At this time, I am staying away from the 19. It offers me very little over my 17. Its less then 1/2" difference in height and length. For dropping the barrel length and the rounds, to me, the trade off just isn't there. I do not dislike the G19 but for my CC protection, I want one easier to keep covered and more importantly, draw without discomfort. As for the .45 models, I am sold. This would not be the time for them. You all pose some very nice information about what you prefer and your experience with them. The G26 is most assuredly on the list along with the G43. They are both comparable in size. 1 having a longer barrel (and a bit wider)and the other having a larger grip but only 6 round capacity standard. I am not too awful keen on dropping down to 6 rounds for my personal protection though. The 26 will probably be the one I purchase. I'll go out and see what's available. I may pick it up before Christmas.
