    Good for you!

    I am ok with that story. I have both Kimbers and Glocks in the safe. The Glocks go with me all the time and the Kimbers just to the range.

    Have carried Glocks for 15 years now in all kinds of holsters. Just acquired a G26 Gen 4 myself not long ago. I never would have thought it, but after spending all kinds of bucks on production and custom holsters, I decided to try the Glock Sport Combat holster first for the 26. I have to say, I'm really, really happy with it. I didn't want to like it, but I do. Holds the gun in tight to the side, it is comfortable, light, secure and inexpensive. You might consider giving one a try before you drop some larger coin on the above. It is not IWB, but you don't have much to loose. If you don't like it for EDC, it is a good back up holster and you won't be out a lot of money.

    How do you like that extended slide release on the glock? I am not sure if that is something worth investing in or if I would be better off leaving it as is and utilizing a sling shot approach more often.

    You might consider Tru Glo Tritium Fiber Optic sites too - Tritium, plus FO for that low light dusk/dawn "pop". I have sets on all of my Glocks, including the 26. I love them. They help my older eyes.

What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    Any issues with durability of those TFO's? My only experience with FO is on rifles and shotguns and those break far too easily for my comfort. I have meprolight sights on my Kimber and those are excellent at night and work just fine during the day as a regular white dot sight basically. I kind of like the idea of a XS big dot too but haven't had any experience with those.

    Congrats, hard to go wrong with a glock.

    If you plan on carrying extra magazines, consider a larger one for your spare(s). A G17 mag will add extra rounds, and may give you faster mag changes (more to hold onto, those small mags are easy to fumble under stress).

    I also like the pearce grip extensions on the flush fit mags. You can shave the right and left sides down to give it more of triangular shape, and for me the gun prints less than with the flush magazine (breaks the square handle shape).

    One advantage to using the 'slingshot' approach (if done properly) is that you will build muscle memory for a technique that will work on all semi-autos (slide release is not located in the same spot on all pistols).

    When you say to shave the sides are you talking about the sides directly underneath the grip where it is flat or the extended pinky area? Thanks for the idea

    Extended pinky area.

    I've modified several pearce grip extensions, usually to make them fit magazines they were not designed for. Once I start sanding them, it's tough not to get a little carried away and start playing with the shape.

    The attached photos show the XD9 grip extension I'm currently running on my CZ 2075. I was going to clean up the surface finish, but I've found I like the texture in hand, so I'll probably leave it. The original extension was wider and had a square profile to match the XD grip.
