Glock 26/19 Question

I find myself in the market for my first gun. I intend on using the weapon for the CCW class and obviously to carry. I am wondering if anyone carries these and can give some info. I know they are basically the same gun only the 26 is a bit smaller (sub-compact vs compact). Does anyone find carrying the 19 to be too big?

Also how easy/hard might it be to find either of these Glock models used??

I have both Glock 19 and 22. They are both too big to carry in my opinion....so with that said I bought Kahr PM9.

I have a G23 and G27 in .40S&W, the G27 conceals much better.

In my parts Glocks in 9mm are scarce, because of the current political status.

I have a Glock 26. Conceals well. Depends on your method of carry. I have tried ankle carry, because sometimes that is my only option. I have had limited success with ankle carry. IWB is great for my needs.

I don't think you'll have a problem with the 26 size, just please watch that trigger discipline.
