After reading about the snappiness of the .40, I was reluctant to buy my 27. After actually shooting it, I found that it wasn't as bad as I've read. Even my wife who suffers from severe Carpal Tunnel in both hands didn't dislike it at all. I think you should shoot one before passing judgment based on internet reviews. You may find, as I did, that it isn't bad at all.
