I tossed some Meprolite Tritium's on mine and it makes a huge difference... in darkness and in daylight. The accuracy of this little gun is dead on at 20 meters. It was a great upgrade from the stockers.

After about 2000 rounds, my Glock 26 shows very very little wear. It never jams on me, isn't picky on ammo, and is extremly accurate. The low profile sights certainly take longer to get good with than iron sights, but they're certainly a better choice when having to draw without catching. There are definately some good aftermarket sights out there for it.

I recently bought a Glock 26 with night sights. I have owned 3 others that are large frame. I was really happy to see how accurate it is for such a short pistol. A nice compliment to my other Glocks.

I am still looking for a comfortable home defense pistol for my wife. Would trhe Glock 26 work well for a female shooter with smaller and weaker hands? How would the Glock 26 compare to a S&W M&P Compact?

I'd like to know what experience your wife has with a handgun before giving a recommendation. Someone with little or no experience should think hard before choosing a semi auto as their first handgun, especially when it will be depended on for home defense. I believe a Glock to be as reliable a semi auto that has ever been built, but this may have much more recoil than its bigger brother, the Glock 19. If this pistol is going to be used for range practice and home defense and not concealed carry, it would be wiser to go with a larger model. Less recoil, easier to control than the subcompacts. Have you considered a revolver? There's a lot to offer in a good wheel gun!

Can I get some advice/opinions on what to do?

I am currently carrying a glock 36 in .45acp, and am seriously considering trading in for a model 26. My pros would be: could use as a pocket gun, can use mags and ammo from my glock 19 and kel tek rifle, more controlable recoil, my girlfriend could shoot it.

Cons would be: less punch, $$$$, impractical for anything but CPL and backup.

I think you should just buy it and keep the 36! If you look at the numbers the 36 is 1.5 oz. heavier, .32" longer barrel, .52" longer overall and for the sake of conversation, lets say it carries twice the ammunition. Every .45acp fan is going to tell you that hands down, .45acp, especially when it's compared with a 9mm. The only two items that stand out is the 1.5 oz heavier weight and the difference in total rounds with the 36. You've already got a Glock 19 in 9mm, so you've already got something for your girlfriend to shoot and the 19 is by itself pretty compact. I personally would tell you to keep the 36. If you want to drop caliber size a bit, I would suggest you consider the G23. The 40SW round is very impressive round and is considerably more powerful than a 9mm. With the 23 you can also change barrels and have the ability to add another 9mm or .357 SIG to your gun safe. Just my thoughts, hope they give you something to consider!!
