    under stress you wont know what profficient is until it happens...experience is something you get right after you need it most....

    The thing is that you can be plenty proficient while practicing but when put into a situation not so much. I'm crazy accurate with my glock 26 however if the paper started shooting back I have no idea what would happen to my groups

    KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!!

    I once saw a .44 magnum blackhawk with a .38 cylinder fitted to it.

    Still wondering what the he!! the maker of that thing was thinking (or smoking).

    Exchanging [accurate] fire in a SD scenario does not establish handgun proficiency. Having the ability to safely operate your firearm during the exchange, does.

    If an operator fails to deploy or engage a safety feature during a hi-stress SD situation,..he/she has not trained properly and is therefore not proficient with the firearm.

    Kinda like "forgetting" to apply the brakes of an automobile when approaching a stop sign.

    Approaching a stop sign is not a high stress event.

    Stop signs don't try to kill you!

    Forgetting to apply the brakes, can.

    You know what would be kinda cool? Glock 17 chopped for G26 mags. Now that would be really different.

    There are definitely some practical advantages of the shorted grip G19 in comparison to the G26. For one thing you have a rail which the G26 doesn't have. You also have slightly better accuracy and less recoil...and the slightly longer frame shouldn't really effect conceal ability. I'd say it's a very practical modification, although not my cup of tea just because it doesn't look quite as pretty and you lose resale value.

    I really like it. I own and carry both a g26 and g19 and can see the benefits of having a cut down 19.

    One day I am going to do it also.

    I can see why you did it. Its the reason I had a second thought of getting my G26. With the G19, you have the longer slide and availability to use the rail.

    I got some similar comments when I heat stippled my G19. But I love it, and that's what matters. This is a whole new level though. Glad you got what you wanted out of it. It's an interesting idea. That last 1/2" of the G19 grip is what causes my problems when CC'ing it. But I just don't worry much about it. Something to think about. Stippling the grip may cover up some of the noticeable problems with your grip, like the 1/2 Glock logo.

    And to answer the question about stippling causing problems. What I noticed is that you are not removing material, just heating up and redistributing the top layer. The small amount of material moved should not make a difference. Mine's been done for several months and no problems. And the difference it makes in the grip surface is very noticeable. It provides a rock solid grip.

    The next thing I am planning to do is a grip reduction. At that time I will probably do some sort of stippling.
