    FINALLY.....new G26!

    I have wanted a G26 for a long time now, and I finally picked one up this afternoon. I'd post pics, but it looks like every other G26 out there....brand new, two 10 round mags, standard sights. It's going to be perfect for hot weather carry, and as a BUG.

    I've been dry firing it tonight to try to get used to it, but I can see it will take some work. Range report tomorrow!
    G17, G26

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil...

    The G-26 appears to be a great CCW weapon...get some Trij's on it.
    I bought one a couple of weeks ago (when I picked up my Kimber Compact)...I still haven't taken it to the range yet.

    Stay armed...stay safe!

    Doesn't matter. Every baby looks alike, but we all want to see them. Well maybe JD and Lima's baby will be holding a Glock, but hey, they are the exception.

    Get some good night sights too - world of difference. I have the Triji's on the G17, but prefer the High Visibility Tru Glo TFO's on my G256

    Nice. I love my Glock 26. It's a great balance of firepower, reliability, and conceal-ability.

    I got the Pearce mag extensions for all my mags because I just couldn't get used to the "tucked pinkie" technique.

    Thumper, do all your fingers fit under that thing comfortably? Seems like mine just barely fit with the Pearce extensions.

    good choice...now get some XS Big-dots and leave everything else alone

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    I'd put a NY1 Trigger and a 3.5# Connector in it and add a set of Meps if it were me.

    Congrats on the new gun.

    Congrats on a great CCW. You'll be happy I'm sure. It'll make a great BUG for your 17.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    I agree. Every sub compact should have these.



    I am also partial to XS Tritium Big Dots.
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    Great gun... I've thought this will be a great summer carry, but I'm sure it will be a great year round carry. I added Pearce +0 to all but one of my magazines... it's always good to have options. Here is one of my first pictures and then another one with the Pearce +0 magazine extension in a new Mitch Rosen holster:

    Former: Taurus 92SS, SIG P220 TT, S&W 360, SIG P239-40, Ruger 22/45 MKII

    Most excellent choice of pistola!

    The G26 to me is surprisingly accurate for such a small gun. I don't think I could ever let mine go.

    I think everyone needs one in their collection. Along with my 642, it has become a favorite carry. My recent acquisition came with night sights in which I'm well pleased.

    It all comes down to going down the dark holes after monsters. Thatís what itís all about; when everyone else is huddled around the campfire, somebody has to go out and fight.
