I fired recently my 4 in Highway Patrolman and my 27-2 8 3/8 - actually at the same session. There was a difference, with the 27-2 feeling more manageable BUT I also had target grips on it vs magna grips on the 28-2. I'm sure the grip type played into it some, but I noticed the difference. The 27-2 was mild whereas the 28-2 was snappy. I enjoyed the 28-2 more, kind of like riding a horse vs a bucking bronco or something, it was more exciting. My accuracy was nearly the same, as it was only a 50 ft range.
