I took my G26 to the range for the first time today, and I have to say that I fell in love with the gun. I have owned many guns through the years but never a Glock. Nor fired one for that matter. This one lived up to EVERYTHING I have heard about Glocks. I was worried about the factory mag plates, but it wasn't too bad. I thought that with having my pinky under the mag would take some time getting use too, but it felt good and I could still shot just as straight. I did end up buying an extended plate after I was done at the range. The gun was so good I let my 10 year old shot for the first time in his life. He looked like a true pro for his first time, and that says a lot to me about the design of the Glock. I have to say Glock lived up to thier reputation and I LOVE THIS GUN!!!!
