    [​IMG][​IMG]My permit came in the mail today and it was off to the DPS to get my license. I stood in line for an hour, little surprised by this, and then off to the gun store. Purchased my first gun, a Glock 26, along with Desantis Cozy Partner Holster, two extra magazines, and five boxes of ammo.

    I will be taking the 26 to a plate shoot tonight for back up guns, 3.8" barrels or less with a five round limit per magazine. Unlimited magazines.

    Thanks everyone for your advise and the multiple threads on this site. The forum was really helpful in making my decision.

    I wanted 26 smiles for your 26 but I could only do 5.

    Good luck with those plates...

    Congratulations!

    My path was 19, 21, 26, 17.

    Regardless, you're already trying to figure out how to get the next one, aren't you? :)
