    I went to the range today...

    I'm fairly new to the site, and I have a Glock 27, and I love the gun. It's very smooth to shoot, and not as bad on the kick/re-coil as I had thought. I shot a total of 200 rounds through my new Glock, and not one mis-feed, or error of any sort. Shot flawlessly, and I think that says a lot for a Glock. My question is: I shot 180 Gr. Blazer Brass FMJ, 180 Gr. Winchester Hollow point, and 155 Gr. Winchester Law Enforcement Hollow Point. I found the 155 grain bullet to be the hardest recoil/kick; but is this normal. I was thinking after a few rounds D**M this has kick. A bit too much for my liking, so I'm thinking on staying in the 180 grain family if you will.. BTW all ammo was bought at Wal-Mart; except the Law Enforcement case was bought at a local gun shop..

    The difference between the 180 and 155 gr should not be that noticable, unless the 155 Ranger happens to be +P loads.

    The G27 is a great pistol. Recoil of the 40cal is a bit different and in my book, more noticeable than a 45acp pistol. I'll do 2-300 rounds in mine every once in a while, but it takes it's toll most on my trigger finger.

    Would you see the marking +P on the casing bottom?

    I would only fire a small amount of the 155 grain Ranger rounds just to keep yourself familiar with them. Use the others for practice of course, but try only 50 to 100 rounds each session, that way you don't fatigue yourself with recoil and start to develop bad shooting habits.
    God bless our troops!

    Very true, I wanted to get a feel for different styles, weights, and grains.. I do not plan on shooting this heavy every time. Thanks for the heads up!!

    Most usually the +P cases are nickel plated and yes---+P should be marked on the bottom or case head.
