    So, get a 5/8" Pearce grip extension. It will give you a pinky rest that feels much like the Glock 23 grip.

    Well, I made a purchase today. I hope and think that after all the research I've done that this gun will serve me well and do everything that I want it to.

    Good Choice. G36 has been my EDC for 4+ years. It will serve you well!

    You are going to LOVE that '36'...you two are going to become lifelong friends.

    If that was the case, I'd just buy another G19 and get another 5 rounds too!!!!! The grip extensions negate the whole idea of a subcompact....you'll figure it out.

    I put 20 rounds through it yesterday and it feels REALLY good. I think I'm going to put some grip tape on it because it feels a little slippery when my hands are sweaty. Also, I'd like to get an extended slide release, but will that affect how it fits in my holster?

    They both make great guns. See if you can find a range where you can rent both and give them a try. Buy the one that suits you best.

    I put some tread tape on the handle today and did some more shooting. It feels a lot better in my hands now. Are the sights that come on it OK? I know I have only been shooting it for two days, but I feel like I might be more accurate if the rear U sight had a smaller gap. I read on trijicon's website that their rear site has a WIDER gap than the factory glock sight. Im guessing the wider gap makes it easier to aim fast but makes the shot a little harder to be accurate, is that right?

    I purchased my G36 with Glock night sites which work really well. If you Google Glock night sites you will find several sites that sell them.

    Did you make the cut outs yourself or did you purchase them already cut to fit?

    Just a thought. If you are looking for a light carry and are ok with 5 rounds you might look at the 357 caliber polymer revolvers. The hammer less s&w or LCR is a great carry choice. Also 357 accepts 38 +p. just a thought.

    I cut them myself. I layed notebook paper over the grips and shaded the paper in with a pencil which left an outline of how I wanted to cut the paper. I then traced the notebook paper cutout on the back of the tread tape and cut it too.

    I am already noticing that after two days the tread tape is scuffing and starting to fray the sewing on my IWB holster. I dont know if Im going to keep the tread tape since the holster was $70 and its already ruined...

    Not a Glock fan, I'll cast my vote for the Sig.
