My wife and I both have osteoarthritis. She doesn't shoot often and even then, she only shoots .38's in her S&W model 60.

I just shoot whatever I want and ignore any discomfort. I have to, it's in my man contract.

We both take OsteoBiflex and it really helps with joint pain. It's MSM, Chondroitin and Glucosomine. I believe it has SAMe in it as well. It's a bit expensive, but we generally find it on sale.

For pain, we either take Ibuprofin 800's or Aleve.

Best wishes.

The "C" Models will mess with your Night Vision.

I had to opportunity to fire a Glock 21C after dark on an outdoor range when they first came out. I was carrying a Glock 20 at the time, and after shooting both guns I didn't think there was a significant difference in how flash affected my night vision between the comp gun and the non-comp gun.

Another concern I have heard expressed is the blast & its debris being directed up towards you if you are shooting from a one-hand close-quarters type position.

Both of these are legitimate issues, but they are offset by the reduced recoil and faster return to target. I am not personally recoil sensitive so I've never opted to purchase a factory compensated Glock. Your situation might by different.

They are "Ported"; Not Compensated!

Don't why they chose the "C" designation?!

You can also switch to a steel guide spring rod; it should help with the recoil sum.

I also own a Glock 23C and the recoil is much different from other glock 23 that I have shot.

I love my Glock 22C. That is one gun that I won't part with at all. I've had mine for years and it still keeps right on working for me. I've owned compensated pistols over the years and I've loved them all. But this Glock is the best one ever.

Since you got a G26, maybe you need an extended floorplate on the mags that allows you to rest your pinky in the gun, that's the reason I got a G23, it didn't felt right holding the tiny G27 or G26.
Resting the little finger on the gun will give you more control and greatly reduce the recoil felt on your wrists.

In a Dirtbike accident, I got the navicular bone fractured in my shooting hand in 1988 and it's still fractured to this day.
In 1997 when I got my gun, my main concern when buying the gun was the ability to fire it without hurting my wrist and with the G23 I can rest all my fingers in the gun while firing and have never had any problems with it even thou it's .40.
Good luck with your gun.........
