    If any of you recall my posting history on Glocktalk, any time the question comes up about "should i get a 19 or 26" I am a staunch advocate of the 19. I have said over and over that I have no interest in a 26.

    Well, that changed this past weekend when I was talking guns with a buddy of mine who is a Dallas PD officer. Anyways it came up that he was looking to sell his 26, as he doesn't carry it anymore as he no longer does undercover work. Out of Idle curiosity i asked how much he was looking to get for it. He told me since he knows how much I like Glocks and cause we are friends, he'd sell it to me for $300. For that price, I got interested in the 26.

    Its a Gen 3 made in 2008. Looks like he didn't shoot it too much cause it still had some copper colored lube in the slide when I disassembled it.

    Score!

    I predict you will like it a bunch! Sounds like it hasn't been used very much. Congrats on an excellent purchase!

    I think you'll like the 26 just as much as the 19. Excellent gun/price congrats!

    The glock 26 was my first and I have since bought (and still own) numerous other glocks, but the 26 remains my go-to gun for edc.

    I carry my 19 most of the time, but I really like my 26 and
    sometimes I carry it just because it feels so good.
    I really like them both and could not sell either one.
    You did really well on your choice and price.

    Enjoy your G26. I continue to believe it is about Glock's best.

    For $300 (and it sounds like a typical police gun- that is, near new condition), even if you don't have a need for it, you absolutely can't go wrong.
