    Guns with the barrel set back like that I hear have excessive amounts of recoil..? Is it a difference worth mentioning or only recognizable in competition shooting?

    That thing will have a very sharp and snappy recoil just like the Glock 27, that is why I prefer a 9mm in that size gun. You still get a stout recoil in 9mm when using +p/+p+ defense ammo.

    if you search the forum, there is a thread by me asking advice about buying the G27 or the XD40. i never gave you guys updates but i was able to shoot both guns (about 150 rounds through each).

    the G27 being the smaller gun was exactly as you described it. very sharp and snappy recoil. after each shot, it took me an extra fraction of a second to realign with the target.

    now the XD40 service model on the other hand was a lot easier to shoot (obviously because it was bigger and my pinky wasn't hanging off the end like the G27). i felt much more comfortable with it than the G27. i ended up buying the XD40.

    my only complaint is that for concealment, the service model is still just a little too big. i am seriously thinking about picking up the subcompact XD40 when they release it. even if the XD40 sub compact ends up shooting like the G27 for me, its cheaper than the the G27. they're both great guns.

    Have you shot one yet? :naughty:

    Anyway, the XD-40 sub is going to be 10+1 capacity. I thought the g27 was 9+1. thats another difference.

    True, but with the +1 grip extender, you bring the grip out to about the same as the XD40Sub and you get the same 10+1

    No, I haven't shot one yet, but like kellyclan said, there is a +1 extension available for the G27, and I would much rather have that than the XD40 subcompact, but I still don't see a benefit of using a .40 round in that sized gun, you aren't going to get a .40 round up to a high enough velocity in that barrel to expand as well as a 9mm.
