I voted Glock 27. I shoot mine damn near as accurately as my 22 and 23, although accuracy drops off at 25 yards.

Gen4 Glock 26.

Always wanted to like the Gen3 26s, but never felt right in the hand.
The Gen4 grip is just slightly small, but feel totally different to me - hence why I finally picked one up.

All my Glocks ride in a Nightingale Leather Raptor IWB holster (VMII clone) for a Glock 17. Extremely comfortable holster.

98% of the time I carry it with the flush fit mag. If I'm running to the store or something real quick I might pop in a +2 and use Dustin's OHC kydex IWB clip holster.

Do most of you g26/27/33 guys use a mag extension of some sort (which one) or flat base plate? Holster choice?
Pics would be great, too.


It depends -

For ankle carry (Alessi) or pocket carry (Galco Horsehide) I use the flush 10 round mag.
For IWB (G-Code Incog) or OWB (Rosen Premier) I use a 12 round mag (Pearce +2, Glock 12 or Magpul 12).
For a spare mag I always carry a Glock 17 rounder.

I recently went back to DA/SA for a number of reasons including AIWB.

On the 26, I’d carry with a Pearce +0 installed. It doesn’t increase round count so no concern about the mag spring and it allows a full handed grip as I’ve never liked curling a pinky under the mag. My spare mag on belt with be a Factory 12rd Glock magazine made specifically for the 26.
Carried in a Stealthgear Ventacore IWB or Bladetech Klipt.



He possess great skills.

Glock 26 is an excellent option.

Voted G26. However, the P224 is a great gun. On paper, it doesn't make much sense, but it carries nice and is a sweet shooter.

Ive always enjoyed the Glock 26,Ive had one for over 10 years and shot it a lot,never had the first bit of a problem with it, only thing I ever messed with on it were the sights. I used to carry mine owb in a galco holster and it would just disappear, loaded with speer gold dot 124g+p and an extra mag, I never ever felt undergunned with it. I later switched to the g19 for my CC pistol and now I can open carry as much as I please with nobody saying a word unless I go into the post office so I walk around with a 6.5" super blackhawk bisley 454 on my hip.

I use the factory flat base plates on the gun and spare mag.
I carry appendix at around 2'oclock. I have the holster made by Zorn holsters with a custom made clip to sit a little bit lower on the belt line. It's what I carry 99% of the time.
As far as magazine holsters, I have a few, but haven't found one that I like comfort and concealment wise, so I usually stick it in the lower side pocket on the left side of my pants.

I've been carrying a P30sk LEM since the week it was released and my preorder arrived at my LGS. Amazing firearm that shoots like a full size pistol.

I am frequently asked at the range what I'm shooting as my example loves to make 10 yard one ragged hole groups.

Very easy to carry and with a pair of VP9/P30 mags I never feel under gunned.

Carry with the flat base plate, spare is a g19 mag with Xgrip. Holster is a discontinued X Concealment kydex.

I carry the 33 with a Pearce +0.

The 33 is actually the reload for my 32 which is my primary carry.

The 33 is my bug on duty to my 31.



Not minority enough!

Not really. The 9c/40c is larger, a 'tweener' sized between the G26 and G19. Only fatter than either.


They're not exactly identical in dimensions, but they're very close. The M&P9c is not noticeably larger than the G26.

I'm not sure where you're getting that the M&P9c is "fatter". It is exactly the same width as the G26 and G19: 1.18". If anything, the oval shape of the M&P9c grip make it feel thinner in the hand than the blockier Glocks.

The M&P9c is only 0.29" longer overall than the G26, but is 0.58" shorter than the G19.

And the M&P9c is only 0.13" taller than the G26, but holds 2 more rounds, while being 0.69" shorter than the G19.

Used to run a full sized XDM in IDPA, so I put together a 3.8" Sub Compact XDM with similar components for carry. Fits my hand great, shoots great, although I haven't carried in a while...been loving my PPS M2 LE for the last year or so.

I really really like my Sphinx subcompact alpha. Shoots very well and very accurate too.

13 plus one capacity and very concealable.

Glock 27 is what I carry, it was also my backup for my Glock 22.

I would like to get a Glock 26.

I carry a G19 in fall winter and G26L in the summer. No brainer. Also a spare G17 mag in fall and winter and a G19 mag in spring summer.


For ME:
DA/SA= Sig 9mm
Striker fired= Glock 9mm
If it's a .45= 1911
Suppressed= HK in .45
I like anything in 10mm

VP9SK has been my carry gun since May. Extremely happy with it even though it is a fair bit bigger than some on that list.

Gave up working on VP9SK for person with only slightly smaller than average hands. even with all of the "Small" grip pieces in place the trigger was still a bit too far away. Distance from trigger face to where web of hand goes is critical and excessive in VP9SK. Additionally, recoil spring is so stiff that only factory warm ammo functions. No replacement for recoil spring found. No chance to use crafted ammo. Only good thing is that H&K will sell two replacement springs to bring required trigger force down to about 4.5 pounds-force.

Several G19 size excellent pistols exist: M&P M2.0 4"; PPQ-M2 4", Canik Elite TP9SF, and maybe FN 509, but not the somewhat smaller Springfield XDs 4.

Smaller might be better for carry. First requirement is that pistol must fit hand (be sure to try optional, included grips). Everyone is a bit different.
