    If you ever had any question about the accuracy of a Glock 27, Hickok's videos will answer them. Just an amazingly well designed and built gun.

    I would do another vote for an XD sub compact, or a Glock 23. I have medium to large size hands and can't get a decent grip on a 26/27. I figure if you are putting a mag extention on, might as well carry a little more firepower with a 23. The XD however fits my hands very well and is near in size to the 27. I can get almost my whole hand on a subcompact XD with the short magazine.

    I second the G36 for CC. It has obnoxious recoil but not like a magnum and it is easy to train to a high level of accuracy. I CC with a 21SF mainly because I dont like the grip of the 36 and like having 13, 230 grain Federal HSTs at the ready. In my view a G36 is not more comfortable than a 21SF although it does conceal better.

    I am on week 2 of carrying my G27. I love this gun! When I first got my CCW I had a Bersa .380, then went to a S&W M&P-9c, then went to an XD 40sc, then went to a Colt Defender, and now finally settled on a Glock 27. As you can see by my prior carry guns, I tried hard to not go Glock, but in the end in was simply unavoidable. Thi G27 is by far my favorite carry gun of the bunch I tried, well favorite only after my J-Frame. I carried my buddies G19 for a few days and I think that there is a bit of a difference between the sizes of the compact and subcompact glocks. If you go G27, pinky-extensions are overrated and negate the subcompact concept. I highly recommend and use GAP floorplates. The are awesome and make the G27 so much easier for us with larger hands.
    Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.

    I've shot both the 27 and the 23, and liked them both. I liked the 23 a little better, and ended up buying one. I am happy with my decision. I don't like the 23 anymore, I now love it. I have a Kahr CW9, which is a little smaller and lighter than the G23. To me, the recoil of the Kahr in 9mm and the G23 in .40 is very similar. I tried an XD40sc, but it felt top-heavy to me. I would certainly not discount it, as it may feel perfect for you. Rent them at the range, shoot them, and pick the one you like best. Any of the 3 will serve you well.

    thanks, guys. I'm thinking that the G27 is the one for me. I've held them all, now it's just off to the range to fire a few rounds.

    I plan on renting several different guns this weekend. One of those is the G23. I know it is not ideal but does anybody ankle carry the G23?
