Had an hour to kill at lunch time so I went on over to Cheaper Than Dirt and ended up buying a baby Glock (Glock 26). It's going to be my carry gun. It felt so great to walk into a gun store, buy a gun and a couple of 15 round Glock 19 mags (for those that don't know, 9mm glocks will accept mags from any other 9mm Glock)....then WALK OUT OF THE STORE WITH MY PURCHASE! No gun jail! The whole transaction was less than 1/2 hour and I was at the range shooting the little bastard 2 hours later. :D

It shoots great by the way. Decent 6 inch groups at 15 yards. I shot it better than my full size G21 SF. Now I just need to buy a holster for this thing.

After dealing with California gun laws for so long, it's a huge relief to not have to worry about that crap anymore. It's like being able to take a deep breath and breathe normally after having an 18 year long asthema attack. :facepalm: I'm still pulling for all of my friends stuck behind the iron curtain.

Here's a pic of the little beast. Edit: I have no idea why it posted sideways...the original is landscape. :shrug:

Haha, I just posted in your thread about that. ;)

You are the jerk, buddy, you outgun me with 10 rounds of .45 vs my 10 rounds of 9mm :(

Enjoy your gun, brother!

Sorry man, I let my jubilation overpower my sense of sympathy for all those being robbed of their 2nd amendment rights back in California. :facepalm: It won't happen again. :p

Obviously children and cute fuzzy animals are in mortal danger because TX didn't make you wait ten days to pick up your handgun. They all walk the streets safer in California knowing that law abiding people have to wait 1/3 of a month to pick up their gun, yet anyone with felony DUI convictions can walk into a car dealership and drive one off the lot no questions asked...

I wonder what the gun store would have done if you said "OK I'll be back in ten consecutive 24 hour time periods to pick up my Glock, and not a minute earlier".

Congrats on the purchase - I carry a G26 every day (could start another rant about what it took to get a LTC...)

We can get the same gun here. You should've gotten a Gen4.

Oh and at least I get to sleep in 2 hours more than you!!! ;)

Why...I'm right handed and like the regular grip. The Gen 3 model 26 already has a dual recoil spring, no change there. I've also heard that the frames mar easier on the gen 4s. Newer doesn't always mean better. I had the option to get a gen 4 and went with a gen 3.
