    How to choose between apples n' oranges...

    Get both! Hers's my new Ruger SP101 & Gen3 Glock 26!


    I've been looking at both these pistols for a couple years. To me they kind of represent my idea of the toughest, simple, most reliable, and generally usefull sized revolver & auto handguns for CC. Ran a couple of hundred rounds through both, without any hickups, and they were a pleasure to shoot. They're night and day of course. I lean towards the heavier SP101 purely out of my love of stainless steel and the revolver aesthetic, but the Glock is a little smaller, lighter, and has twice the capacity. This is my first Glock and I gotta' admit, the koolaid taste pretty dang good. Thats why I like options! In my day to day world I wouldn't feel undergunned with either.

    Next thing is to get them both holsters, night sights, and drop in a NY1 trigger spring for the Glock. Love 'em!

    Get both
    Good sound idea. You've picked a couple of winners there. Getting them both makes sense to me.

    A pair for all occasions! Good for you. Too much is made of capacity. For the few % of times more is needed, so would a shotgun.

    Nice set of guns.

    Thanks for the compliments guys!

    I traded in my CZ PCR for the Glock and bought the Ruger straight up. The PCR is a great pistol, but I thought it just a little to large for what I wanted, and even when the trigger smoothed out after 2000 rounds it still felt 'cammy' which helped make the DA/SA transition a little jerky for me. Still want to one day get a tricked out CZ SP-01 or 75B for a nice range gun though.

    Good choice, think if I had to pick between the two, would have made the same decision.

    Both great firearms.

    love my G26....but would never make any modification to a handgun that started with the words "NewYork".
    Both your choices show great research and dedication to simplicity. Very nice.

    I would use a drop in factory glock 3.5lb trigger and standard glock spring and avoid ny1 or ny2 trigger springs
