Good video. Twice I have found myself in gun stores comparing the G 22, G 23 and the G 27. The first time I bought the 22. Then summer rolled around and I found it alittle big for shorts and a t-shirt. Now I have the best of bith worlds a 22 and a 27.

Good video. My wife has the 26 and I have the 19. Both have been trouble free and I like them both, but the 19 fits my hand better for the reasons explained in the video, and my wife's 26 fits her hand better than the 19.

Nice job. You did good.

For me, each pistol fits a specific purpose. When I am wearing a good covering garment the G19 gets the workout at the 4 o'clock position. On my Harley scooter the G26 fits into my leather jacket front pocket.

On the rare occasions I've talked to LEOs (the convenience store, the donut shop, the diner, etc.) none have noticed the concealed Glocks.

Had a G-26 for 10 years, traded it for a G-19. Love it more and now have a second G-19. Both the G-26 and both G-19's function flawlessly with no issues. Gen3 for those thinking out there.

Good summary.

I like how you leave it for the viewer to decide, even though the correct answer is 26

I have both a 19 and a 26. The 19 is my "House" gun and the 26 is my daily CCW piece....I have a +1 Pearce grip adapter on the 26 mag and I usually carry an extra G-19 mag as a reload.....

I have all three sizes, G17, G19, and a G26. 19 is perfect my hand, G26 will do find with the extended mag, G17 is too much to handle.

My first, and only, Glock was the 19 model and I like it a lot. However, for some reason, I shoot my step-father's 26 way better. I knocked a good 30 seconds off my time in two GSSF matches with the 26, and my groupings at the range are better. They don't feel very different in my hands, so I'm not sure what's causing it.

I too shoot my 26 better than my 19. I can't explain it but I can shoot the 26 accurate and fast at the same time. I can shoot the 19 fast and I can shoot it accurate (not as accurate) but I can't seem to do both at the same time nearly as well. I get back on target amazingly fast with the smaller site distance of the 26 and the recoil seems non existent with it. Totally backwards to the rest of the Glock world. I'm almost embarrassed to admit it :D

I use the Pearce +1 extensions on my EDC G26 mags as well. Good choice and it doesn't beef it up so much that it takes away from it being "subcompact".

I have both and carry both, I don't have any real preference for one over the other, other than I like the G19's grip better. As to which I carry more, merely comes down to what I'm wearing that day and how hot it is outside. IF I'm wearing jeans and a shirt (tee or button down), likely going to carry my 19, or if I'm in a suit. If I'm wearing shorts (basketball or cargo) and tighter fitting shirt and it's hot as **** outside, prob going with my summer gun (my 26). In terms of "accuracy" that depends on the shooter and their level of proficiency, for me they both shoot like Colt Gold Cups (don't tell 1911 truthers I said that LOL).

I shoot my 26 as accurately as my 19, at least up to distances of 50 feet. Since its my concealed carry gun I feel comfortable with that. It took a little practice with the 26 to shoot it well, but not too much. And the 2 finger grip becomes a non-issue with practice.

The 26 is also better for for concealed carry with the light clothing we wear in Florida in the summertime.
