Howdy, from Texas

Hey all,

I registered some time ago, but have not made it over since my account was activated.

Sadly I never looked at Glocks untill the sandy hook shooting. I always told myself I would buy a Glock 17, but did not like the way it felt in my hand (Little did i know i was holding it incorrectly).

Well i took my CHL class, and picked up a Glock 26.

The 26 was a no-brainer for me. I looked at the 10mm SUBCOMPACT, but decided I didn't want to over penetrate if i ever have to use my weapon with people around.

There were other guns like the XDS that seemed like great options, but in the end the Glock won out for me for a couple reasons.

1) its a subcompact, but its not tiny. Still feels like a full gun when i shoot it.

2) and most important ... No concealed carry option that I am aware of can match the firepower of the Glock 26. With madmen out there, i like that i have a couple Glock 18 magazines in my car, just in case.

I plan to pick up a Glock 35, and a Glock 29 as a backup gun for camping.

Hope to make some friends here!

thanks.
