    Getting ready to head out this afternoon, I was caught in the usual dilema of what to carry. I love my Glock 17, but it is awful big for EDC. Especially running errands. So I usually end up with my Kel Tec PF9. I was thinking, wouldn't it be great of Glock made a single stack, safe action pistol in 9mm comperable to the size of my Kel Tec (or the Ruger, Kahr, Kimber, et al.)?

    What do you think?

    I think it would cost twice as much as your (and my) PF-9 and not be twice the gun. It would be kinda cool to see but at the same time I'm getting tired of the $500 pocket gun fad.

    It seems like a good idea. My Glock 19 even feels a little bulky if I'm going to be out with it all day. Oasis has a good point about price. Even at $400-$500, they would sell like hotcakes.

    Kahr PM9 or Kahr P380/Ruger LCP w/ buffalo bore ammo even better. I love Glocks, but I don't see Glock making anything much better than the Kahrs for that purpose.

    I could never haul around a 1911 or G19 all day, everyday. Even the G26/27 is too much of a brick. Just IMO.

    Theres something to be said about a gun company that ISNT branching out from what they do best. GLOCK makes excellant guns- they all look and feel the same (for the most part). You look at the spread of firearms Kel-Tec/Ruger/Kimber/etc. makes... it makes sense they have one to fit every occasion.
    ... but if GLOCK does make a single stack with a smaller frame and slide, I would probably buy it anyway :)

    Eh... the G28 has the same slide width as the G27 (according to the Glock website). I don't think it fits the mold of a compact slim single stack Glock.

    Glock 28 is 1.18" wide.
    Kel Tec PF9 is .88 " wide.

    Just shy of 6oz unloaded weight difference.

    How about getting a G-26 to go along with the G-17?

    Just a thought. That way everything you have for your G-17 would work in the G-26?

    Glock does indeed make the "last word" in single-stack CCW weapons: the G36.
    Grip thickness is IMO the single most critical dimension for comfort in IWB carry, and the 36 is the only slimline Glock frame.
