thinking about Glock model 26 "baby "glock,anyone have one? What do you carry?:confused: :fish:
No Glocks here. I rarely carry, but when I do it is a Sig Sauer P239. Mne is chambered for the .40 S&W (I think 9MM is optional though).

I looked at the G26 and opted for the G22 in 40 S&W
I carry mine concealed fine. I am a bigger guy.
My main issue with the 26 was how small it is, it even had the little finger extension on the mags.
I'm glad I got the 22, my buddy got the 23 which is a compact, not a sub and it still didn't feel right.
It's what you are comfortable with.
I love my glock.

I have the Glock23 in .40 but found it too hard to try and conceal in the summer(double stacked mags are uncomfortable if you carry in the waistband)I switch to a S&W Chief Special also a .40 in the summer.You might want to consider a thinner framed handgun for the summer than the Glocks if you plan on carring in the waistband.

The Sig P239 is an excellent carry weapon, especially due to its 3.6 inch barrel and single stack magazine for a thinner profile. Comes in 9mm, .40 S&W, and also .357SIG.

Personally, I'm kinda partial to a Sig P229R in .40 for now.:)

I pack the 26, there are times as stated a single stack would be nice.
Work for me has me with a tie; I avoid coats...............
OK I guess I'll have to check out a single stack for CC. :D

Like stated earlier, get Your hands on as many different types as possible - see what works/fits You the best. For Me, it's a full size 1911. Do on occation, carry a S&W 325PD or 5" XD 9 - depends on the "gun of the day" :lol: . C-man

I carry a s&w 357 revolver. as this fits me to a tee and as I do not plan on having an extended gun fight, the 5 rounds are enough. I think it is a personal decision and you will have to see what fits you.

Glocks are a fine weapon as are most of todays weapons. try many and then decide.

sig sauer 229 40 for me.... nice and compact and shoots amazing... little pricy but well worth it if you had to use it for protection. I dont carry it as much as i would like to but if i need it i know i could count on it.... i had the glock 22 40 cal and didnt like it as much... built like a square... and didnt shoot as good for me (personal oppinion of course) my cop buddies seem to like them.

Recently picked up a Taurus 24/7 PRO in .40S&W with Heine sights. Mainly because it fits my hand very well (small), and even for a double stack, it still conceals nicely. I haven't completed the training course, but will soon.

Like others have said, try different guns and go with what you feel comfortable with.

The 26 is a good pistol. I carry an XD9 sub, which is pretty much the same size as the 26. My pinky rides under the grip which feels funky when first picked up, but I don't notice it anymore. I bought a 16 round extended mag the other day which gives it a full grip with a 3" barrel. I may use it for a backup mag, because it's harder to conceal then the shorter 10 round mag.
