    Seeing as how you already have a 26 to carry I suggest the 17 instead of the 19. I have them all and iffin I were you that is what I would buy next. That, or the 34. Enjoy. -Goodspeed:wavey:

    I like the 19 better than the 17 because it fits my hand better.

    Show Off!:tongueout: and btw, you're missing one model 17, i think, aren't ya?:tease:

    i have a 26, 19 and a 17. i carry the 26, 90% of the time. the 19, 10%. if i were in your shoes, i'd first see which one, the 19 or 17, you like most. that is the one i'd get. if you like them both equally, i'd get a 17, or a 34.

    have fun, ked:wavey:

    I went for the 17/19/26 Trifecta eventually...
    17 is the home defense "system".
    19 was initially for the wife, but she just doesn't care so it's a back up and has a holster mount in my rig to sit comfortably from time to time.
    26 for the rare occasion that I feel the need to carry.
    (yes, I have a CPL)
    Nice thing about having all 9mm is that a good stash of G17 mags can fit all three...
    Good to have variety for different needs.

    I too wanted either the G17 or G19 and after months of deciding I chose the G19 because:

    1. Shorter barrell length for concealment

    2. G19 considered a compact model where G17 considered standard model (standard is a bigger weapon overall-see specs on website)

    3. G19 lighter weight with and without ammo

    The only negitive I found about the G19 is it holds 2 less rounds than the G17...but with the extra rounds it also makes the hand grip slightly larger and for me I don't have huge hands.

    Good Luck:wavey:

    I like the 19/23/32 size better than the 17/22/31 size just from in the hand feel and balance. If I were going bigger than the 19 I'd skip right to the 34.

    I have all but the 17L and carry the 26 all the time. If you carry IWB I would tell you to get a 34 because its no harder to hide than the 17. The 34 is so balanced and accurate its easy to shoot well.

    I have a 17 and a 26 and a 19, on order. I forgot I have to get a 34, too!

    I would tend to agree about concealability. I think I could probably secret my 17, just about as easy as I could my 26, IWB in my Crossbreed. The width is the same and that's the big factor, for me. That said, I've really been wanting to shoot a Walther PPS just to check it out ;)

    I have a 17 & 19, I carry the 19 all the time, not enough size difference in the 19 & 26 for me. The 26 just doesn't fit my hand. So I would suggest the 17..??? My $0.02

    I have the 26, and a 19 with an Advantage arms conversion. The 17 is on the list, but I think a G30, and an HK will probably come before the 17.

    I prefer the 19 over the 17 as it feels more balanced in my hand. YMMV, but you can't go wrong either way.

    I started with the 26 as my conceal carry gun. (Still do.) When I was looking for another 9mm, it was between the 17 & 19. I almost had to toss a coin when I was at the counter purchasing the gun.

    The 17 seems a better fit in my hand so I went with that one. As mentioned above, go with the one feels better in your hand.

    I started with the 19 then added a 26.

    Then I sold the 26 and bought three more 19's.

    The 17 isn't a size I want.

    I have at least one of every Glock 9mm made (except the G18 and I'm still looking :whistling:) and I have had several different generations, I have multiple Model 19's though as that is my Favorite gun period.

    For me each has some purpose. The 26 is my CC piece when I carry one way - my G19 sometimes when I carry another way, while the other 19's are around the house/shed/garage. The 34 is the nightstand gun with a TLR-1 on it and the 17and 17L are cool old first generations, and I'm bit of a old school fan so even though they are working guns I want them for sentimental reasons.

    If I had the 26 I would probably go with one of the longer guns (17 and 34) for me it would be the 34.

    But if you don't get a 19 - shame on you :supergrin:

    I have the 19 and like it a lot, but I needed something a little more concealable for daily carry. So I recently picked up a 26 and absolutely love it, it is so concealable. For a full size pistol, my next Glock will be a 21. I'm also thinking about getting a 23, which is the same size as the 19. So I guess my vote for your next 9mm would be the 19. It really is a good size and I enjoy carrying it a lot, even though lately my 26 has been seeing more carry time.
