Default New Glock owner

As of today I'm officially a first time Glock owner, this is my first conceal an carry gun as well. Went with the 26 as I'm only 5'5 135 and really between the 26 and 27 I just didnt see a reason to go with 40 vs 9. Haven't gotten a holster yet, is that something I should order from Glock or where should I order from? Also what kind of customization can be done to the gun? Once again new to handguns really. Grew up hunting but always riffles.

Try comptac.com for a holster..... its around $70 but its worth your money, so comfortable you want even know your gun is on your hip

I use Backhawk CQC holsters for outside the waistband carry, they aren't super concealable, but are very comfortable and have a retention lock.

For inner waist band carry I use a Galco, very good holster. IWB is the only way to go for concealment, normally not quite as comfortable though.

Congrats on the purchase, I have a Gen3 19 and love it.

Congrats. I like Crossbreed IWB holsters. Very comfortable. I use Fobus for OWB. Everything already suggested is also excellent stuff.

Crossbreed Mini-tuc holster works great with my 27. Also have a Tommy Theis (sp) and a Galco King Tuck that are top quality too.

There is an article on customizing a GLOCK in the latest issue of American Rifleman.
