I was drawn in by the thumbnail of a comely reviewer.   ::)

What I got was an actual GOOD review.  She knows her firearms.   :o

After a shooting spree, they want to take the guns away from everyone who didn't do it.

Nah.  Just cute.  And far less annoying than Heather.

A good review indeed! Thank you for sharing.

So refreshing to have a review with actual live fire, instead of Internet scuttlebutt from those that have not shot a firearm, and instead parrot "the gun of the" week postings.

Add, being a female, she does have "perceptive's" that are not only great for the female shooters, but some males should take note of as well.

What?  Were you worried that no one posted?  I watched the bloody video, when you posted it - there was nothing to say about it. 

If I had to comment, I would say that I do agree with her (and just about every oner else) that the LC9's trigger is a real detriment.  Why did they copy a pistol, and give it a worse trigger?  That makes no sense.  At all.

The Glock is capable of far greater accuracy than the other guns, better trigger, a mag change away from whatever capacity you want, and you can change the trigger and sights to suit your needs the best. Hands down, it's the way to go.

Yep, the G26 is top self. The only micro single stack I'm interested in is the Walther PPS.

I haven't messed with a LC9 yet.  Is it pocketable?  My LCP is pocketable, and is the gun I carry when I am not carrying a gun. If the LC9 or Nano were carryable in the front pocket of my jeans, I would be sorely tempted.

The way I see a G26 is that it needs a holster, so it might as well be a G19.

I definitely agree, that the Glock is the most practical of the three choices.  However, I think that it is out of place in that company.  The Glock is a double-stack, while the others are single-stack.  This helps with recoil, but also makes the Glock less 'pocketable' - the main point (IMO) of the LC9, PF9, and Nano.

The way I see a G26 is that it needs a holster, so it might as well be a G19. 
I agree. (Basically, the point that I was making, above.) The one instance where I see a G26 being better than a G19, is if a person wished to 'ankle carry.'

Yes, the SIG P290 would have been a better selection in this line up, as would a Kahr.
