I really am a fan of this little gun, but it just doesn't work for me. This is the second one I've tried and came to the same conclusion I did five years ago. With the pinky +2 extensions, that’s 13 rounds of 9 in a nice small package but there just isn't enough grip on the gun and it doesn't give me any noticeable concealment advantage over a 19.
I know there a many fans of the baby glocks out there but I cannot run the 26 like a 19, it's not even close. Draws or pick-ups are never as consistent, shot to shot is slower, and reloads aren't in the same ballpark. Great little gun but the gain just doesn't make up for what I give up when carrying this gun. My experimenting is done, for a second time, and it moves on to a new owner this afternoon.
