Got to fire a G26 the other day. Not the first time I've shot my Glock, but it was the first time I was really "paying attention", so to speak. I really don't understand what the big deal with the trigger is. Seemed fine to me. Squeeze, bang, rinse, repeat. I have smaller hands, so despite the subcompact size of the gun it fit me well. Recoil was also surprisingly manageable. I'm finding out I'm not really recoil sensitive, though.
Also shot a Kimber full-size. Love 1911s, too... .45 is a fun round, I love the "whump" feeling it gives. Both guns worked flawlessly (which means nothing as I only fired a couple mags through each, but the owner reported the same for each of his outings.)

Glad to hear it.
If you ever get a chance, try a Glock 20-10mm.
It's a great sensation, you can feel the power, but the recoil is smooth and even without any sting. Accuracy is fantastic.

I would love to fire the '20, because I am quite excited by the paper ballistics of 10mm as well as the field reports I have read. I really like the idea of a medium-size cartridge going pretty damn fast.

I am a big fan of Sigs, Beretta's and Kimber's, but I have more Glocks than any other brand.
I think Gaston Glock is a genius.

I just got back from shooting:
150 rounds thru Glock 19
150 rounds thru Glock 20
150 rounds thru Kimber TLE II
No jams with any of them. Good accuracy with all three. I just got new hi caps for the Glocks for CDNN.
Personally, the G19 is my favorite for carry and all around shooting... Its kind of hard to give a silhouette a quick Mozambique with the G20.

I love .45s. I love Glocks. SO when Glock came out with the Model 30 (which fits my hand better than the 21) I was hooked.
I still want my own 1911A1.

Certain Glocks make ME drool, too.
I've been interested in the .357 Sig Glock 31, as well as the 10mm Glock 20.

I love mine too.

I like XD 357's :neener: :what: :D :D :D .

What is the recoil of the 20 compared to the 22? How does that compare to a 1911? What kind of accuracy can you get out of the 20?

I really like my G26 too! I will probably like my G22 more once I get my upgrade parts, 9mm Barrel, and some trigger stuff, just to make it more fun!

Although I once mocked Glocks and swore that I'd never own one myself, I've grown quite attached to my pre-ban Glock 19. (Why the previous owner put it on consignment I'll never know, but I'm eternally grateful that they did!) As a matter of fact it has not only become my constant bedside companion, but is dangerously close to replacing the Smith&Wesson Model 642 as my "always" gun for around the house.

You only need to put one on the chest if its a 10mm. ;)
