    Well I have finally joined the Glock family. It's been a long time coming but I made it! I have been contemplating buying a Glock for a few years now but I just diddnt have the money to spend on a new piece soooo I decided to trade in my full size HK USP for a G26. I like the HK but it's just too big. Its a fun shooter but just not very practical. I am looking forward to having my G26 accompany me in my waistband.

    Congrats! Nice choice, you'll enjoy your new gun for many years.

    I sure enjoy my G27.

    Thanks guys. Can't wait to take it out to the range tomorrow... Any suggestions on ammo or will she eat pretty much anything? I may polish the ramp tonight too.

    For factory ammo, I have yet to find ANYthing that Glocks won't gulp right down and poop right out.

    For 9mm's especially, there's literally a plethora of good range ammo to choose from. You'll hear from several who are die-hard WWB users (I used to be one), but anytime I can get a deal on Sellier&Bellot, I buy it. Otherwise, I'm pretty pleased with the results using Federal Champion, although I've torn up lots of paper with PMC and BlazerBrass. However, the S&B and FC seem to be much more consistent and accurate than the other two, in my experience.

    Congrats! Shoot whatever is cheapest and never mind the polishing. ;)

    The G-26 may be the greatest CCW out there.

    Don't polish the ramp. Just shoot the thing. It'll eat anything.

    I bought this gun brand new and the finish on the slide is like 98.5%... Anyone else seen this on a brand new Glock? The dealer said he has had this g26 for quite a while. The shell casing was collected from the over a year ago. Is this "imperfect" slide from the factory or from the dealer? Either way its not terrible... any thoughts on doing a duracoat?

    I prefer the hard chrome just because of the two tone look but to each his own. Congrats on the new toy

    I recently got my 26 (2 weeks ago) and I noticed the same thing on my slide...you can definitely tell the difference between it and the finish on my 2 19s...
