    This Followed Me Home...

    After my ongoing LC9 fiasco (and Ruger's DGAF attitude about the situation)...I decided to get an EDC that I can actually trust right out of the box. I debated the 19gen4 but decided for summer the 26 is a better choice, a 19 will likely follow this fall. It came with 3 10rd mags, I bought a 17rd mag and will also get a 15rd mag when I find one. A few pics for now:

    Anyone notice something about the test fire casings? Maybe they're trying to tell us something?

    Read the head stamp and consider the color of the casing...

    My Glock 23 test fired back in 2010 had the same spent casings in .40, so I don't think it's an ammo shortage thing.

    Congrats on the new Glock 26. I really like my Gen 4 G27 and the other subcompact Glocks as well. Are you planning to install night sights?

    Good choice on the G26. I picked up a G19 and a G26 last year and the G26 has been my favorite by far. It's so handy yet very shootable.

    Re the casings, I'm a little concerned about the firing pin "skid marks" in the primer - I see a lot of displaced metal there. It looks to my eye like the gun is trying to eject the spent cartridge while the firing pin is still fully 'home', which suggests a timing situation that's less than ideal. Anyone else catch this, or am I splitting hairs?

    Putting that aside, I have a question about using a substantially longer mag in a Glock that normally takes a standard-length mag. Clearly it will fit, but what happens if you slap the long mag home with the same vigor that you (I) use to seat a regular mag? I'm pretty aggressive with mag changes, having been 'burned' in matches by being too delicate about seating mags in a reload. If I carry a long mag like that, I want to know beyond the shadow of a doubt that when I slap that mag home I'm not going to tie up the gun.
