If you do choose C3 carry, Glock is an excellent choice given the ease to rack a round and no external levers that could get in the way.
    This is the best advice on this thread...carry the way YOU are comfortable.

    I carry a Glock, and if I ever have to use it defensively, I do not want anything at all to be necessary between my draw, my aim, and a bang. As you may have surmised from that, I carry my Glock with a round in the chamber.

    I can't quite get my head around the concept of the original poster carrying a gun whose trigger he had just characterized as "dangerous." My feeling is that either the poster feels the trigger on his G26 is dangerous and therefore should have decided long-ago not to carry it, or he is overstating just how dangerous he feels the trigger is. I don't think that I would ever think to myself, "I really feel that this trigger is dangerously light; but I'll continue to carry the gun for defense anyway." Is that really what is going on here?

    all ways one in the chamber,,,no matter the gun. keep fringer off trigger untill you are ready to shoot. range time is your best friend when you don't feel sure about yourself and a gun. if all else fails it is time to move on to a gun that you like and can shoot without any concerns.

    My LC9 has a very long trigger pull and I would not hesitate to carry it with the saftey off. Kinda like a DA revolver. My Sr40c has about a 5 lb trigger and I keep the saftey on with it I practice with a saftey sweep on my extraction. Never fired a Glock so can't help with that.

    Just another example of why the 1911 platform is superior to a striker. Cocked & locked , not a problem.

    Carry my G27 daily with one in the pipe, have yet to blow a hole in my leg. Countless police officers and military guys I know can say the same. No trigger pull weight or length can prevent a ND. Only YOU can do that.

    If you're afraid of your gun, or in anyway uncomfortable with it, then you should not be carrying it at all until you can do so with confidence.

    I will be carrying a G19 or a Kahr CW9 when my plastic arrives. I have been carrying around the house everyday now for a couple weeks to break in my holster, get a feel for them, and been practicing on my draw for gun holster combo I have. If you have not handled guns much, or even if you have, but not in a CCW manner, I think this is critical. I have found that drawing your weapon correctly is not as easy as I thought. Pulling your shirt up, getting the proper grip, putting fingers where they need to be be(finger off tigger until ready to fire), proper aiming techniques will take practice for most. I can't imagine just getting my CHL and strapping on a gun and going out in public...I know a couple buddies that did. If it is this difficult to do as a novice now, imagine what it woukld be like if it was for real? What does this have to do with the OP post...I was contiplating the same thing, thinking I would not carry chambered, but the more I "practice" at home, the more comfortable I am about putting one in the pipe when that time comes, Kel

    A good friend of mine always was fond of saying the reason they call carrying a weapon Not chambered Israeli carry was because you need god on your side to do so. He said it was a good way to see him at the end of the day. I wouldn't run any lighter then 3.5 on a glock but that's my opinion ymmv. I am completely comfortable carrying loaded just like on the 1911 cocked and locked. A glock is safe just as long as you don't pull the trigger. I keep my G20 chambered at all times when carrying

    Something about the Israeli carry thing, is that while it may be true that they carry without one in the chamber it is also true that they train a hell of a lot more than your average CC'er, and can draw and rack a slide faster than you can get your gun out of your holster! (Slight exaggeration added)
