I have decided I need a .40 carry pistol. Everytime I go looking for 9mm ammo, I find plenty of .40 cal in my area. I am an advocate of carrying as much pistol as you can shoot accurately. I have shot both these pistols, and liked them both. The G23 felt better in my hand, and yet I was more accurate with the G27. Having never shot a .40, I was pleased to find that the recoil of both pistols wasn't nearly as violent as I had been lead to believe. They both seemed fairly easy to get back on target after the first shot, and doubles with both guns were as accurate as my shooting skills deserved, (and yes, I realize I was shooting target ammo) My conundrum is which do I get? I want this to be a CCW gun, and I can't afford both. Any advice from anyone who has tried both, has had both, or who carry both, and how you carry them, would be greatly appreciated.
