I know it's blasphemy to some of ya'll but I just had to tell it! I just got done taking the handgun carry class today. Out of all the guns there only 3 had no jams or problems. 1 S&W M&P, 1 S&W M&P compact, and 1 little revolver that I think was a Taurus. A S&W Sigma jammed once, a Ruger jammed 3 times, and I'm not sure about the rest but the real prize was the only Glock in the class. The Glock 19 Gen3 had quit a few feeding problems and got a round jammed in it so bad the guy that owned it had to stop shooting and take the gun to the shop on the hill to get it cleared. He came back about 20 minutes later and it jammed again after a couple rounds. He finally finished with it but it didn't make it easy for him. Now what was that ever Glock fan keep preaching? OH YEAH "Glocks are the only reliable semi-auto made anything else and your going to have issues" HAHA! NOT TODAY! boys NOT TODAY! HAHA! (Stirring of the pot now over!) \:\)

You can screw up an anvil with the right methods... Outside of someone who gets free ammo, I bet I've put as many rounds thru Glocks as about any old country redneck, never had a mis-feed.. Now, your average once a year shooter - who's limp wristing his Glock as he cycles it, can very easily cause it to jamb.. A properly maintained G1,2,3 or a 4 with about 2 minutes worth of mods will cycle with any weapon, in the hands of a shooter..

Exactly what I was thinking Kimber45. Limp wristing a Glock is about all Ive seen that will make one misfeed. Ive fired about every kind of factory ammo through mine and no FTFs. Now hand loading a little OAL too long is another story! LOL ;\)

Very likely limp-wristing or grip is low on the frame causing some of the recoil energy (needed for positive extraction and ejection) to convert into muzzle flip which can cause FTE or stove-pipes.

I'd take my Glocks to any gun fight ;\)

I knew before I posted this it would have to be "operator error" No way a Glock could be at fault! HAHA! The class instructor couldn't get the thing to do any better and I'm pretty sure she knew how a handgun functions. The gun didn't have any FTE or stove-pipes it was a loading and chamber issue of some sort. I just couldn't help myself! I had to point out a turd Glock just to watch you Glock guys run to its rescue! HAHA

The guy at the range where I took my carry class last Saturday told me "unless they mess up we don't clean 'em"....So, my guess is all of those guns had been cleaned alot except the Glock...just my opinion

Everyone brought their own gun so I would assume everyone cleaned and cared for their own! I want to hear just 1 Glock fan admit that a Glock is no different than any other gun! They can and will malfunction! ADMIT IT! HAHA!

Looks to me like you would be impossible to convince anyway, so why dispute your claim.
I dislike benelli shotguns, I've saw many, many fail to function properly. So what? I did'nt pay for'em, and apparently a lot of people really like them. More power to'em.
I love Brownings. I think there performance is a notch above the rest. Some people will argue that point.....Who cares. Unless there paying for me to shoot it. Why worry? It involves me none at all. How boring would this world be if everyone had the same opinion?
I had a Ruger P89. No failures ever. Now have a Glock 20. Zero failures. I bought it, you did'nt, why worry about it?

I don't own a Glock but the majority of jamming issues are from improper cleaning. My Beretta 22lr pistol won't jam, but you have to clean it about 15 clips in. Just a quick swipe to clean out a bit of powder. My Bersa 40 has never jammed. Probably will jinx myself but I've fired over 150 rounds with 0 problems.

I'm not really interested in what a Glock did that you saw some guy you don't know have a problem with, no offense intended.

I'm interested in how my Glocks function, 1000s of rounds no malfunctions of any kind. Now when my 10 year old shoots it, it will have problems (not enough wrist strength).

Mine may screw up tomorrow, who knows? At this point though, it's what I have the most faith in.

I had my glock 21 (45acp) malfunction during a week long high intensity traing course. It was so dirty the slides travel was impaired. I also tried to limp-wrist it because I had heard it would make them malfunction. It did malfunction with limp-wristing.
Any brand gun can be made to malfunction. Glock is no exception. But its the brand I trust my life too everyday.

rukiddin?, ratsnakeboogy, Ya'll are Captain Buzz kills! I was just poking a little fun at the Glock guys and ya'll had to get all butt hurt about it! No fun at all! I don't own a Glock today but you never know about tomorrow. I have nothing against the guns just like to poke fun at most of their brand blind owners. I just get tired of all the Glock guys talking trash about every other brand about like the Mathews bow guys do with archery stuff!

PLUS! I still haven't heard a Glock guy say they can and will malfunction! Not that they only do when they are dirty or not cared for or what ever other excuse ya'll want to throw out! I just don't think a die hard Glock guy can swallow enough of their pride to admit it! HAHA

Any gun can misfire, just as any automobile can leave you on the side of the road but with Glock, the test of time, among other torture testing etc. makes it the most reliable, IMHO

Here's a few misfires for ya ;\)

Semi-autos are only as reliable as the skilled hands wielding them. With the number of relative novices out there gobbling up guns & permits lately, I can't help but think such a large FTE jams may have been caused by weak grips. Before I was really proficient with mine, it would stovepipe like that about once every 100 rounds or so. I found myself getting lazy and complacent, and it would nearly always be after I "jelly-armed" a shot. Lock your dominant arm and grasp the gun tightly, you'll be hard pressed to find one that actually "fails" to eject. The failure is nearly always on the shooter with a semi auto.

So, exactly what is your point? It seems to me you are just trying to find someone to argue with. I'm a certified Glock amorer, a certified Glock Instructor, and a certified law enforcement officer with 24 Years of experience. For seventeen years the agency I work for has carried Glock, Model 22 handguns. There is a lot of reasons we chose to go with Glock as the weapon of choice for our agency. I can tell you we chose them for their reliability and their durability. During all of my years handling a Glock and instructing others, I have seen the same problems you spoke of in your original post but every single time I saw those problems I was able to directly relate the problem to some type of shooter error. Not a single problem or malfunction was due to a problem with the gun. Yes, there were many malfunctions during those years on the range, but none were due to any problem with the Glock pistol. Even though you obviously don't
like Glocks, you will not change other people's minds going about the way you
have chosen. So, again I ask you, what is your point? You've made a point but I seriously doubt it was the point you intended to make!

I've never had a Glock have any type of problem... other than the magazine running out of ammo.

I don't care for the fill or the looks of them but when it's me or the bad guy, it's what I want to have in my hand. Waiting on a Glock 19 to come in now.

I'm personally not a Glock fan but and I say but they are well made guns . The owner may not clean the gun properly or the ammo could be old so to the defense of glock owners a look at the weapon needs to happen . The best of guns can fail if not properly taken care of . My $.02 !

HHMMM! I see the Glock crowd gets butt hurt faster than the Mathews bow crowd! Would have never expected that one! I had no point to make with the first post. I was just joking around and poking a little fun at the die hard Glock guys but I guess ya'll are too sensitive about your toys to see that. I don't want to hurt ya'lls little feelings so here is a new statement for you. " Glocks are the best weapon made! They will stop everything from a June bug to a Freight train with one shot and never fail or have a malfunction!

Loose wrist, oil, or ammo..... In that order. Didn't bother to read the other replies so these could have already been listed. Been using a Glock for 21 yrs and These are the things I have noticed that will cause Glocks to not feed properly.

The only auto handguns I have owned that were 100% reliable with a ton of rounds run through them, were my Sig 220s. My Glock 17 would occasionally jam, more than any auto pistol I have ever owned. My 1st Kimber Custom 2 had some jams in its break in period, but was 100% after it was broken in. My current Kimber is 100% so far. My XD 40 had 1 FTF in its break in period. My M&P is 100% so far, but I've only put 200 rounds or so through it. Personally I have no use for a Glock. The grip angle does not work for me, and it shoots high for me when point shooting. Most people shoot their Glocks at the range, slow fired and using sights, and they think that their Glocks shoot just fine for them, mine did when I use sights. But drawing from leather and instinctively point shooting one, it shoots about a foot high @ 10 yards for me. If you haven't tried to shoot your Glock without aiming it, you may find a chink in your Glock armor

Never had a glock issue. I can say this any gun will not cycle properly if is not maintained properly.

Wow, the only person getting worked up in this thread is you, and you are the one that started the thread. You seriously may want to relax before you have an aneurysm.

This.

And I'm willing to bet this story was created just to make this thread in an attempt to start something. Or at the very least he rushed home giggling because he had internet forum fodder.

A properly maintained G1,2,3 or a 4 with about 2 minutes worth of mods will cycle with any weapon, in the hands of a shooter..



Great post!!!!!

This thread was obviously started to disparage and dissuade folks away from the noted manufacturer. Hasn't quite worked out. Similarly, Obama's tactics have done more to put money in the coffers of gun manufacturers than the NRA ever could.

I admit it was a conspiracy against Glock! HAHA You Glock guys are nuts! It happened and I just poked a little fun at them and the Glock owners came running to the rescue just like I knew they would! Just look I got 6 pages of replies over 1 gun failure! I don't care what anyone shoots. My buddy shoots a Glock and it seems fine with only the occasional jam. But then again I have never seen a crowd crow about how their brand is the ONLY brand worth looking at like the Glock crowd does. Thats what makes their failures funny. I might own a Glock one day but it will be when they make a reliable handgun!

Actually, I note a number of non-Glock owners....such as myself. I've seen every brand of semi-automatic FTE. Numerous people have logically explained it, and are calling you out for being full of crap...not rabidly defending Glock.

rukiddin?, ratsnakeboogy, Ya'll are Captain Buzz kills! I was just poking a little fun at the Glock guys and ya'll had to get all butt hurt about it! No fun at all! I don't own a Glock today but you never know about tomorrow. I have nothing against the guns just like to poke fun at most of their brand blind owners. I just get tired of all the Glock guys talking trash about every other brand about like the Mathews bow guys do with archery stuff!

PLUS! I still haven't heard a Glock guy say they can and will malfunction! Not that they only do when they are dirty or not cared for or what ever other excuse ya'll want to throw out! I just don't think a die hard Glock guy can swallow enough of their pride to admit it! HAHA


So, exactly what is your point? It seems to me you are just trying to find someone to argue with. I'm a certified Glock amorer, a certified Glock Instructor, and a certified law enforcement officer with 24 Years of experience. For seventeen years the agency I work for has carried Glock, Model 22 handguns. There is a lot of reasons we chose to go with Glock as the weapon of choice for our agency. I can tell you we chose them for their reliability and their durability. During all of my years handling a Glock and instructing others, I have seen the same problems you spoke of in your original post but every single time I saw those problems I was able to directly relate the problem to some type of shooter error. Not a single problem or malfunction was due to a problem with the gun. Yes, there were many malfunctions during those years on the range, but none were due to any problem with the Glock pistol. Even though you obviously don't
like Glocks, you will not change other people's minds going about the way you
have chosen. So, again I ask you, what is your point? You've made a point but I seriously doubt it was the point you intended to make!


I gotta go with BARhunter on this one. My experience mirrors his except that I only have 22 years experience. I have been fortunate lately to shoot with some better shooters that me and a lot of them shoot the M&P. I got to shoot one and LOVED it. Very natural point of aim for me. Funny thing is last class I went to (not weekend wannabes but professional's that shoot for a living) about a quarter of the class shot Glocks, a quarter M&P's and and the rest was a large unit that shot Sig 226's. I don't remember anyone having anything other than ammo related malfunctions in two weeks. Now, if I had my druthers, I'd carry my Sig 220. I carried it the entire time I was full time SWAT. Looked up the number one time and it was made in 1974. Says BROWNING Morgan Utah on one side of the slide and Sig Sauer made in W. Germany on the other. That was before Sig started importing them in the U.S. That is one of two guns that I truly love and don't intend to leave to anyone...I want them buried with me! What's my point? Heck I forgot I rambled so much. I guess the only point was your head Hardwood. By the way you never told us how you did in the class with your Hi Point!
