    Another Glock bites the dust...

    I finally went to the gun store and put my hands on the Glocks. I compared the 27/36/30sf and decided on the 27.
    I found a not very used one with a pierce mag ext. for $419 so I used what I saved and bought a Galco IWB and a box of Fed. premium low-recoil 135 gr. that another Glockster in the store recommended.
    I'm satisfied until I get to the range and put it through the wringer. It's a gen 3 so I hoping it's a post problem 27!
    I'm looking fwd to burning up some powder....

    Great deal on that G27, I love mine and carries better than my G22. Enjoy the range and let us know how you did.

    You should find the G27 more than a great gun! Enjoy.

    Use a firm grip with with the low recoil ammo, I've never shot it through any of my .40s but I've seen a few .40s choke with this ammo and a less than tight grip.

    Congrats on the new pistola! One of my favorites.

    Congrats on the new Glock, you'll soon learn to love the dependability, and concealability...

    Yea, Pastor, I was wondering if that would be the take...not so. Also the concealability is already in play... it is perfect
    I was also warned about the possibility of not recycling with low recoil ammo..something to think about. I'll take the recoil for the dependability

    And, you can get conversion barrels to shoot 9mm or .357 Sigs. I'm not a fan of low-recoil ammo in a semi-auto. They're designed to operate at certain pressure levels to feed. Keep a firm grip.
