    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!

    I carry a 19 daily and have for about a month, in my opinion its the best of both worlds. With that being said, if I had both, I'd carry the 26. If its strictly carry go 26, if its for anything and everything like mine, I'd go 19.

    Can I suggest you look at the 36? I have had all of them and find that the 36 tucks in tighter than my 19, gives me a somewhat better grip than the 26 ...and makes big holes.

    I have a 27 and for the money it's an excellent firearm plus it's a joy to shoot

    I find it hard to carry conceal a double stack weapon in warm weather. I use single stack .45. If you can look at the G23. I cool weather carry doubl .40

    I carry a 19 most of the time and periodically I swap for the 23 just so it don't feel left out. I think that if you put a pinky extender on the 26 or 27 then you are bringing the level of concealability back up near a 19 or 23 only with a smaller round count. So that's why I chose the compacts. That being said the subcompacts are fine, accurate, reliable weapons, just like any Glock.

    Very nice combo. If I could only have one, I like dat G23 and the possible caliber change. A G19 will always be a G19. A G23 can become a G19 or a G32. I like that option.

    I was carrying my G22 until I got my G27. So far I like the sub for a carry weapon.
