    Im a Glock convert!!

    I purchased a Glock 26 last Monday because I needed a new ccw. I usually carry a Beretta 9000s but wanted something a little smaller. I originally was looking at the PX4 sub-compact (I love Beretta) but on a whim, ended up with the Glock. WOW! What a pistol!! I thought I was pretty accurate with my Beretta but I was dead on with my new 26 with out a single FTF or FTE through 200 rounds! Now I get why Glock people love their guns and I'm now one of them!!

    Funny you should say that. The 26 was so impressive and comfortable to me, that I found myself eyeing the 19 as I left the range this morning....

    what I love about them is the way the g26 fits in your hand. the first time you pick one up it feels solid for a 19oz gun and it fits my hand like it was made for it. the 5 lb sharp trigger snap with out all the creep that 8 lbs trigger have is heven

    I agree. Even with my pinky curled up under the magazine, it still manages to be a very comfortable gun. The 5lb trigger is soooo smooth and easy to get used to. Leagues better than my LCP!! The trigger is even slightly better than (dare I say it!) my Beretta.

    I switched to carrying a 17 about a year and a half ago after carrying 1911's for years. I miss my Nighthawks, but the Glock just works better for me.
