My Trip to the Dark side

Went to the LGS Saturday to pickup some small pistol primers and as usual did some window shopping. There laying in the used gun case was this pristine (as far as I can tell) never fired Baby Glock. Absolutely no sign of any wear any where on the firearm. All for $350.
Iím now the owner of a Glock. Still love my Kimbers but this little gun shoots pretty good and conceals real good.

Congratulations Albert. I’ve never owned a Glock but there’s no denying they make a very reliable gun. Hope you enjoy your new shooter.

Nice score. Every time you look at that you're going to love the look of your Kimber's even more.

First range trip with the Glock 26. Target is 10 yards. Not a bad shooter for a two finger grip gun. I think I have it dialed in.

Lucky to find any glock (in decent to good condition) in my area for less than 450

When I first got it home to clean and lube it the slide still had the copper colored lube Glock uses when they ship the guns. Donít think the person that had it ever put a round through it.

Nice score, a Gen 4 even. Well done. I had a G27 Gen 3 I passed down to my son, but I want another but a Gen 4 this time. All I have seen so far are more Gen 3's.

A Pearce grip magazine floor plate will greatly improve the feel in your hand with very little impact on concealability.

Iíll be carrying a 17 mag as a backup. So Iím good with just the Pearce extensions for IWB carry and the Standard for pocket. I could get creative and use the 33 round 18 mag.
