All in how you use em I guess. Have loaded and shot hundreds of rounds out of mine with ZERO malfunctions. Of course I don't drop em often..but when I do I have yet to have em puke their load. I like em, load easy and go bang when I trip the trigger...
As with everything, it is a choice and some like, some don't. Best of luck with what ever you use.

try shooting lead bullets out of a glock then we can talk try googling glock fail to feed. glock reliability is pretty much one of those interweb myths

not afraid of change i just dont like getting ripped off on a sub-par product. if you have had good luck with them more power to ya.

watching the behind the scenes show of sons of guns and one of the tards on the show just dropped a pmag out of an ar15 and two rounds popped out when it hit the table from about a foot and a half up...

Shot lead reloads for years in competition. Ran 4lk of WWB through my G17 in two days without a hitch. Ran over 20k through it total without as much as a spring change.

I can only talk from my own experience (or at least I choose to) and I've never been disappointed with Glocks or pmags

Trusting a plastic magazine can only be accomplished by a man who's never had to perform a 3 To 5 second rush.

I watched that episode and he didn't seat the magazine all the way and pulled the charge handle and the magazine dropped. The round that came out was from being partially grabbed by the bolt.

So you really feel that way or are you just trying to get people worked up?

I really feel that way. I used to carry an A2 and often had to hit the ground in a hurry. I was always cautious of not letting my GI mags hit the ground while doing this because I did not trust the light gauge metal. Don't see how I could be comfortable with plastic?

I'm sure plastic mags are ok for range use but when things get ugly, guns get dropped, or fallen upon, used as clubs, ect...

I like metal mags because they never failed me under harsh conditions. They're proven.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

My .02 cents

Tack

Well my experience with pmags is that they are the best plastic mag out there. And the price ain't bad.

Just ask linuxuser, his friend threw a fully loaded pmag down and nothing happened. Then we shot it out 2 days later.

The tapco AR mags are not that good. I've got one that got broke because a dumb kid sat on it in the back seat...
