I had a question and it is not a slam to any other guns out there:

Are Glock owners the only ones that believe their guns can take this abuse?

I only see Glocks in these "tests" and I'm not saying they're practical but I've never seen an XD or 1911 test.

Yeah MGH, I keep hearing that. I have it on my list of things to do, buy an entry level 1911 and put it through some real world tests.

The problem is, in my case, there is no way in hell I would subject my beautiful 1911's to running 1,000 rounds through it in under 20 minutes just to say I did.

With a Glock, its a cheap pistol, so if you destroy one, you aren't out a grand, or more.

As for the XD, I don't know. I never looked to see if anyone did a torture test on one.

I just think that by the time you reach a point in life where you get a 1911, you have lost all interest in trying to "prove" to a bunch of fools you don't know how great it is.

Those that know, know they love it - and in that, we believers are fine without throwing them out of airplanes and running 1000 rounds through them.

I just thought everyone would like to see it. Then know for a fact that glocks are the best evea. I am going to trade my Kimber for 2 of them now.

I have seen the light and I will never go back to the old crusty out dated 1911. We should put it in the grave and let it die a peaceful death.


To admit it I didn't watch the entire movies. I had to ff to the end of each one....

I have others and will not subject them to test like that. Abuse wise, all guns can take some abuse and neglect - would I subject mine to that - NO! The only neglect, is not getting to the range - that is neglect!

I agree -I would not subject any weapon - to that stress test, nor on my finger(s).

Now, Glock is not cheap for a 9mm $595.00; however, since purchasing my first Glock 9mm in 1994 for almost the same amount of money. Thge shocker overtime, price usually rises with the Glock 19 they have not; but, it depends on the stores sellng them too. I have seen locally Glock 9mm with no mods, selling from 650 to 1000 dollars and that was used!

I think with the Military or LEO discount, new Glocks can be had in the $300 range. For a shooting site that does training, that is a drop in the bucket for them to spend and hock to their "students".

Even so, there are hundreds of thousands of LEO trade in Glocks out there, heavily used, but still very much capable for cheaper than $500.

I was just merely stating that in comparison, buying and torturing a Glock is a price that can be swallowed by someone willing to burn through 1000 rounds in 20 minutes.

Up until recently, the LE (or military price) for a standard Glock was $398.20 + tax. It recently went up to about $425 I think. Yes, as retired military I can get a Glock this cheap - but my question has always been why?
