Thinking of purchasing another Glock in the near future to keep my 19 Company can't decide between 26 or 30 choosing a subcompact for obvious reason CCW. The 26 would be nice because they could share ammo. However, the 30 would be good because of variety. just can't decide!! Halp!

The solution is very simple. Get them both!

I'm looking at a G30s for this summer after everyone finds out there will be no bans and the dust settles.

I can help you gather more info about the Glock 30 features and options. Check the link in my signature line below for everything you ever wanted to know about the G30, but were afraid to ask. Regarding the choice between the G26 and G30, good luck to you.

That's a tough one. Personally, I have a G30 and love it. But .45 ammo is more expensive than 9mm.

The 26 would let let you shoot the same ammo as your 19. Bottom line: they're both great guns. Tough choice.

I suggest you make a decision and stop asking random people how to spend your money. Asking for personal experiences with a product is valid with a grain of salt but asking "WHAT SHOULD IT DO WITH MY MONEY?" Results in useless answers that are not applicable to your situation.

Since you already have a 19, which is probably one of the finest carry weapons in the universe, you should go the other direction and look into a G34. Same caliber but now you have the option of using the 17-round mags for the 34 in your 19. I've recently picked up a Gen 4 G34 and it has rocketed right up to the top of the list of my favorite guns.

No decision is necessary if you buy all Glock models.
Collect the entire set, just as you would for anything else.

That's what I'm trying to do.

Tough choice, IMO.
The 26 is considerably easier to conceal, but there is something to be said about 10+1 rds of 45 ACP in hand.
I know-get both!! :supergrin:

I did the same thing, in 08 starting threads and asking questions about what Glock to get. I did the same thing in 09 when wanting a sub. it worked out very well for me cause I have two Glocks that I couldn't be happier with and I would never sell either one. most of the info from people that had older join dates and many posts were spot on but don't dismiss others.
I did the same things with holsters and everyone I have works for me. I had a couple that I had sold that didn't but I don't have a holster box full of unusable holsters.
So keep asking and stay focused on what you are going to use it for.

Glock 26, you can share mags and ammo.

For practicality I'd get the 26 (share ammo and mags). After things cool down and you still want another pistol then you can go after the 30.

I have a 26, 19 and 30 and of all of them the 26 is my best shooter.

Glock 26. More than a few report shooting it better than the bigger Glock 9mm versions.

At this time Glocks are short on supply and long on demand. If you find either I'd buy it.

I would go with the G30. Now that ammo is hard to find its good to have two different. If you can't find one, you might be able to find the other.

G26 is more practical, and aint that what Glock is all about?

I bought a G30 when they first came out. I call it "Old Ugly" with great affection. It is roughy the same size as the G19 but thicker. In the whole time I have had it the gun has never not fired. It is my "rough use" gun. When I go hiking, biking, or camping it's at my side.
Unike some of my more exotic and expensive .45's if it gets dropped in mud, water, or banged on a tree I just pick it up, clean it off, and it's good to go. It can handle +P ammo with no problem. Although except in bear country I usually just use standard pressure .230r. HST or Ranger.
And it lives up to it's reputation of being one of the most accurate Glocks made. I regulary outshoot guns costing four times my gun. When I let others shoot it when they shoot one raged whole they are amazed. They think I just must of ot a ood one. I tel them no. Most everyone I've seen shoots like that.
10+1 rounds of .45 backed up by a G21 mag with 13 rounds of .45 is a lot of portable firepower. Yes I have one of the originals and the rip is thick. I thought of an SF or a rip reduction. It is at the mit of what i can maintain a good one handed firing grip. But when I foret about the feel and just shoot the gun I have zero problems shootin it well. And in the cooler weather it is especially easy to carry concealed. The rip is short and hides well.
I had CCR put their Nickel-Boron finish on it awhile ago. So I had my own "TALO" before TALO's. It actually looks pretty good. A good G19 and a G30 are absoutely Glocks best work for medium sized, do it all, ccw guns. And the riflng in the G30 does keep velocities up.
I chronographed some Winchester 239gr. Ranger +p's through both a 5" 1911 and my G30. The 1911 averaged close to 980 f.p.s. out of the 1911. It averaged 940 not a bad loss at all. I'd say get the G30.
