    Which single stack 9mm do you want the most...

    XDs9 - or - G26s

    Don't be a dick and say "both".

    Since the G26 is a double stack it limits the answer.

    I think we're playing "make believe".

  8. Love my Shield 9mm and promised myself I won't chase the XDs or a single stack offering from Glock, time will tell but I sure like the feel of my friends XDs 45acp.

    I second this, best ccw handgun under $250. Plus it's hard to find anything 9mm as light and slim.

    pf9 owners, assemble!

    I'd like to have an xds, but good luck finding one at a reasonable price.

    I'd like a g26 as well, but it's a little redundant to what I already have. I'd buy one anyway if I had the extra coin.

    Why are pocket guns the most fun?

    I shot one last week, trigger pull seemed a mile long and recoil wasnt the most pleasant. I ran a mag through it, one mag was enough for me. I'd never buy one!

    First gun I've ever shot that I was over after just one mag.

    I already have the LC9 and I actually really like the trigger. I would love to have a 9mm XDs but if Glocks comes out with a single stack 9 (which I'm calling the G26s) I'd be torn choosing between the two...which is the reason for my topic. which would you choose, XDs or G26s?

    26s would be a good designation for it. I love the 26.

    It's not for fun at the range, or target shooting competitions. It's for being small and light enough to carry anywhere, and at that it beats out every other pistol on the market today.

    Is Glock planning a single stack 9 or is it just wishful thinking?

    I have both an XD-S and a Shield, and those are about as thin as I would go. The .45ACP XD-S is one of my favorite carry pistols, and I'm eagerly awaiting the announcement/release of the 9x19 model.

    The Shield is OK, but I really don't know if I'll be holding onto mine too much longer. It's about the same size as the XD-S.

    I'd recommend that you test fire both of them--the .45ACP in that little frame with the aggressive grip texturing is something to experience first-hand. The trigger is very Glock-like, and overall I'd give it an edge over the Shield. In comparison, the Shield is a very nice shooter, and makes for an excellent carry pistol.

    If Glock would ever produce a single-stack G26, I would definitely add one to the collection. However, that has never been mentioned by Glock. SA has mentioned that the XD-S will be released at some time in 9X19 and .40S&W.

    I have the CW9, Nano, and PPS. May eventually buy a Shield. I think the market has the single stack covered very well... But I would buy a 26s

    Neither.That is if they ever do come out with either one.:rofl: I already own a very fine single stack Kahr PM9. I've EDC it for a couple of years now, and it has never failed to function in any way.
