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?

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.
Congrats on a fine choice! The G26 is an awesome pistol!

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.
