    I just purchased a Glock 26 for concealed carry, and I'm completely satisfied with the little pistol. With 11 rounds of 9mm on board, I feel I can handle just about anything that comes my way.

    I've been carrying a Glock 17 around for about a month, and the second I slipped the G26 in my waistband holster, there was immediate relief. The grip on the Glock 17 is very long in order to accommodate so many rounds, and it's not practical for me to carry everywhere every day.

    I went mountain biking for over two hours yesterday with the little G26 in my waistband, and I could hardly tell it was there.

    I've made a video of the little gun compared to the G17:

    I have a G27 that gets carried almost every single time I leave the house. Glad to hear it's such a good fit.

    Me too! I love my little G26.

    I was talking to the wife the other day and we agreed that the G26 right now is kinda my main gun. Everything else sees little to no range time.

    My G27 (same size as G26) is my go-to pistol that goes everywhere with me. I have a co-workers who runs with a G26 and she says she can't hardly tell it's there.

    One of the best pistols in the world IMO, I carry mine everywhere.

    Rides perfectly in an Uncle Mikes IWB rig.

    I'm getting rid of my PF9 (It's just no fun to shoot:() for a Taurus 709, if I can not get that to work for me ill pick up a 26, I just wish they were a tad slimmer.

    try these on your mags in place of the stock base plates.

    you'll like it even more. they don't add any length to the butt and make a big difference- at least on my 'fistfull of fury' Glock 33

    Thanks breacher! I've taken a look at those and they look very functional and useful. They're pretty inexpensive too.

    G27 goes wherever I do in a Desantis nemesis pocket holster; full sized g22 mag in the off pocket topped off. Helps balance the load & keep the pants from tracking diagonal. Awesome design, works, and ugly as a mud fence. You know, Glock.

    The Glock 26 is the one Glock everyone should own. Such a small package with controllable recoil and 9mm firepower.

    Love my G27, but I shoot the 9mm a little better than the .40. A G26 is on my short list.

    I love mine. It sees most of its time as my on duty back up gun. Accurate and enjoyable to shoot.

    As I have posted before, check out the factory 12 round mag for the G26. It comes with the +2 thingy on the bottom. Several family members bought these and remarked how it really makes a great pistol better. For some reason, these G26 pistols tend to be the most accurate Glocks .

    Same reason that I bought my 19. Well that and I feel better about working in the yard or getting hit with water (sometimes salt) when I'm wearing the glock, I don't have to detail strip it as often.

    They say it is so accrurate because of the short barrel lockup is tigher and the gun has to recoil back a bit farther before it unlocks from the slide.

    All I know is mine allow me to do consistant 25 yard head shots, standing, firing two handed, on IDPA targets.

    And that's not bad at all in my book!

    Best all around gun I have had period, and I have had a lot of guns. When I was younger it was the 30, but it's just a little bulky now at 62. The 26 is perfect. I used to carry a commander for years, but things change, and we didn't have the choices way back when that we have today. It was either a revolver or a ppk's till the late 80's early 90's. You can't beat a 20 oz pistol with 10+1 rounds and a 15 or 17 round reload mag.Even the M&P, compact or the sr9c, make life a little bit easier.

    These are my small carry pieces. The G26 is my favorite.

    Just get a 9mm conversion barrel from Storm Lake or Lone Wolf. I bought one a while back and it works 100% using the standard Glock 9mm mags. I like it because the barrel is thicker when you set it up this way (because it has to fill the bigger 40s&w hole in the slide). Thicker barrel doesn't heat up as fast & is stronger. Plus you can shoot un-jacketed bullets if you want because it is a stainless barrel with standard grooves. Just a thought...

    I'm torn between the 26 and the Ruger SR9c. Well at least I was torn and I was actually going to go with the little Ruger until one of my employee's said he wants to sell his 26 for $350 and he bought it brand new less than a year ago and has maybe 300 rounds through it so I think that's what I'm going to go with. Great little guns and I actually shoot a little better with the 19 but I'm hoping with that finger extension I'll be able to shoot the 26 just as good.

    Buy it! Then re-sell it if you don't like it. You should have no trouble getting 400-450 out of it.
