Default Which Glock for concealed carry?? G19 vs G26?

I'm looking to buy a Glock for concealed carry and was wondering which one I should get. I'm looking into the G19 and the G26, here's a G26 I'm interested in.

Well there is a bit of a size difference between the 19 and the 26. Basically you need to ask urself what size pistol u can conceal the best In combination of your preferred caliber and how it feels in your hand. IMO i like the g30 and g 27. I'd suggest go try one out and see what fits u best. It's a glock so ur off to a good start

IMHO the 26. I carry mine daily. I've owned a 19 (fine piece) but it was a tad large for comfortable CCW. Either way, apply Talon Grips (skateboard tape) for good grip and stability. BTW - I shot equally well at 25 and 50 feet with both the 26 and 19.

Good Luck and ENJOY!

I go with the Glock 26. It is easier to conceal and is a deadly accurate weapon. I shoot both a g26 and g34. For me, the 26 shoots a very tight group in the bulleye at 25 ft. I have the extended clip for better grip. I also use a section of bicycle inner tube around the grip to enhance my hold.

Glock 26 for the reasons mentioned above. I have the same size G27 and it's great for CCW, easier than my G23 which is the same size as the G19.

I would say the Glock 19 is the best of both worlds...Not too big and not too small.

For conceal purpose.. no doubt the G26 fits the best. I do own both but if i have to choose between the two, i'd choose G19. Just like the other said.. not too big not too small. Perfect!

G26...much easier to conceal...also check out the G27...same size as G26 but .40 caliber.
