    Wow, it's been a long time since I've been on the forum.

    Still loving my G19. I have purchased multiple Glocks since the 19, the only I don't like is the G26. I put the pearce extensions on and my finger always gets pinched.
    It's also not nearly as comfortable to shoot as the G19, so it is going to be sold one of these days.

    I also picked up a M&P Pro Core in 9mm for use in PPC competitions and a Glock 17 for IDPA. Love them all!

    I did get the Shield too.....also very pleased with it.

    Welcome back. I'm the same way on the 26, I just don't really like it. 19, 17, 36, 42...etc I like and I know most people seem to really like the 26 but it doesn't float my boat. I told my son he could have it when he gets his concealed carry.

    Regardless of what others say about adding the grip extension, the G26 is still easier to conceal than a Glock 19.

    My wife is 63 and has some issues with arms and legs. She can handle her G26 fairly easy the hardest part is learning to RACK THE SLIDE. With the right move it is not that difficult. Though she doesn't have her license just yet. She feels it is the easiest firearm with the best capacity for her to carry.

    Glock 19 is very easy to tear down and is the standard answer to all gun related questions in here Just sayin

    Help an older woman select a gun

    My daughter (25) wanted something to carry and keep at home. We tested a lot of them at the range. She found my Glock 19 too heavy and cumbersome and then we tried the 9 mm shield. She liked it and was her second choice. She settled on the 42 Glock as it was the right size gentle recoil and she was far more accurate than any other ; it was not even close. She was much faster on recovery shots as well. The most important two things are accuracy and ability to get the second shot(s) off.

    IMO if you can't hit your target quickly multiple times it's the wrong one for you.


    Someday. That’s a dangerous word. It’s really just a code for ‘never’.
