even with practice that sounds like a pretty risky way to draw your weapon. now I am aware that in a life or death situation every second could make the difference between living and dieing, but my self personally I would practice drawing the weapon then putting my finger on the trigger.

I purchased my Glock 26 about 3 months ago, have put about 1200 rounds through it of various brands (Magtech, Winchester, etc), without any jams. The "Safe action" safety on the trigger can be rather nerve racking at first, however thus far I've seen no real problems with it. If you do have to draw while carrying, nice to not be worrying about the safety. Be sure to get a very well made thick holster, such as something from Galco. I wouldn't trust soft or thin holsters with this gun, if you fall, might fire on you. Play it safe! Here in Colorado, I worry more about being attacked by dogs than people, so it's nice to have a caliber with a little power, at least more than a .380 or .32ACP. Good blowback on this, too, very little hop considering size and length.

Simply put: Glocks are the best. Why? because they are NOT made in the USA! Without a doubt American made hand guns,i.e, quality control,dependability etc. are not what they used to be. This is not my opinion alone but the opinion of my fellow Peace Officers,friends,family and gun shop owners. If you want a good example of this go on the Kimber page,,talk about junk! The important thing to all of this is to educate yourself prior to making a purchase.

ATTENTION Ta2dave: If you want to read all the horror stories concerning Kimbers go to the Kimber page of this web site. I am a two time loser, meaning,,,I bought two top of the line Kimbers along with their top of the line price tags. Both firearms turned out to be the biggest hunks of crap I have ever owned. DO NOT BUY KIMBER!

i was gonna buy a g26...but i bought a walthers ppk/s...its smaller than a glock...i just bought ebony grips...way cooler looking than a square plastic glock...i might still buy the 26...but i bet the ppk/s is more accurate...and 9mm out of a gun this size...i bet its the same power as the ppk/s 380...the same power and not as cool looking as my james bond gun

dan, you heard the gun falls apart when you field strip it? Your getting info from where? And who? The Glock is probably one of the easiest guns to strip; one could probably take it down and reassemble with a blindfold on. Only 4 pieces, slide, barrel, recoil spring and frame. Its probably the toughest and most reliable brand around. If your serious about purchasing one, or any brand of gun, really do some research rather then listening to bogus claims. That square plastic Glock will be a glistening diamond on your side in the event you need something to work for sure.
