Are there any extended basepads for Glock 26 that is Bug division legal?

I understand the first half or so of your post, but not the rest.

Possibly, I'm not alone as I've zero clue what you mean by 'is Bug division legal'?

Please, elaborate.

Thanks!

I don't think the Glock 26 is within the size parameters for the IDPA BUG division even in it's stock form. I'd be delighted to be proven wrong on this.

Abraham - Given that this post is in the competitive shooting forum, I'm assuming he is asking about legality for the BUG division of IDPA.

Soccerdad1995,

Thanks!

IDPA makes the post understandable without it, I was completely baffled.

Hey, what can I say, I'm old and slow...physically too.

I'm just assuming it's IDPA. There are other organizations, but I'm not sure if any of them has a division called BUG (in IDPA that stands for Back Up Gun).

It's been quite some time since I shot IDPA and back up guns weren't something I recall ever being part of it.

But then, I don't remember what I had for dinner last night, so there's that...

Not in the know on IDPA anymore as we dropped then here dur to stupid rules changed often, our matches are so much better now.
I will share one with you we have an IDPA box at our club and my old G2 Glock 19 with non drop free mags fits! in it. Bug class. My Colt officers also was at 1 time legal in BUG. I love multiple gun stages. IDPA went so far off what it was made for it became a joke and dropped by many clubs, we use the basic format just not the stupid rules.

IDPA used to be a range Nazi heaven. We called it.

We only loaded 5 rounds as to be fair to all. We still go with 5 here when we shoot them.

I quit IDPA when it became an hour wait between shooting with few RO's.

No one's fault, but I just didn't have the patience to wait...
