    Ok I know this is gonna be a wide open conversation with large parameters but I currently own a Glock 27, now what to get next? I want something larger in size but can't decide to stay with .40 or not? Any help is appreciated

    Since you have a 27 and assuming your happy with it, I'd get the 23

    +1 on that! I was about to suggest that. I own a g23 gen 3 and a g27 gen 3 I love it the 23 perfect size and a awesome shooter!

    Another vote for the 23. And if you decide you want a 9mm or 357 sig later you could just change the barrel.
  5. since I have a 34 and a 22.Either a 17L , 24or a35. A long barreled 9mm or 40s&w is next purchase.

    The .40s are great. We have a G22 and a G27. Both are great shooters. The G23 is also on the list. I'll just move your thread to the What Glock Should I Get subforum.

    I would also say G23. I love the size of it compared to my G22. I have a G23C. If you consider a "c" model, don't let anyone scare you with " night blindness" or hot flames and gasses In your face. It really does make a difference in felt recoil.

    I have a 23, if it weren't for my 21, it would be my favorite! For a.40 and right size, nothing better!

    The 23 is what I was leaning torward, just hear word about 10mm and 45acp bigger the better on bullet size but I personally feel .40 s&w will be fine.

    I, too, have a 23C, and previously owned a 19C. Personally, I'm limited to a few, usually 1 or 2, handguns. I like the commonality of caliber and the ability to take advantage of bulk ammo purchase in one caliber, not 2 or 3.

    Get what you want, but keep these things in mind. All the guns in the world do us no good if we are not practitioners of our craft. I find that I'd rather shoot a single platform more rather than multiple platforms/calibers less.

    I agree with this. That's why I have a G22 and a G23. I have tried to "consolidate" my defensive battery. I sold my Taurus in.40 S&W and bought the 23 so that my two primaries were both Glock. I can also use the 22 mags in the 23 if I want. Although not the other way around. I may sell the 22 to get another 23.
    I do this with my rifles also. I have two AKs and a good amount of magazines. I also have an L1a1 in 7.62 NATO/.308. My next project is a long distance bolt gun in .308.
    Part of me wishes I was in 9mm instead of .40 just because of the ammo price.
