    It's just so ideal for carry, capacity, & shootability! I do indeed carry my G27 quite a bit during these last DOG DAYS of Summer...But my 2 Glock Gen4 26's get a lot of carry time as well. Sometimes with GAP Plates, +2 Glock OEM plates, or with Pearce +0's... It's just a weight and size efficient envelope!!

    It's hard to best 12+1 with +2 Glock OEM baseplates that still keep the gun MORE CONCEALABLE than either of my G19's!

    Let's hear it for a Modern Marvel of Engineering...

    The Glock 26!:wavey:

    Most of the time, I agree, but IWB a Walther PPS is more comfortable. But you are right, at the sacrifice having more rounds.

    I definitely prefer the 9mm over the 40, I'll say that much anyway.

    just bought a Gen 4 G27. It is big as hell. I will open carry in TN, however...

    G26/G27 are not pocket guns to me...

    I used to feel the same way about carrying my G26/27 until I bought a Kahr PM9 and PM40. Much easier, more comfortable to carry, and much slimmer.

    With the +2 floorplate, it's about the size of a G19. Doesn't make sense to buy a subcompact pistol and make the grip longer by adding +2's, might as well just carry a G19.

    You really can't beat a Glock 26/27 for every day carry.

    I have found my way back to Glock subcompact pistols for carry.....after screwing around with many other designs!

    Those who are comparing the G26/27 to a Kahr or similar single stack design......NOT the same type of pistol.
    Yes, you might be more "comfortable" carrying a thinner pistol, but let us go to a range and draw and fire from concealment to target......with a reload thrown in!

    The G26/27 platform works so well because it "fights" like a full size gun, but the stubby grip frame makes it disappear under a simple tee shirt.

    G26/27 RULE for CCW!

    Good summation. Agree, shoots like a much bigger gun.
    Would I like a slimmer slide? Yeah I would. That would really make Perfection.

    M&P 9C

    The specs are extremely close and you get 12 rounds instead of 10. It comes with different backstraps that you can change if necessary depending on your hand size. The M&P also comes 2 mags; 1 flat base and 1 w/pinky extension. Like the G26, you can use the full size M&P mags as well, to give you a 17rd capacity.

    G26
    Length 6.29
    Width 1.18
    Height 4.17
    Capacity 10+1

    M&P 9C
    Length 6.7
    Width 1.18
    Height 4.3
    Capacity 12+1

    The G26 is one of the best from Glock.

    I'm in total agreement with 2740DMX and a few others ... this is far and away the best weapon for me as a CC gun. In a world of compromise, the one thing I WON'T compromise is reliability and the G26s that I have owned through the years have NEVER missed a beat with any kind of ammunition under any conditions (including sub zero temps and desert heat).

    After nearly 10 years of experimenting with lots of Glocks, I finally settled on a Gen 4 Model 26 as my only gun ... no ARs, no shotguns, no revolvers ... just a tried and true G26. It's the most accurate Glock for me and I can carry it concealed so many ways that smaller, less reliable guns are unnecessary: Galco Second Amendment 95% of the time with a +2 Glock base plate or a GAP plate, either untucked or tucked shirt; Smart Carry with a reload with tucked shirt for more formal occasions the other 5%.

    It's a great tool for defense of one's self and one's family and friends in an uncertain world, that's for sure.

    I second that emotion. Sums it up.
    Reliability first and foremost. Not even a close second.
