    Targets G19 & G26

    I rented the 19 & 26 the other day to see which one I want to get next, I might try some other but this is my first stage of my searching. BTW this was at 15 ft. with 50 rounds each, I wanted to get some what an average for now.

    Looks like either one will work for you. Which felt better to you?

    They must've been "target" rounds not Hornadys Refrigeratormax ammo.

    Get the 19, the 26 will follow soon.

    Apparently the G19 doesn't do head shots?

    FWIW, both of mine shoot the exact same groups at the same distances.

    Dang! I thought this was a thread about Target selling pistols now. Oh well, a guy can dream can't he?

    Admittedly, I am certainly NOT the sharpest tool in the shed, 'cause sometimes I haven't the foggiest idea what a new thread is supposed to ask, show or tell. Uhhh... nice shooting?

    Which one did you shoot first, and which one second? And at what distance(s)?

    Perhaps, if you shot the 26 first, the more accurate shooting on the 19 target could be simply a result of your having gotten acquainted with Glock on the first target. Or, perhaps the lack of a place to put your pinky finger on the 26 could have made a difference. Grip extender mag plates will correct that problem - if it is a problem. I use Pearce.

    I shot the 26 first , I was aiming at the head on with the 26 but I wasn't aiming at the head with the 19, both targets was done at 15 ft. I'm thinking that with the 26 I can get better but then again I was aiming for the head, the guy that I got my XDs which is a FFL had a Gen 4 G19 but I didn't really like the grip. He had it for about $500 dollars which I almost got it but I wanted to do some more testing. I love them both but I need or want to get one, conceal is not big of a problem because I can conceal my XDm 4.5 pretty good.

    I like them both and I will probadly get them both in time for now only one, and yeah you're right about time I shot the 19 I was a little better as far as knowing what to expect.

    Thanks for posting the detailed answers to my questions. Whichever Glock you decide to buy "first" - Welcome to Glock-ville!

    (I also shoot S&W revolvers and know that there is a place in our lives for more than one brand, even though I sometimes don't admit it....)

    Thanks, I was toying with the ideal to just stay with the .45's or get a 9mm because I don't have any 9mm just two .45.

    If its for carrying and concealing isn't a problem, then the G19 would be the better option, as in 15 rd vs 10 rd.

    Get the 19 and then the 26 if you feel the need.

    I don't like the Gen4 grips either, but nothing a 12 buck set of Talon grips doesn't solve :)
