    I am among the cheapest cheapskates who ever skated cheaply. Two or three months ago I decided that I would get myself a G26 in nice condition, and that I wouldn't pay more than $350 for it. I may or may not have missed out on a couple (literally asleep at the switch) during the hunt. Finally I found a REALLY nice one, with the box and spare mag and so forth. It had a laser sight I didn't want, but I figured that my friend at the LGS would, so I bid all the way up to $376 and won the pistol. Since my friend has given me a number of nice deals, I let him have the laser sight in exchange for two G19 magazines that will be fun to shoot the 26 with.

    I was busy shooting other guns this weekend, but I did empty a 10-round magazine from the 26 at 15 yards and got a pretty decent (for me) group. When I got it home and cleaned it carefully, I was pleased to find that there is no discernible wear on the frame rails. It feels good in my hand. I will shoot it a bunch more next time, and will probably end up carrying it OWB some next fall and winter.

    Does anyone have a favorite OWB holster for these? Also, is there a little plastic adapter to make the G19 magazines fit prettier?

    I think the OWB holster I use for my Glocks is a Galco Matrix, though the Glock holster is actually a really nice, cheap, owb holster.

    XGrip makes a sleeve for your 15 round mags to fill in the gap. I also have really liked the Magpul 12 round mags in my G26, they have a little better profile than Pearce or OEM +2 Grips, have been completely reliable and cost like $15, less if its on sale.

    Also congrats on the little Glock. Love mine for hot weather carry.

    I like my 43 a lot, but realized the 26 wouldn't be much more difficult to carry.

    The more pistols the better!
