    New Glock fan!

    I picked up my first Glock this week. For all the years I have owned guns I have never owned a Glock so I decided to try one and bought myself a G26 4gen. I took it the range yesterday and I have to say I am impressed. My typical carry gun is a Usp compact but I was looking for something a bit smaller and lighter. It definitely shoots different than my DA/SA HK but it is a great shooter! For my first range trip with it yesterday it felt very comfortable and just easy to shoot. It is a lot more accurate than I thought it was going to be with some very decent grouping with good follow upshots. I ran about 200 rounds through it with a combination of crappy aluminum Blazer and Speer gold dot HP with no issues. I think this will be my new carry weapon once I find a good owb holster for it. It looks like Glock is not all hype and I would definitely recommend one so far. It is also a pretty easy transition from my HK to the this gun as well.
    Thanks for reading!

    New Glock fan!

    I love my glock 19 and 23, both gen 4. They are great, simple handguns that just go bang every time.

    I just picked up a gen 4 G26 a few days ago to replace the G3 G26 that is on load to a friend. I absolutely love it. It's everything that makes my G3 great with a couple extra bells and whistles. The G26 is still the compact carry gun that I judge all other compact carry guns by.

    The 26 is one of the best models they make. If you wear the right trousers you can even carry it in a pocket holster.

    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.

    Love my Glocks and I want to get a G23 for EDC. My Sigs were bothering my back so I've switched to the lighter Glocks and it has helped my back.

    I've never met a Glock I didn't like.
    That Glock-26 is a fine carry pistol. Just this morning, I took a visiting sister-in-law, who had never fired a gun...out to the range.
    We started with a .22, then a .32, on to a .380...then a .38 and to a .357. Then we jumped to a couple of Glocks. She fired the G-36 pretty well, she wasn't intimidated at all. Then she fired the Glocki-26 and put 6 out of 10 inside a 8" circle at 21'...I was impressed...so was she.
    She liked the Glock-26 best of all.

    The trouble with Glocks is that you have to shoot them.

    If you just fondle one in the store, you'll never be impressed. Looks are so-so, ergos are merely adequate. The factory sights leave much to be desired.

    But if you shoot one........it's on. Throw some real sights on it and you have a darn good gun. Very fast.

    Glad you are enjoying your glock! The 23 is my favorite gun and plan on getting some more glocks down the road.
