We both got a chance to go out shooting this morning. This was her first time shooting her G26. She put the magazine in, slid the slide forward and it didn't close all the way. The second time she was fine, I do keep pointing out there is no need to baby the slide, let 'er rip. She had one piece of brass come back and almost go down her shirt but everything else went sideways where it should. She only shot 30 rounds through it as she was getting tired. I had a couple pieces of brass land on the brim of my hat out of 110 rounds. She shot 10 rounds on the G19 and decided she is happier with the size and feel of the G26. We are just getting into pistol shooting, though we have done it a couple times in the past. I did find it interesting I was more on target and had a better group shooting one handed quickly than slow two handed shooting. So far we are happy with the guns.
