    My first Glock!!

    I just bought a new Glock 26 today. I went in to buy a bore snake and ended up trading my Taurus 85SS + some cash for it. Came with two mags, sped loader, lock, brush and box, he also threw in the bore snake.

    I can not wait to take it home, clean it and then shoot it. I think I am felling a little ill, I may have to leave work early today....

    This is my first Glock so I know nothing about them. I have heard only good things about their quality and reliability. What are some other things I need to know about this pistol??

    Thanks,
    Dustin

    By the way, I would load a pic but I have tried and failed.

    Do you have an account with a storage site like Photobucket? If not, that's step one. Upload to that site. Then copy the address of the pic. Then come here. Click the button that looks like a mountain in a yellow background. Paste the address in the box that appears. That's it.

    Wow, looks way too small for my hands.

    I bought a fullsize Glock 35 this spring and then a compact-frame 23 later for a CC gun. With a Pierce magazine extender...

    ...the latter felt fine, but I couldn't shoot it well at all, so it's gone. I carry my 35 in a Tommy's Gunpack bellybag.


    I wish you much enjoyment with yours.

    BTW with Photobucket (and others, I'm sure) there's a way to link pics so that you don't get the entire webpage, ads and all.

    425 rounds today with ZERO issues. I used 200 WWB, 150 Brown Bear, 50 HydraShock and 25 Fiochi JHP. I really like this gun but am thinking I should have shot the 27 first. I saw a 29 today, I had no idea they made anything for 10mm. (I am new to the world of Glock)

    It was fun to shoot and after the first 100 I was able to keep in an 8 inch diameter so I was very impressed with the gun overall.

    You will love the G26..Here are a couple of YouTube Vids on cleaning and lubrication for your Glock.

    The G26 is my EDC. My next Glock will be a G19. I went with 9mm because my weapons are for Self and Home Defense. The 9mm allows me the opportunity to train more for less cost when buying ammo. I think the 9mm is more than enough weapon to accomplish my needs. JMHO

    Your gonna love your Glock 26 - we sure like ours and what a great shooter.




    We just added a Crimson Trace Laser Grip to it and can't wait to get back to the range to fine tune the laser, it looks pretty good straight from Crimson.

    I did get the mag extension for one mag and left the other factory. Actaully, I don't have this 26 anymore, knoxrock222 has it. But I did upgrade to the 27!! This one has night sights and I also picked up a Crossbreed Quickclip.
