    Any good quality 9mm Parabellum (9X19) ammo should run fine in your Glock 26. They don't seem to have any problem with +P or +P+, though of course, those hotter loads will have snappier recoil.
    best,

    It's OK, but not optimum. IMHO, 9mm is a caliber that definitely benefits from premium ammo for maximum performance.
