    Wish I would have seen this video before I bought the XDM
    Hmmm odd I put 300rds through my xdm 9mm on a regular basis and have never had a problem yet.

  4. I don't understand why some people get so judgemental over the brand of gun one chooses.
    Myself for example, borrowed a g19 from my cc instructor to take the course. I did ask him about how a glock is for reliability and will it hold up. His answer was, it will go bang everytime. Then I went shopping. I looked at xd, m&p and glock. To be honest, gander mountain was having a sale. So, I bought a g19. I figured this will do and I already knew how it would shoot. I also like the m&p very much. I have one of those also now, but carry the glock.

    Shoot what you like and get over it.
    If your choice of gun works dirty, good for you. I keep mine clean.

    Crisco, but don't tell anybody or the Reptiloid Aliens from Alpha Draconis will be keeping you under observation. And if you mention the alien surveillance the Men in Black will be paying you a visit. >Rim shot<

    But seriously folks... In one class the instructor insisted that I use the manual trigger safety on my Steyr S9 which is non-ergonomic to the point of risking AD for me. So I borrowed a Glock of the same size from a friend. I could not get through a magazine without a malf with the Glock. Maybe an angel whizzed in the touch hole but the Glock worked for the owner and not for me. Lots of people like Glocks, and their undeniable success speaks for itself. Just make sure any gun you buy works for you.

    Does not matter what you shoot I could care less, there many good firearms the point was glocks do not need much oil or lube to run well. Many others do better while being much more lubed then a glock.
    In that point he is correct weather you like him or his style or verbiage.

    You may not Like him or his style but he is correct.
    Wrong. I'm a former Glock owner.

    Glocks are -typical- for a modern handgun.

    New Glocks come with a hard copper-based lube (reminds me of teflon) that will ultimately wear off - no need to clean it off. You can sometimes find it left over in a used one you buy. If so, you know it hasn't been fired a great deal.
    On all mine, I use a Q-tip soaked in CLP and hit 6 points just like the manual says, and lightly coat the exterior of the barrel and even less on the inside of the barrel.
    The theory is less lubricant causes less accumulation of powder residue and attraction of general dirt, etc. You can actually fire a Glock completely dry, but it will wear certain internal parts faster.
    And although I'm from the old school and always clean after shooting, I know a few guys that don't clean them but once a month or some such.
