Now I'm interested in the sig 365 so I don't know what I'm gonna choose.


AIM has Leo trade in G27’s for cheap and unlike a p365 it won’t potentially break on you

Guess I gotta go find a 26 with NS on Black Friday on sale somewhere...and mags...and 9mm ammo...and holster(s). Big Grin


My first Glock was going to be a 26, but after a little bit of research and some hands-on shopping, I realized that for the nominal increase in size, getting the pinky-finger on the grip and the five additional rounds of magazine capacity, I wound up with the 19.

Wound up going with the 26. Don't have it just yet, but put in my order. The capacity part, unfortunately, doesn't matter here as we are limited to 10 rounds. I'll probably try some Pearce extensions to see if I like it even better than the curled pinky. I'm pretty pumped, already bought a bunch of 9mm and 3 mags on black friday, looking at holsters, going to eventually head over to that customize your Glock thread Big Grin

After all these years, I finally picked up a Glock. I picked up a Blue Label 19 gen 5. I have to get used to it now. I put 100 rounds through it and hit low left.

A little practice will cure that.

Your going to like it a lot.

Typical new Glock shooter syndrome. Give it 500rds and dry fire practice and you'll be right as rain, centered up on target.

It might seem counter-intuitive, but get more finger on the tigger, even up to the knuckle and off the pad if you can.

Since the start of this thread I have bought and traded off a few different model Glocks. For some odd reason the other day it pops into my head I have a Gen 2 G17 slide sitting in a box some place. I found it and now will be buying a used complete Gen 2 frame. The non-finger grip old school Glocks are cool.

I have a 2 Gen 2 17s, a Gen 2 19, and a Gen 2.5 G26 (it has finger grooves but they are smooth).
I've always been a Gen 2 purist after buying and selling Gen 3s and Gen 4s.

BUT, if you like no fingers grooves and 9mm, the Glock 45 might be for you.. Big Grin
Very happy with mine.

Picked up my latest Glock goodness this past Saturday as part of the Black Friday weekend buying bonanza. Fortunately I did not have to wait in a long line, fight anyone for it, or have them sell out before I could get mine, as my latest GSSF coupon made buying the Blue Label Gen5 G26 a breeze and even more affordable. I had a G26 back a few years ago and sold it, but so far I'm liking this one much better.

Mine is the fixed sight model, with this one being made in the USA by the folks in Smyrna, GA. Really liking the no finger groves like its G17 and G19 Gen5 brethren it is now keeping company with and the same great trigger pull too that is consistently breaking at right around 4.75 lbs. Fit and finish is every bit the equal of the Austrian Gen5s as it should be. If there was no country stamp, you would not be able to tell the difference. Them Georgia folk with those new-fangled Austrian machines and materials make some good "iron". Cool

Looking forward to getting it to the range this weekend and I already have some Truglo TFX sights on the way for it as well as some Glock 12 round extended mags I picked up during the Midway USA Glock mag sale with free shipping. If all goes well as I expect it will, this will be replacing my 9mm Shield as my go-to 9mm carry piece. Nothing but good things to say about the Shield, just a transition to more consistency for me since my other frequently carried conceal gun is a G42 (also made in the USA) that has been excellent in fit and function, and an accurate, reliable companion. Glock on!

Was thinking about the clear mags (ECT I think?), but wasn't sure how good they would be.

Thanks and congrats on yours being on the way. My previous was a Gen3. Don't get me wrong, it shot accurately and was 100% reliable, but there are quite a few things about the Gen5 that I like better and I would imagine most would agree. I much prefer the texture of the grip, the lack of finger grooves, the ambi slide catch release, the mag release, the better trigger action and break, and the finish. I still have the first Glock I ever bought, a Gen2 G19 that is about 22 years old and is still a great pistol that has never had a single stoppage or issue of any kind. I feel Glock just took their pistols to the next level of refinement with all the improvements in the Gen5 and nothing personal against SIG but I think the US military would have done much better selecting the Gen5 Glock instead of the P320.

As for the ECT mags, I have both 7 round and 9 round versions for my G42 and they have been reliable with no issues. I still prefer the factory Glock mags in general though, especially when you can get them on sale like we did recently.

Thanks and congrats, as well. Sounds like if I weren't in CA with a dumbass roster the Gen 5 would be relly nice. Only way to get Gen 4 or 5 in CA is someone in state to sell it to you private party (however they may have come to legally own one). The Gen 5s I've seen people selling are usually around $1k. Gen 4 goes for around $$750. That's why I went Gen 3, they are on roster and can be had for normal prices and bought anywhere. I'll See if after shooting it a bit if I want to upgrade the trigger, get ext mag release and slide lock. First thing I'll look into is the grip, never had a factory grip I was happy with. Sounds like I, also, should check out the ECT mags eventually. Will have 5 factory ones to start with, so probably good for awhile.

The only thing I added to my Gen3 G26 was a rubber grip sleeve. It was a good pistol and I can certainly understand the CA limitations you are dealing with so considering the availability and price differences, I don't blame you going with the Gen3. Actually I just double checked and the clear aftermarket mags are ETS mags not ECT...been a long day and tired but sounded close enough at the time until I really started to think about it. lol

Magpul makes Glock mags as well so that would also be an option. I do not have any experience with them yet but others here have mentioned positive experience with them.

I did shoot a Glock today. A full size 9mm. Don't know the number. I did like it.

Forgot to mention that I did add Pearce grip extensions to a couple of the magazines I had for my Gen3 G26. They were the plus capacity variety but the +0 extensions will at least give the benefit of the extra grip real estate if not the added capacity for you in CA. The G26 is definitely comfortable and controllable with just the standard mags and pinky curled under, even one-handed and my hands lean a little more towards the smaller side. But the grip extensions really do make it even better if even just as a spare mag if the standard mag provides maximum concealment as needed for a given carry method.

I was fortunate to come across those Glock 12 rounders with the factory extensions for the new Gen5 during the Midway USA sale which I shared in the Black Friday deals thread.
