I just watched my son-in-law go thru the same choice for a cc gun. He owns several includeing an older ruger P97 and a g19 but he is build kinda like you . 5-9 and 140lb with a 26" waist and he could not get that glock to come close to hidding. I screwed up and told him if he picked something out I would buy it and a quality holster. So after looking at and shooting a few includeing the g26 he ended up shuffling between a couple pistols both single stack and double stacks.
He went with A KT p11. Smaller and thinner than the g26 at 14oz empty , 10 round cap with a option of a factory 12 round mag or a s&w 59 mag for 15 round capacity as back up. Double action trigger pull is heavier than the glock but still lighter than some out there. He picked a cheap adjustable holster to help find a carry position and so far has no enterest in a better holster. DeSantis sof-tuk. Its adjustable for height and tilt too. He tried a couple of my holsters with a like sized pistol and could not deal with a bigger ,heavier holster designs. He wears his pistol 12 hours plus a day too. Price a whole 18 bucks!! Keeps the spare mag in a old belt carry nylon knife pouch The KT p11's have been around for 17 years now and run well. His seems to shoot what ever is in them mag too. For the cost of the basic glock, 500 dollars around here, he has a high cap pistol and holster and a 500 rounds of practice ammo and 150 rounds of carry ammo.
