My first firearm was a G26 and I still love it. So do a lot of GT'ers. It's a great blend of size, shootability and capacity in a 9mm. Since that initial purchase, I've gone up and I've gone down in the carry collection. Up when I could off body or OWB carry a G20 (10mm) or Shield 45 and down when I could only pocket or deep concealed IWB carry 22 WMR, single stack 380 and 9mms (NAA Mini, G42, PM9, Kimber Micro, G43, Shield9). I'm asking the GT brain trust to double check my thoughts (knowing the answer is "buy more guns"). If the G26 (9mm) is a great choice for self defense, why isn't the G33 (357 sig) better? G33 is the same form factor as the G26 with 9+1 instead of 10+1 The 357 Sig with Underwood loaded Gold Dots is 1475 fps / 604 ME vs the hottest loaded 9mm +P+ Underwood Gold Dots 1300 fps / 465 ME. In my head it's kind of like an easier to carry G29-lite, but better than a 9mm. Question for those in the know: Can I use the G20 (10mm) magazines as an extended magazine for a G33 when using 357 Sig? Of course in posting this, I couldn't resist and ordered some 357 sig ammo and a G33.... And a chronograph... And planning my next gel and barrier testing at the range.... It doesn't end, does it?
