    Sweet. 'Love the G26, and it loves right back.

    I don't do ammo snobbery, but FWIW I usually carry 124gr +P Speer Gold Dots, be it short or long barrels.

    I like a +p in a short barrel. Considering most ammo comparisons are with a large frame. Personally i use 127 +P+ Rangers. in my short 9mm
    Glock 36, 20, 30, 29, PX4 Storm SC 9mm, Colt Delta Elite, Colt Agent, Sig C3, Kimber CDP 2, Firestar 40

    I carry Remington Golden Sabre 124 gr +p in my GLOCK 19. I would like to get some of their bonded bullets.

    Congrats on the new 26, they are sweet little guns with a pinky extension.

    they make ammo specifically for short barreled guns but i have never carried it in my 26. probably cause i haven't seen it. i carry either the HST or Gold Dot in 124gr +p in my G26 and XD9 Service. never felt undergunned. if your looking for a IWB holster i use the CompTac C-Tac and highly recommend it.

    I'm jealous, I'd like one of these. Think I'll sell my little Sig for one. It's pretty but I need functional.

    Congratulations on the new Glock! G26.......sweet! My wife carries the G26 and I got her the Federal HST 124gr+P for carry. Personally, I like it, but rather have my G27 in the same size and the 40S&W. As far as the short barrel vs. everything else barrel ammo, I'm not much one into the marketing schemes. What you hit with whatever you have is going to have some effect at close range...stay on target and shoot until the desired effect takes place. I say leave all the special ballistics for the longer ranges and for large game. You're not going to use your G26 for hunting right? The human body is very fragile. Some parts are more fragile than others. Take aim accordingly, and use the ammo your pistol works with best. Forget all that other nonsense that makes you second guess things. Your focus should be simple.
    Glock on!

    The 26 is what I want. I need to get rid of my 27 first though. Don't need both. I like the 9mm over the 40 S&W. Just can't warm up to it!

    In my G26 I carry either 147g speed gold dots or 147g federal HST's when I can find them.
