All good suggestions here - thanks. Now I've got someone (offline) trying to talk me out of 9mm and up to at least .40. Can I compensate with better ammo (higher grain)? Have a bunch of 115gr Winchester hollow-pt. Guy's telling me to to at least get near 140gr. True? Again, we're talking HD here, as well as CCW.

I have a 26 and find it pretty easy to shoot well and it is very easy to carry IWB. I have pretty big hands and use the 12 round mag's for general use and switch to the 10 round mag for CCW. I do not have a 19 but I am sure it is a fine pistol (as Glocks go). I also have a 34 that runs well.

I like the 19. I have no trouble with CC. I like having 15 rounds.

The bigger caliber you go, the more stopping power you will have. From everything I have read, the one shot stop percentages are not that much different between the .45acp and the 9mm or anything in between. I say you should carry whatever you are comfortable with. If you can consistantly shoot a 9mm better than you can shoot a .40, you should carry a 9mm. I would rather hit someone 10 out of 10 times with a 9mm than 2 of 10 from a .40s&w

I have the G26 and with 15rd mags works great for me at the range and with the 10rder's for carry.
