Hi all, I'm a new member on the forum. Among other types of firearms, I bought a G19 g4 a few months ago (when they finally came back in stock in my area), and absolutely love it. I should receive my ccw permit sometime this year, and need some opinions about other Glocks. First, I'm a bigger guy, and I have huge hands (6'3" 230, and I have 9 3/4" hands). The G19 is pretty much the lower limit for size I feel really comfortable shooting, compared to other small frame handguns that are not Glocks. I haven't fired a G26 yet, and am wondering if I should invest time finding out if the G26 would be a good option as a carry weapon? I would definitely carry the G19, as I have plenty of real-estate available to conceal it. But maybe there's a situation I would need something smaller (ankle holster or something). The other aspect I'm trying to consider is: my truck gun. I have an effective locking solution in my vehicle to secure a firearm that I would need to leave in my vehicle (IL has a ton of BS locations that aren't firearm friendly, and having a safe, effective, storage means in your vehicle is basically a must). The reason I want another firearm option to be with me, is that in a bad situation (forbid) it's a lot easier/faster for me to grab a weapon from a lower dash holster, than it is for me to draw from concealment. Also, in the event that there's a major malfunction, I have a backup. Also (again), why settle for one, when I can have two.. (one on me, and another very near me)? So all that lead's me into my question for you... What should my next Glock be? I'm pretty sure I'm going to stay 9mm, as it's very affordable to train with, and it give's me the ability to buy the same ammo for my working guns that are going to go, pretty much everywhere with me. I see advantages for all 3 9mm Glocks I'm interested in. 17 is full size, best grip for my hand, can stay in the truck (don't need to worry about concealing it on my body) plus can backup my nightstand firearm. Another G19, as I know I love it, it's a true multi-role handgun, can be a vehicle gun, nightstand, concealed, ect. Or the G26 - it's small size can easily be concealed on my person, but probably wont serve much more than a deep concealment weapon when needed, because of it'small grip, lower capacity and my huge hands. I think it's a little bit more between the 17 and another 19. Both have ideal capacity (without a large magazine extension). The 19 give's me familiarity and versatility, the 17 gives me a grip that a little bit more ideal for my hand size, and a little less versatility. I'm not going to split hairs over bullet performance out of the different barrel lengths, as I'm fairly sure nobody would want to be shot with a 9mm coming out of a 3" the same as a 4.5+" barrel. Now, talking about the 17 leads me down the rabbit hole... I could disregard ammo/mag sharing, and look at the G21. It still falls a little into ammo sharing, as I own two full size 1911's (yep, I'm a rare breed that loves 1911's and Glocks equally) so I buy .45acp ammo already as well. Side note: the 1911's can be carried - most effectively in a shoulder rig, but I reserve their use for the range, and my night stands. The G21 could basically serve the same purposes the G17 could, just in a larger caliber (so it typically hits a little harder, but holds less ammo - accuracy becomes more important). I can't decide for the life of me (maybe a bad choice of words...). I wish I could pick up a few different models, but my budget is restricted to picking out one. So please, post away, and share your thoughts about my (good) dilemma, and what you would do/have done in similar situations.. Or maybe I'm crazy, and need you all to tell me!
