Im in a bit of a conundrum and can't decide on what to get. I owned a 43 when they first came out, initial impressions. Brass to the head and very snappy, accuarcy greatly reduced compared to my G19. It still felt heavy and just as large print in a kydex holster to my Glock 19. So I decided to get rid of it and keep the G19. Years later the G19 prints heavy during the summer which is 10 months of the year here, more like 12 of 12 this year. The G19 is heavy and I mostly end up leaving it at home. So I'm thinking of a compromise. Here I am looking back at the 43 and the 26. I have never owned a 26 but read great reviews. From most of the online reviews it seems like most experienced gun people go for the 43 over the 26. In the past years I have invested in a stiff gun belt and feel like the extra weight makes the G19 weight negligible possibly to the 26. Should I try the 26 or go back to the 43 or maybe try something new in 9mm?
