    Problem ... I have Large Hands .... about 2/3 of my pinky finger hangs off the standard 10rd mag on my G30 without using the aftermarket finger ext. floorplates .. I do however shoot the G30 as well or better than my G21........I'm a Big Man with Big Hands ... but have Big Pockets on my Big Pants and would like one of the true Glock Sub compacts ... I tried a G27 but I could only get my middle finger on the grip with my ring finger at least half off the mag .
    .......It a shame to have these large pockets and have to carry an airweight 5 shot S&W ...I tried the G30 in front pocket carry ...it fit in my pocket .. but looked like I was smuggling building Blocks.

    Do ya'll think the G26 with less "Snappy" recoil would work .. or am I just stuck with the 5 shot 38

    run 135 gr +p 38 special speer gold dots through that j frame guy.
    i dont feel under armed with 5 in a snubbie.
    and i think you should consider getting a glock 19 IF the sub compact doesnt fit right for you.
    and if capacity matters, youll love the g19.
    ;f
    otherwise i say go with the 38.
    cant beat an airweight 38 for CC IMHO.

    Less recoil will probably help, but if a gun really doesn't fit your hand, I don't recommend it. The G19 sounds like a good idea.

    I agree. The G19 sounds like the piece your looking for.

    I just read my last reply ... and before someone has fun with me ...

    The " Clip " was removed from the holster ... The Magazine was in the G 30 .....

    ;P

    the 135gr +p 38 special is by speer.
    its the best for a snub nose revolver.
    it will expand better than anything else coming from a shorter barrel.
    plus the powder is formulated to burn super fast

    If you try shooting the 26 I'll bet you find you can control it with the grip you describe. It is very common for people to handle the 26 and assume they need the 19 length mags or the grip extensions until they actually shoot the 26.

    G26 with pinky ext. or G19 is it.
