Look what followed me home from the gun store...

"He must have gotten lost; been part of a convoy or something"

Dont worry, I will give him a good home (Wait arent you supposed to refer to guns as women?) Anywho... what you are looking at here is a 9mm Gen 4 Glock 26 with the large back strap installed.

For those of you who have been following along, this is Glock 26 number two for me (If video games have taught me anything...). This one was purchased so that I could give my wife back her Glock 26 that I had acquisitioned from her when I got my concealed weapons permit. Yes, I am a big fan of the 26 and its my #1 choice for concealed carry (YMMV).

My wife was really glad to get her gun back too. Really glad. She literally squealed like a little girl with the excitement of it all (which is ok because she is a girl)...

If you ever have to go buy a gun because your wife really wants her gun back, you might be a redneck.

As excited as she was, I have to say that I was kinda bummed. I felt like I was loosing an old friend in a way. This has been my primary carry gun for as long as I have had my permit. Its got a lot of rounds through it and has proven to be a ridiculously reliable gun. I'm pretty bummed about not having it on my hip anymore. On the other hand, I do want my wife to have as reliable of a gun as possible, so that is very reassuring.

More to come as I can get out to the range and put this thing through its paces.

*No, I will not being doing a full-on generational side-by-side picture spread. The Internet already is very well versed in that.


  1. For whatever reason I'm able to shoot a 26 better than a 19... I'm not sure why, but I love that gun!

  2. I have not shot the 19, but I do shoot the 26 better than the 17. The grip angle on the sub-compact is different than the other two. I also shoot the 45s better that the 9mms, but that is probably due more to the extra weight.

  3. "Thats no moon... Its a space station."

  4. Hmmm nice, agree with the comment about the heavy gun I am the same I shoot better with a heavier handgun
