    I like the size of the G19 for accuracy, but most of the time I carry the G26 for concealment. Not much difference in recoil. I don't really miss the extra grip lenght that the 19 has over the 26. I have a Pearce grip extention for the 26, but for concealment I don't usually have the mag with the extension on it in the pistol.

    Here's a nice review of the P9 and G26 side by side:

    They both sound like great guns. Personally, I'd probably go with the Glock. I just wish they'd make a narrower version of the G26 or G19.

    Me too but I'm not going to hold my breath. I just wish Sig would make a pocket sized 9mm or maybe a 380. But smaller than the 232 and looks similar to a 239. About the same size as a Kahr MK9. That would be perfect. I'd have no need to buy any handgun other than a Sig and I would be oh so happy.

    While on the subject of Kahr / Glock, the only thing I didn't like about the Kahr was the total absense of a manual safety, even the Glock can be modified with a Cominolli safety, alas Joe Cominolli doesn't plan on making one for the Kahr. I agree that if another manufacturer made a similarly sized pistol to the Kahr I would buy it, but the absence of a manual safety (especially for pocket carry) scared the hell out of me.

    The absence of a manual safety doesn't bother me. I would just as soon carry DAO as cocked and locked. The problem I had with the Kahr it is completely overpriced for its quality. After field stripping a Glock 26 and PM9 side by side I saw a big difference especially after 500 rounds. The Kahr was showing significant wear, the Glock still looks brand new.

    Too true, the Glock is one tough little pistol. Even though I don't own one, there's no denying that they can take a beating.

    Not having a safety on a pocket gun doesn't bother me as long as it's in a pocket holster that covers the trigger.

    I have both a P9, and G26. I carry the P9 more as it is flatter and lighter. I have not found a difference in accuracy. I admit that my purpose is to hit in the center of mass, or at some range make a "credit card" head shot.

    I do not shoot much with any concealed carry gun at 25 yards. I do not consider it important what the 25 yard precise accuracy is. I realize we can all conjure up a scenario where we would have to shoot at that range, but do not consider it real world for a CHL holder considering the laws of self-defense.

    I do enough practice at 25 yds to know my guns, but 10, 15, and maybe 20 yards is more realistic for the long range shooting.

    I would not want to get rid of either, and there is nothing more reliable than a Glock, but the P9 is more comfortable to carry, although not much. I carry it in a Sparks ExC or Brommeland Def-Con.

    I sometimes carry a SA LW Compact, and admit that I do not notice the weight in either my Sparks ExC or I-Bak.

    Best,
    Jerry

    Ditto. Do it all the time with a Glock 26.
