    I just picked up a used, but never been fired G26 for $399. I really like the concealabilty in comparison to my G23 but I did go down in caliber size. What are your thoughts on the G26 how do they handle? I have seen reviews both pros and cons but hey its a glock and I love it, can't wait to take it to the range soon...

    I carry a G26 Gen4 everyday and I feel totally comfortable with this firearm, I load it with Speer Good Dot 124g +p ammo and it is very accurate and quickly able to get a follow up shots, because the recoil is not that bad.... I would definitely recommend the G26 you can not go wrong.

    Enjoy your new purchase, and give us a range report when able, I'm 100 % certain you will be pleased with your choice

    I have the same combo. A G23 and a G26. Love my 26, even for the range. A pierce grip extension is a must for extensive range use though. Good price, great gun.

    I went with the G27 since I have the G22 and G23 and wanted to stick with the same caliber and share magazines. I'd say you got a great deal for $400! My G27 also was used but like new. It's a 2004 Gen 3.

    You might want to buy a G19 mag and screw on a mag sleeve. Then you'll almost have a G19 to go along with your G23! With just a mag swap you can go from G26 to G19!

    Great to hear all the positive reviews from you guys, its a 2011 Gen 3 G26 the guy that originally bought it had it for less than two weeks and brought it back to the shop to get money for the casino, idiot. Guy didn't even open the envelop for the registration paperwork, def a score on my end. Overall its such a great lightweight carry weapon, I will swap it out with my other CCW the M&P .45, cheers and Happy New Year!!!

    BAH, if you wanted a g19, just get a 40-9 conversion barrel, g19 ejector and mags for your 23. :D

    I am currently using a Blackhawk size 8 hip holster, I am probably going to look for IWB holster for it too. I am thinking I may go with a holster that has an extra mag attached to it, any suggestions. Here's a pic of it in my current size 8.

    I was considering that idea but wanted to actually downsize for CCW as I usually carry the 45, the 23 is mainly my range gun...
