    Found out awhile ago a friend of mine was wanting to sell his Glock 26. He use to carry it at work and has his CCW. I took a look at it and it looks perfect. He's only taken it to the range once but he never cleaned it after he did. lol

    Paid $380. It's got a spare magazine, grip extension on one magazine, and some type of holster (Going to call him to see if he included it all b/c he said he had an ankle holster but this just looks like a cheap wasitband one). No night sights so I'm going to save to get those. Hope to get it to the range this week to see how it fires.

    Have fun when the barrel stovepipes in your hand and you have to get fingers reattached.

    Never heard of a barrel actually ripping through the frame of the gun.

    Perhaps you pulled that directly out of your ass?

    whoever makes the one that fits you best. When it comes to holsters, you really need to go to a shop and try different ones because everyone is different. I use a Don Hume 715 clipon iwb when I need to run out the door or wearing sweats. I also use Tucker's Answer and a C-Tac but not everyone likes them.

    There are only a couple brands I stay far away from. One is of course, Fobus. and the other is Uncle Mike's. (I know, lot of you use UM and like them but I prefer a custom fitted holster over universal fit in that less abrasion is done to the gun and better fit means less movement)

    Thanks for the info

    I looked at some Blade-tech online and they look pretty nice. Also looked to see what wilson had.

    Guess I'll keep my eyes out locally and see when the next gun show is at to look there also. I haven't seen many IWB holsters at the gun stores here.

    Ditto on the Don Hume H715, I have one for all of my Glocks and they are the shit. You can't beat them for the money, and the clip is strong as hell.

    Check them out at www.gunnersalley.com they are cheaper than the Don Hume webesite, and their shipping is less too.

    the 9mm's chambers have more support than the .40 chambers.

    What's this talk about having a supported chamber or not having it?

    it is hypothesized that glock kBs are due to not enough support of the cartridge in the chamber. I think i read somewhere that it was not true and that the bulge in the casing did not always correlate with the unsupported area of the chamber. you can make your own conclusions...

    Due to the fact that some of the bullet casing is not supported by the barrel chamber at the top of the feed ramp, Glocks in .40 caliber are more prone than some other brands of .40 pistol to chamber rupture when firing ammunition that is loaded outside the safety specs for .40 S&W caliber.

    This chamber rupture or ka-BOOM as its called is possible with any gun and has happened with just about all of them. They usually come from people who use crappy ammo or load their own stuff without double checking their work, but of course some bad loads have come from factory ammo. It's a risk you take shooting.

    In short, don't use a tool with more juice beyond what it's manufacturer rates it for, and if you're going to, know your gun and what could happen.

    I personally plan to continue shooting my 9mm and .40 Glocks for years. :wavey:

    another reason some .40 Glocks are more prone to kB is because of leading in the barrel, or shooting heavy loads that may have some bullet setback due to multible chamberings of the same round, further increasing the already high chamber pressures thus causing a kB.

    Glocks are a great starter gun, the best example of KISS I have seen.

    The trigger is a little mushy but that can be improved.

    $380.00 Thats a great deal. I used to be a glock hater myself. Now days I carry a Glock 21 ( full sized .45cal) at work, and love it. Never had a problem with any except the mags. Even then I've never seen a failure to fire or a fail to feed. Don't worry too much about the gun not being cleaned for a while, some of the guys I work with probably haven't cleant theirs in years. Of course I'm not recommending that you make a habit of not cleaning your gun. By the way, just about anyone who makes holsters makes an IWB for the G26. Happy Shooting!:sadwavey:

    You can buy aftermarket Glock barrels w/ a supported chamber. Personally I wouldn't worry about it. If it was a real problem, Glock would be out of business.

    I would advise you not to use unjacketed lead bulets in your Glocks or H&K's. Polygonal rifling doesn't like lead.
