    Ugly glock followed me home again

    Well I am rejoining the Glock bandwagon. I had a Glock 26, decided I wanted a revolver (having never shot one), sold my Glock and got a S&W 640. Long story short, even after a trigger job and a couple hundred rounds I wasn't nearly as accurate with it as I would like. A guy made an offer on it, and I went right back to a brand new shiny Glock 26. Not planning on getting rid of this one though. I plan on upgrading it with night sights and an extended slide release. Looking at the XS big dot, or some other type of i dot type sight. Can you still be very accurate with that type of sight and what are your recommendations? Here is the new ugly little bugger sitting next to my Kimber.

    I think guns are like insurance. I would rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.

    Welcome back to the Glock 26. They do have a tendency to follow you home. Especially if you go the LGS and test shoot one. Then it wants to stay in your hands...it will follow you home...

    I am only speaking from experience

    G26 is an excellent choice (says me....who owns one)
    Looking for night sights, you say? Try going to Ameriglo's site.
    They have some of the best sights available, and if you ever need to call them to ask questions....their customer service is outstanding! They will spend the time to help you make a good decision and order the right sights for your pistol.

    Nice add Bgusty. It's good to see someone with a 1911 and a Glock...each platform has its pros so get one of each and cover all the bases!
