I carry a Glock 19, but I kinda miss the 26 that I used to carry. It was bulky but short. I could shoot it fine too. The 19 has more rounds of course, but it's heavier because of that. I've messed with the Shields and the XDs. Thinking about grabbing the XDs at some point. The shield feels too weird in my hand. Like the palm is too pointy or something. XDs feels really nice to me.
