    My wife has a new baby...

    ....by the name of Gaston!

    Today my wife traded her Beretta 86 for a Baby Glock - in 9mm.
    We picked up her G26 at the local range complete with CTC Lasergrips. Sweet little carry pistol - I'm actually quite jealous!
    She rented one without the lasergrips and having not shot for about a year, nailed the target with a 5" group at 7 yards. I'm so proud!

    Advantages -
    - it's a Glock so super simple and reliable
    - will take the same mags as my Glock 19 so in a pinch she can use my mags.
    - 9mm is cheaper and a little more effective than her .380 auto was
    - it's smaller so she will actually carry it (in a Galco ankle rig)

    Congrats...

    on the new little addition...
    If your wife is actually going to use her G for EDC...she is a few steps ahead of my wife (she's almost there)...and I've been working on her for many years!

    "I pity the fool..." (as Mr. T. would say...) who messes with an armed, trained, and practiced couple...that's about as good as it gets!

    Stay armed...stay safe!

    Congrats! You can't lose with a G26. Great little pistol. I think it's about the only pistol, I can think of, that you can shoot four different size mags out of it (G26, G19, G17 and G18 mags). Well, I take that back, I can do that with my Kel-Tec PLR-16, but I wouldn't want to CCW that bad boy!
