    True, but very occasionally I have had my safety "engage itself" either from getting jostled while holstering, bumping my thumb when drawing, or various other reasons. I find that sweeping with my thumb fits into my draw stroke without adding any time, so I like to make sure it is off regardless of how I carry it.
    The lack of safeties is a selling point for the glocks but since a large amount of my time is spent around small children I like to keep them on my carry gun for now.

    The Glock 19 wouldn't be a bad choice at all. It is a lot like the 26, but a little easier to handle. Look at the M&P Shield or Ruger LC9 if you want a CC gun that totally disappears.

    Hi, and Welcome. I use a M&P9c with a 12 rd mag. Added night sights for about $125 including. The M&P9c was only $525 (ive since seen them cheaper). Great gun for carry AND night stand. Good luck.

    The SR9c is a great choice for a budget carry gun. I've tried Glocks, M&P's, HKs, XDms, etc. and haven't found one I like better than the SR9c. It's accurate and a pleasure to shoot, easy to carry, easy to conceal, and can be found for around $400. It's big enough to get a full grip on (unlike the G26) but smaller and slimmer than the G19. I've got over 3000 rounds through mine, and it comes with a 17 round full size mag and grip extention, that is nice for range and nightstand use.

    Welcome from another newb. Take a look at the Kahr CM9 I just picked one up 2 weeks ago out the door with tax included for $408 only one mag. Great size and about 20 oz fully loaded. Plan on pocket carry when I have cargo shorts on in Desantis pocket holster. So far thur 50 rounds it has been perfect.
