    It was worth a try.

    I certainly would, if there was a problem. Aside from one defective Glock 36 magazine, all 6 of my Glocks have been flawless. I bought the 36 used; one of the magazines would cause a failure to feed, always on the 3rd round. I replaced the magazine with a new one. Threw the old one in the trash. Problem solved.

    Out of 6 Gen 3 Glocks (a 17, 2ea. 19's, a 26, and a 30 new in the box, the used 36), a total of 19 Glock magazines, and probably to 10,000 rounds fired between them, I had exactly one easily fixed issue - the defective Glock 36 magazine. I regret selling the G36 after I bought the XDs. Big mistake. Huge.

    I completely agree with you; the Glock is as simple as it gets. How many other guns do you know that require one punch to disassemble the entire gun? The reason for the LE Armorer course is more of a liability one. This way Glock knows these armorers were in deed trained by Glock. In addition, the training also includes tips and techniques that one wouldn't normally find elsewhere about what to look for as far as excessive wear, or, like in the case of 2005, it's a means to communicate to get things fixed.

    It's a mechanical piece of equipment... like all mechanical equipment, it's subject to wear and tear.

    Two types of people I can't stand concerning Glocks... the one that says "Works every time"... not true, just like all equipment, it needs to be taken care of appropriately. This is why we clean our weapons regardless of the marque and we inspect them for wear, regardless of the marque. Glocks can and have broken down when not serviced and they have come off the line with defects, but Glock will take care of them. Their customer service is outstanding. Personally, with the two I have owned I have never had a failure, but I also inspect it twice a year for wear, more than what is recommended. The other type is the one that mocks Glock users. It's a gun... pure and simple. There is no magic behind it. It's just a light weight, very simply made, easy to use gun. It breaks down more simply than any other I've torn apart and it is extremely reliable. I have seen them fire in conditions where other marques have failed, but none the less it's just a gun. Why mock the user, unless he's the first type that I mentioned?

    It was a rather tongue in cheek statement.
    I agree with coming forward with issues with guns.
    If there is a problem it needs to be addressed and quickly.
    I love my Rugers, but when my SR9c was experiencing light strikes I found a slew of answers and solved the problem instantly by removing the striker, bathing it in cleaner, LIGHTLY oiling it and reassembling the gun.

    Kramer,

    Sarcasm is sometimes hard to discern in print. My feelings in my post remain, just not directed at you. :)

    Also, excellent point in reminding people to tell others about the problems they have with their equipment. Chances are someone out there has had a similar experience and may be able to help. It's better than sitting around with a non-working item.
