    Range Report on the OD G26

    I had started a thread asking your opinions on getting a black or OD Glock 26. I had went with the OD and I'm glad that I did.

    I had forgetten how well the 26 shoots. It's no secret, all of you who own one know it's ability. I got used to my G27 which has had the #1 slot in my off-duty carry rotation since I bought it in 2003. I shoot the 27 very well and follow up shots are pretty quick and accurate. But the 26 allows for much faster follow up shots. I was loving it.

    I put 220 rounds of FMJ and some Speer GD's (my choice for carry) through the 26 w/ no malfunctions. I ran them through the stock 10 round mags, some G19, G17 and a G18 (33 round) mag. The gun was dead on, as expected. I put 10 rounds down range at 25 yards off hand for a goof. I shot a 6" spread which isn't spectacular, but not bad considering that I haven't shot in awhile. No sense wasting ammo at distances that aren't very realistic.

    Most of the shooting was done between 5 -10 yards with failure drills from the holster (2 COM, 1 head). I was impressed at how fast I was able to recover. The 27 did this well, the 26 was unbelievable.

    The 26 is completely stock. The only things that I will do are what I do to all of my Glocks; talon rubber grips and Glock NS's. I also usually swap out the grooved trigger for the smooth one from the 17, but I may opt to keep that as is for now.

    I'm very pleased with the 26 and I missed having one for over 8 years. I think that the 26 will move into the #1 slot for off-duty carry followed by my 36 and 19. The 23 and 27 will remain in my locker at work as a duty and BUG respectively.

    I know that I'm not reporting any shocking news as most reports about the 26 are positive. Just thought I'd share another.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    G26 is a "sweet shootin carry pistol"!

    Have owned a G26 since they were introduced in 1995.....the G26 was about the only thing good that came from Clintons Assault Weapons Ban of 1994.

    Congratulations on rekindling an old friendship with your new G26. I will be buried with mine.....they are just that good.

    Thanks everyone. Talon rubber grips have been on the way since I decided to get the 26. Now I just have to put in the order for the Glock NS's.
