Well, there you go Dirty Harry, your choice of cannon... weighs you down. I'm half heartedly kidding. Even though the G26 is marketed as a great CC weapon weight with a 10 clip is what something like 22-23 ozs? You have to take your own CC situations into account with what you decide on. There are like at least 10 other CC weapons applicable for lighter wt trail use on the AT. That's a nice carry or the 43 around town or when traveling in a car or on a bike though.
One of the very knowledgeable dealers I've purchased from started laughing as he was thoroughly amused by me of all things bringing a digital scale into his store when I was looking at on trail backpacking options as I weighed everything including various clips, holsters, etc. He eventually started asking me more about UL backpacking when I saw him than discussing guns.
