Hi guys. I promise this is my last post regarding this issue (G19 vs G26), but from the responses I have received from members of the forum, I have a very focused question that I was hoping you guys could clarify for me:
In many of the responses I have received, this seems to be a common answer: "You can't go wrong with either one, but if you are going to add a pinkie extension to the G26, just go with the 19."
That response seems slightly counter-intuitive to me as follows: If I have the G26 and add the extension (or add a G19 Magazine with a Sleeve) then I have a full size grip, but I always have the OPTION to use the standard magazine if I need better concealment. This is the basic "you can always make the G26 bigger, but you can never make the G19 smaller" argument.
However, because I respect the opinion of so many members of this forum and because so many of you have come to the opposite conclusion, I must be missing something. Does the Glock 19 shoot better than a G26 with a G19 magazine and sleeve? What other criteria/characteristics are causing so many of you to recommend the G19 rather than putting an extension on the G26 and seemingly having the best of both worlds.
I plan to make my final decision by tomorrow at lunchtime. As always, any insight is greatly appreciated.
