    I need some opinions on which glock to purchase? I'm very interested in glock 27 or glock 30. I don't care if it's gen 3 or gen 4. Just wanted to get y'all expert opinions on which to purchase. I already have a gen 3 glock 23 and a gen 3 glock 21sf. So I'm not very interested in 9mm glock 26. I just want something in those calibers :)

    My vote is for the G27 in .40...as you already have a G21 in .45 !

    Can not go wrong with either. Since it is probably for CCW and not the range, ammo cost should not be a factor. I would vote 27 for two reasons. One being capacity and the other being to cancel out Dutchs vote.:D both are fine weapons. Toss a coin.

    But, but, but, you get so much bang for the buck in the highly concealable 30..........:eek::)

    Glock 30!
    Standard magazine - 10 rounds of .45, instead of 9 .40s&w.
    A little over 6oz heavier, which would be a concern in a purse, but for a man, no big deal. :D
    The .40s&w was an answer to a problem that the .45 had already corrected 100 years ago. :)

    Being it's a .45 how is the recoil? I mean in my 21 it's not too bad.

    Alright Shooter, Chime in here, you carry one EVERY day! I have a 21 as well. The truth for me is I had a 30 and I love the gun, I just was not comfortable with the size. Shooter can tell you more about how it shoots when he sees this. Maybe... He will:D

    Nothing wrong with a .45, I love my 1911 :D show it to all my friends, only problem is he is tired of looking at. :mad:

    The 30 is on my list as well, but then again, so are the other models I do not have yet.

    Dual recoil spring in the G30 makes the recoil very manageable. No snap like the .40, probably the same as a G21.

    I had them both. For carry comfort the 27 is the best by far. The 30 is a brick and a heavy one at that (compared to the 27). I recently sold my 30 to a good friend and bought a 36. So now I still have the best of both worlds.

    I tried the G27, G30, & G36...after shooting all of them I bought the G30. It really comes down to personal preference I guess.
    I am looking to add to my collection so I will have more tough decisions. ;)
