    Just picked it up today from another GT member. 5000 rounds through the gun but it looks NIB. Came with tupperware, all papers and 3 spare mags. Night sights installed. Also gave me an Alessi Talon IWB holster (Looks barely used), but i'm left handed so it's kinda useless to me. Feel free to make me an offer on that if you want. Should fit any G26/27

    I'll leave this here this time, but in the future, please put all "For Sale" posts in the classified area. Thanks!

    selling the holster was more of an afterthought. This is more of an "excited about my new glock" post

    Kinda what I was thinking; which is why I left it.

    Congrats! I love my G26. It's a fine little weapon that always makes me look like a better shooter than I really am.

    I like my new 26 as well (and I also bought it from a GT user).

    The 26 is hard to beat. I have an accumulation of Glocks. Went to the range this morning to put a few rounds through my 23 and 30 in preparation for tomorrow's steel plate shoot (trying to decide which to compete with). Got to the range, opened my bag and no pistols! All I had with was the 26 I carry. Broke out some 9mms and had at the plates. Did as well with it, in spite of the shorter barrel, as I do with the larger pistols. Decided to try it at the shoot tomorrow (with the grip extensions).

    Came in third, Sunday, at the plate shoot in the bottom feeder division. First place went to a Beretta 92FS, second place went to a Para LDA. I had a little difficulty at the 25 yard line.

    Also (braggin' rights), I took first place in the stock service revolver class with a 4" Ruger GP. I've had it for years and the triggers smoothed out, about the same as my Smith 686. Needless to say, my hat's just a little tight. Only thing better would have been to take the pistol competition also.

    My first Glock was a G26 and I find I like it more and more. This past weekend I added a G19 to my arsenal. Congrats!

    Cheers!;c

    G19 was my first gun and it's still going strong 13 years later.

    As most folks' would, due to the short sight radius. Still, that's some mighty fine shootin'. I toast your performance; even while up against full-size weapons at ridiculous distances, I believe you did Glock (and Glock owners) proud!

    The G26 is one of the best 9mm you can buy.

    26 is a smooth pistol, my wife, daughter do very well with that gun . Very managable recoil.
