I had been on the hunt for something better for CCW than my XD9 service. My local shop had a gen 3 G26 that I checked out last weekend. I really liked the way it felt in my hand and it points so naturally for me. I've read a lot of discussions in the past about how the Glock grip angle is such a deal breaker for some. The grip angle on the G26 just feels so natural to me. I am very pleased with this gun, so far. The best part is the trade deal I got from the shop. I traded my 3 month old XD9 service with 400 down the pipe plus $50.00 for the new gen 3 G26. He even threw in an extended mag to go along with the two standard mags that came with the Glock. I am planning on heading to the range on Saturday morning to run a couple hundred rounds through her. I can't wait!
