    I carry my XD9SC (close to the size of a G26) appendix in a Mr. Softy, it's a breeze. Also carry my 442 J frame there too, it's way more comfortable.

    Only big difference to me is having a 16 round mag in my back pocket or a 5 round speed strip in front pocket.

    G26 all the way. Share ammo and mags with your 19, plus 11 shots instead of a 5/6

    Poll Update

    Well the Glock 26 is back in the race
    11 for the snubbie
    10 for the Glock

    Re: snubbies seems like the group goes for the Smiths. My understanding of experiences with Taurus is that some are a great buy and others are a constant problem. "The Forrest Gump Box of Cholocate" issue. Any experience with the Ruger LCR? I pulled the trigger and it was great

    Glock 26 or snubbie?

    I recommend the snubbie. I own and use snub .38 Special revolvers and have never wanted a Glock 26.

    I actually only pointed out the virtues of each before, but didn't vote .

    10+1 of reliable 9mm beats 5 of reliable .38, all day long. G26!

    They are similar. G26 is "the same gun" 1/2" shorter length & height. I'm a big guy: 6' 220lbs and the 27 feels alot easier for me to conceal. I do not feel it is redundant. My .02

    I'm 5'7", 158lb with a Glock 26. I carry IWB at 4.00. I don't have a problem at all concealing it. A t-shirt will do the job, tucked in or not. The holster you use does make a difference (well, it does to me).
    I would vote for the 26. It's a Glock and you can hold more ammo.

    I have G26, G23, S&W 60 357 mag, Taurus Ultra Light 38 Special, Springfield Armory EMP 40, Taurus 709 Slim, Sig P238 380, Walther PPK +others that aren't pertinent to this topic.

    Why settle for one?

    If I could carry all the time and really required to 'conceal', and, I had to chose only one. Slim is in! It doesn't have the mag capacity of the G26, but a spare mag will take seconds to get into the fight.

    I like snubbies too, but capacity and reloading is downfall. If I had to carry a snubby, it'd be the 357 mag. Same weight as G26, but those 357 mags really do damage, and surprisingly with a little practice, not that challenging to shoot.

    Bottom line, the real question in my mind would be, which one do I buy first?

    Not trying to be a smart Alec, but get both. Ask ANYBODY on here and they'll tell you..buy a Glock and it'll only be your first! I have the 27 and I fight the urge everyday. I also have a snubbie and I have to say that there is a time and place for each one. I prefer the Glock for firepower, but there are times when I want the little bit smaller snub.
    Both will still be cheaper than a nice 1911

    The 26 will conceal easier and feel lighter on your belt than the 19. I would rather have 11 rounds of 9mm in a weapon with a 5.5 # trigger than 5 rounds of .38 in a weapon with a 12 -14# trigger.

    Nothing against snubbies. I have two j frames. I usually only carry my 640 in thunderwear while jogging outside. Other than that, it is my 27 that gets most of the carry time.

    Get the 26.

    Interesting

    Now the Glock is in front by more than a nose
    15 to 12

    Actually as a number of posters have pointed out-get them both. And I likely will. A snubbie would give me the greatest versitility immediately. But staying with the 9mm has advantages. I can buy Federal at Wally Word for $10 a box and not cause alarm at home. The .38 I would buy 1,000 rds at $300 and red flags might start waiving as I get back into handguns. I have ordered a AA .22 conversion kit for the 19 to save cost at the range.
