1. Excellent reliability
2. Very good accuracy (I shoot my 26 BETTER than the larger G19 and G17)
3. Very soft recoil (follow up shots are quick)
5. Great power to size ratio (9mm chambering in a .380 ACP sized gun)!
14. Because you're an American and you can. Someday the Democrats will be in control of the White House, the Congress, and the Supreme Court simultaneously and ban the purchase of small guns because they're too easy to hide and large guns because they're too scary. Get 'em while they're hot.
