    Im looking at a Glock 19 or 26 4th gen. Since I can shoot about any caliber without a problem, but I want a gun the wife can handle with her little hands, She picked up tha 19 with out a problem but the 26 is cool to me since it's smaller. And the 19 clips fit in the 26 anyways. Only other gun she felt comfortable handling was a Taurus 9mm slim. It's way cheeper than the Glocks. Any opinions?

    At least look at the S&W M&P 4.5".

    It has an three-size adjustable grip and ambidextrous mag release. Also a light rail.

    You may like the glock better, but at least you did some comparison shopping...

    love my beretta 92f 9mm. if it's only for your wife i wouldn't say getting her a cheaper gun is like buying her a knock off purse so ;) you can get see where im going with this.. "save money when you can"

    Ya teh salesman was only really doing his job trying to push the Glocks, I like them but I have read good reviews on the Taurus thats why I wanted to look at them and see if she could feel if it was a comfortable gun to her. I looked at a S&W too, but I would rather have a Glock just preferance. Any other Glock or Taurus owners?

    I carry a Glock 26 in the warmer months, and it has been pretty great. Recoil is pretty light, and it has been super reliable. Accuracy is very good as well. I would personally would steer you away from Taurus, and towards the Glock, especially if this is a gun you (or wife) might call on to defend a life.

    I'll second the M&P. The pick-your-size backstraps make for a nice grip when you find the size that's most comfortable.

    The biggest gun you can bring to the fight and shoot well is the one to get.
    BTW, its a magazine/mag, clips are for SKS'. They clip onto the rear of the cartridge's case :)

    Thanks for bringing that up, I wanted to, but didn't want to come across as a ass. It just chaps me when folks say "how many does the clip hold".

    I don't mean to come across as an ass either. There are people out there who will judge you on the nomenclature you use. Fore warned is fore armed. Educate yourself;)

    a Glock feels awkward in my hands...i have 2 M&P's. i bought two full size mags for a M&P9 to put in my compact and some XGrip adapters....now i have a compact with the option of having a full size with 18 rounds of the compact size grip for conceal ability with 13rounds :)

    Just make sure you practice with what you carry, how you carry it.

    I love my Khar CW9 as my daily carry piece and the G19 is just a great gun. I've put 1000s of round through it and it shoots really nicely.

    True dat... I carry a full-size Kimber .45 or a H&K USP in cooler/jacket weather, but it's time now to pocket the little KelTec .380 or Ruger LCP. I know not the best, but super easy to carry. I want to handle a Ruger LC9.

    We like our glock 17. Between the wife and myself we have put a little over 15000 rounds in it with out any issues. I'm looking to get a 26 here in a few months. I had a Taurus 9mm before my Glock but it had issues jamming. We got rid of it for the Glock, best move we made.

    here's a web page pic but mines for a G26. i got the horse hide because i live in a humid climate. most comfortable holster ever. wore for 8 hours today and loved it. it's taken about 3 weeks so far to break it in though.
