I decided to visit my local gun dealer today. Afterall, it IS a long weekend, so had to kill some time. As I walked by one of the gun cases, I decided to look at a S&W 22 Mag revolver....It certainly was a sweet lil gun with the exception of HEAVY trigger pull. Then looked at a Taurus 9 shot airweight 22 revolver. Again, a HEAVY HEAVY trigger pull. Don't think my daughter would like at all.
Then I decided to look at a Glock 19. I began to feel a quiver on my strong side. As I held the G19, racked the slide, and sighted it against the wall, my side began to not just quiver, but tremble. I couldn't understand what was happening. I started to hand the weapon back to the counter man and darn if I didn't pull my debit card out and my CWP and told him to write it up. It was then I thought I heard it! A small moan. The fella behind the counter looked at me as if he knew. He asked me "Owned a Glock before?". I said "Yup, Have a G26 as my EDC". He smiled, and it was then that I knew...My G26 had moaned. He said it was normal, that he had heard the sound before as a G19 was being purchased. But I had this Terrible Feeling that my best friend had been hurt beyond repair. As I got in my truck, I reached down and reassured her that she would always be my first love. I thought I heard a sigh, and then I cranked my HEMI and headed to the house WITH MY NIB GLOCK 19.
Now, have to order my XS Big Dots and get with Dave at Lil Bear for a holster...What a great weekend this is!!
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

Enjoy the new Glock.
Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience.
Nice addition to the collection. Might I suggest that you share the 19 with the 26 by letting her use the 19s magazines. maybe she won't resent the new kid so much.

The good thing is that you can put the G-19 barrel in the G-26; the added length will give the old girl the ballistics of a G-27 (.40)
You can also use the G-19 mags in the G-26; I do it all the time; with a +2, the G-26 becomes an 18 rounder !!!

Glocks are very territorial....
What we've got here is failure to communicate.
My Wife gets exactly the same feeling every single time she attends a Tupperware party and handles a brand new set of plastic storage bowls.
On a serious note...Congrats on the new firearm acquisition.

Territorial? Sounds to me that they multiply like friendly rabbits.
Congrats on the new Glock.
Excellent choice. I think everyone should own a Glock 19.

Glock27/ KaBar TDI/ MTAC Holster. I have more also, but this combination works well..
Good on ya 1st Sgt. The G19 was my first Glock love though it took some time to get use to her " functional beauty". She just did not have the natural beauty of my S&W 6906. But then we went to the range more and more and soon, well you know the feeling by now. Then a few years back I met her sister Ms. G23. I must admit that more and more these days I am taking out her sister and recently I have even considered doing a threesome. Is that wrong ?

LOL. My G19 freaked out a little when I got the G26. Although that was nothing compared to the mayhem from the Glock family when I recently put a SA 1911 in the safe with them.

That's why, when I visit the gun store, I stay away from the case that has the Glocks in them. If I ask to see a G26, G27 or G33, I might not let them put it back in the case. I have the G19 already and he has several friends (Beretta, Taurus, Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson, Colt, Remington, Mossberg) but no other close relatives (members of the Glock family) right now.
