He could send this gun to Glock and tell them it misfires when they test the gun they find that it does not misfire and send it back. Then he shoots himself in the leg and bitches about Glock's incompetence. This happens all the time, you need to be able to describe accurately what is happening if you expect the company to help you.
Good answer

well that's the beauty of America. anyone can sue anyone else for whatever reason they dream up. if it ever got as far as a jury, and they see it for how it happened, that he knew there was a problem with said firearm and continued to carry it then "accidently" shot himself in the leg while holstering it. i kind of doubt they will award him for being stupid.

thing is, you seem to have knowledge of it, but failed to take appropriate steps to prevent it in the first place. so IMO, you are at fault here also. you take action after the fact and come off as being some type of safe acting person. sorry not from my veiwpoint. you knew and allowed him to continue carrying an unsafe firearm. as far as i'm concerned, both of you are at fault.

Bottom line is I certainly cannot say that these stories are exaggerated but I have never had an issue with a Glock & nor do even know of anyone that has had an issue with a Glock.
My 34 was eFFing up alot for a while. But, there's nothing stock about it.

Well he didn't say he was his father, but in some ways I suspose he may have been an enabler. He probably should have refused to be around him while in posession of that weapon. However, hindsight is always crystal clear. His defense (though weak) was that it only happened 6 times in 4yrs, then he also said that IT happened 4 times in 1 year. Regardless I suspect both of em will be very cautious from this point forward. I do have that much faith in most of humanity...lol

I did inform him to get the gun fixed and ya I'm not his dad I'm not gonna force a grown man to do something and as I said I moved out immediately I'm not trying to put down glocks or start an argument just sayin what happened I see where your coming from but there was nothing I could do in terms of making him fix the fire arm

As far as how many times it happened I'm not exactly sure how many times it happened but I know it was not enough to make him worry but one time should have been enough :/ even I won't know the exact details just glad he's no longer my roommate

I may be just nit picking and if I am, I'm sorry but I don't this is how friendships work, at least mine and if they did, I'd find another buddy. If My Bro said "Hey Dallas, I don't think that weapon is safe, I wouldn't shoot it, you should have it looked at" Me: "Really? you think it's that serious?" Buddy: "Yea, man, I wouldn't carry it or shoot it until it's looked at, I know a guy, he's good, here's his number" If I didn't or he didn't immediately take heed to my advice, I'd say either he doesn't trust me or doesn't take me seriously, in either case, that's insulting and I'd never purposefully insult my friend in such a disrespectful manner. Does that make sense?

Weibelhaus, it makes perfect sense to me and i agree. kind of like the old saying, "friends don't let friends drive drunk, they take the keys"
