    My first Glock. It's a 26 [photos]

    After years and years of carrying 45acp 1911's and most recently [and very briefly], a Kahr PM45, I jumped on board last week and bought a used Glock 26 that belonged to a friend. He owns a plethora of Glock armory and really takes good care of all his weapons so I knew I was getting a pampered weapon .

    We took it to the range a few days ago to check for function and fired about 70 rounds through the pipe with no FTF/FTE issues, and it was dead on at 20ft. I've been carying it since.

    Currently, I have no holster for it but the piece came with a 10 round magazine, an attached clipdraw and a Pearce grip extension. To me the G26 feels much more blocky [but much lighter]than my Colt Commander, but surprisingly conceales just as good, if not better, with the clipdraw than the [leather] holstered 1911.

    So far, Appendix (crossdraw) carry is quickly becoming my favorite way of carrying. I like the idea of having instant access while seated and driving while seat belted. I'm still not too confident carrying at 3:30/4:00 with just the clipdraw so I'll most likely be looking for a good OWB or IWB leather holster in the near future.

    Range report will follow soon. Here's a few photos...

    Clipdraw? I'm assuming you carry without one in the chamber when using the clip...

    Thanks a bunch for all the kind words.

    Presently, I've got it loaded with Remy 115gr. HPs. The 26 eats them like hotcakes.

    What do you keep your G26 loaded with?

    Great weapon... but I wouldn't carry it with a Clip Draw, I want that trigger protected! That's just me!
