    OMG! You are alive! I've been good, very busy, but good. Tired all the time though. How about you?

    I've been crazy busy... but just finished a few assignments and got a few big projects to finish. Got at least 3 personnel actions going forward for termination... ugh... those are the worst because of all the time and work involved.

    How's life there? Enjoying the job still? How about the job search? Keep me posted, you young'un.

    It's way too big and blocky to conceal for backup. How do you want to carry a backup? Vest carrier? Ankle? Forget pocket carry, it's too big. I can't conceal it in uniform and I have my pants tailored to be fitted so it's not going to work in an ankle holster either. Just imagine your G22 in all dimensions and measure out 4" on the slide and about 1" off the butt of the gun. Then see if you think that will fit into any of the areas you want to conceal it in uniform.

    Off-duty is different because you can wear it under concealing garments that are baggier.

    So if the 27 is the mini of my 22..why wouldn't I want it aside from the weight?

    The g26 is 9mm and the g27 is 40cal. You need the g27 to match the g22 as the g27 can take the g22 mags so you don't have to worry about carrying extra mags. That's why I am switching from my G21 45acp to the G34 9mm for duty and matching it to my g26.

    I'll send you some pics of the g26 and the LCP so you can get an idea of the sizes.

    Fine, fall off the couch and land on the remote! Haha

    Maybe it is the 26 I'm thinking of. Its little and can fit anywhere really. After looking at pictures of both the 26 and the 27, they look like they're the same size, whats the difference?

    I can't fall out of a chair, I am sleeping on the sofa, haha!

    Have you ever handled a G27? It's way too big for a pocket and heavy for ankle carry, unless you wear bell bottoms on duty, it won't be easy to get to either. Check out the thread "Help me Pick a Pocket Pistol", I posted pics of my G26 and my LCP which I carry in my pocket for backup.

    I like the LCP because it's cheap ($270) but some don't like the .380ACP cartridge. I also have a J-frame Smith loaded with .38 Special +P+ Winchesters. Good guns but the Smith costs at least 2x as much. Don't rush into it, check your department policy to see what they allow for backup. They might not allow certain brands or calibers so that will narrow your search a bit.

    Also check out the various backup weapon threads in Coptalk. There's a lot of good info there. After all, you are getting decades, if not centuries of collective LE experience there. (Dragoon alone has a few hundred years)

    I'm not a hippie!! Not even close!! Ya jerk. I hope you knock your bike over for that comment!! No I don't. That's mean to the bike. I hope you sit on a cactus or something. Or fall out of your chair.

    What would you recommend for a backup weapon then?
