Newbie to the forum.

Hello all!

My name is Dara. I reside in Long Beach, CA. I'm 29 years old and just made my first purchase of a Glock 26 (also my first firearm), which will be ready for my pick up tomorrow (06/08/12) in the afternoon. I am really anxious and excited to learn what the Glock Talk forum has to offer. I wasn't much of a glock fanatics in the past just because of dealing more of different firearms with the safety selector. What made me obsessed with Glock is my first time actually shooting one, which was a Glock 19 that my friend owns. I got to sit and made the G19 comfortable with my handling which really situated my preferences really well with size, comfort, and performance.

Hopefully there are some locals I'll bump into at the shooting ranges.

-Dara

Yes!! That same night (06/08/12) I went to an indoor range and put in 150 rounds. I did also practiced on my aiming and it always seems to hit on the lower left from the target. The next day (06/09/12) I went through another 249 rounds. Testing my abilities in rapid fire and consistently working on my aiming, I still made hits on the lower left of the target.

I'll be posting up pictures soon. Mods done were: 2lb Zev Tech V4 Race Connector, ZEV Tech Titanium Firing pin safety, and ZEV Stainless Steel Guiderod for 3rd Gen G26/G27.

I think I still have that trigger jerk sense in me for all that lower left hits. Although, I am in love with the pistol!!!

edit: Forgot to mention that targets from both days were at 15ft.
