Good to hear about the 26. This is honestly what I thought to. I shot the .40G27, then the .45XDM and thought the .45 was much easier to shoot.

The PF-9 Is a single stack design which makes it dead reliable (don't get me wrong, the glock mags are proven too) and easier to load AND easier to carry around a spare mag in my pocket instead of a mag that is twice as thick. Compare the G26 to the PF-9 and you'll see they are in entirely different classes.

The trigger pull is nasty long but very consistent. I can literally hold it staged and know exactly when it's going to break.

I also love the Kel-Tec customer service and the fact it's a US made product. There is no other gun like it on the market. Unless you're wearing a speedo, you can conceal it. It even has a rail where you can attach a laser for quick acquisition.
HMMMM, I'm going to have to try this thing out.

BTW here is a little comparison of the G26 and G27... I love this guy BTW:



Looks like G26 is making a run for my first handgun purchase... G19 is great but maybe too big for CC at this point... Might as well get a baby gun AND a full size XDM later.


..and will do on the M&P shield.

See now that I know that the Shield is amost identical in size to the LC9, and I shot the LC9 and thought it was TOO small for me, I'm gonna skip that one...

It was the size width wise, I have big hands and with the LC9 my index finger was pulling the trigger with the first pad on my finger, which I can't stand.

^ Is the 10mm really that big of difference than the 9mm? Also, what is the availability of the 10mm and the price compared to 9mm.


Got another question for you Florida guys... I'm going to LA soon and want to go shooting with a friend. Is there anyway I can take my handgun to Cali without filling out any BS paper work? I'm sure this is in the statutes, but a quick answer would be nice

10mm > 9/40/45. It is also pricier, less available too. 10mm will have performance on par with 41magnum. If you can handle the 10mm in the g29....go for it.

I was sorta joking when I said that. The 10mm is an absolute beast, more powerful than any of the other 3 cartridges mentioned. And yes, there is more recoil. However, I love my buddies G29; it's a phenomenal gun and I shoot it really well. Ammo isnt cheap and the good stuff (the true 10mm ammo made by doubletap, etc.) can be tough to come by. Still, it's an amazing gun...but probably not at all what you want or need

As for the other question, I can say with like 75 percent surety that taking your handgun there is an absolute no-no. I'm not postive on it, but california is one of the absolute worst states that way. I'm pretty sure you cant do it without filing paperwork and registering it, if you can do it at all.

Ya maybe a 10mm in my future but not now.

As for the Cali thing... Dammit, that sucks. My friend in LA said it took him SOOOO long just to get a Rem 870! Liberal bastards

Yeah, but hell. Give me a few weeks and I'll be back to the bay area with my arsenal and new NFA toys. If you want to meet up then and have a fun afternoon of blasting, let me know.

Sounds awesome man, still need to dial in my 10/22 scope. Where do u shoot in Tampa? I usually go to shooting sports on dale Mabry just because it's close to me-- I live in citrus park. $14 for shotgun, $10.95 for rimfire/pistol range.

Ha truth be told, I haven't really found a good place to shoot down in the bay area; I normally shoot like crazy up near Jax.

That being said, I have been to shoot straight and that's ok. No shotguns though...ill have to continue to do some digging around and find a good spot.

My Ride: My wife
I joined Family Firearms in Valrico. It's a decent 9 lane, 20y indoor range that has good sound proofing and filtration, and it's a constant 70 degrees.

They are currently working on their accessible lane, which will also be set up to allow you to draw from a holster.

They also have incredible prices on firearms if you are paying cash. They routinely beat Bud's prices.

I am continually unimpressed with what passes as acceptable LTC/CCW/PTC training. I always said that if I ever did start training civilians and doing PTC, my course would be a 2 day course with talks by lawyers, a county/district attorney, and lots of range time.

That's nice that it's always at 70 degrees, I was sweating balls at the range on Sunday. Quite the drive though.

If you Florida guys see a G26 for sale let me know.

I'll keep an eye open on Arfcom. That's how I acquired my G19 and my sig yesterday.

Glock 27....second choice is Glock 26. Most people get a gun that is too big for carry the first time. Do it right with a Glock 27. Get night sights.

Mine was just give my your DD214...you have been in the military. Actually getting hunters education takes longer than getting your CCW. Granted, I have over 20 years experience with weapons.

My wife got her CCW class done in a few hours, she could not even rack the slide back on her Glock 26, had to get it done with a Walther P22. I would still rather have more honest people having weapons.....if they know safety....than people who do not have a weapon.

Pretty cool.

You can also teach them to hold on to the slide and PUSH the rest of the gun away from them. I've never had a single chick I went shooting with have trouble after that.
