Gen 3 Glock 26

The Glock 26 is one of the most popular carry guns for good reason.   I've been carrying the Gen3 G26 for a long time and here's what I've found.

Pros: 
-Reliable.  The gun has had 0 malfunctions
-Accurate.  For s subcompact gun it's relatively easy to shoot well. 
-Durable   
-Easy to maintain 
-TONS of aftermarket support.
-Accepts 15, 17, and 33 round factory magazines 
-Glock's customer service is excellent
-Cheap replacement parts, should you ever need them 
-Low Bore Axis resulting in a soft shooting gun, especially for the weight.
-Easily modified to fit the shooters' preferences
-Requires very little cleaning/lubrication to run reliably 
-Carries well but you still have a 10+1 capacity.



Cons: 
-Most shooters will not be able to get amore than 3 fingers on the grip.
-Comes with a serrated trigger (even the US models)

Here's a video with some shooting, a size comparison with the CM9 & S&W Shield, and a discussion of the pros and cons of the gun.
