    Glock 26 or 19/23?

    I have a walther pps and a glock 26. I carry the pps more just because it's thinner and easier, so it got me thinking if I should trade the 26 for the 19 or 23. I would like a gun with a rail so I can mount a light on it. Also thought about doing a grip chop on a g19 to a 26 size and make it easier to carry.
    Or I guess I could just wait for a while and buy a 19/23. But i guess if you only had one glock would it be the 26 or 19?


    So many choices.

    Both. I'll give up neither.

    Folks say that the 26 is so close to the 19 that you might as well get the 19. I say the 26 does carry considerably easier.

    But I shoot a 19 pretty well. Heck, everybody does. It really is about perfect for a carry gun. But I like my 26 just as much.

    Pick what you want. You can't screw this one up.

    I'm thinking since I have the pps I should get the 19 for carry and hd and add the 26 later.

    I would go for the G23. .40 is about the same price as 9mm and the G23 & G19 pistols are the same size. I have a G23 and love it.

    Only one Glock? For me the answer is 19. Absolutely!

    Get the G-19 and keep the G-26! You can use your G-19 mags in your G-26 IMHO, there is always room for a G-19 in your collection.

    I had a G-26 for 10 years and 4 years ago stepped up to a G-19 which 2 years later had a Twin. I carry it and absolutely love both.

    It's clear you enjoy carrying the superior weapon (PPS). What you should do is sell the G26 and upgrade to a PPQ. Free yourself from this Glock silliness!

    Wish I could get both, and I probably should just save up and buy both. Unless someone wants to do a trade.

    Can't go wrong with a 19,
    BUT....since you have the 9mm 26, why not the 23? Awesome mid sized forty!

    You could get the G23, a .357 Sig barrel and a 9mm conversion Bbl. and G19 or G17 mags and have a very versatile set up.

    Since you already have a 9mm why not get the G23 and have a weapon capable of using heavier bullets with slightly more power.

    That's probably what I will do. It's making more sense to get the 23 than keep the 26. I carry the pps mostly anyways.

    As others have said, if you go with the .40, you can buy a 9mm barrel and a couple mags and practically have a G19.
