    I know everyone is different, but do you prefer the 19 or the 26 to carry in a crossbread style holster. I carry the 26 now but considering trading it for a 19. I like the feel of the 19 better I am just not sure it will conceal as easily. I have already contacted crossbread that they say my 26 holster will work for the 19 but look to hear other people opinions.

    I have a 27 and 23.

    I carry the 27 more often. The grip is what prints. Carrying more ammo in a 23 weighs the pants down, even with a gun belt.

    If you want capacity, get some G19 mags, and save your money.

    26 conceals better for me IWB and MIC holster. 19 feels better because it's bigger. Used carry 19 before I got the 26. I also carry the Kahr CM9 along with my 26.

    Love my G19. I carry in a Foxx IWB holster tucked in and have no problem with printing, etc. I am 6'-2" and about 215# and it conceals nicely.

    I looked hard at the 26 but liked the higher capacity mag and the feel in my hand of the G19…just my $.02

    I've done both, and I love carrying my 26. If the 19 feels better to you, and you can conceal just as easily, get the 19. I'm a believer in what works for me, might not work for you.

    I carry a 19 in a crossbreed style holster. I have no problems concealing the 19 this way with either a button-up or a t-shirt.
     
  8. I carry a 17 sometimes, no problem. If I were in a position to only choose either the 19 or 26 I would probably go with the 19.

    I daily carry the Glock mid size pistol in a Comp-tac Two O'clock holster. If you can carry and hide a sub compact you can easily carry the mid size 19, 23. 32. Not that much difference in size and I much prefer the grip and capacity of the mid size. Bill
