Long time member... first time Glock owner… I've owned and been happy with a Steyr M40-A1 for years... I always missed the availability of accessories/Holsters, but hey... It's a fantastic gun. Well, my son turned 22 last weekend. He works hard, but supports a girlfriend and doesn't have a lot of extra cash, so there is no room in his budget for a pistol. I'm not sure if the end of the world is coming in December, and I'm pretty sure that zombies aren't going to be breaking down my back door, but I do feel the same civil unrest that everyone else is feeling and I think everyone should be armed and trained. What can I say... God put it on my heart to make sure he was, so I gave him my beloved Steyr for his birthday. He has liked the gun since I bought it. I have since received 2 range reports from him… still sounding like a kid at Christmas…lol Now, here is where it gets strange.... all of a sudden I get a $600 windfall.... go figure, right?! ... Off to the gettin store I go… I checked out all the pistols that interested me, and it boiled down to 2, the FNH FNP9 and the Glock 26 Gen4. The Glock just felt like more gun. It was smaller, yet just a little heavier; the barrel is about twice as thick... The weapon just felt right at home in my hand. It was pre-owned with exactly 4 rounds shot through it, for $399.00 It just screamed take me home... so throw in a box of Winchester Hollow points and a Blackhawk holster, and color me gone. I have never filled out the paperwork so fast. Next was a trip to the range, (naturally) … and I'm in love.... the range has targets set up for 50 through 65 yard distances between them, and I'm smacking the 6" metal plates every time, with the semi-auto equivalent of a snub nose... I was astounded. Impressed does not even begin to explain how I feel about this little Glock. I want.... no... at this point I need to go buy more ammo and smack around some more targets.
