First range visit with G26
I picked up my brand spanking new G26 yesterday and immediately took it to the range. I didn't have much time (had to cook dinner - dang domestic duties) but I got to put 50 round through it real quick.
Previously, most of my shooting comes from a govt issue 1911A1 so I immediately noticed a few things.
1) Dang this gun is small! I am not a big guy, but the shorter sight radius and grip made a bigger impact than I expected it would.
2) That's a long trigger pull - compared to my 1911. I found myself anticipating the discharge much sooner than it actually occured. I think there are some habits to un-make there. Does anyone have training tricks for that (besides "just shoot it")?
I imagine I'll get used to it with practice - even right out of the box (and not having shot a handgun for 8+years) I managed to put every shot within the 9 ring and most within the 10 at about 10 ft.
Overall - I'm very happy with the gun and hope to CCW it (if the Peoples Republic of California graces me with that privelage)
