The 26/27 line are fantastic little guns. They are every bit as good as the compacts and full size guns. Great conceal carry guns. I've got a Pierce grip extension on mine and I shoot it every bit as well, if not better than my dads full size glocks.

Denny Dennis had a pretty decent selection of ammo when I was there ( they actually had .38 target ammo....), but maybe 10 handguns in their case. Cabela's did not have a single pistol round, self defense or target, in stock when I was there 2 weeks ago,but had a pretty good selection of handguns. Mid America arms is hit or miss on ammo, but has a much better selection of handguns.

Most places around here have not been raising their prices on handguns. When I have seen Glocks they have been high 500 low 600 range which has been pretty typical for retail around here.

Gun shows around here are basically a joke. 20-25 per 50 for 9mm is the norm, which is a travesty. I saw .40 for as high as 35 per 50 recently, and laughed at the guy. Most of the guns at the shows are equally overpriced, but every once in a while you can find someone who is willing to deal. My buddy picked up a used gen 4 g21 with all 3 magazines for 475, the guy had it marked at 599.....

I have had better luck finding ammo online, at sites like gunbot, or ammoseek. Waiting for the craze to pass before I think about another new pistol......
Cabela's is really hit or miss with their ammo. I snagged some PMC 40 this morning. It's all about timing. Found 100 rounds of Winchester white box 40 at bass pro two or three weeks ago for 35

I spent about 10 years in the Cape Girardeau area, had 100 acres on top of the ridge between Delta and Advance.

I haven't yet. I probably will at some point. One of my buddies says it's pretty expensive. I usually stick to the conservation ranges.

I'm just north of Kansas City. I buy most of my guns at Show Me Shooters. I've shot at the range there a few times, but mostly shoot in my back yard.

South KC here, I agree, Show-me-shooters usually has a good supply of glocks. Nice shooting range there as well. Good folks, reasonable to deal with. There is pin-shooting on Thursday evening.

They have different levels of participation. Anyone can go for $20.00/hour. You should check it out! (A new range is being built in Wentzville on the south service road.....)
