    You can look the video up on YouTube. Funny Stuff... Kinda.

A responsible owner would have sent the gun to Glock so they could examine it rather than sell the gun to someone else. If there was indeed a problem with the gun like you say then the next person that acquires it may not be so lucky.
    The only issue I have had with any model Glock was right in the store. The rear sight fell off. I had bought this via Davidsonís on line. It was shipped to the store where I completed the paper work and then checked it out. Davidsonís, as their stated policy, sent a new one the next day. I would be very interested in any documented case of a Glock going off from a drop, or any other documented case of a modern firearm discharging from a drop. Not that it cannot happen, as with any man made device it may fail.

    It was a DEA agent, and shortly after he SAFTEY CHECKED the weapon and then proceeded to tell everybody it was unloaded and how he was the only person in the room professional enough to handle that gun, he shot himself. It didn't go off. He thought it was clear, pointed it at his foot and pulled the trigger. Sorry, there's no safety in the world that'll prevent that.

    Are you talking about the Black guy with the dreadlocks in the classroom full of children? I see. I've been proven wrong. Glocks do in fact discharge without the trigger being squeezed.

    I saw the video and know what you're talking about. The gun is not to blame. The agent put a magazine in the gun that had a round in it. When he opened it the chamber was empty. He asked the Principal of the school to check the gun. A man who didn't know one end of a gun from the other. So when he let the slide go forward he loaded a round. The rest is history.

    Every Glock owner will tell you the plastic sights suck big time. A Glock official told me one time that the reason they put those stupid and cheap sights on their firearms had something to do with some importation law. *shrugs* I didn't really follow his point when he said it and didn't care that much to continue to ask questions. Point being... whatever the price of the Glock you are buying is, add about $100 to put new sights on.

    Every LEO in the world will tell you that the moment you try to rack the slide one handed (against pocket, against heel of boot, etc.) that plastic sight will bust right off. Before a big debate ensues as to why one would rack their firearm with one hand, it is a drill performed by LEO's in case one of their arms becomes disabled and they need to rack their slide. I prefer doing this drill in a kneeling position against the heel of the boot to avoid pointing down my leg with the pocket technique.
