    Went to buy either a 26 or a 19 and the gun shop was out of 19s. Now I want a matching 19 to go with my 26

    Cool. I'd look at the 17 next. You might like the grip better than the 19. At least worth a look :)

    I was informed that the better half gets the next firearm.

    I've put over 1,000 rounds through mine since buying it at thanksgiving and love it! I think you'll love it the more you shoot it.

    Most excellent. After about 15 different Glocks, I have settled on a Gen 4 Model 26 as my ONLY handgun ... in fact, once I sell my pump shotgun, it will be my only gun of any kind. The money I've made selling guns has been going into ammunition and IDPA matches. I want that gun to feel like my best friend every time I pick it up.

    Congratulations.

    I have the Glock 19 as a companion for my G26. I like the fact that the G19 or G17 magazines work in the G26.

    Congratulations!!! The 26 is my EDC. That's the one pistol you'd have to "pry from my cold, dead hands."

    I've told this before, but you're fairly new to GT.

    My wife is a former Marine and an avid shooter. When I bought a 19, I asked my wife to come along to the range and help me run the first five hundred rounds through it. Of course, she agreed.

    On the way back home from the range, she told me that "We should stop at Spurlock's (my LGS) and get another one because this one is mine.":rofl:

    So, I did.

    Sbeetz,

    Congrats on the purchase of your G26. I have a Gen 3 and I love it... in fact I carry it with me every day. :winkie:

    I would most definately look for and purchase a G19 next. IMO it is my most versital hang gun that I now own.

    Lowjiber... I love that story!

    Practice often and be safe :thumbsup:

    Seems to be quite a few new 26 owners lately. I love mine, congrats on the new piece.
