    Hi Everyone,
    I currently have a G19, G42 and G43
    The G43 is my EDC
    Do you think it is worth getting the G26 or am I just getting Compulsive ?
    Yes it holds 4 more but is also a bit larger.
    Not like I'm flushed with Cash but wondering what the experts think who have much more experience than myself ?
    As always THANK YOU GT Friends.

    No needs for it, infact the 19 and 43 are a perfect combination.
    Take a look to the Sig P365 instead!

    I’d pass on the 26 and look hard at the 43X.

    I would and did. There are plenty of us with these trio of Glock 9mm.

    I recently sold my awesome Gen5 G26 in favor of a Gen4 G17. So glad that I did. I already had the G43 so I felt like I had something closer to two of a kind, despite one being more fat.

    Part of the reason I carry pistols instead of revolvers is increased shot capacity. If you’re gonna carry 6, why not increase reliability & get a revolver?

    That was honestly my thinking as well. Did not want to duplicate efforts.
    Maybe as Tango said I would check out the Sig 365

    Good Point TTD !!
    The only reason is that I carry an extra mag with 6 in it and for my "non seasoned hands" LOL it's very easy to re-load.

    As always, the 26 has the capability to accept the higher capacity magazines from its' big brothers. Also, with a couple of changes such as barrel, magazine, etc. you could shoot multiple calibers from a G26. Additionally, you would retain the legendary Glock reliability. Plus, every Glock owner should own a 26. But now, you must do what is right for you and only you.

    I like the G26 and shoot it well. But to be perfectly honest, my G26 has taken a back seat to the G43. To me, the 43 is a bit more versatile and easier to conceal, but I still shoot the 26 a bit better.

    How well do you shoot the G43? I shoot the G26 so much better then the G43, ended up selling the later. If you can, get to a range and rent a G26.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. IMO, the G26 is that perfect balance and combination of capacity, shootability and concealment.
