With all the new handguns available in today’s market, many Americans still embrace Glock pistols as their favorite carry, range and competition choice. There is just something about Glock’s reputation for exceptional reliability that comforts people when choosing a handgun for self defense.
Poll after poll shows that more Americans choose the Glock 19 as their choice to carry compared any other pistol out there. The simplicity and ease of use that Glock offers are the reasons most people stated why they choose to carry a Glock 19.
Now we look at the Glock 26, which is a scaled-down version of the Glock 19. I have spoken with many law enforcement officers who said they personally carry the Glock 26 when they are off duty or use it as their backup pistol when they are on duty. The beautiful thing about the Glock 26 is that it can offer everything the Glock 19 can but in a smaller package. To top it off, it accepts larger capacity 9mm Glock magazines. So although the Glock 26 is smaller in size, one does not have to sacrifice firepower when carrying it.
For years, the firearm community impatiently waited for Glock to produce and single stack 9mm pistol. Finally, in March 2015, Glock released their first single stack 9mm pistol called the Glock 43, and the gun community embraced it. The Glock 43 shares most of the same features and qualities with the larger models, but in a smaller and lighter single stack 9mm model that carries six rounds in the magazine. Today, thousands of people call the G43 their primary carry or backup carry handgun.
The video below is a range review for the Glock 19, G26 and G43.
I explain why I love these models and also demonstrate the differences that each model offers.
