Why do the GBI carry g26's?

    I've always been curious as to why I see GBI guys carrying the G26. Why not the G19? Is it a way to encourage off duty carry since its subcompact. Or maybe because of some other reason? I noticed a GBI officer at the dome tonight carrying a G26 with an extended mag. Most of them do (of the ones I've seen) and so maybe there's a GBI employee on here (or anyone else) who could answer this?
