As stated already, welcome!

If you haven't shot a .40 before I would suggest going with the 9mm, especially in such a small package. Typically shooters find it quicker to get back on target and the recoil more manageable/less "snappy". That being said I've only ever owned .40 Glocks, a G22, G23, and G27. Were I to buy another sub-compact I'd most likely go with the 9mm.

Welcome aboard.

I went with the G26 because I shoot the 9 mm better, with quicker recovery. They all have their fans, but you need to go with what you shoot best.

Keep in mind that no handgun round is going to be a reliable one-shot stop. The second and third rounds are often the ones that make the difference, so getting them off quickly and accurately can be vitally important.

Welcome.

Think the old saying "good, fast, cheap; pick two". Also TANSTAAFL.

Best power would be the 29, also the biggest gun and most recoil.

G26 has the least recoil but the least power on target per shot.

G27 is a compromise between the power and recoil of the 10mm G29 and the 9mm G26. The gun is the same size as the 26 but throws fewer, larger and heavier bullets and will recoil more.

Note, none of the above are considered easy to shoot. Not hateful for most people but not beginners guns either.

Rent and try before buying. You may be better served with a G19 or 23 which are a little easier to shoot for most people being a compromise design between concealment and shootability.

You didn't state your overall experience with firearms, but a G26 is a great gun to start with. That isn't to say it isn't appropriate for very experienced shooters (it IS), it is just that bad habits like flinching may be more likely to happen if you go too big, too fast.

With the G26, you have a great little gun that can serve a lot of purposes. I would start there.

Welcome, and we hope you hang around and have fun learning and sharing!

My personal preference would be G26, G29, G27. I don't like the snappiness of the .40 and would gladly go with the 26 or the 29. I have not tried a Glock 29 with .40 power level 10mm, so someone can weigh in on if that adds snappiness back to it. I do prefer grip extensions to get the pinky finger on it.

G26. It is made for concealment.
But, as RonS said, the G19 is a great gun to start with.

I own a 26 and a 19. It would be hard to go wrong with either for a concealable, all around firearm.

Rent all if possible and see for yourself. I went the G19 route for CCW. I also have a G26 but only CCW that 2 or 3 times a year.

BTW, welcome.

Forget Glock. Get both a Sig and a Ruger Well, if you simply must have a Glock, I vote the 19. It's simply an all around great self-defense, concealed carry package. If you're new to handguns, the 9mm is less snappy and ammo is usually more plentiful and less expensive than .40 cal. Whatever you choose, you should expect to spend a lot of hours of range time becoming proficient with the firearm.

This. And for the first, get the G26. It is concealable, while a bit fat, but for its size is as accurate as any small handgun made, ounce for ounce and inch for inch. For a first carry weapon is the way to go. If you have any qualms about carrying a handgun without a designated manual safety, carry it on an empty chamber and just slingshot the slide when drawing. As you become more comfortable and confident with it you can transition through training to carrying one in the chamber.

I let the lack of a manual safety put me off Glocks for a long time. They can be just as safe as any weapon out there IF that is how you condition yourself.

I started with a 30sf then a 29 now I also use a 31. With the right holsters they all carry great!

For what you have stated the use will be I would suggest a G19 gen4. But try the different models you are interested in before buying.

A head shot at a max distance of 10 yards(11ft the norm) dictates your needs, all that you pointed out fit the bill. Least recoil, the 26. The 26 and 27 will conceal in your pocket and deeper if need be. I can also carry the 29/30 platform in my pocket or deeper due to my size. Good Luck.

I have a g29 and with full power loads she is guide a handful if you are not a real experienced shooter. I would recommend the g26 for the best combo of shoot ability conceal ability and ability to get back on target quickly!
