First time poster here and I'll apologize now in advance as I'm sure this has been hashed over once or twice before. I've read a lot on here and this seems like a great forum.
This weekend I plan on getting a new "subcompact". Either the
G26, G27 or G33. For CC only. When and if I elect to OC I'll be covered.
Currently we (wife and I) have a G19 for HD only. For CC I feel it's too big. I love the G19 but for us and CC, it's slightly cumbersome
no matter what position I carry in. (SOB or IWB) It prints to some degree. I'd like to minimize that as much as possible. I'm 5' 10" 210lbs Med to stocky build.
I'm leaning towards the G27 for the following reasons. (CC only)
1) The G27 seems like a better choice for CC due to the smaller size and stopping power. I'm not to concerned with kick back. I'm sure I can handle it however I've only got "real" experience with the 9mm.
2) Ammo cost and availability. The 357 sig availability sucks in my area. 9mm and .40 is plentiful with .40 slightly higher but not enough to make me choose a G26 over the G27. I do like the thought of the G33 for it's stopping power but can't see paying the extra buckos on ammo. I would strongly consider the G33 if price and availability were much better.
3) We have the 9mm already. If for some reason I really want to go back to a 9mm I can change barrels right?
Wife will most likely end up with either a .380 or a 9mm. That will be her decision.
Thanks in advance and let me know if I'm missing anything.
