I have read, and read, and read on both firearms. I have studied and have looked at schematics for both. I have held both, Held a 26 when I owned one (11 years ago or so)but really didn't like that I ahd no place to put my little finger and this was before I knew about a curved mag extention that allowed a rest for the little finger. I don't think that would bother me now. Please help me with a decision, especially if you have had alot of experience with these smallish 9s or 40s Pros Glock 26 seems to take less oommph to rack the slide very very reliable without break in almost... very customizable trigger with parts change out and end user able to do it. shorter trigger pull Higher cap. and can take G19 mags and you can put a grip extention on it and make a great range gun. (EDIT) ADVANTAGE ARMS has a little .22 caliber conversion kit! Don't know anything about them though(EDIT) Cons G26 clumpier trigger pull out of the box THICKER (one of my main gripes) Pros Kahr THINNER prettier (but that won't save your life) better factory slide release ?more accurate, not that 1/2" accuracy matters much at 7yards or inward sweet smooth trigger pull and break CONS Kahr more expensive (pistol+ 200 rounds break in ammo = price of gun to me a bit heavier if steel model which I think is what I would want. PM or M series lacks place for little finger, and also lacks a way to extend the grip any... Could buy a standard size but then would not have a gun that is AS easy to carry. longish trigger pull smaller capacity This really should be easier than this I would think. The only guns that I have access to fire at are local indoor range are a Glock 19 which I aboslutley LOVE that gun but I chose to sell mine so that I could get a Franchi Alcione O/U shotgun for hunting. kimber commander sized gun. (forgot the exact model. and a MK9 steelframe with hard nylon grips. To rent ONE of these guns would cost me $15 to rent the gun,$15 range fee, $9 thier ammo, = alot of money to me. Don't get me wrong, I am willing to do that but I sure wish they had a 26 for me to try also... Guys, I am TRUSTING that you have the expierence to help me and give me objective reasons on why you would choose one over the other. I do realize that a carry arm is a highly subjective and personal decision, but I simply do not have the funds to go out and purchase both to try even though I would really want to. (one of my major newbie mistakes was to trade my G26 for a G19C) I should have just gotten a G19 or kept the 26. And to boot I got taken for about $100 on the deal too. That was 9 years ago and I like to think that I am abit smarter now since I am about 1/2 finished with my life (34 yo) considering the national average and the propensity towards heart disease in my family. I love my wife and my children and want to be able to watch after them the best possible. Sincerely Bushman and thanks for the help.
