9mm Chopper ?

Hi mas, I hope you're on the mend and doing well. I seem to have a problem with grip length when I'm carrying concealed; seems to print too easily. Range of motion issues strong side shoulder ( I can draw strong side open carry, hunting or at the range, but very awkward ccw) , so depending on the weapon choice I go cross draw ,small of back or front pocket, and also have to deal with tee shirt & shorts weather most of the time,( Hawaiian shirts when I can).
I have a G19 that shoots well but, is cosmetically challenged due to a prior owner and I am considering cutting the grip to fit G26 mags for less print while carrying. Short grip with long sight plane sounds good to me, but I wondered what your opinion would be considering 5 less rds. vs. better concealment ? Thanks, David

Doing fine, thanks. I'm not uncomfortable carrying 10+1, and with the butt chopped to 26 length your G19 will still accept longer mags when needed. While the shorter butt probably won't helpo your range of movement issues, all other things being equal, it will certainly print less.
