Thinking about getting a new sub compact 9mm. Have it narrowed down to the shield or glock 26. Any insight would be appreciated!

Well this is an easy one........

Would you prefer double stack or single stack?

In before the "shield isn't a single stack":D I just recently picked up a shield and I am happy with it over all. I don't have very much experience with it though. I have always debated a g26 and will probably have one eventually. However I have been debating chopping one of my gen 2 g19s to a g26 grip length. I would probably let price decide for me on which ever one I could get a better deal on.

Glock. Easy to conceal and can't beat a 17rd backup. And parts are super cheap an array of aftermarket sights.

Depends on how discreet you need to be I guess. The 26 conceals plenty easy IMO and I would much rather have the added capacity.

It just depends on which one shoots easier (and better) to you.
I have both and both shoot equally well (for me), but the Shield is my carry pistol.
I do like being able to use my G19 and G17 mags in the G26 when the urge hits me. :)

Shoot them and buy the one you shoot best, if you can find them to rent or borrow.

The Shield is a better BUG than a main carry gun IMO.

Which gun would you rather have if you got into a gun fight?

That question is why my EDC is a G19.

I own both and like both, but prefer the G26 to the Shield. YMMV.


Side by side.

I really need to find an old g26 and send it to cold bore customs.

I love my 26 probably almost my favorite carry gun. Even converted one of my 27's into a 26.

Wow! I had to do a double take on that one. Here's a pic of mine.
Could be triplets, well, mine has a Talon grip. I appreciate the GAP floor plate recommendation, Joe.
