pretty well. However, it is a little more difficult to carry concealed. I tend to carry at the 6 oclock position in a remora holster. I've thought about buying Glock 27 so that the clips are interchangeable in a SHTF situation. It also will help if we only have to buy one type of ammo mainly. I've also thought about switching over to a different pistol as well. Wouldn't mind trying a XD40 in a subcompact, or even a FN.

    So, thoughts? I know that in the end, it's also about feel, and the next time I go to the range, I'm going to rent a couple different types of weapons and give them a try, I'm trying to find out which ones I should give a go at.
    Check with your wife first and determine what models she hates then you will have a few to choose from....

    Will she let you borrow the XD9 when she isn't using it?

    Or does she carry both?

    Well; look at the bright side you only lost a couple pistols............ I lost my F350 dully that way for a while. While in Iraq for 2 years I asked the wife to drive it a couple time a month just to keep fluids pumping etc. I get an email after about 9 months telling me the truck was now hers

    Let her have any gun she wants. Cheaper than a divorce. I lost house, 1 car and my dignity.

    In the meantime, ask her if you can borrow "her" XD9.

    Two solutions for you. A. Don't let your wife touch any gun you want to keep. With solution A, you will probably end up sleeping on the couch.. a lot . B. If you find a gun you like and want to buy it save enough discretionary income for two of the same gun. That way you each have one of your own and no sleeping on the couch for you. Also, she might be less likely to complain about you spending so much on guns.

    I suppose your opposed to going to the bar and trying out a few different wives until you find one that won't steal your guns.
