True. But you would also have thought Glock would have kept it under wraps until all the bugs were out, but nope. They knew that they were having issues and they released it anyway. A municipal PD in my jurisdiction took their shiny new Gen4's out for training and qualification and found 4 different guns were completely inoperable and others had major extraction issues. And by the way those guns were late 2011 production.

Its a 500$ glock not a 3000$ nighthawk. What do you expect?

Are you being serious? I would expect any gun marketed and sold in the US to law enforcement and civilians with a price tag higher than $200 to work right out of the box.

If you are not dead set on a Glock I suggest the S&W M&P9. The M&P9 is a little easier for a new shooter to start with. Not saying one is better than the other, just that the M&P9 is a little more ergonomic and the grip angle is more natural.
