    Talking NEW Glock 26

    Bought my first gun yesterday and hard-cored debated on a SA XDM-40 SC or a Glock 27. I really wanted the Glock but no one had any or knew when they were getting any and wasn't sure what color and I was dead-set on all black. Went to 4 different shops looking and only one had a decent price ($539 brand-new). I went to eat and talked it over with my dad and finally decided that a 9mm would do just fine for CCW and it's a lot cheaper to shoot than a .40 at the range. So I got a Glock Model 26 black/olive drab with a Pearce Grip Extender and a box of ammo. Field stripped, cleaned, and lubed yesterday evening while my not-so-eager fiance watched lol. Going to the range in a bit to fire it for the first time. It may have been me but I couldn't find anywhere in the papers that it suggests the # of rounds for a break-in period. I just have one box but I reload and will be buying more within the next few weeks and plan to spend some serious time at the range to get this bad boy broke in. This will also be my CCW.

    Congrats on your purchase. I promise you will not be disappointed. You will get a life time out of that gun.

    There really is no break in period on a Glock. They are ready to go out of the box.

    Enjoy!

    Ok so only got to put 1 mag through it but I'm in love! It shoots like a dream and has hardly any recoil for being as small and light as it is. Very accurate despite me not shooting to the best of my ability. Any recommendations on a holster for CCW?

    Not meaning to hijack but I am getting a 26 on Monday. Is there anything that is nice to have with one of these. I am going to get a IWB holster. I was wondering about a Plus one adapter or the finger extension for at least one of the magazines. I am alos thinkning about getting one 17 or 19 magazine to.

    Get yourself a Comp-tac Mtac IWB holster and be done with it, or Crossbreed Super Tuck one of the two, super comfy, don't end up with a drawer full of holsters, just get the best to begin with.

    Your not hijacking at all bro, be glad to help anyway I can. At this moment I have the Pearce Grip Extender for one mag, not the plus one cause I really hope 10 rds will be more than enough if the need ever arises to have to protect myself and my family. I really like the grip, it just makes the gun feel like its supposed to be there instead of just being there.

    Comp-tac Mtac IWB holster or Crossbreed Super Tuck
    From what I have gathered these are two of the best but if you don't spring for either of these just get the cheap uncle Mikes IWB nylon one for like $9 I have heard there are as good as any that are under the $60 mark. Plus it makes a good holster to just for use of storeing in a vehicle or bag.
    I am kind of itrigued by a ankle holslter as my father used to carry a 38 on his right leg.

    DO NOT get a cheap holster for IWB everyday carry. Been there done that and so have the other experienced folks here. The Mike's is great for protecting you gun when you have to disarm in your vehicle (post office, bank, schools, ect.). Don't skimp on your carry holster. If you plan to carry that means you will need to take a class, which I suggest you do. If you already have, then they should have went over properly carrying in a good holster.

    Ankle EDC works, again if you have a quality holster. I have tried this route too. Uncomfortable as all get out. YMMV.

    Good holsters can be expensive, but worth it it most cases. If you can buy a $500 gun to carry, you should be able to buy a $75 holster.

    I got the same gun last summer and like you got my CCP shortly after that. I've used the Uncle Mikes $9 IWB for a while, not good for daily use. Short periods of time was ok at best.

    I bought a Blackhawk! Serpa holdter (OWB). I found myself using OWB moreso b/c of being more comfortable. But b/c of it being during colder months a light jacket concealed plenty. I am waiting on the crossbreed supertuck to arrive, being warmer months are right around the corner and the jackets stay in the closet.

    As suggested, get a quality holster. You will thank yourself for it later.

    Good shootn to you!!

    Took the class around Nov. of last year and just turned in the application not even 2 wks ago to see if I'm approved and actually got a letter in the mail the day I got the gun approving me so I'll be going in the morning to get my permit.

    So a Blackhawk! Serpa for cold and either a Comp-Tac Mtac or a Crossbreed Supertuck for warm. I could deal with that. Found the Blackhawk ones at LGS for around $15-$20 and the others were about $60-$90. Anyone have experience with these 3 holsters care to chime in and give me the pros and cons of ACTUAL people and not just what the manufacturer site says about them? I trust everyday users comments over the companies' anyday.

    I used to wear a pancake holter in my LE days but I need it a little more concealed. I will miss my old P32 during the summer for sure.

    Get a good quality belt to go with your holster.

    I find the 26 to be just at that point where it is too small for my hands. But my roommate's girlfriend loves it. Of course her hands are small. Congrats on your purchase.

    My hands aren't big but I have long fingers. When I first held one I didn't like it but after holding it with the grip extender it fit like a dream.

    You won't regret it! My next purchase will more than likely be a Glock or a S&W 1911 for home defense along with a good ol' Mossberg Tactical Pump.

    No break in period for a Glock, that's true, but there is usually a break in period for the shooter
