    Hey Y'all, just wanted to say that I'm happy to have found this site! I do not own a Glock yet. Heck, I've never even fired a Glock yet! I do own an XD 40 service model that I have kinda tricked out. I'm now leaning towards buy a Gen 4 26 though. The baby glocks really intrigue me! I never paid too much attention to Glocks, until I picked up a Gen 4 19, and I fell in love right off the bat. Since I have a compact already I'm looking for a sub-compact and the 26 felt nice to me. Anyhow, I think I might become a Glockaholic soon!

    Hello neighbor. I waited until the Gen3 Glock to jump aboard. The baby Glocks are nice. I have a Glock 27 which I convert to 9mm with a Lone Wolf conversion barrel and some 9mm mags. It make for cheaper range time and gives me flexibility. I carry it with the stock 40 S&W setup.

    I really like how easy it is to maintain and clean a Glock.

    So far, I have 3 Glocks and they are all great (19, 20 and 27).

    I make sure to keep plenty of ammo and magazines. In anticipation of shortages, I also have magazines for other Glocks I have not bought yet.

    If you get the Glock 26, the Glock 17, 18 and 19 magazines will function in it too.

    The ability to use 15,17, and 33 round mags kind of sold me on the 26. Also, I like all the aftermarket parts and assessories too! I was considering the M&P Shield or the new SA XDS9, but capacity is less and I can't even find a shield around here. That little baby Glock should conceal just fine for me.

    Welcome! I echo what ScottieG59 said. You'll really like the Glock. Another nice thing, if you find the grip to be a little short for you liking, it's easy to replace the magazine floor plate with an extension.

    I found that short little grip to fit just right on the Gen4. For some reason the Gen3 26 felt a little unnatural for me. I tucked my pinky underneath and it just felt right, so I'm sold on it. Thanks everyone!
