If he was magically rejuvenated to his 50's or 60's, however, I don't think he would have eliminated the finger grooves and dimensions of the G26 grip which was perfection in my opinion. The finger grooves somehow bothered me on my Gen3 & Gen4 G19 pistols, but they never bothered me on the G26 and I prefer them over them missing on my Gen5.

Mihalek, a retired senior Secret Service agent and ABC News contributor.
