I posed this question a couple of weeks ago, as my first posting on GlockTalk. I initially posted in General Glocking, but someone there suggested I try here instead. So here goes: My wife bought a Glock 17 about a month ago, but now we're both thinking its too large for her to conceal effectively (she's not very big and doesn't want to purse carry). She opted for the 17 after I told her of my unsatisfactory experience with a G19 about 6 years ago (squirrely recoil for some unknown reason). My wife likes shooting the G17, but would like to have a smaller pistol with comparable shooting characteristics - either the G19 or the G26. It seems to me the G26's two-finger grip, short barrel and short sight radius would make it uncomfortable for most women to shoot... What say you, ladies? Do you carry and shoot G19s or G26s? I very much appreciate your comments and advice. PS.I watched the Mel Gibson movie "What Women Want" with my wife because she promised me it dealt with CCW issues. I got gyped!
