I don't believe the Palm Beach story. If one police department had massive weapon failures, wouldn't it follow that this would be a universal problem across many police departments throughout the country? Since Glock is used by more LEO than any other weapon produced, I am sure this issue you are blowing out of proportion would be a huge discussion on this and other forums. I haven't seen it. I recently dumped my M&P's because they aren't right for me, but I don't complain about them. I go with Glock & Ruger because of their unsurpassed reliability and the customer service is second to none.
Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. My rod is a GLOCK and it comforts me
