Default Compact 9mm G19 or G26?

For conceal purposes, considering either. Would like some opinions on which they prefer. Leaning towards the smaller 26. Going 9mm mainly due to a good supply of 9mm ammo, for a full-size S&W 9mm I already have.

Thanks.

Try them both. Personally I like the 19 for a carry gun. All you gain with the 26
is a little less height and length, they are the same thickness.

FWIW, the 19 is, in my humble opinion, the most versatile and best Glock ever made.

Glock 18 is the only one that I'd ever buy.

Between the two, my choice would be the model 19.

Good luck in whatever choice you pick, though.

Model 19 gets the nod because of the somewhat larger grip making
it far more controlable W/ not much difference in conceability---in fact,it balances better than the 26,using belt carry, due to the slightly longer length
anchoring the pistol better against your body ! More PDs issue the 19 for all
around use.......................

I have the 26 and I find it too small and it's only good for carry.I just as soon as carry mu G-17 for ccw as I find it quite easy to conceal most of the time.
