    My new ccw gun

    I picked me up a gen 3 Glock 26 today for my new ccw. I know, I know, pictures, but I'm tired and it looks like every other Glock. I have a M&P9c and even though they look close in size the baby glock feels much lighter and smaller. Works very good in my cargo pockets where the M&P did not. Plus all my M&P holsters fit the gun.

    I was going to get a lc9 but with all the mixed reviews I just couldn't do it. Plus the grip is to long. I'm lucky Glock grips fit my hand very good.

    Nice choice! I came close to buying a G26 but it was a little too big for carrying in my jean pocket without printing.

    You've made a fine choice in 9mm...it should treat you well.

    I hear you. When I wear jeans I go IWB with the M&P9c. I'm used to the bulge in cargo pockets as I've been pocketing a J-frame. No one cares about a bulge in your pocket. My other pocket with my keys and wallet bulge out more. I'm hoping now to use the Glock for all purposes, iwb and pocket.

    I've been toying with the idea of just shooting one gun only (glock 26) for a year and have it feel like part of me instead of using and shooting different guns.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    I looked at the 26 but went with the 19. I think we both made excellent choices.

    Congrats on your new G26. When I got mine, I was torn between the M&P9c and the G26, too. Even though the 9c holds two more rounds, it seems to be sized in between the G26 and the G19. I find the G26 a little easier to deal with when pocket carrying than the 9c.

    My hands also favored the longer reach to the trigger of the G26. The rental 9c that I shot had me shooting/flinching low due to its shorter reach to the trigger. The reset feel on the Glock is light years ahead of the M&P, too.

    One thing I did for my G26 was to get the GAP Enterprises magazine floorplates. They have a protrusion on the front that forms a hook under your ring finger for added control. These floorplates don't add any extra length to the magazines.

    One caution about carrying a gun in your cargo pocket - it is very difficult to draw the gun while moving.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.
