GUN After much debate, think my new CCW piece will be a Glock 26.

    I held one at a local gun store today and really thought the size was perfect for CCW. Going to hit the gun show at the end of Feb, see if I can find a good deal on one. If I go used, is there anything I should look for / avoid? Never owned a Glock before.

    If your carry weapon caliber starts with anything less than 4, you are wrong.

    There's a reason there are ten rounds in a magazine. You may have to pull the trigger more than once to stop an assailant, but a 9mm is more than enough to stop an attack.

    I guess with the right holster, there's no need for a pocket sized gun :dunno:

    My CCW gun carries 13+1. It's backup mag is 16. The fact that I can carry 30 rounds in a single jean pocket says it all for me.

    I'll take lots of good 9mm with manageable recoil over a few rounds of slightly more powerful and harder to control .40 or .45

    They are kinda chunky man depending on what you wear when you carry.

    i always liked single stacks for the thinness.

    Not really bro, I've seen your pic. You're a big fatty mcfat. That's why I called you it.

    And it wasn't a sippy cup, it was a princess water bottle. Get it right, fatty, and referring to my own posts isn't a "diss" because I wouldn't have posted it in the first place if I was embarrassed. :mamoru:

    Nor am I abusing scrips considering I don't even take as much as I'm prescribed.

    Dumbass :mamoru:

    I carry a 9mm because I am a better shot with it. By better shot I mean that I am able to reliably place rapid follow up shots with decent accuracy, which is something I have not yet mastered with larger caliber hand guns.

    I really like my G26... Unfotunately, I've gained like 15lbs this winter, and it is a little thick for my fat arse now...
