GLOCK® G26 Subcompact Pistol
Love My Glocks
We are a family with several Glocks (Husband, Brother, Sister in-law, Nieces and Nephews). We all started with .40 in diferent frame sizes. Recently my youngest daughter 24yo had also expressed an interest. After trying several calibers and manufacturers she also fell back to the 9mm Glock 26. This small/compact frame was a perfect fit for her. Her aim was dead on with it, it wasn't too powerful - so that it remained fun, and the ammunition costs are reasonable. Glocks are glocks. Always ready, always reliable, with point and shoot ease.

I am a female who has fired many weapons and I have to say by far this is my favorite. Its light weight and easy to handle. Conseals nicely as well. I never go anywhere without it. If you are looking for an overall great pistol this is the one. You will not be disappointed

I purchased this Glock 26 as a companion backup/CCW firearm to my Glock 17. I took it new from the box at the range and shot a perfect 50 out of 50 on the State qualification course from 35-1 yard distances. I put a Pierce magazine grip extension on my carry mag to give me a place for my little finger and a plus 2 extension on my second mag. It's small enough to conceal easily, yet handles well. This is the one all of my students come back to when trying different pistols, it's small enough for people with small hands and with the grip extension, it's big enough for larger hands. I have shot thousands of rounds out of it without any malfunctions. I carry a firearm every day, in every imaginable situation. I have carried other name brand firearms, but when my life is at stake, I carry a Glock 17 and 26.

Well Built Compact Pistol
My friend has this gun, and he let me fire around 50 rounds out of it the other day. It is well built, and easy to use, and is safe in your hand. 9 mm feels powerful with this compact weapon, but still very managable and easy to sight. The only downside in my mind is that the handle is so short for my big hands, the one finger was pinched between the end of the handle and the magazine, and the other just rested under the gun. I know that is par for the course with a compact pistol, I just prefer a full size pistol. It also is expensive in my book, but you get what you pay for in terms of quality.
